There is no love sincerer than the love of food. ~ George Bernard Shaw

Welcome to baking = love.

Hi, I'm Nessie.  Yip, just like the loch-ness monster.

I'm an ex-lawyer / now doctor / wife / mom / home cook who is obsessed with baking, cooking, eating, food blogs and just about all things foodie.

Why "baking equals love"? 

Well, it's my motto for life.

Baking is my stress relief. I bake to show someone I appreciate them, or I'm thinking of them, or sometimes just coz.  A lot of love goes into baking and cooking.  It nourishes the soul and brings a little bit of sweetness life.

For me: food equals joy, eating equals bliss and baking equals love.

Home cooking is my fav

Home for me is little old New Zealand, the most beautiful place in the world, Godzone.

Baking from the heart

I haven't always been a foodie.

I've always loved eating but I was absolutely useless in the kitchen.  No, seriously I was B-A-D.  In home ec at school, I made a salty chocolate log.  Not in the trendy-fleur-de-sel-caramel kinda way but in the I-thought-the-salt-was-sugar kinda way.

Food is family. 

Those genes most probably came from my darling mother who, until recently, could burn water. 
It was my dad who was the family chef and when he was diagnosed with cancer, I made it my mission to learn as much as I could from him before he got too sick.  He passed away and passed on the role of family cook to me.



It's in his memory I cook, I bake, and I run a volunteer baking event called Baking for Hospice.
