Yummy Lummy the food blog if you work full-time and live alone?
Yummy Lummy is about cooking meals for one. I want to inspire you to cook simple meals with flavour and fun. I started Yummy Lummy to help me help you.
People working full-time and living alone
Some of us think about food all the time, other’s not so much. Lately, the recipes have been weekend creations but one day I hope to start a series under the category of weeknight cooking soon.
Yummy Lummy is a food blog about my relationship with food. I know that sounds corny and it’s become cliché after so many reality TV cooking shows. I’ll do my best not to use the word ‘journey’ or ‘hero’ Sometimes I cook more than one person can eat (or more correctly, should eat). That’s what leftovers are for Especially if you can use it the next day for lunch at work. Feel free to send me cooking ideas.
As I get older
My history with food has had its ups and downs. As I get older I’m learning more about food and more about me. The blog includes recipes, some restaurant reviews (I’m sorry these are on the decline but I’m saving money for holidays) and my fondness for photographing my meals. Feel free to send me food photography advice.
I’ve regained an interest in photography as a hobby. I used to photograph clinical diabetic lower limb lesions as a member of the diabetic foot team at the Royal Darwin Hospital. I use a Nikon DSLR and a Sony α7ii mirrorless for most of my photography (apart from my iPhone of course).
Most of the cooking recipes are designed, to be meals for one (plus leftovers for reheating and enjoying later). If you live alone and work full-time, I hope this blog meets your needs
I’ve created a Facebook group called Cooking meals for one. You’re all welcome to join. I’ve decided to make it a secret group because of some trolling behaviour. Click on the link and I’ll see your request to join. If you want to ‘friend‘ me on Facebook please do so and I can add you to the group that way too. The aim is to get people to share ideas, recipes, blog posts and thoughts on living alone and cooking meals for one. The rules are simple. No spam, unless it’s the delicious stuff in a tin that is popular in Hawaii. I don’t mind links to blog posts, all I ask is that you close the preview. Photographs of food are encouraged. Sharing recipes and tips is very encouraged. If I get a sense there is conflict or trouble I will act to resolve the problem.
How many blogs do I need?

I’ve also started a Podcast named The Medical Fun Facts Podcast. Please visit and have a listen. Subscribe to Medical Fun Facts and I’ll be grateful!
While you’re visiting Dr Gary Lum, you’ll find out more about me too apart from my interest in food.
Yummy Lummy has a YouTube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/c/YummyLummyBlog
The early videos are pretty cringeworthy, but the later ones incorporate two cameras and even some music. I’d love it if you stopped by and liked a few videos and I’d love you more if you subscribed to the YouTube channel too.
