About

Welcome to As Easy As Apple Pie!

I’m Elena, the cook, writer and photographer behind this blog.

I was born and raised in a small town in the north of Italy. I currently live in the sunny island of Bahrain with my husband Hassan and our chihuahua Pixie.

I moved here 16 years ago to work as a flight attendant. I’ve travelled the world and have seen many amazing things. Three years ago I stopped flying to spend more time with my husband, and that’s when I discovered my passion for cooking. I am not sure how it started, it just happened. Suddenly I was buying cookbooks and surfing the web for recipes and ideas.

Some of my favorite things are reading, Italian food, bread, dark chocolate, and yoga.

I don’t subscribe to any particular diet, I believe in moderation. My recipes are delicious, easy, budget-friendly and made from scratch.

I’d love to hear from you. Please visit my contact page, leave a comment or send me an email to: elena (at) aseasyasapplepie (dot) com

You can also find me on FacebookTwitterPinterest and Instagram.

Enjoy your stay! 🙂
