Hello! I was excited when my step-mum asked me to join Recipezaar. I've wanted to for quite a while! I'm a Kiwi through and through, and live near the beach in Auckland. My name I ended up with came from a deep and meaningful discussion with my family : ). In the end after playing around for a bit (and having a lot of fun!) I settled on MisChef-Maker. It'll be fun living up to the name too! I'm practicing painting full-time in the hopes of soon selling my work, and becoming a full-time artist (although I don't have an art degree of any sort).
