So it's time to get my cooking blog started

My younger daughter, Lynn, sent me an email telling me that she was running out of ideas of what to cook for herself. Thousand miles away, like many other students who are studying overseas, she missed home-cooked food!

So what a mummy like me can do is most probably putting some simple cooking recipes on blog for you to refer from time to time.

This is the idea of starting this blog. No great recipes, but easy enough that everyone should be able to follow. The ingredients and preparation are kept as simple as possible so that time and effort used would be minimum.

Let's try and see whether this blog helps, Lynn !
