Mostly Mexican and sometimes international easy vegan dinners and desserts. My name is Azu. I am a Biomedical Engineer who likes to cook and bake. I cook, prepare, test and taste international recipes, and if I really like them I share them on my blog Sweet Cannela. I live in Mexico City, which has an altitude of 2,240 m (7,350 ft) above sea level, so I like to experiment with recipes for baking at high altitudes. Lately, I have been interested in making healthier recipes, using good quality ingredients and reducing the consumption of animal products. And although I don’t call myself a strict vegan, I'm making an attempt one recipe at a time. I invite you to see some of my recipes at Sweet Cannela.
