Hi, I’m Marie …
…and I’m the recipe developer, cook, photographer, and author behind Sugar Salt Magic. I’m also mum to 3 amazing fur babies and wife to the most amazing man in the world. Life is good. I love food and creating easy (mainly sweet) recipes that I can share with you. I’d love you to join along in my journey so sit back, relax and have a look around for some yum that you can feed your friends and family with.
My love of food comes from wanting to feed people. I’m especially fond of home-baking (aka desserts) and any kind of share food – you know, something you can throw in the middle of the table so everyone can dive in. Pretty sure my love of this style of food is purely down to the fact that if I can have a little bit of everything, I won’t get food envy 🙂 I love the interactivity of sharing a meal.
Because of that food philosophy, you will see lots of tapas style dishes, appetisers and finger food – all things that work well when entertaining but can work equally as well for a hearty family meal.
Desserts are my favourite thing to create, so I’m very lucky to have a lot of very willling taste testers among my friends and family (and a gym membership).
How it all began:
Ok, so I had this craaazy idea….. start a food blog. Sounds simple enough, right? I love food and cooking. I love being creative, and 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 found them so 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 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.
… and now
Now I have my little part of the virtual world to share my creations with you. Please have a look around and check out some of my easy recipes.
