About me

My name is Monica Pettersen and I live in Bergen – Norway, but my origin is North Norway. Since my childhood I’ve been more than medium interested in everything connected with baking! Since I work as project manager for an oil and gas company, I enjoy my afternoons and weekends baking everything within categories of cakes, dough’s both sweet and savory, dessert and everything else delicious! Mostly I use my old and well tested recipes which I got from my mother and her mother again, and also from my fathers mother and other family members and friends. I choose the ones without as much “stuff”, but sometimes I get inspired and test some new twists on them, or simply get inspired trying something new. But at the end, I always end up with the same old traditional ones both for celebrations and everyday joy.

HEIMBAKST means homemade baking.
