Anne is a passionate home cook who loves to create lots of mess but hates the washing up afterwards! Don’t we all?

Anne loves to try out new recipes and ingredients, with a bargain hunter mindset at the core but with the occasional treat as life would be pretty dull otherwise.


Anne’s blog, called Anne’s Kitchen is a collection of her successes, and failures, whilst learning to cook over the past few years.
