We are Abby and Leigh, two friends in the kitchen. After years of feeding family and friends, the odd school fundraiser and numerous requests for recipes, we decided it was time to share some of our favourites.
Leigh loves to bake, anything and everything, and sometimes she even cooks dinner! With two delightful daughters and an active husband she has a receptive audience. The first thing Leigh remembers making was a pavlova at age nine and was cooking dinner for her family every Saturday night from this age. When not in the kitchen Leigh enjoys a game of squash, walks her dogs on the beach or is out in the boat. Leigh describes the kitchen as her happy place.
Abby enjoys cooking and with three kids, husband and lots of sport, fuelling the family is a constant challenge (how can five people have such different tastes?). The first thing Abby remembers making was pikelets – but using a quarter of a cup of salt not sugar! Fortunately things have improved since then. Abby loves being behind the camera, and likes that food doesn’t fidget or make faces when you are trying to get a picture.
The purpose of the blog is purely to share recipes and food ideas. We don’t follow any particular diets or food fads. And we cook with sugar. We hope that you will enjoy the recipes and welcome your comments and feedback.
