Well hello there, welcome to ‘tales of a recipe junkie’.  Come in, make yourself at home and allow me to explain a little of what I plan for this here space.
Okay, so where do I start?  This little spot has been a long time in the making.  I’ve dreamt of a space where I could share stories and my passion for all things food, and finally, after trying my hand at other things, it’s becoming a reality.  I guess coming from a long line of passionate foodies it was only natural that I would have this desire to share my love of food, it’s in my blood after all, part of my dna.

For as long as I can remember I have collected recipes.  From magazines, newspapers, books, friends and family.  I used to keep my collection in scrapbooks, drawers, boxes and folders and my book shelves used to groan under the weight of the  cookbook addiction I had.  I kid you not!  These days my Pinterest boards are bursting at the seams with inspiration of recipes I want to try and I’m also much more selective of the cookbooks I buy.  The only problem I have is that there are not enough hours in a day.  That said, I do cook every chance I get and thankfully, due to having such a large family, when I do cook up a storm I have no end of willing guinea pigs participants eager to sample my wares.  It’s a win/win all round.

My aim is for ‘tales of a recipe junkie’ to be a platform where I can weave my stories and memories into the food I cook and hopefully inspire you in the way that I have been inspired by foodies and cooks over the years.  Let the magic begin!
So tell me, do you enjoy to cook?  What’s your signature dish? I’m curious to know.
