Born in London, raised in Adelaide, and now based in Stockholm, Miss Marzipan (AKA Marisa) is a mum of two, a professional art director, and foodie blogger (when time permits). Most of her recipes are influenced by her own personal/health journey and the various flavours and cultural experiences she’s been exposed to.

“I don’t adhere strictly to any particular food philosophy or dietary approach, but you may notice that much of what I create is sugar-free and plant-based.”

She assures us she’s not a hardline health nut and that her current cooking and eating preferences are born of varied and extremely humble beginnings, including:

::  A 7-year stint as the world’s unhealthiest vegetarian (half a takeaway falafel roll per day, anyone?)

::  A few years as an omnivorous binge detoxer (eg, Red Bull-drinking occasional juice faster)

:: An extended period of time as wellness-curious, organic-eating TTCer with newly diagnosed thyroid condition and a growing interest in home cooking

:: Being a 2-time sufferer of horrid first trimester pregnancy nausea and intense food aversions

:: Becoming an enthusiastic home cook with a (slightly sad) penchant for watching Masterchef et al

:: Gaining around 34 kilos during her first pregnancy and losing it

:: Gaining around 24 kilos during her second pregnancy and losing it

:: Discovering her daughter had a chronic infant dairy protein intolerance

:: Being married to a meatball-loving husband who suddenly went vegan overnight

She shares the things she loves in a judgement-free way… and in doing so, hopes to provide a little inspiration to others. Visit her on social,
