Hello,  I'm Emma

and I am the food and flavour lover that created this Blog. I'm so pleased you're here!


Have a nosey around for some recipes that I find delicious (even if I do say so myself) and some meal inspiration. Or feel free to look at photos of food and drool. I do that a lot, probably too much.


I like to think that this is a balanced mixture of health and indulgence. That's how life should be, right?
