Hi there! My name is Valentina and I am The Baking Fairy!
I am 27 years old, and I am a pediatric physician assistant by day, food blogger & cake decorator by night. I was born in Italy, but I've been living in Texas for more than half my life. So I'm basically a full Texan at this point. 🙂
I've been with my high school sweetheart for the past 12 years, and we just got married in 2019! You can check out some of the posts I made for the wedding, including color schemes, wedding cake tasting, wedding invites, engagement photos, and of course a post about the BIG DAY!
I was a nanny for over 6 years throughout high school and college, and I miss my kiddos dearly! I love working in pediatrics and getting to see sweet babies all day long.
I've been a vegetarian since 2018, and transitioned to veganism in mid-2019. You can find a mix of everything on this blog - it's evolved with me over time! My older recipes do include animal products like meat, eggs, and dairy, but my more recent work is exclusively plant-based. I have absolutely loved the journey to veganism, and it is so fun and satisfying to be able to recreate vegan-friendly versions of old favorites and family recipes.
Be sure to follow me on social media - I am especially active on Instagram! You can follow along for behind-the-scenes sneak peeks of blogging, recipe development, and everyday life. I also love sharing my grocery hauls and the best vegan finds & deals.
