Hi! My name is Eva, and welcome to my blog. Here are some fun things about me:
I play the flute. I started playing in 4th grade and kept playing throughout college. In fact, I minored in flute performance. My college flute professor was a student of Sir James Galway, so I am honored to be a direct "descendant" of Sir James' flute family tree. I used to dream about playing in the pit orchestra for a Broadway musical. Then reality hit.
I figure skate. I first skated around 3rd or 4th grade when I attended a friend's birthday party. I took group classes at my local rink and took a hiatus during high school and college and came back to the sport as an adult student after I graduated college. You can find me at the rink at least 3 times a week. I've passed my Adult Gold Moves in the Field and Adult Silver Freestyle tests. I'm working on my Adult Gold Freestyle elements and hope to pass the test in the fall of 2013 or winter 2014.
I bake. My love for baking started when I was a little girl. I wanted an Easy Bake Oven, but I never received one. I guess I am making up for it now! I originally started this blog to document recipes to pass along to my daughter and now use it to motivate me to try out new recipes.
I have to give a lot of props to my husband, who has the patience and willingness to watch our beautiful daughter while I test out new recipes. This blog wouldn't be possible without his help.
My goal isn't to become a professional chef/baker or photographer. My only hope is that you enjoy some of my cherished recipes and find some inspiration in your kitchen.
Feel free to leave me a comment below or within one of my posts. I look forward to hearing from you!
