I’m a 30-something woman experimenting with taste, texture and general noms.
I’m enjoying making up new recipes and putting my own spin on some old ones. The Dragon and I enjoy at least one night a week of trying something new and different, and we decided to share some of them with you. This blog is basically my online recipe book which the Dragon and I are compiling for our little family, and are sharing with you all. I tend to have food on my mind a lot….so I’m always thinking of flavour combinations and things I’d love to try. I also get inspired from eating out at cafes and restaurants. My usual process is to start with either inspiration or what my own instincts tell me. Next I add some research and I come up with my own recipe based on my ideas, experiences and the results of my research. Then I make it and post it here to inspire you to try things yourself.
I gained the name Bunny when trying to do Samantha from Bewitched’s nose wiggle. The Dragon loved it and thought it looked just like a bunny nose. So has called me a bunny ever since. Turns out I can get out of most kinds of trouble now just by wiggling my nose – handy! He got his name from his lifelong love of the fire breathing beasts. In reality he is about as far from the scaled, fire breathing type that there is. We were recently married, and the wedding preps stalled our kitchen creativity temporarily, but we are back again and loving it.
Please use my recipes as a starting point for negotiations for your OWN recipes. I usually try to include some potential spins/ideas to change it up and make it your own. But if you are not comfortable/confident in doing that yet, feel free to follow them to a tee.
Recently I’ve been including nutritional pannels for my recipes. Please use these as an estimate only. I calculate them using an online recipe nutrition calculator, so they may not always be 100% accurate. Feel free to calculate your own based on the ingredients/brands you use to ensure a more accurate count. A lot of my earlier recipes don’t yet have these panels, I am going adding them as I re-use recipes, so hopefully I will get to all of them in time!
I hope that you find this site fun and interesting, but most of all I hope that it inspires you to try new and different ideas in your own kitchen.
