This week we bring you five of our favorite Latina food bloggers. With the fall holiday rollout coming fast, now’s the time to bookmark a few great recipe sites with a Latin twist.
Their backgrounds are varied, from Peruvian to Mexican to Puerto Rican, but what they share is a passion for healthy, delicious food that you can easily prepare at home. Several of these ladies have written recipes exclusively for HipLatina—all of which are available in our archives.
