Julie Beaver's Profile

About

I grew up in Australia in a small house with my parents and two sisters. One of my fondest memories was hearing my mother's baking pans going into the oven as I fell asleep at night. My mum worked full time when women didn't really work full time. At night Mum would be baking, canning, sewing, knitting, ironing and any other tasks she would have done during the day. Mum's home made cookies were always part of our packed lunch... how special that was and we didn't even really know it at the time. Our friends did though, as our house was a good place to have a snack after school because of the home made cookies in the tins…
Almost everything mum made was from scratch and to this day I am continually inspired by her example. Perhaps this why I love to bake late into the night.... And into the early hours of morning when everyone is asleep.
