I’ve been a fan of cooking for as long as I can remember. Some of my favourite childhood memories are of cooking with my Mum (who you may notice commenting on my posts as tuthersue). She started teaching me how to cook when I was just a toddler and she used to let me play with pastry like most kids play with play-doh. When I became vegetarian in my teens I started to help make my own dinner, and that’s when I really fell in love with trying new recipes and tweaking them to make my own. I now love experimenting in the kitchen, and have great fun making complicated things from scratch (like tempeh and seitan). I want to share some of my recipes, experiments, and things I’ve learned with the world.
I want my food to be simple, seasonal, and mostly healthy. I’ve gradually transitioned to a vegan lifestyle since I started this blog, and as of early 2014 I’m now completely plant-powered. I’m choosing to leave the small number of non-vegan recipes on here for historical reasons.
I also love growing vegetables and don’t let silly little things like not having a garden get in the way of that.
I live in Carlisle with my husband Dr Veg, a beardy scientist who never complains when I spend ages taking pictures of our dinner before letting him eat.
