Hello and Welcome!

Hey hey dolls!

I issue a warm welcome to you who has ventured the limits of the Internet to explore my little blog.

I have to admit I am a blogging virgin, in terms of writing about something I enjoy and aside from the short “blog” responses that we are required to do for uni in relation to subject content. This can be considered the official loss of my “B Plates,” if you will and I appreciate your presence in this matter.

Over the coming weeks I will be utilising this space as an exploration of my own into the magnificent world of cooking, baking and food in general. Over the significant 7 week holiday break I have just encountered between semesters (yes, I am an arts student who is lucky enough not to have any exams) I found myself with a little bit of spare time here and there as a recent life change seemingly opened my calendar right up.

I think my obsession officially started when I decided to make cupcakes for an upcoming friends birthday. Personally, I’m not the biggest sweet tooth and can often be described as a bit of a health freak when it comes to food, however I love it in every form. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. I revel in the ability to create something delicious from just a few ingredients. I can’t help enjoying the happiness that comes from a gesture such as making cupcakes for a friend or letting mum take the night off from being head chef.

Now my mum is no masterchef but she always amazes me with her ability to make a meal with no recipe and no measurements. I don’t know if it’s my personality or my fear of making a mistake but when I cook, I follow the recipe to the T!

This blog is ultimately my desire to learn how to cook more than just cupcakes. I want to try to recreate recipes for every meal of the day, even the sneaky treats, with the help of my iPhone app, ‘FoodGawker.’ I’m not looking to be the next chef anywhere, I just want to try something new and if it tastes good in the process that’s just an added bonus.

I hope when you read my blog you can try to understand some of the fun and enjoyment I’ve had and who knows, it might give you the motivation to try it yourself. 🙂

Lady Jayy. xo
