I’m Nickki. Wife. Mother. Home cook and baker.
Lover of real butter.
I am constantly thinking about food. When I’m eating breakfast, I’m already thinking about what to have for dinner.
I have a slight cookbook addition. I currently own around 160. Sometimes I don’t end up making any of the recipes – but I still read them for the food writing and photography.
I’ve been interested in cooking and baking since I was very little, but I didn’t really do very much of it until 2002 when very sadly, my first child was born sleeping. I developed a brief but overwhelming phobia of leaving the house (which thankfully I got over with counselling/support from family) and desperate for something to keep my mind occupied, I baked my way through How to be a domestic goddess by Nigella Lawson. I made jars of vanilla sugar, a malibu spiked coconut cake, buttery Viennese whirls, a zesty lemon syrup loaf cake and chocolate cake. LOTS of chocolate cakes. I found baking in particular incredibly therapeutic and I loved seeing my family and friends enjoy my baking – it felt good!
I won The Highland bake off (a local version of GBBO!) in 2015
