About

Hiya! I’m going to keep this short and sweet, because who really wants to spend their time reading the ‘about’ page of a blog??

I’ve been writing for my whole life (just under eighteen years – so really not a massive amount of time) and I love it. From stories at four, to fake newspaper articles at seven, to fiction pieces of crime and drama at eleven, to poetry at fourteen, to even more creative pieces now, it’s a way of channeling everything inside of my head and making it into some form of reality.

I’ve been published a few times – only small articles – but each time, it gave me a sense of hope and a surge of adrenaline. Someone suggested to me that I should start a food blog as I eat out far too much. I laughed it off initially: how could I ever become a food critic? My cooking ability is nothing short of disastrous – I once set fire to a toaster. The thought stayed with me though, and as horribly cliché as the phrase is, a seed was planted in my mind, and it began to grow and develop.

So this is just a little taster (if you pardon the pun) of the foods and places that I’ve spent my time with, mostly around Glasgow, although some will be hopefully slightly further afield as I explore my adventurous side (and purse – the train is a fortune when you can no longer get away with being a child) and branch out into the world of ‘fine dining’.

    I would like to hear the story about setting fire to a toaster. A friend set butter on fire in a microwave. We all have our learning curves.

      So far as yet I’ve never managed to have any microwave disasters, but, knowing me, I couldn’t rule it out. I wish I could remember exactly how the toaster incident came about, but I’ve been trying to block that moment of severe embarrassment out of my mind for a while – all I wanted was a toasted bagel.. Guess you need to be careful what you wish for.

    I definitely would like to hear the story about the burning toaster! I set my microwave on fire cooking popcorn one night. It would not have been so bad but the fire extinguisher pressure was so strong that is blew out the fire and blew white powder all over the kitchen too! I spent more time cleaning up the kitchen than putting the fire out! (chuckle) Needless to say, I’m very careful cooking in the microwave. I prefer a stove top!

    I live in Virginia, USA and review books and recipes on my blog. I would love if you would try some of my recipes and let me know what you think. I promise not to include anything that has to be cooked in a toaster!

      Microwaves are a worrying area for me also – I now try to stay away from electronics whilst in the kitchen.. Think you very much for visiting my blog – keep checking up on it! I will definitely look at yours; I’d love to try some recipes – but yes, no toasters for the moment..
