I'm Tania, the Happy Hungry Hijabi. Welcome to my kitchen, a place of love and loads of food. I'm a mother of 2 amazing boys, self taught baker, blogger and lover of baked goods. I'm also a huge fan of desserts! Coming from a family that loves their food, I've been in the kitchen since I was very young and have encouraged my little ones to do the same. My husband and my boys are my number one tasters and critics.
Baking has always been a place of Zen for me. It's a place where I can just relax and forget my fears and concerns.
When I'm not in the kitchen, my life revolves around my boys, and I'm so blessed to have them in my life. We enjoy spending time in our garden, painting and hanging out with friends.
My background is in accounting but I have been running a company dealing in customised cakes and cupcakes since 2012. I've been blessed with the ability to create happiness with my food. In the beginning of 2020, I was facing a difficult decision. Coronavirus had struck and I was concerned about my children first and foremost, so I decided to step back and close up shop until things got better. However, I couldn't stop working, so a different approach was necessary. I had always wanted to start a blog and thought what better time than now!
Being a self taught baker, I wanted to be able to teach people how to cook, literally from scratch. I have made all these recipes simple with step-by-step tutorials, pictures, tips and tricks, and videos to make sure you get the best and easiest to follow recipes out there. Hopefully in time, you will gain confidence in the kitchen, and send out some awesome dishes. What more could you ask for?
All these recipes are tried, tested and tasted multiple times to make sure that only the best ones reach you. If only you could see the dozens of cakes and the crazy batches of cookies on my shelves before each recipe was uploaded. I have made a lot of friends, family members and neighbours very happy with all that food!
So everyone sit back and relax, grab a cup of tea and some cookies. Get ready for a food filled adventure. Thank you for being a part of this great journey.
