Hi, I’m Margarita founder of MASPANADAS. My husband Andy and I were raising our three boys while trying to keep up with our busy professional lives, and failing at finding healthier, tasty family meal options that fit in between business calls, soccer games and carpools.
I grew up in Colombia playing in my father’s kitchen, he owned a restaurant that featured typical Colombian food like Bandeja Paisa, Sancocho, Arroz con Pollo, Arepas and of course EMPANADAS! I learned from a young age, food isn’t just fuel for the body but a chance to taste life.
Andy is a native Virginian, and a true foodie with a passion for both the art and the science of cooking. By combining my Latin food roots, Andy’s passion for modern American cuisine, and A LOT of testing, MASPANADAS was born, along with a simple mission:
TO MAKE REAL FOOD TO FUEL REAL LIFE IN THE FAST LANE
