When I first heard that Sandra Gutierrez  was writing a new book, my first thought was the same as I had when I got her first book: It is going to be amazing. And guess what? Empanadas: The Hand-Held Pies of Latin America is as amazing and as comforting as it sounds. A beautiful book by an amazing author!

You will have a chance to enter to win the featured book and, as a bonus, will receive my new book, A Life of Spice, as well!
