About Me


I’m Harriet, and I love food. Of all types! This blog is mainly aimed at busy people, who struggle to find time in their lives for cooking and end up all too often getting a take away or a ready meal. I like simple, quick food which is low in effort and high in flavour.

But that’s not to say I don’t like to branch out every now and then, so you’ll find some complex or time-consuming dishes here too if you fancy a challenge.

Mostly, my aim is to share with you recipes I think you’ll enjoy – so if you have any ideas please do get in touch!

Interested in working with me? Please feel free to drop me an email through the contact form; I’m interested in any brands with a good ethos and wonderful flavour!

This blog has evolved from my old blog, www.harrietscooking.blogspot.co.uk, which is why the earlier posts are all dated the same day.
