About Me

Thanks for visiting my page! My name is Sandra. I live in Fairfield, California (somewhere between San Francisco and Sacramento). I’ve been married to my awesome husband for 8 years and I’m a dog mom of 2 beautiful rescue girls Carrie and Pom Pom.

I am from Lima-Peru but moved here because of my husband (I know… love can make you go crazy! ). I went to school in Lima and got a bachelors degree in Business Administration. I enjoy my time in the kitchen that’s why I like to develop recipes. You can find me baking or cooking almost everyday.  Also, I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy hiking and wine tasting.

How did I start baking? Well, being newly married and with no cooking experience, I decided to go online and search for recipes so I found out I enjoyed my time in the kitchen specially when baking. A couple of years ago I decided to start my blog, creating recipes, using ingredients from all over the world while I tell you my little tales of my everyday life.

Things you should know about me :

1.- I love dessert, pizza and wine.

2.- I like hiking. I go to Lagoon Valley Park and hike about 5 miles 3-4 times per week.

3.- I am obsessed with my Fitbit.

4.- I’m a dog lover. My dogs are my children.

5.- I miss my family and friends a lot. My mother and father are very close to my heart. My mother has been diagnosed with an early stage of Alzheimer’s and that makes me feel homesick sometimes, but I try to visit every 6 months so I can spend time with her. I’m sure you will find posts about it too.

6.- Hubby and I have a weekly night called “munchies night” …. cheese, crackers, fruit, wine, chocolate…

And … that’s all for now!
