Welcome to my new blog! After nearly three years I took the plunge and moved to a proper site. For those who don’t know me, my name is Donna and I work in admin but I spend far too much of my time thinking about food.
I originally started this blog I had notes and downloaded recipes recorded on scraps of paper and the kitchen was a mess because of it. This blog was my way of organising it. It hasn’t curbed my love of buying cookbooks and my collection is growing and growing. I love them, I keep a stack of them by my bed and read them like novels! I’m growing in confidence in the kitchen everyday and more and more of the recipes on here are my own.
There is nothing difficult or particularly authentic about these recipes, simply my take on recipes or meals I’ve enjoyed. If you try any of the recipes do come back to tell me how you got on. Unless I’m baking, I rarely actually measure ingredients. The measurements here are a rough guide and I often substitute ingredients if I don’t have everything needed to hand. Cooking doesn’t have to be regimented.
It’s just food the way I like it!

Thanks for following me! I also love reading cookbooks, although sadly I had to leave many behind when we moved to Italy… I suspect you have a lot more than me!
Thank you! It’s a long time since I was in Italy but I would gladly trade my books (and a lot more besides) to get back there, even for just an extended holiday.

Hi, I have nominated you for the Liebster Award! I hope you don’t mind. Here are my posts that will tell you more about it 🙂 Cheers
Thanks Aishwarya I’ll take a look now!
So funny, I started my blog for the same reason: I couldn’t find my recipes and I thought this would organize them.
Have you found it helps? My kitchen is definitely (slightly) tidier 🙂
