Welcome to Homemade Recipes!
This blog features all my favourite homemade recipes, plus other musings on home and lifestyle topics. I am an avid cook who loves kitchen gadgetry, home design, storage and organisation, online shopping, ‘growing your own’ and food sustainability. I’m not an expert at any of these things, but I’m learning, and I hope you will too.
My favourite chefs are Nigella Lawson, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Guillaume Brahimi.
I live in Adelaide, South Australia, having been born and raised in Queensland. I love my life here, living at the foothills and working in the CBD at one of the universities. I am an online marketing/systems manager by day, and mostly an exhausted Gen Y housewife by night. My partner and I have just bought our first home, and can finally take control of the space we want to live in. I’m not a great cook, or of MasterChef skill, and I don’t use ingredients like duck or quail, but I cook the kind of food you can make at home when the mood strikes and really enjoy.
I have two beautiful bunnies, Illy and Missy, and so consequently you won’t find a rabbit stew on my table. I’m enthusiastic about cooking and ingredients, but am not the most adventurous eater, so I work more on perfecting the simple food I love, and sharing it with family and friends. I sit somewhere in the middle of gourmet and everyday. I should also add the disclaimer that this is not a photography blog! I don’t have a great camera and I am not a good photographer at the best of times, so unfortunately you’ll have to taste the food to realise how good it is, rather than just looking at a pretty photo!
We have also welcomed a beautiful Samoyed named Indy to our family.
I hope you enjoy my musings and take the time to comment on my posts, I would love to hear from you.
