Ericka's website launched in 2010 and revolves around her life as a bicultural Latina living in Los Angeles.

Her website and recipes were part of the Babble top 100 food bloggers for 2012 and 2013 and featured in Oprah Daily, Parents Latina, Taste of Home, Eating Well, Cosmopolitan for Latinas, Woman's Day, SHAPE, Food 52, Yummly, Latina, and Simply Recipes.
