About Me

Hello and welcome to LowCarbSpark.com! I’m Ioana Borcea, your guide on this flavorful journey where low-carb and sugar-free recipes shine.

My Journey to Low-Carb Creativity

My passion for low-carb cooking wasn’t always smooth sailing. In 2012, I embarked on this journey, but early on, I encountered conflicting information and frustrating recipe failures.

Determined to find clarity – and to satisfy my sweet tooth – I began experimenting with converting classic desserts and pasta dishes into delicious low-carb versions.

Through extensive research, I enrolled in online courses on low-carb baking and attended workshops with renowned chefs in the field. This journey not only equipped me with knowledge but also solidified my belief in the power of real food and intuitive eating.


More Than Just a Computer Scientist

While my background in computer science allows me to be meticulous and precise in recipe development, my true passion lies in the creativity and joy of cooking.

Over the years, I’ve discovered a unique combination of almond and coconut flour that delivers the perfect fluffy texture to my baked goods.

Armed with these ingredients and various certifications in low-carb baking and culinary arts, I now confidently create low-carb versions of everything from keto brownies and blueberry bread to classic sugar-free cheesecake and even no-egg keto bread!

The Low Carb Spark Difference

My recipes go beyond simply being low-carb and sugar-free. Here’s what sets Low Carb Spark apart:

  • Flavorful & Functional: Every recipe is meticulously tested and adjusted to ensure balanced nutrition, taste satisfaction, and ease of preparation. I won’t compromise on the deliciousness factor – these low-carb treats rival the originals!
  • Accessible Simplicity: Whether you’re a seasoned cook or just starting your culinary adventure, my recipes are designed to be clear, straightforward, and achievable for home cooks of all skill levels.
  • Budget-Friendly Focus: I understand the importance of creating delicious meals without breaking the bank. My recipes utilize readily available ingredients and offer cost-effective substitutions without compromising taste or quality.

Above all, I know the value of each ingredient. That’s why I ensure every recipe is foolproof before it finds a place here.

Beyond Recipes

My passion extends from recipe development to food photography and videography. I’ve dedicated countless hours to mastering these skills to visually capture the essence of each dish and provide an immersive experience for my audience. I personally edit all the step-by-step recipe videos, striving to make them informative and engaging.

Cooking with My Family and Exploring The World

Sharing my love for low-carb cooking isn’t just a solo endeavor – my husband is a constant supporter, and our 3-year-old loves being in the kitchen with me, eager to learn and help (in their own adorable way!). This shared passion makes the journey even more fulfilling.

Beyond the kitchen, I also love to travel. Exploring new cultures and immersing myself in different cuisines is a constant source of inspiration for my low-carb creations.

I even enjoy learning new languages, including Spanish, French, and German, which allows me to connect with people from different backgrounds and broaden my culinary horizons.
