About The Accidental Chef
The Accidental Chef is the personal cookbook of JPLongland, that’s me! It’s full of recipes I love to cook when I love to cook them. Sometimes it’s a recipe I’ve adapted from elsewhere (you’ll see a note next to them with a link to my inspiration), mainly though, it’s all about helping you eat well for less.
desserts + sweet treats
Who doesn’t love a dessert? From ice cream to brownies, to cinnamon buns. Here is where you can find the latest sweet recipes, a gorgeous after dinner treat, or a pre-dinner treat, this is a judgement free zone.
Recently Updated Recipes
Sometimes I go back to tweak old recipes, update the nutritional information or to link to a helpful resource. Often this selection of recipes will probably be the same as the most recent recipes, but in the name of helping you eat well for less, I’ll keep this here so you don’t miss a thing.
Throughout this food blogging journey, I’ve fallen in love with photographing food and my DSLR. I’ve become obsessed with learning everything I can in a fairly short amount of time, from some fantastic teachers.
I’m available to hire for all your food photography needs. Get in touch to discuss your project.
