Hi, I’m Hannah. I’m 18, disabled, and love cooking and developing recipes!
I started this blog to share my recipes and tips for saving time and energy in the kitchen. This is important to me because I love to cook, but am often too tired to follow a long recipe. Plus, many parents and students find themselves too busy to cook from scratch as often as they’d like. I’d also like to try to raise awareness about chronic illnesses and disability, especially in young people.
I do have several dietary restrictions and cannot eat most fruits and vegetables, so I try to eat plenty of those I can have, as well as fresh herbs and spices or any other sources of vitamins I can think of. This does influence my style of cooking as I eat fewer veggies, with more protein and carbs to substitute. I aim to eat a decently healthy diet without being too strict – I still enjoy plenty of treats! While I eat plenty of meat, I do often cook vegetarian meals for myself and my family.
While I usually prefer cooking savoury foods to baking, I often also bake for friends or family. Therefore, any recipes I use there that are deemed a success will likely find their way here, so watch out for those! After all, no matter how good savoury is, everyone needs a little bit of sweetness!
I also post cooking tips and tricks, as well as how-tos and informational food posts. For example, posts on hot lunches to pack in a thermos, how to cook faster without wasting energy, and what to eat when you don’t have the time or energy to actually cook. The last one is very useful as I’ve reverted to eating frozen chicken nuggets and chips far too many times!
If you have a suggestion for how to improve a recipe, or if one hasn’t worked and you’d like to know why then please comment on that post to let me know what’s happened. I’ll do my best to get back to you with a solution quickly. If there are any dishes you’d like to see a recipe for then feel free to let me know here! Comments letting me know you enjoyed a recipe are also always welcome too, of course.
