Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack, together with her sister, Veronica Gonzalez-Smith, and their mother Evangelina Soza are responsible for the popular blog Muy Bueno. Born and raised in El Paso, Texas, the trio learned to cook from their grandmother and mother, Jesusita Mendias-Soza, whose hospitality and irresistible Mexican recipes were legendary among family and friends. They started the Muy Bueno Cookbook blog to celebrate and preserve their family's special culinary heritage. The blog and recipes have been featured in Latina magazine, and the websites of Paula Deen, The Pioneer Woman, SAVEUR, and Gourmet. Though now Yvette resides in Denver, Colorado, Veronica has moved to Germany, and Evangelina remains in her hometown El Paso, Texas, the three of them meet as often as possible to share the delicious food and steadfast family bond that inspired Muy Bueno.
