About


First off, THANK YOU so much for popping by to visit my blog. I love new visitors, but most of all I love returning ones, I would love to get to know you too, please feel free to email me or contact me via facebook/twitter/instagram so we can get to know each other!

I am a twenty something year old who is married to the man of her dreams have a little yorkie, called Daisy Dog (Daisy for short) She is the worlds cutest dog and she is posted all over my instgram (so if you are curious go check her out!) I live in Durban - South Africa and love it here. South Africa is a stunning country, and the all round summer here in Durbs is just BLISS! My day job is working as a graphic designer for our church mission press which also runs a commercial side which funds missions into Africa and other places, so when I am not at work I am either spending time with Shane, baking, taking photographs, trying to clock Mario Bros on my Nintendo DS (what can I say - I am a child of the 80's), reading a good novel (yes, that does include recipe books!) or longing looking at my favourite baking blogs!!

I started this blog to share my passion and love for baking and photography. I would appreciate it if you could ask permission before sharing any photo or content from my blog, and would ask that you link back any content you may want to share to my blog. I especially ask that you don’t use my photos without permission. The photo part of this blog takes up more time then any other part, and I make special time for it, I would appreciate it if you would ask permission first.

Are your recipes all your own?
Most of my recipes are part of a ‘family’ recipe book that my mom has complied for my sisters and I. They are all from different people and sources, and most have been adapted to suit my style and flavour preference. If I happen to know the actual source I will certainly let you know in that particular post. (most of the recipes have been adapted, and typed, more changes made and re-typed...)

Why are all your recipes in Metric measurements?
We use the Metric system in South Africa.

Do you have any formal training?
Nope! Not all all! I even skipped out on doing home economics at school and took biology instead! HA HA. I just love baking. I have learnt an incredible amout from trial and error!

Do you sell any of the goods you bake.
I used to bake to sell, but life in general has caught up on me and I find I don’t have the time anymore, but if you do need any baking done esp for kiddies parties, drop me an email and I will see what my schedule is like around that time!

Do you bake all day?
Nope, I WISH! I work during the week and bake on the week ends when there is lots of light to take good pictures!

What Camera Equpiment do you use?
I use a Nikon D7000. I mainly use a f 1.8 50mm lense to take my baking shots.
