Francisca Gonzalez, better known as Pancha, Panchita or Panchola, is my maternal grandmother.
For over 80 years Panchita delighted us with her delicious recipes. I strongly believe that my grandmother’s secret ingredient was the great love she had to give. I have created this blog to pay homage to Panchita and her wonderful influence in my life, and to continue sharing her love with family and friends.
Here you will find many of my grandma’s recipes, as well as others that I have been collecting along the way. I hope you enjoy cooking with my grandma’s recipes, and I hope that by sharing these recipes and stories with you, Panchita’s legacy will live on, not only in the hearts of those who knew her but also by keeping alive that tradition established by her of showing her love through her cooking.
