I’m drooling. She’s hinted at a side project she’s doing which clearly focuses on what’s really important in life. Pastelitos on pastelitos. ?
Yo, this kid, Jose, is only 16 years old.

Ok, in her own words: “Tender, butter-flavored pastries from heaven overloaded with the most delicious farm-fresh eggs combined with roasted green chile, slices of avocados, tomatoes, and ooey-gooey melted queso Oaxaca.”
Seriously, her cookies look to pretty to eat. She makes very realistic Mexican flags, elotes, and lotería cards. I want to say I could never bear to eat them, but who am I kidding.

Daniela Galarza is the news editor of Eater and is a self-described “curious cook, baker, eater, reader, editor, writer.” She posts a mix of savory and sweet but is the first to tell the world that her favorite assignment was to write about cookies.

Her instagram is b e a u t i f u l and she’s not afraid to share modern twists on ‘ugly delicious’ foods of our childhood like sunny side up eggs and toast. This is the Latinx egg toast we actually want.
Dora Stable is making it her mission to share vegan Mexican recipes. I mean, most Mexican food is already vegan, but she takes it to the next level with homemade vegan chorizo, jackfruit vegan pozole and rajas con crema.
Jessika Lauren, the founder of @courtesancupcakes, was seen on “Cupcake Wars.” She lives and produces this edible art in Los Angeles, and everything she makes is vegan. She’ll also print almost any image on a cupcake, so she’s my go-to for themed parties.

Spiced with chili, these chocolate chip ice cream cookies are just a drop in the bucket for @brenherrera’s account. Bren Herrera can cook, sing, write, and is a pro at making me hungry. Follow her for kahlúa flan and to see the life of a Puerto Vallarta chef.
