Hello everyone! My name is Anastasia and I’m a Russian living in Holland. I grew up in the Far East of Russia (it is really far far far east… on a sunny day you can actually see China on the other side of the river!). I lived there till my early twenties and then I moved to Moscow, where I lived and worked as a trade-marketing manager for about 5 years. I was pretty happy in Moscow and did not plan to move anywhere else, because I loved my job, had a successful career and to be honest Moscow is a great city to live in! So… How is it possible that I live in Holland now? To make a long story short, it is all about love… I met a wonderful Dutch guy, fell in love and after some considerations left everything in Russia and moved to Holland. A little bit adventurous, right? But to make it even more adventurous I decided to switch my career from trade-marketing to blogging about baking. Because I always liked baking and really enjoy it when I have some free time. But when you work 60-80 hours a week, it is difficult to find time for baking and blogging, because basically you can do it only during weekends. But now (thanks to my amazing husband! Without him this blog wouldn’t exist!) I have time to do what I love and share my passion with you.
So welcome to Baking with Anastasia, a blog devoted to the pleasure of baking! This blog focuses on all sorts of baking:
- fun and easy: see category Easy Peasy recipes.
- more difficult recipes that may require additional baking equipment & a little bit more time: see category Level Up recipes.
- difficult recipes for experienced bakers with a WOW effect: Pâtisserie level recipes.
Hope you will enjoy your stay here and will find recipes that will make their way into your kitchen!
