Hi, I’m Alice, a digital copywriter based in Scotland Italy who one day decided that living on toasties and microwavable dinners was not a feasible long-term solution.

As I began experimenting in the kitchen, I started to write down the recipes for the things I made, but soon realized they were all over the place.

Skinny Spatula was born from my desire to have a home for all the recipes I try before I forget about them. I’m not what you would call a foodie, nor a health fanatic obsessed with quinoa and avocado, even though I am a Millennial.

I like to eat a balanced diet, so on this blog, you’ll find food that caters to all diets.

I also believe in food freedom, which is why you’ll find recipes ranging from low-calorie, healthy dishes to decadent treats and everything in between.

My recipes are always super down-to-earth and great if you’re a person on a real budget who wants to cook something that will definitely make you feel good.

Spoiler alert: I like Italian food a bit too much, so don’t be surprised if many of my recipes are personal takes on foods that originate from Italy. Because pasta is life, am I right? (Later edit — I love Italian food so much that I actually moved to Italy ????
