Cakes & Cookies

My name is Andreea and I was born and raised in Timisoara, Romania.  For those of you who don't know, Timisoara is in the western part of Romania.  I come from a family that loves sweets.  Even though I was from the western region of the country, my family embraced the cooking and baking style from Bucharest, the capital of Romania, which is on the eastern side of the country.  My grandmother loved to bake and she was always on the look out for new recipes, so over the years she amassed a vast collection.  She was enormously patient when it came to baking and everything had to be done just right.  Most of the recipes on this site are from her collection and they all have a European flavor to them.  Some recipes are at least 35 years old but even now they prove to be a great hit with everyone who tries them.  Because of this, I decided to finally put together a collection on this site consisting of my favorite recipes for cakes and cookies which I have enjoyed since I was a child.  This way I can pass them down to my children and to you and my hope is you will enjoy them as much as my family and all my friends do.  However, this is tedious work since all the recipes are in Romanian and all the measurements are in metric and I have to translate them in English and convert all the measurements to the standard system.  This is the reason why I started with only a few of the simpler recipes, but as I get more of them translated I will be updating the website with a few at a time.  Thank you for your patience and I hope these recipes will awaken your love for baking as they did for me and my family.
