Would you like to learn about me? Hello and welcome! My name is Irina, I am the mother of two wonderful sons, the wife of a loving husband and a full-time working professional.
BLAC – the abbreviation of Baking Like a Chef – is the place where I share recipes of delicious desserts to make at home.
When It All Began
I have been baking since I was 9 years old when I was collecting recipes from my mom’s old magazines and baking early in the morning on weekends. Sometimes, when my baking was not turning out the way I wanted, I threw it away and started all over. I was persistent…
Over the years, my baking skills have improved and the hobby of my childhood has become a passion and an essential part of my life. There is a nice quote: “Do more of what makes you happy,” and baking really does the job for me.

All my passion is about desserts. Here, on my blog, I share recipes adapted or inspired by world’s most known chefs, twists on classic desserts and my own creations.
