About EsmeSalon

You may wonder who am I, so I will share one or two tidbits about myself and my blog

Hello and welcome. My name is Esmé

Thank you for stopping by EsmeSalon and looking what’s up in my corner of the Blogosphere.

I grew up loving to bake and cook as I watched my Mom so lovingly prepare meal after meal for the family and all our friends.

I live in Vancouver, Canada, for the past 20+ years, but originally from a then small village called Somerset West, just outside of Cape Town, in South Africa.

How did this blog come about?

Over the last number of years, I have been pouring my heart and soul into my blog, first The Recipe Hunter (Cook and Enjoy) and now I have upgraded to EsmeSalon.

As already mentioned, I love baking and cooking, but more and more I have started to venture into different areas of blogging as I love to Share, Care & Inspire.

You will find the following features on the blog and I wish to invite you all to come and participate and share your stories at EsmeSalon.

  1. Senior Salon, a weekly Link Up Party starting each Monday at 2am PST through to Friday evening at 8pm PST with a roundup post at 9pm PST.
  2. Sharing, Inspiring, Promoting Bloggers aka SIPB on Facebook
  3. Guest Post
  4. Bloggers Interviews
  5. Obviously, we still will have all those yummy tried and tested home-made recipes.

Other than blogging, I love to embroider my own gift cards.  This is a method where you prick a pattern on a 3-fold card and then embroider it with different colors to form a beautiful picture.  I have done 100’s and maybe even a 1,000 already and just enjoy it tremendously. I use this as gifts, as it is more personal than going out to buy a gift that just get tossed in a drawer and never to be seen again.

I’d love to hear from you my fellow bloggers and readers. Tell me what hobbies you enjoy and spend time doing.

Please leave me your stories, comments and let’s get to know each other.
