About Me

I am not a trained chef by any means. In the 7th grade I baked some muffins and dinner rolls in my home economics class and that really was the extent of my ‘formal’ training. Of course I liked to cook things at home but the dishes were never really anything more adventurous then peach pie or apple crisp. Occasionally I would make dinner for my family and my favourite meal to make was minced beef fried up in my mom’s electric frying pan with onions, mushrooms and Campbell’s Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup. This would be served over buttery mashed potatoes. A real comfort meal that was perfect during our cold Canadian winters. I loved it but I’m still not sure if my parents and sister were just putting on brave faces.

When I was much younger – around 5 or 6 years old I used to make ‘dessert’. This consisted of white bread generously coated in butter and white sugar. Now I definitely know my parents were putting on brave faces for that one (sorry guys!). I still have a sweet tooth but what I really really love is butter. In fact anything dairy is absolutely top of my list; Butter, Cream, Milk and Cheese – I probably love them too much.

There weren’t many foods I didn’t like when I was growing up. For a long time I hated peas and I have no idea why. They are delicious and I am proud to say I have finally seen the ‘pea green’ light. Vegetables were never a huge problem for me, Broccoli and Courgette (Zucchini) being my top two favourites.

When I moved to London England many years ago I ended up in a bedsit, which for those of you who don’t know is essentially a cupboard with a bed in it, that is extortionately expensive. The cooking facilities were dire. There was no oven and in the UK at that time toaster ovens were unheard of. I had one electric burner to cook on and if I was using that and put the kettle on OR tried to use the hot water, the electricity switch would trip. On the whole it wasn’t a lot of fun to cook.

Now I am living outside of London in a house that has a proper kitchen! Since moving here 6 years ago I have rediscovered cooking and love every minute of it. I feel inspired to try different recipes; sourcing local as well as unusual ingredients and trying my hand at growing my own herbs and vegetables.

As a Kitchen Witch I do my best to avoid processed and GM foods. Preparing meals from scratch and learning as much as I can about the ingredients is extremely important to me. If I am able to incorporate herbs or vegetables from my garden it makes the food taste that much better. Living in Kent I am also fortunate enough to have many farm shops and farmers markets nearby. Many of them are organic and free range, which are farming methods I want to support.

Over these past few years I have felt my connection to nature strengthen. I actively work with Fairies and Angels and I cherish the special relationship I am creating with them and with Mother Earth. I want to continue working with nature in mindfulness, awareness and with respect and it is my pleasure to share my journey with you.

Love and Blessings,
