I’m a thirty-something cooking enthusiast with a spatula in one hand and a sense of culinary wonder in the other. Growing up, I never learned to cook. A few years ago I decided to tackle it. I wanted a challenge, to push my boundaries and comfort zone and I got what I asked for! I also discovered that, contrary to my opinion, cooking wasn’t that difficult, as long as I had a good recipe with very good instructions. I had to eat my words.
I am 100% self-taught. My friends and family have given me tips here and there but most of my knowledge is simply from old fashioned trial and error mixed with a great deal of today’s main go-to source, the internet. I quickly realized that cooking was my happy place. If you had told me this five years ago, I would have said something like “quelle horreur!” in astonishment. I didn’t realize how relaxing and rewarding it would be. It has been my sanctuary. When I’m in the kitchen, I switch off from the world around me and focus on creating something that is going to bring people happiness, whether it’s a multi-course dinner party for 12 or just the hubby and I.
All of the recipes I share have been tried and tasted at least half a dozen times. I’m not too new to cooking but I’m new to blogging so bear with me as I navigate my way through it and attempt to open up yet another unknown world. Oh happy daze!
