About Me  
Every cooking blog seems to have an about page, so I figured I couldn't delay introducing myself much longer!

My name is Lucila, but I would rather you called me by my nickname, Luli, since that's what I hear people calling me more often and therefore I identify myself with it much more. And you probably didn't need such a long explanation about my name! I do that a lot, I just go on and on about things. Mom often tells me I can't just go straight to the point, in an attempt to clarify I just confuse people further. That's one of my special talents for you, not a very gracious one at that.

Another one of my talents (I'm not even sure I should call it that) is baking. I've been doing it for as long as I remember, I pushed my grandmother to teach me some recipes when I was young and I guess that's where it started. I baked a lot of butter cookies and vanilla cakes as a child, then brownies, loaves. I slowly introduced more and more recipes in there and only just recently I attempted to make proper savoury meals from scratch.

I'm pretty lost in life, I'm a Web Designer and an English Teacher, but in reality, I have no idea what I'm doing. Except when I bake! At the beginning of this year I figured I would try to do something while I figure myself out and that's when I started my little business offering baked goods. And then I started baking lots more than usual and found myself looking at cooking blogs and recipe books, doing something I love. I'm not sure what this is, but I'll do it for as long as it makes me happy and I'll let it take me wherever it has to, even if this might not be what I want my career to be. One thing is for sure though, I'll forever be a bakeddict.
