Ok, so I had this craaazy idea….. start a food blog. Sounds simple enough. I love food & cooking, I love being creative, I love photography and when I was younger I used to love writing. Do I have enough time? Ummm, sure. Anyway back to the food blog.
I have some favourite blogs that I follow and find them very inspiring and given all of the above, I wondered “Could this be for me?” I cook anyway….lots. I need a good excuse to practice my photography because, sadly, my beautiful, fancy DSLR rarely makes it out of its lonely case unless I’m going on holiday. I get lots of wonderful comments about my food. It all makes sense really. It’s like the next logical step.
I even had the perfect name AND the domain was available. Woohoo! And how did I come up with this awesome and perfect name, you ask? My gorgeous husband and I had a little competition with his family whereby each couple made a 3 course meal for the other 2 couples which were then scored in secret. We were first up and I decided we needed a name for our “restaurant”. We tried to come up with catchy names using the first letter of each of our first names and, hurrah! Salt & Magic was born. When it came to my blog, I had to include sugar because, well, dessert features largely in my life. Sugar, Salt & Magic it is, then.
While there is bound to be a huge amount of sweets, I also plan to include lots of savoury because, well, all food is good. Simple as that. I can only hope that I am able to inspire someone to get in the kitchen and test out some recipes. I can’t wait to start sharing all my favourite recipes with you and discovering more and more along the way. Enjoy!
