I started this blog in 2017 to serve as a creative outlet, combining my love of photography, graphic design and food styling with my insatiable appetite.
The recipes you find here are those that I have either created, been a part of creating, or those that I have enjoyed and in some way, made my own. My focus is not on clean eating, it’s not on comfort food, it’s not on desserts and it’s not on weeknight meals. Rather, it’s a little of everything. I enjoy salads and desserts equally – because life is all about balance.
I live in the gorgeous city of Brisbane, Australia, am a mother of two rowdy, but amazing little boys and married to a wonderful husband of ten years. We are busy, but live with simplicity and that’s why my focus has always been on dishes that are fun, delicious, and all completely doable in the home kitchen – because food doesn’t have to be complicated to be good. Whilst my dishes might sound ‘fancy’, their collective raison d’être is to prove that simple can be also deceptively lavish.
Food is so much more than sustenance. It brings people together; sharing, experiencing and creating memories. Cooking, if we allow it, can ground us. Even on days when I am beyond exhausted, you can find me pottering around in my kitchen because no matter how I feel, my biggest belief is that the experience of food is incredibly cathartic.
So thank you for stopping by, I am so excited to have you be a part of the Jaimie Eats community. I always love hearing from you and really appreciate it when you leave comments (I read every single one) or email me – it makes this whole blogging gig seem a little more ‘real’. Drop me an email at [email protected] – it’s really nice to get to know the people on the other side of my food adventures. The other side of my story.
