As with all good ideas…somebody’s already thought of them, acted on them and blogged about them. So I make no pretence to be original here – this is really an indulgence for myself. I love cooking but am really not very good at it. Don’t get me wrong, I am much better than when I tried to woo my husband and burnt the soup, but John Torode is definitely not head-hunting me.
So here I will blog about my cooking, which for most of you will be the ideal alternative to Nytol, but really this is a blog just for me and will stop me inflicting pictures of my cupcakes on my facebook friends.
I attribute my love of cooking to Nigella Lawson. It was she (through her TV programmes and recipe books) who inspired me. She, who is not a trained chef, writes with humour, personality and genuine love of food and is generally fabulous. She also shares my love of kitsch! Whenever I have those moments of kitchen panic I think to myself…What would Nigella do?
