Hi! I’m Daniela, the blogger behind My Gorgeous Recipes, welcome to my virtual kitchen! My love for cooking and baking started years ago when I was a little girl, and I used to help mum in the kitchen. I grew up in Romania, where traditional homemade food is the norm, and no holiday is the same without a proper feast with tons of starters, mains and desserts.
I studied at the University of Pitesti in Romania and University of Porto in Portugal, where I fell in love with the local dishes, especially seafood and pasteis the nata.
I moved to the UK some 11 years ago, where I was introduced to all sorts of international dishes - Chinese and Indian are still my favourite cuisines. Now, a new adventure: the beautiful Isle of Man 🇮🇲, where I moved in August this year with my gorgeous little family. I cannot wait to discover new dishes that I can share with you, my lovely readers.
I absolutely love cooking and baking. I love good food that is healthy (and not so healthy), delicious and nutritious. On this blog you can find quick and easy recipes with simple ingredients, recipes that anyone can cook. You don't need to be a Master Chef in order to enjoy delicious homemade food. Cooking can be a lot simpler than you think.
Most of my recipes can be cooked in 30 minutes or less, and most of them are seasonal recipes that everybody loves. Christmas, New Year, Easter, Thanksgiving, and so on - I've got you covered, there is something for everybody here.
If there is passion, anything can be achieved. Tasty food does not have to be complicated, and sometimes, less is more. The very simple ingredients can make the most amazing recipes, you just have to believe in yourself.
I hope you enjoy my gorgeous recipes! 🙂
