My name is HIlda. I am a registered nurse and a lover of baking, cooking and DIY gifts.
My interest in baking and cooking comes from sitting on a high stool watching my mother bake and cook as a young girl. Somewhere in my high school and university years I discovered that baking cupcakes and cookies were a sure way to bring joy into someones cloudy day. Potluck was a way of bringing together friends and family to catch up, have a laugh and be apart of each others lives.
It was not until I started nursing full time that I realized that baking or cooking was a great outlet from the stresses of the day and take me to another world. Also everyone loved receiving and trialing the recipes that I’d try and also modify to reduce sugars and fats to try and make less rich and easier for the pallet to take.
It is also my desire to use ingredients that are affordable and can be found at your local supermarket or markets. So there is not excuse not to give it a go.
I want to use this blog to keep track of and share the recipes and adventures that come with them. I would also like to invite you to come along for the journey, have fun, try the recipes, laugh and cry with me.
