The Isleños: Thank You!

Thank you to Mike and Donna Martin for sending my book to the Canary Islands off the north coast of Africa! You have to read about this awesome couple who are descendants of the first Spanish Settlers to New Orleans, the Isleños. Every year they throw the best festival with bacon wrapped plantains, paella and charbroiled oysters fresh from the bayou. We visited their home that Mike built for his wife and it is to die for! You should have seen her closet that he built her!!!! And the dishes they made for the book..slap yo mama good!
