Hi There! It’s nice to meet you!
I’m Georgie – blogger, recipe developer, photographer, teacher, wife, wine and chocolate lover. I believe that everything in life is made better with food, coffee is an essential part of the day, and that there is no such thing as too many kitchen gadgets.
I currently reside in Portland, with my husband Adam and golden retriever Archie, but am originally from Melbourne, Australia.
Nothing makes me happier than being in the kitchen, whipping up something delicious for my family and friends to enjoy. Food has the ability to bring people together in the best way possible, which I why I am here to spread my passion and love for cooking with you.
Cooking should be enjoyed, it should be easy and it should bring people together with love and laughter, which is why The Home Cook’s Kitchen is all about recipes for easy entertaining.
THCK is home cooking at its best. I love cooking simple recipes that accentuate good quality fresh and flavourful ingredients that don’t skimp out on flavour.
My meals are (mostly) healthy, and highlight seasonal ingredients that are easy to find on supermarket shelves or at fresh food markets. I pride myself in making easy recipes that take the stress out of cooking, and love to give tips about cooking and kitchen organization.
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 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 want to spread my passion and joy of food, and show you that food is able to bring people together in the best possible way. Whether that’s through a beautiful comfort meal, a healthy salad, a great homemade ice cream, a big bowl of fries or a cheeky cocktail or two!
So I hope you can find something here that you can enjoy – Georgie x x
