Get to know Muy Bueno Cookbook author & blogger Yvette! Posted @withregram • @muybuenocooking

Hola amigos! It’s been a while, and I wanted to say hola! For those of you who don’t know me… My name is Yvette and I’m the home cook and blogger behind muybuenocookbook.com and social media pages. I developed Muy Bueno in 2010 with one thing in mind: To share my recipes with others. From my plate, to yours.

Just as my grandma used to invite people to her kitchen table to sit down and eat, I want to do the same (virtually). My grandma used to say, “Siéntate a comer, esta muy bueno” (Sit down and eat, it’s very good).

I’m from El Paso, Texas and my grandma was born in Chihuahua, Mexico. I am a second-generation Mexican-American. I have so many fond memories sitting in my grandmas cozy cocina.

Here on Muy Bueno, I share a collection of traditional Mexican recipes. These are my precious family’s recipes that have been passed down through generations. I also share modern Latin-fusion recipes that I have developed. Thanks to my grandma, who I know is watching over me, I feel that maybe, just maybe, she whispers a few words of encouragement into my ears to help me find my way around la cocina and turn out a recipe worthy of her praise.

I wanted to thank everyone who has followed my journey, y bienvenidos to anyone who is new to my virtual home. There is nothing that brings me more joy than reading all your lovely comments and stories of making my recipes. YES, I read every single comment (even the not so nice comments). I might not have the time to reply to them all, but please know I do read them.

Please don’t be a stranger. Let me know when you make my recipes and share your stories with me. And if you don’t have something nice to say, maybe don’t say anything at all.

I leave you with my favorite quote…

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”― Maya Angelou

NEW RELEASE:
Kikongo (Kongo) Dictionary & Phrasebook

Kikongo is a Bantu language spoken by over 5 million people worldwide, primarily in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Republic of the Congo, and Angola. Kikongo was spoken by many from this region who were sold into slavery in the Americas. Thus creolized forms of the language can be found in the ritual speech of Afro-American religions, especially in Brazil, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Haiti. It is also one of the sources of the Palenquerocreole in Colombia, and the Gullah language, spoken in coastal regions of South Carolina and Georgia.

This 2-part resource includes a bilingual dictionary with 4,000 entries + a phrasebook that covers a variety of topics for business, travel, students, and aid workers.

Beginner's Croatian with Online Audio: A Book Review

A very thorough, thoughtful review of BEGINNER’S CROATIAN WITH ONLINE AUDIO from Ad Librum Aeternam :

“An affordable and modern guide to learn Croatian as a beginner from Hippocrene Books. It is made up of fifteen amusing lessons with colloquial dialogues, grammatical units, vocabulary and verb lists, and audio files in MP3 format (downloadable on their website). It features a History overview of Croatia, a bilingual glossary, declension tables, exercises and answer keys.”

I’ve been a fan of Hippocrene Books for a few years now, following them on social media and craving their books. As a polyglot, their books, both language learning guides and cultural books, seemed to be of quality and they’re quite varied. They cover languages rarely tackled by other language p...

How Learning a Language Changes Your Brain

Improve your brain health by learning a new language!

“In other words, when you learn a new language, your brain gets rearranged, new connections are made and new pathways are formed.”

Picking up a new language — at any age — creates new pathways that could also make you a better person and may even help stave off dementia.
