Want to meet me? Awesome. I’m Katrina.
I’m a mid twenties biology geek + self taught cook, live in Ottawa, Canada, and love to experiment with different recipes.
I happily share my passion for all things vegetarian; whether sweet or savory, hoping that you too will find as much happiness in your culinary journey as I do. Because food is meant to be enjoyed!
In 2010 I graduated with a Biological Science degree and I’ve been having the time of my life learning about nature, and the beautiful world we live in ever since. I love exploring and have gotten to do so many cool things ranging from spending hours trying to mate moths in Switzerland (I lived there for two summers) to dissecting bear poop for tiny bones.
Life is crazy, so I try to maximize my own by running marathons, hiking as much as possible, travelling, and eating food that brings me genuine happiness. I started this blog in January 2010 in an attempt to document my cooking experiments, and over the course of the past three years, Warm Vanilla Sugar has reinforced for me that I wasn’t alone, and that there are thousands of people (that’s you) in this big crazy world who share similar passions and interests!
I am by no means a professional. I drop some of my finished products, my biscuits will never be as good as my Nanny’s and I’m still figuring out my SLR camera. But, I love what I’m doing, and I’ll never post a recipe that doesn’t turn out.
Hopefully you will use some of these recipes and enjoy them as much as I do. I’d love to get your feedback!
