Hi there! Welcome to my little blog. I am Alicia and I’m 21 even though I look like I’m 10 I swear I’m not. I love to cook, bake and eat yummy food.I also love to read, write poetry and drink big cups of orange pekoe tea.
Almost a year ago I married my best friend and started this new adventure of marriage which included feeding the both of us. I decided to create this blog to keep track of the recipes we love and of the memories we have made while cooking them.
You may be wondering: “What is the inspiration for the name of your blog?” Well let me tell you. My husband proposed to me in a grove of trees with a pot of tea at the ready and a book called When I Ask. The photo above and the header for this blog is a photo of the actual set up my husband prepared for me. It was absolutely perfect and truly showed how well my husband knows me. That photo reminds me of a fairy tale and when I am with my husband I feel like I am in a fairy tale even when dinner isn’t served until 8:30 and the dishes pile up.
After a year of hard work my hubby and I are heading back to school to finish up our degrees. I will be studying Creative Writing and you can read more of my writing on my other website Ink Blotz and Tea Cups (please see link below).
On this blog I will be featuring recipes that I have tried and also recipes that are inspired by my reading as well as the book reviews to go along with them. From time to time I will also post some more personal things. I hope to combine some of my greatest loves: feeding the mind and soul with stories and filling my belly as well as my hubby’s.
Both my husband and I have a love for sweets. We got married almost a year ago and cooking for a table for two is a great joy! I tend to cook by feel, touch and smell. I follow a recipe the first time and after that I cook with dollops, pinches and squirts of this and that. I hope you find something here that makes your stomach growl and your mouth water. If you ever have a question about a recipe or anything else, feel free to comment and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
If you like what you see on my blog you may like to follow me on these websites as well.
