About me

My name’s Thea and I’m a 17 19 year old baking addict, architecture student and art lover from Sweden. Born and raised in Stockholm but currently living in Lund.
I’ve grown up with a mother who’s a nutritional therapist and  I’ve learned to appreciate healthy and unrefined foods. I like to keep my recipes simple and on the more nutritious side using whole and ancient grains, traditional techniques and natural sweeteners. Of course I’ll make something extra indulgent now and then!
For your interest, some of my favorite flavors and ingredients are caramel, chocolate, berries, dates, rhubarb, buckwheat, millet, einkorn, vanilla, cardamom, cinnamon, pecans, sea salt and butter. You can expect to see a lot of those ingredients in my recipes.


What camera do you use?
Since November 2014 I use a Canon 70D with a 50mm f/1.4 lens. Prior to that I used a Panasonic Lumix GX1 (a micro 4/3 camera).


Can I use your photographs on my site/blog?

Yes! Just make sure to link back to my blog and only use one photo. If you use one of my recipes please rewrite it in your own words and link back to my blog. Please don’t repost an image along with the recipe or repost several images without my permission.


Can you convert your recipes from weight to volume?
Unfortunately not. It’s really hard for me to convert recipes created in grams to cups. It would be a lot of 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp in the ingredients list. If I make a recipe using grams or oz I do it because I think it’s necessary. I’d recommend that you buy a scale with both grams and oz and I promise you won’t regret it! It’ll be so much easier to bake and you’ll have less dishes after baking.
