Hi there and welcome to my blog! I’m Alina, the recipe developer behind this blog.
I’ve always enjoyed cooking and baking and I love playing with ingredients to bring new flavors to my dishes. When I was a child, it was my job bake around holidays; my mom didn’t particularly enjoy this activity, as opposed to her daughter, me ?, who had incredible patience for making the perfect cookies. Later, when I grew up, I realized that baking was not enough to feed myself, so I dedicated some of that patience and energy to cooking. And just to be clear, the kitchen is, I guess, the only area where I’m being patient ?
This blog is not only about my passion for cooking and baking, it’s also about eating healthy food. I prefer making everything from scratch using carefully selected ingredients than buying products with preservatives, additives and other harmful chemicals.
A few years ago, I became vegetarian, so I’ll share here many delicious vegetarian and vegan recipes, easy to make at home.
Besides cooking, I’m also passionate about travelling. Over the years I travelled a lot in South-East Asia, and I have even lived for three years in China (Shanghai). That was not only a life changing experience for me, it was also an awesome culinary experience. I enjoyed the mix of flavors and spices and I brought new tastes back home, to my kitchen. So, you’ll see here many recipes inspired from different Asian cuisines.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you’ll like my recipes and, if you try them, I’d love to hear your feedback.
