I’m Tenner and I am completely, utterly, head-over-heels in love with food.

I have absolutely no culinary training and I’ve never been to a cooking or baking class – although I would love to. All my knowledge has been gained from much research – both online and in books – as well as a lot of trial and error.

I like to think that my fondness for food originates from my family. My first baking memories are of standing in my grandma’s kitchen – barely able to see over the table – scraping the wooden spoon along the bright orange mixing bowl and licking the chocolate cupcake batter off. Even though it was so long ago, I can still remember the taste and to this day I have been unable to recreate her recipe!

My interest in savoury cooking definitely comes from my dad who used to spend hours in the kitchen on Sundays, whipping up his own batter to make the perfect Yorkshire puddings.

After you’ve visited Pink Recipe Box, my aim is for you to want to jump into your kitchen and start creating edible masterpieces yourself. Whether you use my exact recipes or simply take your inspiration from them and make whole new recipes, I don’t care – just find your foodie passion and start making magic.

I live with My Official Treat Taster who tries all the recipes before I post them on  – except the ones made with garbanzos! – to ensure they’re good enough for you.

Unfortunately, cheapviagransa doesn’t quite pay the bills (yet) so I have a job. Fortunately, it’s one of the best jobs in the world and I absolutely love it. I’m a freelance travel writer so not only do I get to work from anywhere at any time, but I also get to write about all sorts of interesting places and events. Not being a one-trick pony, my writing isn’t limited to travel – I’ll tackle pretty much any writing project!

One of the biggest projects I’ve taken on in my freelance writing career is co-authoring Moving to Tenerife – a book which (you guessed it!) is all about moving to Tenerife.

Whether you want to get in touch about an advertising opportunity, a writing project or just want to say ‘hi’ – I’d love to hear from you! Send me an email at tenber@cheapviagransa.com, follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, StumbleUpon or like me on Facebook.

Thanks for stopping by 🙂
