Hi there, my food lover friends!
I’m Lorena, and I’m glad that “someway, somehow” you ended up stopping here at CookingNosis! I’m a full time project engineer, much loved wife and dog’s mom that found in cooking good food an outcome for a stressful routine. I hope you can join me in this journey and enjoy cooking and, most especially, eating the delicious food that you will prepare yourself!
I’ve always wanted to build something of my own to make the world a better and more enjoyable place to live. I love the therapeutic power of reuniting people over a good meal. So I decided to give this blogging thing a try and combine this will with my passion for cooking.
As I’ve said I have a degree in electrical engineering… No, I’m not a professional chef or cook. However, since I’ve moved out of my parents house in 2010, I had to learn how to prepare my own meals and realized that when you make your food from scratch the results are much more tasteful! When I moved from Brazil to USA I became even more interested in different cuisines, kitchen tools, techniques and read a lot about it. That’s where the majority of my knowledge comes from.
My engineering background also increases my curiosity of understanding a little bit of the science behind the recipes and I will give you some tips on that too. Buying frozen, pre-packaged or ready-in-five-minutes food has been out of my daily routine for a long time! The fresher the ingredients, the better the results you will have!
Following a recipe is not as hard as some people may think and I truly believe that anyone can cook. I will do my best to make the recipes and tips I publish even easier to follow… Because I got to tell you: seeing the reaction of someone you love when you nailed “that dish” preparation is priceless!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and share the happiness, good moments and laughs, as well as the pride, that comes with preparing a dish together with someone or by your own.
