Hello and welcome to my blog – Herbs & Flour! My name is Cathy and I created this blog in 2019 as a way to document my recipes as well as share those recipes with the world. I should let you know that I am more than a little food obsessed! I love to eat but I especially love being the one cooking and baking up a storm in the kitchen! My goal for this blog is to share simple, wholesome recipes that are approachable and easily replicated in your kitchen! I try to cook from scratch as much as I can and healthy meals are my goal- 80% of the time! The other 20% is where I get to indulge a bit! Life is about balance and that is definitely reflected in the food I share with the world!
Cooking has been something I have been drawn to since I was a little girl. When I was barely tall enough to see over the counter, I would love to watch my mom create our meals and wanted to help her in the kitchen every chance I got. I was always in awe of her ability to whip up meals without so much as a glance at a recipe. It still amazes me that she can bake up cookies without measuring the flour! I don’t know that I will ever reach her level, but I like to think that I have inherited some of her skills in the kitchen!
I grew up in a Greek home and you will definitely see dishes inspired by my Mediterranean roots on this site. Many of the traditional Greek recipes on this blog are inspired by the food my mom cooks in her own kitchen and which I have continued to create in my own.
While my background is Greek, I was born and raised in Toronto, a city that embraces cultures from all over the world. My whole life I have had the fortune of experiencing cuisines from many countries through the diverse people and restaurants in this gorgeous city of mine! Browsing my site, you will see diverse dishes inspired by those flavours! There is a little bit of everything on this blog because that is exactly what I cook in my kitchen!
Cooking is about having fun and there are so many ingredients and cooking methods to keep mealtimes fresh and interesting! I hope to have a regular supply of new recipes to share with you and that you get as much joy out of making the dishes you find here as I do!
With lots of love,
