Ericka Sanchez is the creator and recipe developer for the bilingual blog Nibbles and Feasts. Born in Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico, Ericka’s blog revolves around her life as a bicultural Latina living in Los Angeles with her husband and son. Ericka’s love of cooking began as a child at her grandmother’s miscellanea (convenience store and food stand) in Mexico where she spent most of her summers assisting in making salsas, bolis and guisados. Nibbles and Feasts began as a way to catalog recipes and cherished memories in the kitchen with her grandmother and mother throughout the years. Now, her writing has lead her to reconnect with her Mexican roots by developing her own twist on traditional recipes for the busy mom who still wants to make time to learn how to make tortillas from scratch between yoga class and answering emails.
