  1. You are fabulous Pati, I am so happy you have a show and have become so successful!
    Sometime ago I sent you a request for your version of a dish my grandmother, Edna, liked and somehow talked little me (7) to try. I didn’t like it that much but whenever my family visited her we had that dish served to us and I liked the flavor more with each visit. She called it Calavacita. I believe it was made with several different peppers and yellow squash but I’ve
    never been able to make it to taste the way I remember it tasting. I asked you if you had a recipe for the dish. You did kindly answer me that it wasn’t a dish you were were familiar with.
    Have you in the few years since I wrote you, had it on your travels in Mexico ? I guess it could have been a family recipe which was popular in her home’s area: Nuevo Laredo, Mexico & Laredo,Texas. It is good the way I make it but Grandmom’s was much better!
    I can’t understand why my mom never got the recipe. I hope you don’t mind that I’m
    Asking you again.
    I intend to order one or both of your cookbooks…… I really like your show.
    Thank you again and stay safe!

    1. Hi Judith, thanks for your message! I still don’t know very well which dish your grandma prepared 🙁 I know about one that is done with Zucchini and pork in a tomato based sauce that once I try in Mexico, but I also do not have a recipe for it at this time.
      I hope you order the cookbook, you will have lots of fun cooking out of it! Stay safe as well!
