Holiday Cookbook

This year, our courage and creativity shined as we took on new routines and found new ways to connect, persevere and grow. So, we took on new interests, rekindled the fire of old hobbies, dusted off our comfort food recipes, and also discovered delicious new ones.

It is our hope that this finds you and yours in good health, good spirits, and with big appetites as we share a few of our own stories and recipes from our 26th edition of the Lopez Negrete Familia Tasty Treasures Holiday Cookbook.

More than ever, we embrace this holiday season as it carries us into the next chapter with its joyous spirit and meaning.

Thank you for inspiring us, for being part of our journey, and for continuing to positively impact our lives, every day, in so many ways. We wish you a holiday season abundant in peace, joy and health.

A sanctuary around the seasons we’d gather
Days turning into months unexpected

Reasons to prepare a new delicious holiday dish
Comforting aromas gently wafting into each room
A gift that will live with us ‘til the ends of the moon
