Hi Brett - this is a great site! Thanks so much for turning us on to it. Love the drawings. Reminds me a bit of Keri Smith's work - http://www.kerismith.com/blog/, but all about food.

Ximena is a wonderful illustrator and such a great person! I'm so very glad for this post. Heck, I'm glad for both of you!

Ximena left me a comment a few weeks ago and I have been visiting her gorgeous site ever since. Thank you for highlighting the site.

Maybe we should ask her what she's doing at the end of August...


Hi there, I could not thank you enough for posting about Lobstersquad. I stumbled across this sight not too long ago and absolutely loved it. However during a momentary lapse of amnesia, I could not for the life of me remember the site's name. So thanks for reminding me!!

hi brett, cool huh, ximena's blog? btw, i just posted something on la tortilla! check it out!! besos, k


I agree. I LOVE her blog. Her drawings are utterly divine.


I haven't commented before but I enjoy your blog. Thanks for turning me on to Lobstersquad. I had been wishing for a food blog from Spain written in English. I have never been to Spain, but am so in love with its culture and cuisine that I plan to move there eventually with my husband. I have been loving your photos as well. thanks,


I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
