Hi, I’m Mira!

Welcome to my food blog. I’m glad you’ve stopped by.

I’m the recipe developer, food stylist, photographer and writer at Cooking LSL.

I used to live in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago with my family, but currently we reside in Eastern Europe – Bulgaria.

I love cooking and baking, this is why I created this blog.

About Cooking LSL:

This blog is a place where you can find simple, fast-to-prepare, healthy and indulgent recipes made with seasonal ingredients.

Inspire yourself to culinary success!

Most recipes include step by step photos or even videos. Feel free to contact me with any cooking questions and recipe requests.

Testing recipes, working on my photography skills, connecting with readers and fellow bloggers has been a lot of fun.

I believe in balanced eating/diet. Listen to your body, do some fasting if needed, eat small portions, but remember, you can have some dessert at times.

I share a mix of healthy, easy to make meals, perfect for busy people who never have enough time to cook dinner.

I’m a mom of a boy and a girl!

I understand how difficult it is to take care of a growing family and also work. Even though most of these healthy, easy meals are made from scratch, I’ve tried to simplify the process and give as many details and tips as possible.

I also have some indulgent dessert recipes here. Most of the time I try to lighten up my desserts, without sacrificing taste and flavor. I love baking layer cakes and making French Macarons. I mostly make them for my family events, but I’m happy to share some these recipes with you

My children are my priority! I try to create a calm and loving environment for them at home and whenever we go. We love to cook together and travel.
