My name is Milli and I am happy to see you visiting my blog. You'll find recipes, stories and mainly, experiences here. As far back as I remember myself and my family, everything always revolved around food. I grew up in a home brimming with good food and with a mother who loves to cook. She inherited her recipes from her own mother.
I remember that when I was young, I would wake up very early in the morning to the wonderful aroma of moussaka or a good cake.
And I was always in the kitchen, with my mother. I didn't take part but I loved to eat the delicacies she made.
Food always makes me happy…making up recipes, trying them, and mainly, watching my family and friends enjoying the food I've prepared. Nothing brings me more joy than that.
I was a graphic designer and web designer for a long times (13 years). I would buy images for work, mainly from Shutterstock, and I was always amazed at the quality of the photos. I wanted to know how the food came out so tantalizing in the photos, and what tricks they used for food that comes out shiny.
Then one day, without warning, I bought a camera and started taking pictures, without learning, and without preparation or explanations.
Since food was the most available thing at home, after all I did "grow up" inside pots, I started to practice on food photography, and with the photos came a talent for food styling.
Today, I mostly take photos, develop recipes, and do a little designing…still…it is in my blood…
English is not my mother tongue, so please, forgive my spelling, I do my best.
