I'm a New Zealander, living almost right at the bottom of New Zealand in Dunedin with my Irish husband Emmet and our little 5 year old Fox Terrier Ella.
I'm a scientist by training, with a PhD in molecular neuroscience. After finishing my PhD I spent a year split between research and teaching but found my happiness was with the teaching, so I now teach university students full time!
When I'm not teaching I can usually be found writing new recipes, or creating in the kitchen.
I have always loved cooking and baking but never really created my own dishes as I never had that much kitchen confidence until I met the love of my life, my now husband, who genuinely enjoyed my cooking and gave me the confidence I needed to come out of my shell. He is a fantastic cook himself so I absolutely LOVE when I have my him with me creating in the kitchen.
I started this blog in September 2013 after encouragement from my husband and friends, and what a fantastic decision that was! I absolutely love creating in the kitchen and coming up with new recipes!
I really love when my readers give me ideas on what meals they would like to see here so please don't hesitate with the suggestions!
You can find me on various social media platforms, I'd love to follow you back so please let me know that you've followed and I will gladly return the love.
