Hello! My name is Ana, I’m an anonymous architect (AA) by day and I read about superheroes at night. I’m old enough, but people still think I’m too young to make such great desserts. 😀

Shedonist is unofficial word for female hedonist, in whose philosophical direction I’m gladly taking part. My understanding of enjoyment includes food, travel, dance, music, books, movies ect., which I partially try to practice almost every day. If you like baking visually effective desserts, collecting colorful muffin paper cups, watching Romanian movies, listening to a band that has only thousand views on Youtube or reading 600 pages in 3 days- than you are at the right place.

Hedonism /’hi:dənɪzəm/ noun- the belief that pleasure is the most important thing in life. The name derives from the Greek word for “delight” (hēdonismos from hēdonē “pleasure”, cognate with English sweet + suffix -ismos “ism”).

The whole story began a few years ago by purchasing my first muffin pan, which made my mother released from the position of family pastry chef. I soon spoiled close family and friends with cakes and pastries. I started writing a blog ‘In the Kitchen’ so I can easily share my recipes. Blog that has, after a few years, given its best in the inner circle of fans (the same family and friends) or I just got tired of ‘you are ready to get married’ comment. As reminiscent of the whole story I left ‘In the Kitchen’ category on this page.

I’m still absolute amateur. I love baking most, but to prevent everybody getting diabetes I try to cook healthy dishes once in a while. I don’t like vague recipes (especially for cakes) that have flooded the Internet. That’s why I try to write recipes as precisely as possible, and, of course, just the ones I cooked by myself and were successful. I believe that everyone can bake great cakes and cook like their mothers, you just have to have a scoop of good will and a pinch of salt.

Good thing about baking is that you can do all the licking, bad thing is you still have to do all the washing.
