I’m Elien Lewis, the one behind this blog. A self-taught baker, author, and food lover, most of my days involve experimenting with recipes, taking food photographs, or spending time in the garden.
Creating tasty food from scratch has always been a passion of mine, a habit rooted in my Belgian origins (where love for chocolate, mussels, waffles, and bread are a given!)
I love to create recipes, especially sourdough recipes or those using fresh seasonal produce. I started this blog back in 2016 to keep track of and share my favorite recipes and gardening journey. Since then, I have moved away from the gardening side of things but I have continued with the food element.
This journey has also improved my photography skills, another aspect I enjoy. It's great working on my passion daily.
