I had a sudden flash back to writing this post. Back then I was a girl that didn't really like cooking but had starting obsessing about pretty kitchens.
Now I'm more than halfway towards a pretty kitchen of my own. I just need the cupboard doors to be built and the drawers and buy a cooker hood, and then the open shelves oh and then the round mirror, bah. We'll get there eventually. In the meantime I have a working oven and 4 gas rings to cook away to my heart's content.
Yip cooking, now I love it. I have developed an unhealthy cookbook obsession and have more than a little crush on Nigel Slater and Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall. (It might be specs, my boy also sports a pair).
With the pretty kitchen getting there and the new oven installed, my training as a domestic goddess can well and truly begin. Soon I should be whipping up tasty treats and tantalising tummy fillers with ease and I will be sharing my successes and, no doubt, some disasters with you.
I'm taking part in Foodie Penpals for the first time this month and there will be a full post about that soon but if you can't wait there is more info here and here.
