I have started to cook when I was 8 years of age...

Pancakes were my favorite dish at that time. Now I have many recipes of those but at that time I was so proud of my self that I made the best ones in the family. My grandma and my mom were great cooks as well.

When I was kid I was allergic to many food ingredients so I had to be very selective and come up with my own recipes always and also look for a ways to make interesting combination of simple food ingredients. My salads and soups were very much liked by my friends.

I travelled around the globe a lot and from everywhere collected some cooking tips and recipes. Simplicity and taste was attractive for me always.

My love for cooking combined with passion for being fit and active I would like to share with you, my dear friends.
