Cheese guys! My absolute favorite food in the world is Mexican and this is a book filled with 50 queso recipes! What more could I want in life? Well, let’s start out with Queso! by Lisa Fain, popular food blogger, being a book full of recipes, yes. But it’s also history and backgrounds on each of the recipes. Informative and delicious! You should read the text while eating one of the recipes of queso you made.

I love this book because there is something for everyone. All different types of queso recipes with different ingredients. Some feature more high end cheeses or ingredients, while others are for backyard get togethers. Different levels of spiciness will cater to everyone’s personal favorites and I truly think this is the best for all people. I tried a couple of the recipes and loved them all. They were rich, spicy, had a kick, creamy, and cheesy! A cheese lovers dream!

Enough about cheese. Lisa Fain offers up a great cookbook here that is filled with interesting information about origins and more while you enjoy a tasty treat. The perfect cookbook for families to enjoy a treat together, prepare for a cookout, or a big football game on Sundays.


Queso! by Lisa Fain will be available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble on September 26th. Make sure to get a copy for yourself and a friend and leave feedback for the author when you are finished.
