9. La Cocina de Leslie 1
Leslie Limón was born and raised in Southern California on the delicious Mexican food her grandparents grew up eating in Sonora and Chihuahua. When she got married, she moved to a small town in Mexico where she "learned that not all Mexican food is the same and that it varies from state to state and sometimes even region to region." La Cocina de Leslie offers a wonderful collection of traditional Mexican recipes as well as "Mexican-inspired" recipes that Leslie prepares for her family.
