This is my first blog ever.
For those of you who do not know me I would probably describe myself as a lover of chocolate, a passionate foodie and an avid collector of cooking books and dvd's.
I have always loved cooking and everything about food, I completed a one year Certificate in Hospitality (Commercial Cookery) whilst at college and was going to be a chef. Although I loved my experience at CIT it clarified that a commercial kitchen was a place of pressure and speed which was not how I wanted to cook. After college I decided to try childcare, I started a traineeship and ended up loving my job so much that a career in cookery was a distant memory. I have been working at the same centre for seven and a half years and have been a room leader for four years. I absolutely adore my job and find can't think of anything I would rather do for a living.
I still love cooking and as most of my friends would describe me as food obsessed, I thought blogging would be a great outlet for my recipes, thoughts and photos. Up until April 2011 I used basic digital cameras, some borrowed from good friends. I am now the proud owner of a Canon 550 DSLR so my photos have greatly improved. I hope you enjoy reading my blog. Lots of love Jem.
