About A Teaspoon of Sunshine

Hi everyone and welcome to A Teaspoon of Sunshine 🙂

My name is Lucia and this little corner of the web is where I share my love of delicious food with you. I live in the beautiful south of Spain and have loved cooking and baking ever since I was little. Having grown up in Slovakia, home-cooked food infused with a lot of love was the centre of everything and the moments spent in my grandmother’s kitchen helping her bake are some of my fondest memories.

I am never happier than when I can share my food with my family, friends and people around me. I try to eat a clean and healthy diet (although an occasional slip-up happens :)) as I absolutely believe that our body is the most valuable thing we have and we should treat it accordingly. I have seen in myself the difference between eating a “normal” diet -processed food, refined sugars, meat- and eating mainly plant-based, which I have done for the last 4 years. I am continuously amazed by all the ways our life can benefit just by treating our bodies well. I am very lucky and grateful to live in the sunny Mediterranean, which means we have a wonderful variety of locally grown fruits and veggies available at various local and organic markets and this is where I do most of my shopping.

When I’m not in the kitchen, I am most probably doing yoga, playing with my camera, taking long walks on the beach with my dogs or enjoying a good book (or three)…

My two assistants, Leni and Maya, are always on hand (although the things they best assist with are laying in the sun on the terrace and snoozing :))


All of my recipes are vegetarian and most are vegan and all have a teaspoon of sunshine thrown in 🙂 I hope you enjoy them and bring a little sunshine into your kitchen / family / life…
