kitchen

Welcome to my kitchen!

I am still quite a novice cook. I had always enjoyed cooking and baking since I was a child but was never really able to cook anything without looking at a recipe. After getting married in the Spring of 2012, I have a new official taste-tester at home and I enjoy cooking even more! Now as I cook more often I try to experiment and recreate my mother’s dishes which I loved as a child, as well as experiment with seasonal ingredients. Tomatoes are my favorite ingredients to work with all year round.

  1. Seems you have not been cooking more now that you are busy with sewing and knitting. All I can say is your hard work really pays off. Love that Sudoku dress

    1. Thank you!
      I hope to get back into the cooking too soon especially now that the Japanese kabocha pumpkin (one of my favourite ingredients) is in season again^^
