Hi and welcome to my blog!
My name is Linda, but you can call me Linno.
It’s a nickname I've had since I was young.

I was cute back then.

I've been cooking since I was a kid, spending many hours in the kitchen with my mum. My mum and dad are from Switzerland. Fun fact: they first met in a bakery that my mum worked at. So yeah having a sweet tooth can have many benefits.

Aww I love my folks.

They married then moved to New Zealand in the 1970s, and it's where I was born. I continue to live in New Zealand and am now married to a rad guy from India.

He has an epic beard

We've done a bit of travel and have lived on both islands of New Zealand. We've lived in a manner of houses from an 1800s brick home to a tiny forestry cabin. We love the great outdoors and appreciate all the amazing things that NZ has to offer. We love to live simple, and are down-to earth.

So as you can see my influences are a mixed bag, so you'll see quite a wide range of recipes on my blog. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do. I want to share them becuase I want to show that cooking can be fun, accessible and achievable. If I can do it, so can you. And it's good for the brain to learn new things!

I'd love to hear your feedback or answer any questions, so feel free to leave me comments or email me. I'm not a chef (just a capable home cook) so feel free to leave me any tips or suggestions also. Thanks for stopping by!
