As Easy As Apple Pie

About me

Hi there! Nice to meet you!

I’m Elena, the recipe developer, food stylist, and photographer behind As Easy As Apple Pie.

I was born and raised in a small town in the north of Italy. I currently live in the United Arab Emirates with my husband Hassan.

I started As Easy As Apple Pie in September 2014 when I needed something to fill my days after I left my job as a flight attendant. What began as a little hobby, has turned into my full-time job.

Most of my recipes are quick, simple, and made with everyday, seasonal ingredients. Nothing fussy or complicated! You’ll find plenty of soups, saladshealthy recipes, and a few indulgent recipes too, because life is all about balance!

A few fun facts about me…

– Favorite cuisine: Italian 🍕

I never answer my phone, it’s always on silent. 😏

– If I could choose one place to live it will be Bali! 🏝️

I love running. I get up very early, before sunrise, to train. Running a marathon is on my bucket list. 🏃🏻‍♀️
