About the Scroungelady

At home with scrounge cat two and hospital bike

A former mass quantity institutional cook who has cooking in her blood.  She cooks and bakes at home now from scratch.  Her mantra is “no food wasted”.  Readers will learn how she uses bargain ingredients, leftovers, food scraps and various recipes (sometimes none at all) to feed herself and her husband.  Yes, she does have  foodservice training but doesn’t let that get in her way.  Other stuff she enjoys doing are gardening, riding motorcycles, painting and cat parenting.

  2. Just wanted to pop in dear Scroungelady, and wish you a very happy birthday! I hope that today is filled with good food, good music, and good friends! Am sending big hugs from NYC, Daisy (aka baconbiscuit212)

    • Much appreciated Daisy (though I do love the baconbiscuit212 name)! I enjoy reading your posts about food and scent and look forward to reading many more.

I previously worked as a news and sports photographer. Recently I have been enjoying wildlife photography. My approach toward bird photos is similar to sports photography. I attempt to capture mostly action and hopefully a unique perspective.
