About me

Originally a Yorkshire lass, I am currently living in Edinburgh with my gorgeous husband Ben where I work as an accountancy lecturer.

I love to cook, and especially to bake – it’s the perfect antidote to a long day! I also love how much of a sociable thing making and eating food is and how it brings people together. I think I like making food for other people more than I like making it for just myself, and anyone that knows me will tell you I am a bit of a feeder!

Applepiezucchini was started as a way to make sure I made time to cook, as the temptation in my previous job (which had far too many late nights!) was just to make quick fixes and to treat cooking as a chore rather than a hobby and a passion. It’s grown faster than I thought it would, and I have been so pleasantly surprised by the people I have met and the lovely feedback I have received in the blogging community – every day I log on here inspires me to try something new!

Hope you find something you like!

  3. Hello lovely! This is my first visit to your blog and it’s such a pleasure to be able to read about your cooking adventures! I definitely understand the temptation to go with ‘quick fixes’ at the end of a long work day. I also work full-time but I’ve come to realize that cooking is my relaxation and ‘creative time’ at the end of the day.
