One of the perks of social media is you meet new food lovers every day, cool people, food people these are the best!
I met Sonia online when I was still very new to this world of blogging over at Hispanic Kitchen where we both shared recipes, great food and special family moments. I liked her right away I mean her plate’s rock! We connected over email when I asked if I could share one of her recipes. She’s sweet.

Recently she emailed me and shared she is in the works of launching her own food blog.
