I’m Tanya and I am the cook, baker, cocktail shaker and picture taker behind Lemons for Lulu. I am a self taught cook with an intense love of food. That love of food is the whole reason I started this blog back in 2012. I spent my days experimenting with food and recipes; I wanted to share my experiences just in case someone else could benefit from my trial and errors. Over time, my blog transformed into a space where people came to share their love of food.
