One of my favorite memories with Grandma is anytime she was in the kitchen because it inevitably meant that she was making some sort of grandma cooking deliciousness. My favorite thing that she would make were her chicken taquitos. A fresh rotisserie chicken shredded by hand, and then wrapped in a corn tortilla and lastly fried in some canola oil. I don't know what made those taquitos so damn good other than the concept of making it with love. Grandma had other amazing impacts in my life but her food is something I will try to make the rest of my life so hopefully with each bite I'll be able to relive a precious memory I've shared with her. I love you grandma and you will be missed.
