Hi! I'm Madelaine
Welcome to my Kitchen! Glad you’re here.
I think the reason why you are here is the same reason why I started this blog: the joy of creating. The beauty of making something delicious, healthy, and nourishing by just mixing some ingredients together that at first sight seem to have nothing to do with each other.
We create things with our own hands… and hearts. This is the secret of cooking and baking, too. We need to add a little pinch of our heart and soul to whatever we are about to prepare in our kitchens. And the result? Something amazing! This blog was born (with a little encouragement from my friends and a lot from my husband!) to share this magic with you.
Here I will share my baking stories and recipes (I love love love baking!), and also some cooking, and occasionally other bits, such as DIY, simple living, travelling, which are some of my favourite things to do. For me, baking is like a mini-retreat. It lets my creativity flow and it makes my heart full when I see some smiling faces enjoying what I just created.
I am a Hungarian born in Transylvania, Romania, and yes, with a French name! I have a BA (Hons) degree in English language and literature and I am currently living in the UK with my husband. We are blessed to live in a part of the country where city, coast, and country blend just perfectly. We get to spend quality time in nature and discover new places, too.
When I'm not working or cooking and baking, you will find me on my yoga mat! I'm all about simplifying and embracing a more mindful and intentional living, but there’s a lot more for me to learn! They say that being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect but accepting that nothing is.
If you like what you find here (lots of recipes influenced by Central and Eastern European countries!), then please share it with your family, friends, and foes... really, anyone who could benefit from it!
With love, from my kitchen to yours.
