my name is Melina, I’m a passionate cake baker/eater/recipe creator and food photographer born and raised in south-west Germany. The first-ever word out of my mouth was “Kuchen” (German for cake) on my first birthday and I think my fate was decided right there. It was a sign.
I just recently moved to Texas with my husband and I am still discovering the American way of baking. Pretzels with Chocolate? Marshmallows and S’mores? Bring it on! I love to come up with new creations, experimenting in the kitchen and mixing new recipes with old family recipes. Also, I’m a true believer in “a messy kitchen is a happy kitchen”. It’s just not as fun without the mess.
I started this blog in 2012 mainly for two reasons: to have a creative outlet for my baking-obsessed, photography-enthused, always-need-to-make-something-and-be-creative self, and to share some of my recipes with friends and family. After my first post, I was surprised about the response I got and the amount of clicks from people all over the world! I was amazed about how many people are actually interested in what I’m doing here. So I keep on going and hope you join me on my kitchen adventures!
