Vanessa Mota is the founder of My Dominican Kitchen, a bilingual platform that helps busy parents put together tasty, traditional Dominican and Latin-inspired meals.
Vanessa is passionate about creating quick and easy versions of the recipes she grew up eating. She loves to share them with those who want to cook meals filled with Latin flavors but that don’t take a ton of time to prepare.
It is her mission to show you how to make great, flavorful dishes at home without spending the entire day in the kitchen.
