A Little Bit About Me


Hey guys!!!! I think its about time that I did a post about me. I’ve been putting this off for awhile, but now that I’m officially back to blogging and absolutely LOVING it I think its time.  So first of all I would like to finally introduce myself.

My name is Leanna! I’m 22 years old and married to the man of my dreams for over 4 years already and have the perfect baby boy that is almost 7 months. I come from a Russian background. My parents moved to Canada (where we live) from Russia shortly before I was born. We spoke Russian at home so when I went to school I barely knew anything and pretty much had to learn it in school. Growing up we had no TV in our home so when I would go over to my uncles house to babysit I would always watch Food Network I just wasn’t into the cartoons or the kids shows I wanted to always watch cooking shows. In fact growing up it was my dream to have my own cooking show. When I would cook at home I would “talk” and cook like on TV or do a cooking show for my siblings haha I know sounds kinda funny but i loved it!! I would get ideas from the cooking shows and recipes from there and also would go to the library and copy recipes from recipe books and this is when I was 12! Yes I started cooking at the age of 12 :) So I have been passionate about cooking and food for a very long time.

Posting pictures of my food on social media I had friends tell me that i should start a food blog, First I was hesitant thinking what if no one uses my recipes or goes on my blog but you cant let your fears hold you back. Sometimes I would get unmotivated when I would not get a response or feedback on my recipes, but then I started to ignore all those thoughts and just did what I love and slowly I’m getting more and more readers. I get so excited when you guys comment or “like” my pictures :) In the near future I really want to start making YouTube videos for you guys as well! I think it would be so much fun, plus I always dreamed of having my own show ;)
