Hello there! Welcome to the land of healthy desserts!
I am Christina (Issy) - a Doctor of Computer Sciences and a passionate hobby baker!
I started baking actively when I first moved to France for my Ph.D. I got quickly fascinated by the incredible French patisserie creations appearing on the magnificent vitrines of numerous boulangeries. With time, I gathered the courage to prepare some of them at home, starting with the jewel of every boulangerie - the French macaron. As I wanted to enjoy these incredible desserts more often while maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle, my focus soon turned in the direction of re-creating them in healthy delicious treats.
Ever since then, preparing healthy versions of well-known sweet treats as well as creating completely new wholesome recipes has been my passion and a huge part of my life. I use mostly simple, plant-based ingredients and the majority of my recipes are quite easy to put together. This blog contains original recipes for desserts, baked goods, and vegetarian meals which I prepare quite often for my loved ones - family and friends. I am eager to share my cooking experiments with you in the hope of inspiring some of you to adopt a more natural and healthy lifestyle!
I hope you give my recipes and try! If you do, let me know, I would appreciate the feedback. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
