Not everyone is a wizard in the kitchen. At 23 years of age I came to the realization that all of those years I had begrudgingly helped my parents in the kitchen did not mean I knew how to cook.

You think you know how to cook and then you move out of your parent’s home.

That’s where my recipes come in! I love baking and am great at it. However, I still struggle to make something as easy as garlic roasted potatoes without a piece of paper guiding me – the oven temperature escapes me every single time! I am also hopelessly unmotivated to cook each night, so the easier the item is to create, the more likely I am to make it.

a text box that reads 'if you like to mill stalks of wheat into homemade flour, my recipes are not for you.'

Here are all the recipes I’ve posted to the blog. I’ve taken the liberty of posting links to each page in an effort to save you from smashing your phone in a fit of hunger while standing in the kitchen at dinner time. The recipes are from the US so the temperatures are in Fahrenheit and the measurements may look odd – google will convert everything to your country’s system. Or you can live on the wild side and order a set of US measuring cups from Amazon. One of my UK readers did this and said she’s never had so much fun with a bag of flour.

What exactly does the UK do with their flour?!
