Hi and welcome to my Kitchen Sanctuary!
I’m Nicky – a wife and mum of two, living in Cheshire in the UK.
A former Disaster Recovery Lead working in IT (I left in July 2014), I’m now concentrating on blogging, writing, juggling school runs, and keeping the wall of toys from invading every bit of carpet in the house.
I’m a firm believer in sitting the family down at the table as often as possible for a nice home cooked meal and a catch-up on the day. I generally cook quick and simple recipes during the week, saving the more complex or time consuming cooking (as well as a bit of baking) for the weekend.
I’m a bit of a food magazine and recipe book addict, so you’ll find some recipes on here that have caught my eye (I’ll always let you know the source) as well as lots of my own creations.
My favourite place is my kitchen, and although I’d like to say I bake my bread whilst being and coiffed and beautified you’re more likely to find me like this – covered in flour with hair scraped back! Just telling it as it is…
As well as making creations for Kitchen Sanctuary, I also do freelance writing and photography for other web/print publications and brands that I love.
I hope you enjoy the recipes and photos. Let me know what you think or if there’s anything you’d like to see on the blog!
