Hello bakers, I am Camila Hurst!

Welcome to Pies and Tacos!

I am so excited to have you here. I created this blog to share delicious recipes with the world. My passion is to create beautiful and incredible desserts that anybody can make at home!

My goal is to teach you how to make delicious desserts from scratch to impress your guests, friends, and family!

Pies and Tacos

I am from Brazil and came to the United States in 2011.

I currently live in Florida, near sandy beaches and crystal clear waters with my husband and son.

I started the blog while working as a waitress in New York. Baking and creating recipes was my creative outlet and also a coping mechanism to help me deal with my mental health at the time.

I would spend so much time in the kitchen, testing recipes, writing them down, creating five course meals, or cakes and desserts for people at work, my friends, family, and neighbors.

Soon my baking dream became too small for my little New York kitchen so I decided to start sharing with the world.

On October 16th 2017 I created Pies and Tacos.

And here we are today, 2 cookbooks, one online course, hundreds of recipes later, expanding our baking skills and sharing our love for the world of desserts together!

Thanks for being here!
