Cooking on the Weekends with Valentina

With so many food blogs online and new ones popping up everyday, sometimes it’s hard to sift through them all to find a true, honest to goodness, quality food blogger.

Are you looking for someone who is posting whole food recipes which have actually been made with their own hands, and who is also so skilled in their craft and photography, that you just want to run to your kitchen to make whatever has been posted that day? Well, let me do you a favor and tell you that I’ll save you some sifting…go to my friend Valentina’s blog, Cooking on the Weekends, and you’ll see what I mean.

Valentina describes her blog as cooking creative, comforting food for casual entertaining, but it’s so much more than that.  I am constantly in awe of her talents (check out her photos!) and do not know how she cranks out so many delicious recipes, while also wearing many other hats, but mostly just by being a mom of two young boys. That’s an overtime job in itself!

Here is an example of one of her delicious dishes~

You won’t just find Valentina posting on her blog because she’s a contributor to many other sites, like PopSugar, and has had her recipes featured in the Huffington Post, The Kitchn and PBS Food, just to name a few. You can also find her on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest (links on her blog)…oh, and tell her Christina sent you! :)

    Christina, thank you SO MUCH for this. You are so, so kind, and I’m just so flattered that you thought to share my site with your readers. Christina’s Cucina is one of my favorite foodie spots to visit, as well. I’m smiling ear to ear. :-D xoxo

    I agree 100% with Christina, Valentina’s site is a ‘go to’ site. Plus she creates a ton of vegetarian recipes that I can send along to my niece.
