Hmmm, my interests, well, I have many, so here are a few: I love cooking, drawing (especially Manga), maths (but I'm NOT a geek, promise!), gadgets (ok, so maybe I am a bit), music, singing, photography, crafts, poetry, writing short stories, card games, and looking after my dog. From time to time a may post a couple photos that I've taken, some pictures of my dog or maybe some drawings. When I'm older, I really hope to become a TV advert designer (fingers crossed).
I usually test my food on any willing subjects, which tends to by my mother, brother, visiting friends and family and any neighbours who happen to be floating about.
For quite a while I have been thinking about starting a cooking blog after following Diamonds For Dessert and Smitten Kitchen, but I only recently decided to 'just do it' and start one myself. I guess I chose the name as a kind of pun, because, although I don't actually cook 'bare', my middle name is Bear, and I don't like to use those ridiculous ingredients that you see in those posh cooking books and cost a fortune and are impossible to find, I just prefer to use the stuff that's easy to find and cheap (the BARE essentials you might say). Ok I'll admit it, it is a terrible pun, but it was all I could think of, so it will have to do!
The next post will actually be a recipe, not just me rambling (though there may be some of that too, so be warned), I hope you like it! :)
