I am Tim, from New Zealand.
I have occasionally visited food forums over the past years and am a bit of a food freak. I love cooking and eating in general. My partner has recently been transfered from Auckland, NZ to New York, NY and has started a 'life in NY' blog. The food passion is something we have shared, so I decided it was time to start a food blog, as a way of keeping in touch with my partner in NY, and with the world. So hello!
Outside of my food related interests, I am an avid gardener.
I work - mostly from home as a mediator and an investigator (harassment disputes and that sort of thing) and find that gardening, cooking and eating is a great way of escaping of the drama of working with people's problems.
My online name comes from the name of one of my blogs - www.homeinagrove.com
. Which is about life in our 1880's miners cottage and the surrounding garden.
Thanks to TexanFrench for her fab fruit bread recipe, and to the rest of you for welcoming me to your foodie community.
