Hi and welcome to Helena Recipes. My name is Helena, I am a recipe creator, food photographer, contributing writer to food-related publications and creator of healthy meal plans to save busy bees like you some time and money! A lot of it actually.
Whether it is an appetizer, main course or dessert, you can make it healthy and fancy without spending too much money and time. And I will show you how I do it.
I started my food journey in 2010 when I met my husband. I remember we went to a small restaurant where I tried my first macaroon… My delight was so big that I felt like I needed to make a few of my own as soon we would return home. Let’s face it, one macaroon is never enough for the stomach but not for the wallet.
I spent the next day looking for almond flour just to find out that none of my local stores had it. Bugger. So I decided to make my own flour for my own macaroons, too.
I bought a chopper, almonds and then prepared enough macaroons for the whole weekend. It felt good.
This was thatmoment when I realized that I could could cook anything at home, have more than one go at something tasty and save a good chunk of my weekly budget. Cooking was the secret. I changed my habbits and started to save tons of money. I believe that you can do it, too!
Now I always bring back new recipes when I travel which is why you will find dishes from around the world here!
And because my motto is “No Secrets in the Kitchen!”, I am ready to share everything I know about cooking with you as well as tips and tricks to save time and money.
