Hello! I am Adina.

Where Is My Spoon is a blog where you will find delicious and family friendly recipes, all made from scratch. From simple healthy soups to sumptuous cakes for special occasion, all our recipes have been tried and loved by our family and our friends. You will find lots of Romanian and German recipes, but not only.

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!

Hi Adina! I just finished reading your About Me page … I think you must be my twin sister! 🙂

I’m was born in Canada but my parents are from Italy. For the last 10 years, I have been living in Germany with my husband and three children. When I first moved here, I didn’t speak much German, but then my husband got me a year’s subscription to Für jeden Tag, and my German improved immensely.

I also have hundreds of cookbooks (my husband says that I have too many) and thousands of recipes saved all over the place. hehe

If you’d like, email me at rosasdolcevita@gmail.com. I would be nice to hear from you. 🙂

Ich wünsche Dir einen schönen Sonntag!!

Liebe Grüße aus Niedersachsen,

Rosa

Hi Adina! My name is Karin, I am a German living in England. I have no kids, no food blog, no husband, but I am a food enthusiast and loveeee to cook, although I used to stick with the more “exotic” things like Brazilian, Ghanaian, Korean…. Recently, I came upon a book about Russian cuisine in a bookstore, and I got that and another one about Polish cooking. And then one on the cooking of the Central Asian regions of Russia. They set me off, what with winter being at our doorstep and their stuff is perfect for that season, and I started looking around on the internet for cookbooks from the rest of Eastern Europe. Pinterest led me to your site, and I am soooo glad I found it! Your Romanian food is delicious, I have already cooked a huge batch of your White Bean Soup, it is amazing, and many other dishes will follow (once my freezer real estate allows…). Please keep up this great job you’re doing, and post many many more Romanian recipes, I have so far collected about 40 from here!

Ich hoffe du hast einen wundervollen Urlaub mit deiner Familie in Frankreich. Viele Grüße an euch alle!

Hi Karin. So nice to read your comment and I am happy you like my recipes, I hope they all work for you. Let me know what you do try and feel free to criticize what won’t work. They are all long-tried recipes, I just hope that I am able to explain them well, so that they work for everyone.
We are on holiday in Poland now and we are having such great food in hotel and the restaurants around here, that I am already thinking about all the Polish recipes I could cook and post on the blog.😉 More Eastern Europe recipes, some quite similar to Romanian recipes and sooooo delicious.
Take care and I hope to hear from you soon.
