Domestic goddess!

I am ashamed to admit that cooking really never use to be my thing! I wish it was - I admire women like Julia Child, Martha Steward and, of course, the very lovely Nigella Lawson!  They are so feminine and I love how able they are in the kitchen. "Able in the kitchen"...well, that is not exactly me!  Its not due to a lack of interest though! I really tried being a good cook and I really tried enjoying it too but after some serious mishaps like a bubbling chocolate cake (too much baking powder) and Salmon pasta that tasted like cat food, I kind of got disheartened. Lately however, with an appreciative "guinny pig" like Chris, who would really eat anything I dish up, the "foodie" in me has been awakened....again! I catch myself paging through recipy books and visiting food blogs....and I kind of like it! With a domestic muse who recently came to visit, together with these photographs by the very amazing Beatrice Peltre, I have been inspired to spend some time in the kitchen....









....even if its just to take such beautiful photographs of my cullinary creations!!!

Sadly I am not the cooking or baking type a girl. I do however love heating up some Woolies food in the microwave, but apparently that doesn't count as cooking ;)
