A third-generation restaurateur and daughter of Mexican immigrants, LaLa grew up in the kitchens of her family’s California-based eateries and inherited her father’s talents at the stove. Before following in his footsteps, she briefly studied to become a cardio-pulmonary therapist, but quickly realized it wasn’t the right career for her.
Still, LaLa’s interest in health was never far from mind, even as she enrolled in the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu and went on to found her own catering company, Savor! Caterers, serving A-List Celebrities, VIPs in entertainment and politics, including two U.S. Presidents and a President of Mexico, Vicente Fox.
Two forces in LaLa’s life profoundly influenced her thoughts about food and her career: One was her constant battle with her weight. The other was her family’s history of diabetes, the complications of which claimed the lives of both of her grandmothers and one of her grandfathers. Looking for ways to make cuisine more healthful, she has continually taken courses to improve her nutritional knowledge and is certified as a specialist in fitness nutrition, kids’ nutrition, and lifestyle and weight management.
Whether she’s teaching nutritious cooking at a Farmer’s Market or on a television show, LaLa is on fire with her desire to share everything she has learned to make people’s lives healthier and happier–one meal at a time.

Joseph Francis "Joe" Buck (born April 25, 1969) is an American sportscaster and the son of sportscaster Jack Buck. He has won numerous Sports Emmy Awards for his play-by-play work with Fox Sports.
Buck called play-by-play for the then-Louisville Redbirds, a minor league affiliate of the Cardinals, and was a reporter for ESPN's coverage of the Triple-A All-Star Game. In 1991, Buck did reporting for St Louis' CBS affiliate KMOV. Also, in 1991 Joe followed in his father's footsteps by broadcasting for the Cardinals on local television and KMOX Radio, filling in while his father was working on CBS telecasts. In the 1992–95 season he was the color commentator for University of Missouri basketball broadcasts.
Buck continued to call Cardinals games after being hired by Fox, initially with his father on KMOX and later on FSN Midwest television. As his network duties increased, however, Buck's local workload shrunk, and prior to the 2008 season it was announced that Buck would no longer be calling Cardinals telecasts for FSN Midwest. This would mark the first time since 1960 that a member of the Buck family would not be part of the team's broadcasting crew.
