How did you get into baking?
I loved baked ever since I was a kid. Me and my Nan would always be baking together!
What do you love most about the baking process?
Everything! I love combining ingredients, watching the progress, and seeing the final result.
What inspired you to start a blog?
I always loved reading other food blogs, and food cookbooks/magazines, and that eventually inspired me to start my own blog to share my recipes.
What recipe are you most proud of?
Do you have a favorite ingredient that you like to use?
Greek style yoghurt! It makes my cakes and muffins incredibly moist.
What’s an ingredient that you’ve never used, but would like to try?
I have only baked with a few fruits, and I’m wanting to develop more recipes using fruits I haven’t used yet!
Are there any lesser known brands or products that you enjoy using?
I mostly head to my local Co-Op for ingredients, and I usually get their FairTrade products.
Do you have any advice for someone who is thinking about starting a blog?
Make sure you start a blog about something you are passionate about, because then you’ll want to maintain it, and get excited every time you hit ‘publish’! Gaining traffic and keeping readers takes time. A lot of time. But do not give up! Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle or end.
What type of gear/tools do you use for creating your blog posts?
I shoot my recipe photos with my DSLR camera, and I edit them in Lightroom.
