    Great choice and real Trailblazer indeed, her delicious recipes are a mix of Old-School Abuelita cooking & health-minded creativeness with a large portion of culinary genius, which creates her signature cooking style and is fitted for any kitchen- Home or Professional. Though my chances to taste her delicacies, have been nowhere near what I’d love to have, I have been priveged to have several opportunities. She also possesses a most amicable warmth in her being, which is complemented by her beauty and personality. Based on the aforementioned facts, I am convinced her trailblazing days have a long road ahead. Abrazos Fuertes y siga triunfosa, Daisy!
