Step 1. About This Blog & Me


I'm a Sydney based web designer who loves to bake. I live with my husband, ridiculously fluffy cat, and rickety electric oven. Sadly, husband and cat can not eat as much as I'd otherwise like to cook!

After admiring a bounty of beautiful foodie blogs for a while now, the creation of my friend Fiona's blog pushed me over the edge and I 'had' to start my own.

The name of this blog comes from one of my earliest food memories: my brother, cousins and I climbing the fence to pick mulberries from our neighbour's tree (she didn't mind - I promise!). We'd take them (with stained and sticky hands!), inside and nag our mother to make mulberry pie. She would always refuse (there was little she could do with only a handful of mulberries!), but the activity, something we had done ourselves, was so fun and exciting. The memory still makes me smile to this day (and want to pick mulberries!).

I love to bake and cook, and this blog is really to document this, hopefully disasters avoided (or omitted!), so let's see how I go!


  1. Hi there! So glad that I inspired you to setup a foodie blog! I'm sure you'll have loads of fun and (like me) never run out of things to write about! Looking forward to reading about your adventures! :o)

  2. Your blog (and cat) is sooo cute!! I'm just starting to learn to love cooking and trying new recipes. I'll definitley be using your blog as a reference :)


    I've added you to my links page. Hope that's ok :)
