She is.… Claire. I’ve been writing about food in my original corner of the internet as GoodEggFoodie, for some years now. I decided that 2017 was going to be my year for change, so I’ve rebuild the site and rebranded to create She Eats. I will always be the ‘good egg’ but it felt like the right time to change.
She eats… anything and everything! I love to eat in, I love to eat out. I love to buy food and drink from producers who are doing exciting, tasty things.
She drinks…not enough alcohol! Not been drinking for nearly two years. I miss it (it doesn’t agree with some medication) but it means I am always on the hunt for a great mocktail or cordial.
She bakes… I love to bake, especially brownies. I have kept most of my existing recipes and will be adding lots more too. I run the Bolton and Wigan branch of the Clandestine Cake Club. The first rule of cake club is to eat lots of cake, so it is well worth looking at your local group if you love to bake.
She travels…far and wide! I love a good staycation (North Wales is my happy place), but god knows I can eat my way around anywhere from Greece to India. From a quick weekend R&R break to a three week long haul, give me the world and I will find the best food while I am there.
She learns…bread is my Achilles heel, but I keep trying. I love to listen to people who make, bake and create- I am fascinated by the infinite talent out there.
She won’t… make, eat, photograph anything prefixed with unicorns or mermaids. That just makes me mad…so much food colouring is not going to give you tasty food people *exasperated eye roll*. Equally I won’t ever be over-curating my Instagram feed- I think there are too many identikit food feeds out there and I like to keep it
She is the cats mother… my husband said people would react to the ‘she’ in my new name with this. But that’s ok because I am indeed mum to two cats: Fred and Ginger. They even have their own Instagram!
So, that’s me and this is SHE EATS. I hope you enjoy it and visit often. Let me know what you think about the site, what you’d like to see and maybe we can have a slice of cake and a natter one day!
Love & cake,
