Bubba and Squirt’s Mayan Adventure and Latin Flavors Blogfest

What is your favorite Latin-flavor recipe?

One thing I remember very fondly from living in Albuquerque, NM for four years is getting authentic Buñuelos at the state fair every year. We’d track down the Hispanic food center and chow down on at least two delicious treats. And they were big, too. They are similar to sopaipillas but flat and round.

Here is a recipe for Buñuelos.

Now, get excited – today is release day for Bubba and Squirt’s Mayan Adventure by Sherry Ellis!

An Ancient Mayan civilization!

That’s what Bubba and Squirt find when they travel through the mysterious vortex for another wild adventure. There they meet archeologists who are unearthing priceless artifacts.

But someone is stealing them. And an encounter with the Tate Duende awakens magic within Bubba. Throw in the mysterious Alux and a new discovery and things get sticky.

Will Bubba and Squirt solve the mystery, or will they be stuck forever in the jungles of Belize?

Thank you for hosting it. They are really similar to sopaipillas - you put honey and powdered sugar on them.

Many congrats, Sherry and Di. Sounds like another winner.

Those Buñuelos look delicious! AND they're making me hungry:)

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Sherry's new book sounds terrific! I wish her much success with it, and I hope her Bubba and Squirt adventure series continues to soar for many years.

My favorite Latin-like food would have to be quesadillas. Filled with shrimp, spinach, mushrooms, pickled red onions and lots of cheese. Truly decadent.

Have a super weekend.

Congratulations Sherry youre making it so! Remember Isaac Asimov wrote 500 books like a demon so it helps getting your name out there, second star to the right and as far across the galaxy as you can.

What a fun new book! And that food looks delicious. I love going to places I've never been and sampling food I've never experienced before. (Especially appetizers and desserts.)

I am excited for the upcoming YA scavenger book hunt (YASH), and for the Pass or Pages query contest at Operation Awesome with the YA category this October. I hope you've been staying healthy and thriving as best as you can this year.
