Hi! My name is Lee-Ann Grace, it’s great to meet you and welcome to my blog!
I am one of those people that love that moment when someone eats a dish you have created and asks…
“Can I have the recipe?”
I am the creator and photographer (still learning!) of what I hope will be a life changing
venture adventure for me…
I live on the mid-north coast of New South Wales, Australia and by day my job is front line customer service for the NSW state government. By night (and late afternoon/evening and all weekend) I am a part-time food blogger, hoping to change the direction of my life and become a full-time food blogger.
That’s where you come in…
My aim is to create recipes for you that taste great but are also easy to cook. Mostly savoury, but some sweet as well. No weird exotic ingredients (I live too far from anywhere to buy them anyway) or recipes that require any fancy kitchen equipment that normal folks like us don’t own! I don’t claim to be any expert, but I’m a thinker and a planner (and quite frankly a bit of an explainer (new word!) which is a trait I get from my Dad – you will see what I mean in my recipe notes!) All of which will hopefully make feeding your loved ones easier and tastier.
My food blogging journey started in the middle of 2016, when I got a call from a prominent recipe magazine here in Australia, letting me know that I was one of four finalists in a recipe competition I had entered some time before called “The Great Aussie Spag Bol Challenge 2016”.
Well. After I stopped walking around in circles (I actually did) and saying “oh my gosh…oh my gosh…oh my gosh…” to myself, I finally got it together, went to the cook-off, had a FABULOUS time and didn’t win.
Although I didn’t win, what I did get was validation, and the confidence I needed to start the food blog that had been in the back of my mind for the last few years. Quite frankly, I’m looking to get more personal satisfaction from my work life, and what better way to do it than through cooking (which I love) and sharing what I love.
I read somewhere once…”Monday’s aren’t that bad, it’s just your job that is”…or something pretty close to that! When I saw that phrase I had a light bulb moment. I know it sounds silly, but I knew I hated Mondays (and Sunday nights!) and it just hit me – I could be doing a job where Monday is a good day! How cool would that be?
So here I am, trying to make good Mondays for myself…and YES you sure can “have the recipe”,
PS: Just to let you know I am a complete computer novice – the only working computer in the house up until a year ago was a smart phone. I’m a bit of a self-confessed technophobe…so what did I do? Start a blog! I don’t mind telling you it has been a VERY steep learning curve! If you see anything weird, feel free to let me know! Any advice will be greatly appreciated! x
