Wee Wooden Spoon is for my love of food and sharing my favorites with you.
The name Wee Wooden Spoon came about when I became obsessed with eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner with pretty long handled wooden spoons. I grew up in Scotland, United Kingdom where the word “wee” is said often so it has stuck with me since. I have also lived in London and USA. I have had my fair share of ultra-processed food in the UK. There are several aisles in the supermarket dedicated to microwave ready meals (TV dinners). It was so convenient to grab a cheap three minute meal and call it a day. The temptation of fast-food was also a constant threat. Those delicious meal deal offers seemed to always call my name. Whilst they are great in moderation I have since discovered they seriously lack fiber, and are loaded with salt and sugar.
Fast-forward some years I moved to Maryland, USA, and the area where I Iived in was considered a food desert. From this time, I began to pay more attention to healthy eating and took some nutritional science courses to better understand the principles of diet, health, and disease. I am currently cooking easy meals for fun from a little kitchen on the East Coast. I love looking for new healthy, budget friendly and tasty food inspiration.
Thank you for stopping by.
