Hey everyone, I am so happy to be here at Alililly. I love my girl Ami, and am so lucky to have her as a friend. She is so awesome, and generous, and kind, and full of life. She was definitely one of my very first supporters, and I will always consider her very special to me. Thanks Ami for letting me say hi to your readers.
My name is Bella ~ Isabella~ and I am the one behind the blog:
I started on this blogging journey in August of 2010. After being a SAHM for 12 years, it started getting to me. I needed something to call my own, other than my kids, lol. Getting a job, unfortunately is out of the question for now, as my kids need me WAY to much, even more so as they get older. Plus being mommy is my number one joy, and duty in life, right now.
I am Romanian, born in Transylvania, came to the U.S. when I was just a baby, lived in California for a good 20 years, (Orange County) and now live in the south (sigh) with my husband who is from India, and 3 kiddos, who range in age from almost 12 to almost 4, with an almost 7 princess in the middle. I love to cook, and have learned quite a lot of Indian food, of course Romanian food, and I grew up loving Mexican food. I like to blog about food, and share recipes with my readers. I’m particularly passionate about organic, non processed home cooked meals.
Some HOT Kerala Indian fish curry, Bella style!!
Some crazy good BRICK Chicken!!
Savarine, a delicious Romanian pastry!!
Did I mention we make cakes too?
You can check us out on Facebook, for more cake designs!!
I also love to craft, and love to create, and LOVE to save money, and hopefully save the earth a little too, by trying to reuse things I already have, and upcycle other peoples trash. My most favorite kind of craft involves recycling products, and not spending money.
Making the cheapest possible St. Patty’s decorations 🙂
I am growing my own pineapple plant!!
Decorating the girls hands with Henna, Mehndi!!
I love to garden and can’t wait to work on it again!!
I also host a weekly party called
I’ve worked really hard at redesigning my blog so I can FEATURE my top 10 every week, on my SIDEBAR, the whole week. It’s a great way to be seen, by the masses, hehe ( I wish), but ONE day, I will be big, and you will BEG to be featured on my blog. Until then I do it happily and love helping out new bloggers, because after all, I’m still learning myself, and support is key to growth.
I love all my followers, and have made some wonderful friends, bloggy friends, and look forward to getting to know you too.
So come on over and see how I clean my stove with my shampoo!
