Costa Kitchen was born from my love of food, photography and entertaining. In the past I’ve struggled with body issues and this blog is a way for me to document my recipes which are yummy and also happen to be healthy. For me I’ve always seen food as either an angelic choice or a devilish choice. Over time I’ve learned to cook food that is a combination of the two to result in a fun balanced way of eating. As a new Mom, I want my daughter to be exposed to a wide range of different foods and to grow up loving her perfect healthy body. I also love making demo cooking videos because its fun and expresses my inner performer. Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my blog and please enjoy!
