“I like baking at home as I like try new ways of making favourites a bit healthier and just as tasty. Ie. sweet potato brownies etc. I also like cooking foods from far flung places. Those recipes tend to use unique spices and lots of veg for extra flavour. Instead of the traditional restaurant foods that tend to be heavy with butter or cream.”
