Hi all! I'm so thankful you've stopped by... I'm an American who moved to England when I married my British husband! I adore cooking and am usually thinking about the next dish on the menu. I like to think of my cooking as a fusion of cultures... German/Swedish roots from my mom's side, good southern food from my dad's side, a touch of Polish cuisine from my au pairing travels, and of course Mexican favourites from back home. I owe the joy of cooking from my mother, who always let me watch her in the kitchen, and who put me in the role of 'supper-maker' when I was a teen. I also love to travel and experience real destination food. I also had the brilliant opportunity to work with Cafe Abundance (part of the Real Junk Food Project) in Cornwall, UK, making tasty meals out intercepted food that would otherwise have gone to waste! In this role it brought out all the creative juices in our team to make wholesome meals for the community out of unwanted food. It's definitely made me love cooking more!
Since then I've continued to cook, bake and read an incredible amount of cookery books, magazines and food blogs! Some say I should start my own blog, and we're still working on that...
I love how eating nourishes and brings people together, and I love knowing where the ingredients come from and how to use them wisely. It's my pleasure to share this food experience with you around my table.
