Thanks for checking out my blog!
I am an English ex-pat living in Sweden, mum to two gorgeous boys, work part time as a home language (English) teacher and spend way too much time on my blog!
In 2015, I took a spur of the moment photo of an apple cake I’d made (I think I must have been very proud of it) and decided to start a food blog (as you do). From taking random photos, it is has now become an
obsession hobby which brings me so much joy, but also many sleepless nights about the quality of my pictures! Now I have a blog which I am incredibly proud of, one which is going from strength to strength, and I am also a Huffington Post contributor. Wow!
So the food: for me, it’s all about simplicity. Why make anything trickier than it needs to be? The emphasis is on homemade dishes with fresh, wholesome ingredients.. I am increasingly interested in gluten-free alternatives (and I am on the seemingly never-ending hunt for the perfect GF bread) and love to see where I can cut fat and sugar without cutting the taste! I am aware that the blog does sometimes have a bit of a multiple personality thing going on, with one day an obscenely naughty chocolate cake, followed by cookies made without refined sugar. And that’s okay with me. Life’s just about balance. The most important thing for me is not necessarily the amount of sugar something has, but the fact that is made from scratch.
~ Disclaimer! I’ve just recently started adapting my recipes to also include American cups. However, although I try to be as accurate as I can, I work better with metric measurements, so if you are unsure my conversions are correct, always double check yourself!
I write the blog in English, but I am more than happy to translate any recipes into Swedish.
USING MY IMAGES/RECIPES!
If you’d like to use any of my images or copy my recipes, I’d be more than honoured, but please make sure you credit the recipe and the blog – let me know where you’ve featured them, as it is always interesting to see!
WORK WITH ME!
I spent a couple of years working as a freelance writer, so if you think my blog would be a good fit for your product through a sponsored post, let me do the hard work and write something for you. Or maybe you’d like to send me something baking oriented to review (please, please!), like I have done with OXO . I am open to all possibilities (as long as cooking/baking is involved), so please get in touch!
There are loads of ways you can get hold of me! I’d love to hear from you!
