This week I get to introduce you to Jen from Juanita’s Cocina! We had an absolute blast with her design! I loved the vibrant colors, the glitter, the salsa feel. It was a blast! And Jen was one of the nicest clients to work with too. Click on over and check out her site!
Jen, Juanita’s Cocina
Explain the meaning behind the name of your blog.
Juanita's Cocina is a blend of my humor and heritage. My real name is Jen. When I was younger, I wanted to have a Spanish translation for my name. But, my father told me that there was no true translation for "Jen". He said the closest translation would be, "Juanita". I hated the name Juanita, because I thought it sounded ugly.
When I started my food blog, I dreamt that my blog's name was Juanita's Cocina. I thought the name was perfect...and a wonderful tribute to my father and my heritage.

What do you love most blogging?
I love the relationships I've formed through blogging. This was the most surprising part of blogging. Who knew that all of these anonymous people on the internet would become friends and confidants?
