About The Recipe Gatherer

Hello there! Welcome to my blog. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my favourite recipes as much as I do.

My name is Jessie and I live on my family’s farm on the Darling Downs in Queensland, Australia. I am married and we have a baby daughter, Cora, born in March 2016. We also have a toy poodle, called Maggie, who is very frustrated at Cora’s lack of interest in playing fetch . I am a registered nurse but not working at the moment. I had the fortune of having my mother home all the time when my two sisters and I were growing up and I would like to provide the same for Cora, for as long as possible.

I love all things food related; baking, cooking, reading and eating! I have so many recipe books yet my collection will never be complete. I am always on the lookout for new recipes or techniques. This blog is a good way for me to actually try out some of the recipes that I have, as well as sharing a bit about my journey into Motherhood, and life on the farm.
