About Me


Lauren Mathews Food Blogger

Hi baking fanatics! Welcome to Lemon Fire Brigade!

My name is Laura and I am the main cook/photographer here on this website. From time to time, my daughter Stephanie helps me out with the recipes shared here.

Together we both have the passion for cooking, especially baking delicious and easy to make desserts.

Baking for us is not only making treats for our tummy, but a bonding time between my daughter and I. We have fun in the kitchen.

I love to share recipes I’ve learned and developed over the years. Most of my recipes are simple and easy to follow. That is the way I like it. You do not need a PHD to follow my recipes.

I am not a trained chef. I learned to cook the old fashioned way from family members and friends who shared their recipes with me. Over the years, I’ve developed and tweaked recipes I’ve learned and made them my own.

I started this blog to share my love of food and baking with you. This is a place for you and I to grow together in this culinary journey.

Follow along and check back often to see what I am baking in the kitchen!
