Hi, I'm Mimikins. Welcome to my space - time for you to kick up your feet and relax. I was an avid follower of the Barefoot Contessa back in the ol' days. When I saw her newest book tour dates I realised my small fantasy of meeting her could come alive and that's when I decided to devote my spare time to cooking her recipes in my effort to master her calmness in the kitchen. That led me on to far bigger and better things and now I love my kitchen - it is my small (beautiful smelling but sometimes messy..ok, mostly messy) escape from the real world. We all need one! ..but most importantly I love being able to share a home cooked meal with my hunnie.. (corny, I know, but true). He is the world's best taste tester and he always does the dishes - how does a girl get so lucky?!:) I love calling New York and my tiny apartment - home. It doesn't get better than this. I do however miss all that extra legroom it refuses to offer and did I mention closet space?! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find something you can take away from this site and if not ..(siGh) hey, atleast we can be friends. XoXo..
