Yvette draws culinary inspiration from her grandmother's old-world northern Mexican recipes and her mother's comforting south of the border home-style dishes. Though she writes primarily about her culinary adventures on her blog, muybuenocookbook.com
, she also contributes recipes to Betty Crocker and Clabber Girl and works as a recipe developer with IMUSA and Princess House. Her cookbook Muy Bueno: Three Generations of Authentic Mexican Flavor (Hippocrene Books
), written with her sister Veronica and mother Evangelina, was published in October 2012. Besides her blog, Yvette has also been featured in Latina magazine, People en Español, Cosmopolitan for Latinas, and the websites of NBC Latino, The Pioneer Woman, Saveur, The Kitchn, and Gourmet Live. She lives in Colorado with her husband and two children.
