About Me


Hi there! I’m Maria, a 31-year-old Admissions & Marketing Officer, MA English Linguistics graduate, and baking enthusiast from Milton Keynes in the UK. I inherited my love of cooking from my kitchen-whizz mum and got majorly into baking back in late 2012. I set up this blog as a way of sharing my culinary activities as I love to experiment with flavours and create my own recipes, and I also love to write.

I wouldn’t say I have a particular food hero or one favourite cookbook but I’m a big fan of Nigella Lawson, Tom Kerridge, the Hairy Bikers, Frances Quinn, Ainsley Harriott, Good Food magazine and the Hummingbird Bakery’s recipes. My mum is also a huge influence as she’s taught me so much and I continue to learn a lot from her!

I hate faff and think baking should be fun, so I always try to use simple ingredients and techniques (you won’t find any sculpted sugarpaste masterpieces here 😉 ) I also tend to play things by ear a lot so apologies in advance if I’m a bit sloppy with measurements!

Thanks for looking at my blog and happy baking 🙂
