This blog so far

If you have read any of my recipe posts you will know that I don’t really go in for discussing anything that isn’t directly to do with the food I’m making. I don’t know about you, but when I turn to other blogs for inspiration, I often find myself scrolling through dense paragraphs of autobiography and beautiful lifestyle photography just to get to the darned recipe, and that really isn’t something I want to inflict on anyone who ventures here.

That said, once a blog has engaged me, I will often find myself looking deeper in order to find out more about the blogger, and I don’t want to miss out on that with this blog. As a compromise, I’ve decided to add the occasional personal blog post as well.

I started this blog because I love baking and cooking, especially for other people. I’m also one of those annoying people who can’t help but share things. If you admire something I am wearing, I will instantly tell you where I bought it; likewise if you like the look of any food I have prepared, there is a good chance I will force you to try it.

Ask me to share a recipe and I will go giddy with glee. Doubly so if it’s one of my own recipes.

So here it is: spiceandcosy; an easy way for me to pass on recipes and overshare endlessly about food I have made, food I have eaten, and food I long to make and/or eat. Hopefully you will find something on here that you enjoy. I know I will enjoy creating, baking and sharing everything you see here.

This is by no means a professional blog (which I would imagine is pretty obvious!) The photos are taken with my phone camera, there is minimal editing, heck I barely even proof read. It’s is all my own work, however. All the recipes on here are my own, and if they are not (like the tiffin) then I will explicitly state as much. Everything is baked in my tiny, cluttered kitchen and generally photographed in my equally cluttered dining room. It’s just about as authentic as it can be!

Lastly, I love to talk about things I am passionate about, especially food! Always feel free to drop me a message; comments, questions or just for a chat.

Be sure to check out my Instagram for sneak peeks into what’s to come!

Happy baking,
