Aloha! I'm 29 years old and from the UK. My other half calls me his 1950's housewife because I just love to bake, preserve and cook in general! After studying catering at college I decided commercial cookery wasn't for me but I still like nothing more than discovering new dishes, throwing dinner parties and so on!
I work on the recruitment side of a quantity surveying consultancy about 25 miles north of London. I love my job. It's hard work but fast paced, challenging and my work day just flies by.
With regards to how I rate recipes, I try and keep it fair and to the system. I do my best to give no lower than 3 stars but will do on occasion if I made something as directed and it still ended up in the bin. I've never given 1 star but on occasion I'll leave no stars if I suspect something went horribly wrong. Most recipes get rated at 3/4 stars because 5 stars is reserved for spectacular recipes that become frequent users and a family favourite. Everyone has their own rating systems and that doesn't offend me. Rate my recipes as you see fit - I know what I like and what I don't and I'm here to fill my recipe book (filling anyone elses is merely an advantage), not to win a popularity competition or become chef of the year.
I'm definitely a savory girl rather than sweet. I love chicken dishes and crisps/chips best of all and ADORE my slow cooker / crock pot which I am always looking for new dishes for. I am best known for trying to invent healthy junk food alternatives for my other half who seems to believe that processed = best!
We grow a lot of our own fruit and veg (on our allotment) and I adore organic, home grown foods as well. Despite my love of all things unhealthy I also love fruit and veg and am pretty much veggie for breakfast and lunch and a carnivore at dinner! If my fiance weren't such a meat lover I would probably eat very little meat on the whole.I nearly always get my 5 portions of fruit and veg a day along with about 4 litres of water!
