Hello baker friends!
I am so excited to have you here!
My name is Camila. I was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I moved to the US in December 2011, and I currently live in Florida.
My Baking Journey
I grew up in a bakery. My grandparents had a bakery located a couple of blocks away from my house in Brazil.
My mom would bring us there every day to visit my grandma. My sister and I played with bread dough from a huge machine that would knead pounds and pounds of bread dough every day.
My grandma was the baker. Her clothes were always full of flour, and she was always back there, baking. She woke up before the sun everyday for 50 years to bake bread and pastries.
Baking has a special place in my heart, and it’s one of my favorite ways to express my creativity.
Pies and Tacos
I came to the US in 2011 with absolutely nothing but a suitcase.
I worked as a waitress for 7 years, I had extreme depression and anxiety and started baking in 2015 as a way of coping. I used to make my own recipes and write them down.
Soon my baking dream became too small for my little New York kitchen (where I lived at the time) so I decided to start sharing with the world.
In July 2017 I created an Instagram account and on October 16th 2017 I created the blog Pies and Tacos.
My passion is to create recipes, teach people to make beautiful desserts, inspire people to put their heart in what they do, and most of all follow what they like doing and what sparks a light in their soul.
I have published two cookbooks: Fantastic Filled Cupcakes and Macaron School.
