About Me

I was born in Portugal and moved to the North East of England in 2010.

My earliest memories of cooking go back to when I was 10 years old and try to bake for the first time. I used to bake these lovely chocolaty treats and take them to every party, passing on the recipe to any keen bakers.

My main influence is Portuguese cuisine. I was greatly influence by my mother and her fabulous hand-written cookbook. However since I met my husband I started learning a lot more about British cuisine and he has kindly introduce me to a new culinary world. The result of this synergy is what you can find in this blog.

I’ve always been passionate about cooking and baking. I also enjoy developing recipes with seasonal ingredients or whatever is available in my fridge or pantry. More recently, due to my job I enjoy cooking and baking recipes that are both healthy and affordable.
