My Colombian Recipes

My name is Erica Dinho and I was born and raised in Medellin, Colombia and I now live in the northeastern United States with my husband and family. I am not a professional chef, but I love to cook! So, in 2009 I created, a recipe blog consisting of Colombian recipes, as well as many other great tasting recipes from around the world.

My hope is that people from other countries discover Colombian food and learn more about our culture and traditions. Buen Provecho!
