About

It is quite hard for me to thing of things to tell you about myself. I’m just a young, bubbly woman working as a translator and as a waitress and I love to be busy and make/create things.

Thinking back to my younger years, I can’t remember having a signature dish or something; even though I love to cook and to bake. Of course I helped my mum in the kitchen when she was going to make sausage rolls, a cake or a delicious apple pie or when she was going to prepare our lovely Christmas dinner but I never really made anything special that was my own. It wasn’t until I moved out of my parents’ house that I really started to cook (although they were fairly easy dishes).

Now, I would like to inspire people to cook and to bake so they (or their children) do have a signature dish.

I’m constantly looking for new ingredients, dishes to try and I do this on a regular basis. No matter how difficult a recipe is, I love to take on a challenge and (try to) cook the dish (even though I fail a lot of times)!

When I’m not cooking, you can probably find me somewhere with a book, snuggly on the couch with my knitting(s) or behind my sewing machine. Even though I don’t have much experience with making things myself, I enjoy learning new things. Of course, I am extremely happy and proud when I have finished something I made all by myself!

I hope you like my website and that you are now inspired to make something yourself as well. Whether it is a home-made dish, a cake or a pie or a nice dress or skirt. Don’t be afraid to share your creations with me. You can send a picture or the link to your website to:
