About Me

Baking a cake

Hi and welcome to my blog

I’m Emily and I’m a serial food-photographer. I’m sure my photos have been blocked by many of my friends – there are only so many pictures of green smoothies that a person can stomach before it gets too much.  I have a few ‘fans’ who told me that I should write a blog (I hope you’re following me now!) but I was struck by “who cares about what I have to say???”.

But maybe I was born to be a food blogger, when asked for a recipe it reads like a food blog with side comments, and oh so helpful thoughts.  Some of my favourite food blogs are:  http://ohsheglows.com/,  http://deliciouslyella.com/ and http://keepinitkind.com/

I have a passion for making healthy, natural food – and yes that can include cakes, desserts and pies! I want to make all food accessible – or as my hubby says: “Emily-fy it”.

I got married in September 2012 to my childhood sweetheart, after 11 years together.  I just have to check with him if I am allowed to use his name, or shall I use a mutually-agreed blog nickname…

Our Wedding Day

I am also a bit of an exercise-bunny – It probably comes from sitting down all day at work.  I ‘love’ (not sure that’s the right word!) the gym and swimming, but i have the most fun at group exercise classes – BodyJam, Body Combat, Step Aerobics, Yoga, BodyPump.

I have no qualifications, I’m just writing about what I know.  How do I know what makes good food?  “It comes naturally!”

So please get settled down, have a look round and enjoy!
