Hello & welcome! I’m Sal, and I’m really excited to share my quick and easy, healthy recipes with you. It’s important to me that my recipes are doable for the every day cook. Simple cooking that looks great, and most important of all – TASTES AMAZING!
I grew up in Zimbabwe (southern Africa) and lived there my whole life apart from a few years here and there travelling and living in different places. I’m thankful for such a simple start in life, and for all the memories I have of a true African childhood.
I recently made a huge change by moving to the Dolphin Coast, Durban, South Africa. So far it has been quite an adventure, there have been some challenging days – not to mention the humidity – my hair has never been so curly! It’s a fresh start & I love living right by the sea. I get to walk on the beach most evenings. Everything is new and exciting and I can’t wait to see where life takes me….
I love travel and little getaways, as well as trying out local coffee shops, so I’ll be sharing these adventures with you occasionally.
I really LOVE food! I grew up eating a lot of fruit and vegetables and as a result, I still crave healthy, nutritious food. I started cooking when I was about 12, and ever since then I have turned to cooking as an escape. I’m not sure what it is, but the process of creating delicious things in the kitchen brings me peace. I’m passionate about recipes that I can and DO actually make in my every day life…I really enjoy making vegetarian meals and sugar free desserts, but occasionally I’ll share a really indulgent recipe. You can read my post on how I overcame constant headaches & fatigue by changing my diet here.
My other passions include photography, interior design, yoga, chocolate of any kind, and my sweet 7 year old Spaniel, Louie!
Thanks for visiting! Stick around a while and keep coming back, you’ll always be welcome!
