    About Me
    Baking and Making Food

    Welcome! My name is Sandy and this is my new blog which is aimed at all the food lovers out there. I live with my wonderful family in Perth, Australia. When I was working full-time, I just didn't have time to make any food. I would make things in the microwave or order takeaway. However, after I had to take some time off due to stress, I decided to start working part-time. I also decided to learn how to cook and bake. I find making food very relaxing and my mother-in-law has taught me how to make some fantastic dishes.
