Who: Ericka Sanchez, a mother of one son living in Los Angeles
Why we love this blog: This bilingual blog follows Sanchez’s life and eating adventures in Los Angeles. We love Sanchez because she’s not afraid to experiment with frequently overlooked ingredients. Sure, you may have to spend some extra time digging up the makings of hibiscus flower and raspberry gelatin, but you’ll be happy you did. She offers some of the most original recipes on the web (see rose petal and almond ice pops) and creates edible inventions you won’t find anywhere else.
