“Cooking and sharing my recipes with those I LOVE is what truly makes me happy. Ironically it took me a while to realize how much I love to cook. As a working Mother and small business owner I guess I was always rushing around and never had time to think much about what really makes me happy.”

“I value the time I spend with my children and family, I cherish the time we spend talking and eating around the dinner table. This is so important, especially when we work so hard, the time together is a true treasure.”

“It is filled with delicious recipes inspired from my home state right here in New Mexico. With a variety of influences including our border country Mexico, the book will include some traditional dishes to an assortment of modern and innovative recipes that I have created myself. I am inspired to share my love through cooking and celebration of family.” - Cecelia Dardanes on her cookbook “Flavors of the Southwest”
