Hello! We are Hayley and Lydia two sisters who love to talk about food. Follow us on instagram @scrumptious_sacketts.
My passion for food really came when I first moved out, even though our parents had brought us up showing us how to cook, it was the first time I really had to use it to survive! I hate following instructions, I like to use them more as a base on which to build on, I very rarely use exact measurements and just go by taste.
Three years ago I took up running and I guess you could say I caught the bug- I absolutely love it. I exercise most days, and especially when training for an event I really see food as fuel and notice how important it is to listen to your body and the best foods to eat for this. So look out for some healthy but my no means boring recipes!
Being a Graphic Designer and an all round creative person, how the food looks is just as important as how it tastes, I am one of those people who will take numerous photos of my food until I get the perfect shot. Follow me on Instagram hayleysackett1 for plenty of #foodporn!
I have been surrounded by food my whole life, food has always been a big part of our family- we were all born to eat! Some of my earliest memories are of food, from Hayley and I helping our Mum every Monday night cook Spaghetti Bolognese to vividly dreaming as a child about strawberry and ice cream banquets. I even remember planning what I would eat when I was older and living on my own, that my Mum would never let us have- I think eating vast amounts of chocolate bars was high on my priority list.
I am one of those people though who can eat anything at anytime of the day. I particularly enjoy cake and puddings for breakfast. A genius diet plan of mine was to instead have a pudding for breakfast instead of after the main meal the night before. Nothing beats a cold apple crumble with custard first thing in the morning.
Luckily all my friends and family are also big on food and we all like to try out new restaurants and get ridiculously excited when we found out about a new tasty ingredient or shop that supplies everything we need for our next food adventure. I also have a slight problem with buying cookery books, I just can’t help myself.
I have wanted to start a food blog for a few years now, in fact, really I would like to quit my job, travel the world and become a professional blogger, but for now, this will do me fine.
