Sara is a food lover, mama of two, wife to her best friend and crafter at heart. Born in Mexico City, she grew up surrounded by food. Cooking is in her DNA. After graduating from culinary school in her hometown, she had a once in a lifetime opportunity to transfer to Arizona for work in the hotel industry.

When she is not in the kitchen, she is probably making arts and crafts with her kids or binge watching Netflix with her hubby.
