Hello there. Would you like a cup of tea?
Pull up a stool, have a cookie. They’re really, really good.
This is my place where I like to share tasty things I make. And sometimes things I burn. Meh, no one’s perfect.
I live in Melbourne, Australia, but started this blog while in London, away from most of my friends and family.
My love of moving around the globe whenever I get a few pennies to rub together is not helped by my constant trawling of blogs and seeing things like Thanksgiving in full swing (we don’t do that in Oz), German cookies I’ve never tried and French food that literally makes me want to lick the screen on French Fridays.
I live with my lovely boyfriend Pete, and a little grey kitten called Lucy. You can see Lucy in this post.
All these posts are dedicated to how clever I think muffins are. And cookies. And well, most food in general. From a very young age when I stuck sultanas and toothpaste in our kettle to make my mum a cup of tea it was quite obvious I was set on a course of discovery.
Luckily, my family and friends love to eat. My family especially have always believed in the two stomach rule – one for main course, one for dessert.
On these pages you will find tried and tested recipes that I have been using over the years, and also recipes I have begged, borrowed and pinched from my family and friends. Where I have experimented and made mistakes you’ll see the notes, and I hope you’ll leave some of your own.
The gluten free adaptable recipes are always tried and tested, and I welcome any new recipes you’d like me to bake and post. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I don’t recommend the sultana and toothpaste tea though. Not at all clever.
