Welcome to Broken Hill

I started blogging at the end of 2018 under the name I Cooked That: Honest Cooking for Living when I was living in Sydney and Canberra. It was about sharing a bit of my cooking life. I was focused on cooking seasonal foods, making foods from scratch, learning more about kitchen gardens and growing fruit and vegetables. However, by March 2020, I’d moved to Broken Hill, a town in far west New South Wales, and A Home in the Outback was born. I was seven months pregnant, we’d purchased our first home and I was excited about creating a garden and experiencing life in the outback. We were embarking on a new adventure in more ways than one!

I love learning and communicating through media. I have more than 10 years professional experience working in communication and media. But I’m stepping back from my paid work to enter a new type of work: being a mum and creating a home in the outback.

P.S. Oh did I mention…we also have two curly coated retrievers (Rosie and Busby) joining us on this journey
