The Cosy Kitchen Diary


Recipes, Tales & Tips from a little Greenhorn



Our Greenhorn is a little princess who by the time she grew up didn't know anything about cooking, cleaning or properly looking after herself. On her road to self-reliance and independence she came across some weird but quick and easy recipes, some real handy & practical tips and made a few interesting discoveries which she all wrote down in her little Cosy Kitchen Diary.
