Fell in love with cooking

I liked cooking, but I got fascinated by this art in Spain. Being alone, I was cooking only for myself, so I was allowed to make mistakes; no one would have minded it. I started step by step with my mom’s recipes, and after a while, I created mine.


Mint and chia cheesecake


I am more into baking. I use the oven a lot: as a healthier method of preparing the food. My favourite dish is the turkey tenderloin. I love it! I made it for Easter, and it was a delight.

I usually search for recipes online, but I am always adding or cutting some ingredients. Sometimes it works well, but not all the time. But this is how I learn and improve day by day. I started replacing the white flour with the integral one. I am making cakes with oat or rice flour. Instead of using white sugar, I add brown sugar, or dates, bananas, raisins (for natural sweetness). Because of this change, I am no longer into eating store-bought sweets.



Sugar-free carrot cake with cream cheese frosting


Another dish that I love is making pizza. Last time I made a broccoli and walnuts pizza which was delicious. I never thought about this combination, but I only had broccoli in the house. So, broccoli pizza! Yummy!


Also, banana bread is one of my favourites. Bananas represent an essential ingredient in my recipes. Initially, I was using them only in banana bread, but afterwards, I started adding them in carrot cakes, ice cream, biscuits, even in brownies.

My latest discovery is the layer cake. I love the texture and aspect. I like chocolate cream more, but last time I made a pumpkin cake with cream cheese, pumpkin jelly and chocolate. All those flavours were harmoniously combined. I loved it, and luckily, I can still enjoy one more piece!

Even if you don't like cooking, it's important to keep an eye on your food intake.

Stay healthy!
