Calling for Cookbook Recipe Testers!

The Muy Bueno Cookbook is well under way. I have been working hard refining my manuscript, testing, cooking, styling, and photo shoots.

The cookbook will take some time before it’s completed, of course. And then it will take some time before it is published too. It will include authentic Mexican recipes, stories, and pictures.

I’m looking for a few recipe testers to help out with….um….recipe testing.

If you’re interested in recipe testing, please comment below. I’m looking for honest feedback on specifics of the recipe and final dish.

Your help would be most appreciated and yes, your name will be in the book!

    If we end up in Colorado for new years then maybe we can be taste testers :-)

    • muybuenocookbook replied: — August 28th, 2010 @ 7:39 pm

      I need virtual tasters :)
      I need people to make my recipes and provide feedback. If you are interested in cooking all that is Muy Bueno in your kitchen please let me know.

    Ok- does this really, really include ANYONE? If so, I might just dust off the kitchen.

    • muybuenocookbook replied: — August 29th, 2010 @ 4:00 am

      It absolutely does!!! What recipe would you like to tackle first? I’ll email you a recipe along with a survey form for your feedback.

    I’ll do it! We can be like Julie & Julia… you know, Juana & Juanita – haha!

    When I get home I’ll make the enchilada recipe you posted and let you know how it goes.

      Gina: I just watched that movie for the first time last night? LOVED it! Now I’m really inspired — it was soooo my story ;) Did you try the enchiladas? I would love for you to test them. Once you do I’ll email you a survey form for you to fill out.

    I am interested in doing the recipe testing if you are still looking, I live in a large Mexican community so it should be fun.


    • muybuenocookbook replied: — September 5th, 2010 @ 6:58 am

      Hi Paula,

      Feel free to try any of the recipes posted. Once you make one be sure to let me know and I’ll send you a survey form for you to fill out. I’m honored that you found my blog and want to try my recipes!

    I’d love to test some recipes out!! I’m a vegetarian so if the recipies contain meat, I would have to substitute for veggie meat or tofu or lentils, but I think it would be lots of fun!! :)

    • Natasha replied: — September 3rd, 2010 @ 9:35 pm

      Goodness, I have terrible spelling on Friday afternoons! *recipe

      I’m planning a trip to South and Central America so it would be fun to test out a few authentic Mexican recipes while doing some trip planning :)

      • muybuenocookbook replied: — September 5th, 2010 @ 7:00 am

        Hi Natasha,

        If you have a meal in mind let me know and I’ll be happy to send it to you for your feedback. Would love to heard your experience as a vegetarian. The Enchiladas Verdes are AWESOME if made without chicken. You will LOVE them!!!

    Yvette, I was just thinking do you have any recipes for different pan dulces? I am working on perfecting my marranitos but would love to try out any others you may have.


    • muybuenocookbook replied: — September 8th, 2010 @ 12:48 pm

      Hi Sylvia,

      WOW, now you have me craving pan dulce with my coffee. Darn it! LOL! My family never really made pan dulce — we always ran to our nearest panaderia. But that is a GREAT idea! I am going to try it out and when I do I’ll let you know.

    I am *so* going to try these with a vegetarian adaptation … and in regard to specific recipes, I am down for making anything Mexican, as long as there’s no meat! (Although I do eat fish and I love me a good fish taco recipe.)

    • muybuenocookbook replied: — September 9th, 2010 @ 9:08 pm


      Stay tuned!!! An amazing Pan Fried Tilapia with Mango and Avocado Salsa recipe will be posted this month :)

    Will you ship samples to Superior, WI?

    I would love to test a recipe or a few! I have been “unofficially” testing recipes for around 26 years, with my whole family voting on the results, and it has been fun! We love Mexican food and I would like to especially try bean dishes or different types of salsas.

    Amanda — September 21, 2010 @ 3:33 pm

    Okay, I am also veg, and I realize this post is about a month old so you’re probably all good, but I LOVE cooking from cookbooks (I have a purchasing habit that has my husband mumbling about on-line recipe availability at least once a week).

    If you still need people and would like another veg tester, I am good to go. I am definitely making your Enchiladas verdes this weekend (my local tortilleria only makes the fresh ones on weekends, and I am now a lame tortilla snob because they are right around the corner), and could happily provide you with feedback about that. If there’s anything else you want tested, PLEASE don’t hesitate to send!

    • muybuenocookbook replied: — September 22nd, 2010 @ 6:34 pm

      Amanda: I’d love to hear your feedback on the enchilada recipe!!! Once you try them out let me know and I can email you a survey form.

    • muybuenocookbook replied: — September 22nd, 2010 @ 6:26 pm

      Raja: Feel free to make any of the recipes on the site and email me your feedback. There will be more recipes posted soon. If there is a Mexican recipe that you want to try and it is not posted email me and I can see if I have it on file for the book. Thanks for wanting to try a bit of my culture.

    Have you already found enough testers? I’m sure this is old, but thought I’d try….
