I'm Elien Lewis , the face behind this blog. I am a self-taught baker, author, and foodie. You will find me spending most of my days either recipe testing in the kitchen, photographing food in my living room, or out in the garden.
Where it started
Making delicious food from scratch is a passion of mine and something I've always loved doing even when young. I'm originally from Belgium, so a love of chocolate, Belgian waffles and bread is in my blood!
My mom always encouraged my baking when I was young. She never minded that I turned the kitchen upside down to practice making croissants (at age 10), or whip a batch of muffins. It was this encouragement that let me practice, tweak and hone in my skills.
I started this food blog to document my favorite recipes, look back on them, and share them with others.
Since starting the blog I have been able to work on my photography too, which I absolutely love! It's a joy being able to work on my passion every day!
Today, I’m a proud mom to two wonderful boys. My taste testers are always ready with eager forks and honest opinions. They inspire new, delicious, and dependable recipes for everyone to enjoy.
