aboutflycakes-photoI love to cook. A lot. I also spend a great deal of time thinking about food, talking about food and opining about food. I also have severe voyeuristic food tendencies mixed with a touch of recipe hoarding. This blog is my attempt to share recipes I make all the time, the ones I will make tonight, those my family loves the most, the ones I will attempt some day, the ones that caught my eye for some reason, and some that are just well…pretty to look at. The common denominator among all the recipes that catch my eye is simplicity. Life is too busy to overcomplicate our approach to food and eating. Also, this blog is a love letter to my family and friends who understand that my baking and cooking is a profound expression of love. It was the language spoken to me by my Argentine Abuela and it is still the language spoken by my mother.

“No one who cooks, cooks alone. Even at her most solitary, a cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cooks past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of cookbook writers.”
