Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack is the Latina blogger, recipe developer, food stylist, photographer, writer and YouTube video producer behind the award-winning site, MuyBuenoCookbook.com. Founded in 2010, the blog began as a journey of writing a cookbook and has evolved into a place where she develops Latin-inspired recipes, including those that pay homage to her Mexican heritage.
She is the co-author of two books: Muy Bueno: Three Generations of Authentic Mexican Flavor and Latin Twist: Traditional & Modern Cocktails.
She has been featured locally and nationally by a variety of digital media outlets and print publications including People En Español, TODAY, Siempre Mujer and Gourmet. She is also proud to be recognized as a top food blogger by Latina magazine, Cosmopolitan for Latinas, NBC Latino, The Latin Kitchen, Babble, The Kitchn and Saveur.
She has devoted her life to her three passions. First, above all else, is her family. But when she is working, she is devoted to developing healthy Latin-inspired recipes, and to educating others about how to enjoy traditional cultural cuisine in a healthful way while keeping traditions alive. She lives in the beautiful state of Colorado with her husband and two children.
