Hi Everyone!

I’m Mafalda and I’m the one that cooks! Makes sense right?

If you’re a follower since the start in 2015 you know that this used to be a food blog called Food on the side. I’m currently updating this domain to be less of a blog and more of a homemade baked goods business. I will still keep the old recipes up, but will put more emphasis on the baking itself and what can be ordered, such as celebration cakes, cupcakes, cookies and tarts.

If you are seeing this site now and wondering why some things, such as branding and what not, don’t make sense, that’s why…We are under reconstruction!

Stay tuned!

Cheers šŸ™‚

  1. Thanks for connecting up on WP ^.^ you mentioned you are an expat; where are you from and where do you live now? (I am a big American man in no little apartment in rural Japan.) have you picked up some interesting, exotic indigenous foods in your journey? Also, what is your field that you mentioned? What are you normally photographing in your job?


    1. Hello derek šŸ™‚ Thank your for message and for taking interest in my blog šŸ™‚ I am Portuguese but am now living in Istanbul, Turkey. I do not work as a photographer nowadays, unfortunately that didn’t happen for me and I couldn’t pursue it any longer šŸ™‚ Nonetheless at the moment I work in Tourism, being in the office mainly in a travel agency in the city center šŸ™‚ I actually really like it as it gives me a change to put a mix of knowledge into practice. I used to do fashion and arquitecture photography which I liked because I’m a bit of a control freak šŸ™‚ anyway here in Turkey as a special food, well I can’t say I picked up a lot of tradicional food but it certainly was challaging to figure out what is what in the market. They have this nice plums here that are green and really tiny, and they eat it with salt. I just love that šŸ™‚ Anyway being in japan I guess you have a bunch of stories to share too!
