About Lianna

Welcome to The Little Spork! I’m so happy that you are here.

I’m Lianna, the voice, the baker, the runner and the photographer behind the blog.


I’m a Canadian girl, grew up in Toronto and lived in a couple of smaller towns while finishing up an undergraduate degree in sciences and just recently packed my bags and headed to the mountains, out west to beautiful Vancouver. I love browning butter, the intoxicating scent of a wild rose, spending time with loved ones, and of course baking!


Aside from my love for baking and experimenting in the kitchen, I am also passionate about running and yoga. I have recently completed two marathons and am addicted to the infamous runner’s high (as well as suffering for extended periods of time.. :P). I am constantly setting new goals for myself in my running journey and my yoga practice and I hope to share them with you here.


I have a tendency to gravitate towards people who seem to love life the way I do. I love to surround myself with others who have dreams and ambitions as big as mine. I’m in a constant state of wanderlust. I love travelling, I’m perfectly happy travelling on my own (so far I’ve travelled solo to New York City and Costa Rica!). I love getting lost and finding myself. I’m happiest meeting new people in new places, experiencing new things, foods, scents, flavours, feelings. I love feeling alive.

I originally started this blog in January 2011 with the sole intention of documenting my favourite recipes and kitchen endeavours. This blog has since become so much more than just that. It’s become a way for me to express myself and a way to meet other like-minded bloggers and readers who share the same passion in food and a healthy and active lifestyle as I do. I hope to inspire you to try out new recipes in the kitchen, set physical goals for yourself that once seemed impossible, and to have a positive outlook on life!
