hey there, i’m bianka!
Welcome to Damn Spicy, here you’ll find a selection of both sweet and savory recipes that have been tested, developed, and eaten in my kitchen!
I have a huge passion for world cuisine, I’m that one gal going left and right to savor the world in every way possible.
My goal is to bring you with me as I try new dishes around the world and find out all the location-specific tips and tricks to make them taste authentic so I can share them with you. This way you’ll be able to taste the world from your own kitchen.
Whenever I share a recipe I make sure to provide clear step-by-step instructions so you can recreate it easily, no matter your skillset or where you live!
I believe that making food should be a fun activity (and eating it should be an experience) instead of a boring, dreadful task and getting into world cuisine is the best way to keep food adventurous ⏤ there’s always something new to try!
how I started out…
I started Damn Spicy in 2020, a dark year for many of us, determined to begin a new chapter in my life.
Food played a big role that year, turning into a bonding experience, a fun adventure, and even a new hobby or skill for many people. Suddenly, everyone was online and everyone was cooking and looking for the next dish to make to keep mind off things.
I wanted to be part of that.
And that’s when I started sharing all my favorite recipes: from my super popular Greek Lemon Rice, to my emergency-baking Small Batch Fudge Brownies.
And here I am, sharing new recipes every week, with a mix of savory and sweet and all the tips and tricks you might need!
Thank you for following along and trying out my recipes. You guys made my 2020 a bit more sparkly and gave me the confidence to pursue food blogging! 🧡
