My name is Brooke, and I’m a 33 year-old behavioral scientist living in the beautiful German state of Rheinland-Pfalz . A love for travel and adventure has taken me to some amazing destinations all over the globe – from the rainy streets of my hometown in Seattle to the sun-kissed islands of Greece, from the souks of Muscat, Istanbul and Marrakesh to the Andean highlands of Peru, from the rolling green hills of Ireland and Scotland to the bustling market squares of Italy – and hundreds of places in between. Through these incredible journeys I have fallen in love with the magical and inspiring ways that people all over the world turn fresh, local ingredients into the most innovative and delicious of dishes. It is with much joy that I bring some of these dishes to you.
I have no official culinary training, just a passion for food and entertaining. My greatest source of guidance is the original Baking Goddess, my beloved grandmother Bonnie Jean. She taught me at a very young age that food can awaken both the appetite and the soul. Although she passed away in 2012 at 95 years of age, her enthusiasm lives on in many parts of my life, including my cooking and baking.
In spite of its name, this blog features recipes of all kinds. Some involve baking; some don’t. Some are simple and straightforward, while others are more complicated or require special tools. All of them have been adapted in one way or another to suit my individual tastes, and I would encourage you to do the same if you fancy giving them a try…
All of the photographs are my own, and I strive as much as possible to represent in each image the composition of the recipe printed and the true nature of its ingredients. Please seek permission before copying or sharing any images on this site.
