All my thoughts on buying, cooking and preparing delicious foods to nourish and make me (and those I cook for) happy! I love cooking, talking about food and experimenting with different ingredients or recipes.
I have travelled a bit throughout the world and lived in Japan and The United States of America. Whilst in Japan, I really started to enjoy trying and eating different foods and became more open to foods that I thought I wouldn’t like when I was younger.
I especially loved a huge bowl of ramen on a cold day and quite frankly ramen in Australia, just isn’t the same.
A couple of years ago, I decided to expand on my internal cookbook and have been trying different recipes ever since. Not everything has been a success, but I have learnt something with each new cooking session. I do enjoy socializing and catching up with friends and family, but there is a lot to be said about some quality time in the kitchen with some awesome ingredients.
I am not vegan or vegetarian although I do try to incorporate these ideas into my cooking and have meat less meals relatively often.
I know I can’t eat everything I want and not see the effects of that on my body, so I try and start the day with a green smoothie, eat reasonably well and then on weekends, indulge and live a little.
