HELLO and welcome to my delicious blog! Let’s get inspired in the kitchen with food to make you feel HAPPY, motivated and full of energy!

My name is Eartha (@earthacooks: see ABOUT). My mission here is to create, educate and entertain through my love for food. Healthy can start right here. All you’ll need is a good knife, an open mind, and your appetite.
