A pair of nutters who like to cook
We are a pair of nutters, who like to cook. This occasionally ends in something either very interesting, very good or very amusing. There are never any promises that the end results will be pretty, and on the times that we forget to set the timer for the oven, we aren't even going to promise that it's not asking for chipped tooth if you take a bite. But at least we enjoyed doing it.

We pay homage to our patron Goddess:

Anoia, Goddess of Things That Stick In Drawers.*

(*This is often but not uniquely, a ladle, but sometimes a metal spatula or, rarely, a mechanical egg-whisk that nobody in the house admits to ever buying. The desperate, mad rattling and cries of "How can it close on the damn thing but not open with it? Who bought this? Do we ever use it?" is as praise unto Anoia. She also eats corkscrews.)

Our interests include:

Goofing off in the kitchen
Throwing teacups at people
Setting off the smoke alarm
Banging about in cupboards
-----And most importantly,
Not burning the house down
