I’m a “cookie” who’s willing to try any recipe once. I’m not a fantastic cook but I sure can bake. I started cooking about 5 years ago but only seriously cooking in past couple of years. For role models I have my Dad who is an amazing cook who has made almost every delicious meal I’ve ever had and my husband who makes a wicked curry and he’s willing to eat everything I put in front of him. My medium sized kitchen in the suburbs is white which is a problem because I’m a messy cook but I have a dishwasher (yay!). I love to cook but I never commit to a recipe or a book. The hum of the oven heating up and the gurgling of a pot are two of my favourite sounds. I love the smell of fresh baked cakes and cookies. I have piles of cookbooks with cracked spines and splattered pages which means that they have been loved and will be loved.
