Welcome to Portuguese Girl Cooks! I’m Jessica, the Portuguese girl. I love to cook, bake, and share. I have new found passion for photography, and I chronicle my journey of learning food photography here. I’ve been in the kitchen baking since I was young, and haven’t looked back. Baking is in my blood. My grandparents owned a pastry shop, and since I was young I loved to help, and learn from my grandpa. He was a master baker and an amazing cook. I feel extremely inspired by him in everything I do.
I currently live just north of Toronto, in Vaughan Ontario, with my husband Medi, and my little baking assistant, Aiden (born October, 2009). Most days you can find the two of us in the kitchen baking or cooking up something delicious.
I started this blog on a whim; mainly as a way to chronicle what I baked, and to share my recipes with family and friends. I never imagined anyone would actually read it! I am extremely grateful for each person who visits. I hope you enjoy what you see, and feel inspired to cook and bake. Feel free to leave me a comment, I love receiving them, and read each and every one!
