Hi there, I am Julia! I am the person behind this blog called Julia Recipes. I am so happy to meet you and welcome to my blog about big love for food & food photography!
About blog Julia Recipes
Let me tell you a bit about my blog and me. I started this blog back in Summer 2016, as my creative outlet to simply follow my big passion for cooking and particularly baking. I have always been in the kitchen since I was a little girl, following my mother’s and grandmother’s instructions how to make this or that dish uniquely delicious.
This blog offers a wide range of my favourite homemade recipes, what I love to cook and bake, on repeat, for my family and friends. For example, our favourite Roasted Duck or amazing Chili Con Carne. Some recipes are inherited from my family such as Apple Strudel or Roasted pork with dumplings and sauerkraut, and on some recipes where I took a little modern healthy-ish twists such as Alfredo zuchhini noodles.
And because, I am a girl with a sweet tooth, my blog offers plenty of sweet baked goods recipes like cheesecakes, traditional cakes and any other sweet desserts. And my famous Czech Christmas cookies. If you love to try new style of Christmas cookies then you have to get my FREE E-BOOK with my 10 favourite Christmas cookies.
I have also special sections on this blog, dedicated to Czech cuisine. Why? Read more about it in About Julia, the author.
About Julia the author
Hey, little introduction about myself! I am a girl with a big sweet tooth! UFF I am so lucky my real teeth are still on its place 🙂 I just can’t live without chocolate, ice cream and all the sweet goodies. My favourite dessert of all is cheesecake, as a cake I would have to go with vanilla cake and as an ice cream, praline flavour would be my pick.
I live currently in the Eastern part of Canada, just a bridge away from the famous multicultural city of Montreal. Montreal is a city of poutine, bagels and smoked meat. I am so lucky to live in a city, influenced with so many cultures and food to choose from any continent of the world. If you decide ever visit Montreal, rest assured, that if you choose to eat in an Indian, Japanese, Mexican, Italian or Szechuan restaurant, you will eat the authentic cuisine, without visiting the other country!
I was born and raised in the Czech Republic, a small but beautiful country in a heart of Europe. This is why am I sharing some of my traditional Czech recipes on this blog. When I was very young, I have fallen in love with Canadian prince charming and few years later I am having twins, writing this blog, and soon we will adopt a cute little puppy. As you can see, the life is very busy, but fulfilling. I am grateful for every and each of you coming back to my blog and trying out my recipes.
My vision for this blog is to show you, that homemade meals don’t need to be boring and with a bit of love, time and practice, you can achieve amazing dishes prepared with fresh & local ingredients.
Where can you find me?
I am covering few social media platforms. I am being present daily on Instagram, where I share some cooking and baking tips, our little family trips and some extras about life in general. In my Facebook community, I share more recipes written from this blog and some fun stuff about cooking. You can also find me on YouTube which is an excellent source of video recipes, so if you are more visual, go and visit my You Tube channel.
I have a big passion for food photography. And because I am in the food photography for little over two years, I have gathered some material and experience during my food photography journey. I would like to share some tips & tricks with you, about food photography, here as well. For now the section is still in development, but soon you will be able to learn with/from me, how to take pictures of your delicious food, of course, with professional camera.
