My name is Lynne. I am from South Africa and live on the East Coast of Natal.
I am married and have two daughters. I also am a mom to three dogs and four cats. All of which are rescues, have their very own unique personalities and make our family complete.
Keeping fit and eating healthily is very important to me even though I like to indulge a bit every now and then…nothing is better than a decadent dessert after a good meal.
I do have a crazy theory that if I eat healthily all week and exercise, then come the weekend, I can allow myself not to feel too guilty should I eat something ‘not too good’ 🙂
I am a firm believer in fresh fruit and vegetables. I love a home cooked meal full of goodness and nutrition. I prefer to make my own condiments and avoid preservatives, artificial flavours and colourants as best I can.
I think being passionate about food stems from my childhood. My mom loved to cook and bake. Her kitchen was her haven. I have fond memories growing up and helping my mom in the kitchen. Whether it was greasing the baking trays or top and tailing the beans for dinner, these were special times for me.
In my blog I am going to share some really amazing recipes with you. Basically they will be what we will be eating. Some will be from my childhood days from my mom, family and friends. These recipes she had put together in a book, some written in her own handwriting and some pinned or stapled to the necessary pages of her book. Some recipes are so old and discoloured, I have no idea where they originally came from.
I will also share some of my personal finds from newspapers, cookbooks and magazines which I have put together over the years in a file.
