Hello! I am Adina. I was born in Romania but I have been living in Germany for the past 13 years with my husband and more recently two wonderful little children. Well, not so little anymore, Bruno is 8 years old and Perla is 5.
Needless to say I love cooking with a passion. And baking too. I could spend my whole day in the kitchen and not be bored of it.
When I came to Germany I wasn’t even able to boil an egg properly, so we mostly lived on bread and cheese and what my mother-in-law occasionally cooked for us. But soon I found an old cookbook that my mother-in-law forgot in the house as she moved out and started trying to decipher it. I say trying because at the time my German knowledge reduced itself to ‘Hallo, mein Name ist Adina’ and ‘Wie geht es dir?’ As I started a German language course a few months later I still couldn’t really have a conversation in German, but my kitchen vocabulary was totally impressive.
That is how I started cooking. Since then I collected hundreds of cookbooks and thousands of recipes. I always say, I’d probably need to live 10 lives to be able to cook every recipe I have in the house. 🙂 I wish I would!
