Simone's Kitchen

Buckwheat noodles by Maura from Yellow Lemon Tree

I’ve been a fan of Maura ever since she started blogging I think. It’s always a little hard to track back on when you actually ‘met’ someone online. Whatever the case, at some point Maura won a workshop with Alex and moi and she is even more fun in real life than you can tell from reading her blog. She didn’t really need the workshop, because she already made beautiful photos on her blog Yellow Lemon Tree. She already passed by in our inspiration on Saturday series before and that is for a reason of course! Since that first time we have met a couple of times and we’ve even been on two trips together. So you see why Maura had to be one of the amazing food bloggers who are writing a guest blog here during my absence!
