I can’t wait to meet the bloggers that I’ve been talking with online for more than two years! I’ve never met a fellow blogger in person before, so I’m expecting a lot of chatter about food, styling and blogging – and a lot of people taking photos of their lunch!
My blog is a part-time job for me. I’m also a digital marketing consultant. I have two kids, aged 3 and 5, so I’m kept very busy.
I am obsessed with vegetables, and particularly putting them into creative desserts (hello, Kale Cupcakes!) so, when I was made redundant while on maternity leave, I started the blog as a fun project. It has grown quickly and I now have a literary agent who is seeking a cookbook deal for me.
My most popular dish is Kale and Apple Cake with Apple Icing. It is lower in sugar and fat and bright green. I’ve had many people all over the world make it and tell me how much they have enjoyed it.
I’ve found so many supportive and helpful virtual blog friends and I’m really looking forward to at last meeting them in person. Through their funny, touching and personal blog posts, I feel that I know them so well already.
My food hell is definitely a beige meal. I get very stressed if there isn’t something green on my plate. I’ve enjoyed watching the growing trend of baking with vegetables. When I started blogging just over two years ago, chocolate and beetroot cake was considered outlandish, but now it’s mainstream. People are getting more open to unusual veg cakes and I love walking into cafes and seeing cakes with vegetables.
My most-used kitchen gadget is definitely my Froothie high-speed blender. I used it at least once a day for smoothies, soups, sauces, flours…. The latest exciting addition to my kitchen is a Sage for Heston stand mixer. It is amazing quality and I get positively giddy when I turn it on. I made four cakes over the first weekend that I had it!
