I am a thirty-something professional living and working in London. As a child I envisioned my life sprawl starting with half a decade of intense work and a glittering career, firmly followed by marriage, children and a life as a blissful housewife, passionate cook and writer. Now in my thirties I wonder how my plan fell apart? And so now my days are spent staring diligently at an office computer whilst my mind runs rampant inventing new recipes, dreaming of a way to become a trendy housewife in an age where it’s no longer fashionable – as I long to lose the nine-to-five.

    Am so pleased to read the beautifully written blog! I know of a little girl who not only made cakes from ingredients before she could read, but who so badly wanted to write things down that she wrote in picture language before she knew the alphabet before the age of five! Well done!

    I love your blog! Will certainly be trying a few of your recopies out this weekend. Banana bread looks yummy! Any chance of some savoury dishes too ?

      JB–apologies for the delay in reply – the blog has taken a backseat to house renovation in the absence of kitchen for almost a year! New recipes coming soon – and yes, watch this space for savory ones.
      Thanks for the comment!
