I’m Lisa, I’m 31. I am a disabled mum of three little girls, Katrina (11), Collette (9) and Abbi (8). Not forgetting my partners (known as the giant man-baby) son, Josh (8). I live in Nottingham, in beautiful sunny *cough* England! I suffer with Psoriatic arthritis (PSA) and have had it since I was approx. 13 years old. Daily life is a struggle with the constant pain, fatigue and of course, stiff and fused unusable joints all over my body.
Due to this, I do not work and often find myself bored. I needed a hobby and fast! I do love photography as a hobby that I have done for years but my disability now somewhat restricts that. But I do enjoy cooking main meals (when the children don’t cock their noses up at my wonderful ‘creations’) but wanted to broaden my horizons by baking up some yummy mummy desert treats. I’m an amateur at this still. Oh so amateur-ish! So, I’m not just cooking up a treat, I’ll often be found ‘cocking’ up a treat too! But ah well, practise makes perfect eh?
So, here you will see the good, the bad, and the downright ugly, heh! Follow along if you will, the more the merrier and join in with the fun and the mess found in my kitchen after. Oh, and while you’re here, grab that dish cloth and help me tidy up that ‘batter splatter’ will you? Ta muchly!
I’m using a Kenwood Chef Titanium food processor/mixer which I recently purchased and have used a lot! It is fantastic. I love that it is a mixer with the usual whisk, dough hook, K-beater and a flexible beater (which scrapes the sides of the bowl as it beats) as well as a food processor which fits on top, and also has a liquidiser which also fits on top. I’m lusting after the ice cream and mincer attachments too and also an additional mixer, namely thee amazing *drum roll* KitchenAid Artisan in Empire Red. Mmmm, purdy!
