My first blog post! I am very excited.

Let me introduce myself. I’m Suzie. I love food and I love creating things (especially if they are edible).

Why a blog?  Well it’s about sharing the joy of cooking, baking and making. The worst that can happen is to make a mistake, and mistakes in cooking are mostly still edible. I’m starting a journey; starting with a small idea which came from a long held dream. This is my first step. It’s scary. I don’t know if I can do it. How did I get this far in life and still have doubts? Ah, but I am going to do it I feel it in my soul.

I am also a writer and so it makes sense.

Things you should know about me.

I have 3 wonderful sons who amaze me every day. How my babies grew into such extraordinary young men so quickly is one of life’s mysteries. When I need advice I go to them – and they are so wise.

I have been married for years and years – to my absolute best friend.

I love chocolate and my new discovery in chocolate is Kladdkaka (Swedish Sticky Chocolate Cake). I will post the recipe – I promise you it is the stuff of dreams!

I grew up in Africa, Kenya to be more specific. A melting pot of cultures, a place of wonderful memories, smells, tastes, colours and smiles. So many smiles! This is where I learned to cook.

I live in Wiltshire, a place that literally sparkles in the sunshine. There’s a weekly general market here, a collectors market, a lovely indoor market and farmers and continental markets that add colour and life to the sparkle. It’s a proper old fashioned market town.

I am embracing the grey in my hair. It’s all the rage you know (to have grey hair) so here goes. I’m loving it I think.

My favourite food quotes:

“This is my invariable advice to people:
Learn how to cook —try new recipes
learn from your mistakes.
and above all have fun.”
Julia Child

“Life is uncertain….eat dessert first!” Ernestine Ulmer

See you soon
