Hi and welcome to my site! I’m Debbie - the Pixel Chef – a freelance photographer, media creative and lover of food, walking, yoga and cycling.
On the Pixel Chef Blog you’ll find lots of my photos along with recipes for cooking up digital manipulations. You'll also find real recipes - with more photos - to help you cook up a storm in the kitchen!
From 2020 I am also offering support to artists, small businesses and community to help them with their online presence - from setting up a Blog or website to help with social media. If you have a project that you would like help with then please get in touch!
I must go down to the sea again!
Here is a little photo story from last week! We finally made it to the beach and got to swim in the sea! It was one of those lovely, warm, late summer days that feel like a real bonus – particularly in these dark COVID days. Our go-to beach of choice has always been Wells,…
Blueberry and banana cake

Pearl barley and feta bake
OK – I’m back with a vengeance with lots of recipes, photos and photoshopping ideas! Today I thought I’d hop on the meat-free Monday train with this lovely vegetarian twist on the frittata packed full of green goodness and tangy cheese. Pearl barley has enjoyed a bit of a renaissance of late and is now…
That was January
My poor Blog has been very neglected over the past few months. We had so much going on here that I sort of lost my way and my Blogging mojo. However 2016 is well and truly here and I’m planning to get back into the swing of things again. So as a bit of a…

The year is flying by and May was certainly a busy month… On my morning walks I saw buzzards, a heron, swallows and swifts and heard a cuckoo (walking in Cuckoo Lane). My son came back…
