  1. My sister is a jack of many trades. And, I don’t master none. She’s good at bartendering. I’m gonna practice your Blackberry drink, until I get it right. I’m retired and bored. Raised on Soul food, and love Mexican food. Gonna take a long trip first, then come back home and learn to cook some food from your recipes. I enjoy your shows.

  2. I truly enjoy your cooking show and I have made your Pozole Rojo a couple of times.
    I love it and so does my family. I also love the fact that you Rick add your Family, Wife, Daughter onto your shows. Please keep up the great work!
