Who and where?
My name is Linda Lomelino. I live in a small town on the lovely Swedish west coast.
Why and what?
For as long as I can remember, I've loved eating pastries. My mom used to bake all the time when I was a kid, but I never wanted to join in, I just wanted to eat cake. When and how I came to love baking is a mystery and honestly, I still don't have a good answer when people ask me why I started this blog. I started baking back in 2009 and I still love it (and photography) just as much, if not more today. This blog is my creative outlet and I'm equally excited every time I post new recipes and photos. I hope you'll like spending some time here.
In April 2012, my first book, Lomelinos tårtor (Lomelino's cakes) was released. In May 2013 my second book, Lomelinos glass (Lomelino's ice cream) was released. My third book, Sweet food & photography, was released in September 2014. My first book is translated into German, French, English (US), Dutch and Finnish which is pretty mind-blowing! Read more about my books in the "My books" section.
Random facts about me:
-English is not my native language so please excuse my spelling. I do my best.
-My father is Portuguese and my mother is German (but she was born in Sweden).
-I want to be a morning person, but I'm not, therefore I am a firm believer of coffee.
-I love sleeping. I'd say I'm an expert.
-I rarely have cravings, but if I ever do it's for orange juice.
-I love old cameras.. and old desks, old cutlery.. you name it. As long as it's beautiful.
-Oh, and by the way, I also play in a band.
