Hello all! My name is Laura, and I am delighted to make your acquaintance through this blog and more importantly, through food. My dream is to one day open my own bakery, but in the meantime I will cook and bake for you all and hope to pass along some of my family’s favourite recipes as well as some new ones.
I have been blessed to grow up in a family that loves food, and all of my favourite childhood memories relate to food. I can remember going to visit my grandparents on both sides when I was little and looking forward to the desserts that they would make. My Nana used to have to hide the cookie tins so that my brothers and I would not eat everything in the house on our first day there.
I learned to cook and bake by watching my Mom in the kitchen. The common theme in my family is that we love to feed people. Nothing makes me happier than a trip home, where from the second I walk in the door to the second I leave, someone is trying to make me eat something delicious.
I have not always been the healthiest eater, but I have recently been trying to make healthier, vegetarian and sometimes vegan meals so that I can feel good about myself and the food that I am eating. That being said, I am a big believer in enjoying food and everything in moderation so I really go for it with the desserts. Sometimes you just have to indulge. You will find a mixture of healthy vegetarian and vegan meals as well as indulgent desserts on my blog because food should make you feel good, but it should also be enjoyed.
