I’m LB and I love food.

Expect bananas.



Where to start?

So, the main reason I decided to start a food blog was as a career move. I wanted to boost my confidence, share my passion and improve myself. Plus, the fact I spent a generous amount of time leaving scathing reviews on TripAdvisor. (I’m joking…)

I work in communications and I’m passionate about content. So in order to continually develop my writing and have an additional creative outlet, I’m now blogging.

As well as a full time job, part time degree and attempting a social life. FUN. And what better subject to write about than the love of my life… food. (Sorry, Dan)

I live in County Durham with my boyfriend, god bless his soul. I cook, he puts the bins out. I love being in the kitchen, experimenting. I’ll try my hand at anything. Baking is probably my strongest skill. I make a cracking brownie, but I oddly don’t have much of a sweet tooth.

When I’m not slaving over a hot stove, you’ll find me curled up with a book, watching some serial killer documentary, drowning in my own wanderlust or gin’d up to the eyeballs. And now, writing a food blog!

Here, I’ll share recipes I’ve discovered or thrown together myself, review good (and the occasional bad) places to eat around the North East and just general foodie nattering.

I’d love if you could share your recipes, your favourite places to eat or, even, the results if you’ve gave one of my dishes a go. You can drop me a tweet over @ProperScrummy or head here to contact me regarding PR and featured posts.


Lots of love, LB x
