When I first created this website, I wrote an oh-so-serious and ridiculously long monologue all about me, catty and the life that is mine. Because yes, I can talk about myself. I didn’t really re-read it until now, and am floored at how ridiculously effin’ boring my life has been, up until the minute I started this blog (because yes, life alters when you have a day by day catalogue of any- and-everything you consume).
So I’ve scrapped the monologue and instead jumped on the Top Three List bandwagon, which is a much simpler, and a much better way of getting to know me.

All photos in this blog are taken by me, unless otherwise stipulated. I used Canon Digital IXUS870 IS until November 2009, when I upgraded to a Canon PowerShot s90. My camera is my baby and best friend, but this is now being challenged by my iPhone4s, which also takes amazing photos.
Please also note that I have had no formal training in writing about food, talking about food or even eating food. I write, talk and eat purely because it brings me joy
