Hi There! Thanks for stopping by!
I currently reside in Portland, but am originally from Melbourne, Australia.
My blog reflects my philosophy on food – simple, flavourful, fresh & home cooked. Or in other words, food that isn’t shit.
I love simple, home cooked meals food that accentuate good quality fresh and flavourful ingredients that anyone can cook regardless of your ability.
My meals are (mostly) healthy, that highlight seasonal ingredients that are easy to find on supermarket shelves or at fresh food markets.
I love cooking with fresh, local and organic ingredients where possible, but am not impartial to whipping up some delicious, comfort meals at well!
A Little About Me
Originally from Australia, my husband, Adam, and I moved to Portland Oregon in February 2016. I am a high school Social Studies teacher, however found myself unable to work for the majority of 2016. I started a Healthy Food blog, while working towards getting my teaching license and found that I developed a love for cooking, writing and food photography.
In January 2017 I changed my blog focus, to an area I was most passionate about – cooking damn good food and the food I most loved.
I draw inspiration for my recipes from many different aspects of my life. I love to travel, which is a huge inspiration for my food. When I can’t travel, I find inspiration from researching different cuisines, other blogs, family, restaurants and my cravings for Australian food!
I hope to inspire people to understand that home cooking is simple, fun and can be achieved by anyone, while highlighting the use of fresh and flavourful ingredients!
So I hope you can find something here that you can enjoy – Georgie x x
