About

I love to cook and garden, especially with my daughter.

I am also a busy working Mom, technophobe (I can’t use a cell phone). Unfortunately with a busy schedule I don’t have alot of time and cooking the way I used to has been squeezed aside.  Basically I want to teach my daughter how to cook and really be able to take care of herself when she is grown.  I cannot believe it when adults do not know how to feed themselves, even basic meals.  We try not to use much packages or processed foods but make real food with real ingredients.

We also collect cookie cutters and LOVE vintage kitchen items along with those old well used handwritten recipe cards that were once treasured by a cook.

I have been thinking about starting a blog for a few years now, but to kick off 2013 I have decided to really step outside my comfort zone and start a blog that combines my loves with technology. I hope you will join our adventure!

  2. Hello Evie, thank you for visiting our blog, and my post on Cherry Berry Friands. It was lovely to hear you liked it so much. It’s good to teach kids cooking young -for them it’s a wonderful game.

    I must say I’m a bit of a sucker for biscuit cutters too – just bought a double biscuit stamp, always wanted one! One side presses a pattern like a cotton reel into the dough and the other makes a flower. Haven’t had time to try it yet!

    I have a recipe for Green Thai curry paste that is so quick and easy yet tastes so fresh and vibrant it knocks the socks off anything you can buy – no matter how expensive! In Thailand and the very best restaurants, curry pastes are made on the spot, and cooked with straight away. That is why their dishes taste so amazing. But my recipe freezes very well, so you can still get that fresh, really authentic flavour every time.

    If you are interested I can post my recipe – let me know. Cheers Mimsey

  3. Hi Lori,
    Thanks for the visit. I hope you enjoyed my stuff and I look forward to you coming back for more. Your recipes look great and I do love a good butter chicken. Just one thing though, I have noticed a lot of your pictures are missing if you havent noticed yourself. Just a heads up.
    Can’t wait for your next recipe.
    Ka

  4. Hi Lori, thanks for visiting again. I must say these Hot Cross Buns my daughter made were the best I’ve ever eaten! Really fantastic and not hard to make either!
    Cheers Mims

      I love your blog great recipes and pictures. Hopefully your comments will not get filtered out anymore now, but I will have to check my spam more often to make sure no real messages and being caught in there.
