Hello, i'm Sophie.

I live in the beautiful town of Matlock on the edge of the Peak District in England. I live at the top of a very steep hill with my husband, our toddler and George, the very mad rescue dog.

I spend some of my time cooking for other people, in their own homes or at some of the fabulous holiday accommodation in the Peaks. Most of the time i'm cooking for my family. Despite our best efforts, our toddler is a vegetable dodger, so I spend my time working out how to sneak the good stuff on to his plate.

I love cooking grown up meals and feeding friends but it can be hard to prepare and cook something in the small period between toddler bedtime and friends arriving. So simple easy meals are my solution.

I started this blog to share the recipes that have worked best for me and my family. I hope you enjoy it!
