About

simple things montage

This blog started life in 2007. We’d not long moved into our first house together a short drive from Derby, UK and still had the diet of our student days. Our tiny cottage kitchen meant we had to teach ourselves to how to cook food from scratch. No more freezer and ready meals to rely on. The blog was our way of documenting our recipes and life in the cottage.

One house move and a baby later the blog has evolved to include our attempts at gardening, holidays, lifestyle and life with a little one in tow; usually served with a big slab of cake. We’re lovers of simple things in life.

The Baker (Jules) – Me, the main author of the blog.

The Butcher (Hubs) – An engineer who always loves a challenge.

Little Baker (LB or L) – Our daughter born summer 2014. She already has an impressive foodie history and loves nothing more than being in the kitchen.
