Fell in love with the kitchen after I took the vegan leap *_^ Mad variety I was unaware of. Always experimenting now. Thx for the New Birth Disco gem :D Funny how a song can bring you back to an era.
The power of music.

Thankyou Senor Trujillo ^_^

It was a good day. I need to make calzones and empanadas in advance then freeze them for the days I can't be bothered to bake from scratch :P
Have you peeped Lots of interesting herbivorous perspectives. I'll be glad to drop some recommended recipes in the mailbox if you're struck by any experimental urges. Let a sistah know.

Also, I'm sending Q&A questions this week.
Please pardon the slight delay. Multitasking at present.

Shine on

Peace *_^

I'd love to collab on a recipe. Is your target audience younger, older, or both? I can come up with something fun for the chil'ren also if you're wanting to gather several recipes for Come Bien books *_^ Let me know what you have in mind. Most things can be veganized pretty easily.

Also, I will def be contacting you for illustration and collabs in general :D

If you have projects or articles in mind that need a writer let me know. With the exception of bulk-reviews [depending on the work being reviewed *_^], I'm all about it.

Much Respect &Appreciation Sir Trujillo
