Hi there, I’m Heidi!

Welcome to my food blog!

The recipes you’ll find here are inspired by the foods I love to create for my family. I’m a wife and busy mom to three girls and nothing brings me more joy than preparing meals that my family enjoys. My girls are picky eaters, and they always have to have new foods to try or they get bored very quickly, so I always have to change up my recipes to accommodate their ever-changing palate. While it drives me a little nuts, it also pushes me to always be creating new recipes. I hope to inspire you to create delicious recipes for you and your family.

A little more about me…

I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. I moved to sunny California and got married when I was 19 years old which was over 24 years ago. I lost my Australian accent long ago, although, some words I say still come out sounding a little Aussie!

That’s also when I began cooking on my own. I fell in love with the simple pleasures of cooking and baking. I loved preparing my kitchen to be a peaceful space where I can create yummy foods. I found a deep joy in shopping for ingredients, baking my first loaf of bread, making creme brulee for the first time in my life. I found peace and joy in the art of baking. It never really mattered how good or how bad the recipe came out, I always found the experience of being alone in my kitchen and creating something with my hands so therapeutic. I have a very big sweet tooth, so I am constantly dreaming up new flavor combinations to try. Putting my creative twist on classic recipes is so fun to do!
