I LOVE cooking from scratch, which means I spend a lot of me evenings in the kitchen.

My kitchen, unsurprisingly, is part of an actual house, which is on one of the main roads in Birmingham. I live near the park and access to the town centre is easy – it's a decent location.

I use it in the kitchen, on the hob, on the surfaces and around all of our appliances. Anyone who has seen me cook knows that I can go from a relatively clean kitchen to one that is covered in crumbs in a matter of moments.
