I'm Csilla, a 23 year old girl from Hungary.
After 2 years of starting this blog, it just felt appropriate to update this page. :)
How not to make it sound like a cliche, I wonder, but the truth is I really always have loved to be in or around the kitchen. This is my favorite place to be in my or any other home...
I basically go into a kitchen, a completely unfamiliar kitchen and I know right away where to find anything.
I think this kinda bizarre love for kitchens come from my other love; cooking. Or rather say baking. It makes me happy. I'm an experimenting cook. I always have a new recipe I just cannot wait to try out. I always have some favorite dishes I feel like I could eat forever but usually it wears off quickly.
I'm all for simple foods. I like a recipe that is not a hundred pages long. I like one that is simple, straight-forward and allows to use my creativity. Although, from time to time I get this fever-like urge to make something that definitely doesn't fall into the simple and easy category. Like croissants. Or macarons. I take them as challenges and I'm that crazy person who stays up all night just to fold the though in every 2 hours. :)
I don't go to culinary school. I've never had any education in cooking or baking, what I know now are from my mom, grandmas and lots of trial and errors. :) I cook out of passion and love. Most of the time I don't follow the recipes, except for the baking part, and that's how I can always discover new tastes and flavours. I'm such a foodie, I love to try all kinds of cuisines. I love to integrate flavours from different cuisines to my own recipes.
Although, since I'm Hungarian I share some of my favorite Hungarian recipes, as well. I mean, DUH :)
I've graduated college in 2012 and now I'm an "international relations expert". I work in a language school right now and hoping to pursue my masters degree in this fall majoring in media and communications. Because I just realized that politics are not for me, I'm too idealistic and in my own little fantasy land to really get into the 2-faced world of politics.
I like the creative side of life and hoping I can get ahead with my eccentric ideas. One day... :)
I love traveling, reading, wine, all things related to makeup, chocolate chip cookies are my guilty pleasure, running and working out, taking pictures, talking about philosophical things, being bizarrely silly and watching TV shows. And so much more! But these are the main stuffs.
Hmm, that is about me in a nutshell. Thank you for wandering to my blog and reading! :)
