About Us

My name is Clair (aka she cooks), and I have put together this site with the help of my husband Peter (aka he cooks), to provide you with great cooking tips, ideas and quick and easy recipes.

As well as the recipes we share some of the goings on in and around the kitchen. The stories in the blog section of the site are real; you just couldn’t make up this material 😉

We both really enjoy cooking, and find no better way to spend time together than cooking and sharing a meal (along with a lovely glass of wine). But of course, both our busy lives (including full time business, kiddies, dog, gym, sport etc) do tend to get in the way of food preparation, which is why I try to include recipes on the site that are quick and easy as well as being delicious. And why sometimes things go a little bit wrong.

I love baking and cooking for dinner parties, so you will notice some of these kind of recipes (i.e. time consuming) on the site, however I think these things have their place (at the weekend, when you have time!). I am not encouraging you to spend hours in the kitchen after a long day at work.

Keeping in mind that most people want to get home and have dinner on the table with a minimum of fuss, I have created the ‘Quick & Easy Dinner Ideas Series’. Check it out; there are a number of healthy, quick and easy dinner recipe ideas that will (hopefully) make your middle-of-the-week life a bit easier.

If you spend a bit of time of the site you will probably notice that I love sweets, given the number of deserts, slices, cakes and pastry recipes, but I do try to stay healthy and balanced, so I will post the occasional savoury dish 😉

We both hope that you enjoy our site as much as we enjoy cooking! If you have any comments, please let us know by commenting on the recipes and blog articles, we would love to hear from you.
