¡Hola! I'm Sofia, the lady behind Sometimes Churros. My mother, my daughter and I sometimes go for churros together, thus the name Sometimes Churros.
This blog is dedicated to Spanish cuisine and gourmand people.
Even though I am of various cultures: Spanish, Indonesian and Australian, have lived in 8 countries, and my husband is French, I decided to create a space to store my Spanish inspired recipes. After having lived in different regions of Spain for more than 20 years, I found that we were about to move very far away, as in to Australia. I thought it would be a pity if I didn't document Spanish cuisine. My recipes are sometimes traditional, but I also love to improvise and experiment.
I believe in eating a bit of everything in moderation unless one has a medical issue, food intolerance or allergy. Life is short, so let's not be afraid of enjoying excellent cuisine.
Also, just because so, in this space I also reflect about my travels and motherhood.
In my real life, I’m both a qualified pharmacist and a marketing professional. My pharmacy studies included nutrition and food sciences, which is why I am allowed to be nerdy if I feel like it. It is also why I don't easily buy into all the health food obsessions that everyone else may be raving about. Then evolving myself into a marketing professional, I found the way to combine my scientific background with my creativity. This blog is another extension into fueling my creativity.
I’m not big on measuring. The amounts in my recipes are approximate. My approach is that not all ingredients are the same (as in one orange can be juicier than another), not all stoves, ovens and utensils induce heat equally. You get what I mean. It's best to look, smell and taste to know if it’s right.
