Would you like your kitchen life to be a bit happier and healthier? Then you’ve come to the right place. I am Claire and I love food. Well I do now.
Until I was two years old I would eat just about anything. When I turned two, according to mum I shut my mouth and my list of acceptable foods shrank to the following: chicken (breast only), carrot, beans, cabbage, broccoli, steamed rice, potatoes, bread, cheese slices, vegemite and dry cereal. That is pretty much what I ate for almost 15 years.
In 2010, on a trip to Europe with my now husband Will, I discovered the world of food. Since then I will try anything and absolutely love everything to do with food from growing it, creating it and sourcing it to cooking it, serving it, eating it and photographing it.
I started my food blog – Claire K Creations – as a way to share my love of food with others and now it has developed into a place where I share all my food (and a little bit of general living) tips, tricks and recipes to make your food life happier and healthier.
I’ve always thought I was pretty healthy, but in early 2013 after trying for our first baby for what seemed like an eternity with no luck, I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. The only medical option was taking medication so I decided to try the natural route first.
I had a total overhaul of my lifestyle and food and 3 years later, I have two happy, healthy little boys.
I want to help you make your life healthier and happier too.
I have to admit that I can be very lazy – plus with two kids 19 months apart, I don’t have a lot of spare time. If there’s an easy way to do something with the same result I’ll take it.
I’m not one to spend hours slaving over a recipe so you’ll mostly find quick and reasonably easy, wholesome recipes with the odd trickier recipe thrown in if it’s really worth the effort. I’m not all about weird and whacky superfoods though so don’t worry – nearly all the ingredients you will see here, you can get at the supermarket.
A little bit about me – I live with my husband Will and our sons Ollie and Cooper in a house in sunny Brisbane, Australia. Our place is in a great spot. There’s a farmer’s market within walking distance on a Sunday and lots of restaurants and shops very close by – it’s a foodie’s heaven.
I can’t wait to help you make your kitchen life happier and healthier (you can start with dinner and download my free eBook below).
If you’d like to contact me I’d love to hear from you. Share a recipe, tell me about some wonderful food you’ve tasted, ask a question (no question is off limits!), or just say hi.
