It was a chance meeting at the ice rink that brought your two authors together: SJ was celebrating her 28th birthday (shut up, ice-skating is a completely legitimate grown-up birthday activity) and Katie was a friend’s platonic date. Through a series of awkward friend-dates, they discovered a mutual love of Camp Rock, eating and synchronised swimming. Friendship and, subsequently, blogging was born.
We both enjoy cake.

S-J (aka ‘the one with specs’) works as a high school teacher and lives in the leafy suburbs with her excellent partner, Esther and their 1 year old son.
She enjoys cooking all the things, playing with the baby, reading comics (Marvel forever, yo) and eating breakfast at the various cafes near her home.
Her favourite cookbook is “How to be a Domestic Goddess”. She’s predictable. Sue her.
Katie (aka ‘the one married to Thor’) works as an office administrator and general task-master for a fertility specialist.
She has worked as a professional baker, decorator and cook but her favourite cooking memories are with the New Fat Ladies.
She enjoys knitting, watching television and Chris Hemsworth.
Her favourite cookbook is “The Joy of Cooking”.
Thanks to Esther for the magnificent photos.
