For the past six to eight months I've been working on finishing my Mexico City cookbook, which is finally complete. (More on that shortly.) But the biggest news of all is... I had a baby! Tomás was born two months ago. So far motherhood has been challenging, exhausting and, at the beginning, terrifying -- who was I to take care of this little being? Lately I've started to chill out a bit and realize that none of us actually know what we're doing. The key for me has been to keep trying. And to soak up all the joy that hits me when he smiles. Mija is now a mom.
