Hi! I’m Sharon. Thanks for dropping in.
So, who am I?
I am a wife, a mother to two girls and twin boys, and a home cook who loves to bake mostly.
I have a passion for baking, cooking with whatever is left in the fridge to make something interesting for dinner, cooking with my kids and sometimes letting them loose in the kitchen, (getting them to clean up is the hard part), and the occasional experiment that may not always be successful.
I built a vegetable garden earlier this year with a lot of help from my husband, the results of which you will see in some of my recipes.
I also love to eat out, I have a few cafes I like to frequent and hope to tell you about them too, and I’m always looking for new ones to try.
Oh and I LOVE coffee.
My day does not officially begin until I have had one.
It has to be good and strong too, preferably a latte, and NEVER instant. Instant is terrible, I don’t even have it in my house, oh unless I need it for baking. even then I’d prefer to use a fresh shot of coffee.
when cooking at home I love to use my Kitchenaid mixer, my Thermomix (yes I am one of those people). I must say it comes in very handy when you have four kids to run around to after school activities every night. I also use a slow cooker/pressure cooker too.
I Love to buy myself and my friends the occasional treats too from a few of my favourite places such as Koko Black chocolates, the best chocolate ever, along with treats from Burch and Purchese, Zumbo and Gelato Messina. Just a few of my fave places.
I am also a Masterchef addict, I love buying cook books, Donna Hay magazines and trying new ingredients. Always happy to try new things.
