As you may have already guessed, my name is Millie Mae. I am a Environmental Scientist, nutritionist, forest lover, surfer and plant-based ice cream maker, based on the Sunshine Coast, QLD, Australia.

Hello Millie Mae is the blog I created to remind you of the long-lost art of intertwining food and magic. Yes, magic can be done in the sacred space of your kitchen, with common yet potent ingredients and energies, you can create incredible recipes for magical purposes. Every natural ingredient, plants, herbs, flowers etc. has energy, and that energy has unique magical properties. Some are so common that you probably have them in your kitchen already, and the others are just as easy to find.

This isn’t anything new or woo-woo, in fact cooking and magic have long been included in rituals, traditions, ancient teachings, herbalism and folk healing for thousands of years, yet science is only just catching up now. With the industrial revolution and mainstream pharmaceuticals, the common knowledge of healing foods, magic and alchemy is gradually being lost.

I hope you enjoy the blog and its recipes, and are able to use them to bring magic into your kitchen, elevating the way you cook and prepare meals.

I’d also love to connect, so come say hello on InstagramFacebook, and Pinterest.

More About Me

My background is in research as a Environmental Science (B.Sc), and I am also a qualified Nutritionist (Adv.Dip. Nutr) – with a big passion for both. I have always loved recipes and cooking, but my career in food began in the jungle of South America. When I was in Ecuador, working on a climate change research project, I participated in a traditional chocolate making workshop – and I fell in love. I came home to Australian and was on the path to becoming a chocolate maker.

I spent the next five years learning everything I could about cocoa and building my own chocolate business. It was so magical. I met some amazing people in the industry and was lucky enough to travel to the cocoa farms in the Solomon Islands, helping certify the organic cocoa plantations. My chocolate passion took me to the USA, on a search to eat all the craft chocolate I could find and visit the artisan factories. With a stroke of serendipity (thanks to one of my favorite chocolate companies) I discovered a new, secondary love. And the next year saw me building Mooloo, my handcrafted, plant-based ice cream company.

I love the magic of crafting and creating meals with intention. I love the energies of ingredients and their unique properties. I adore anything artisan and small batch.

I decided to start this blog in 2021 to share my passion for magical food, the alchemy of cooking and photography (eventually, Id love to write a cookbook!). All the photos on the blog are taken by me (unless otherwise noted) with my little Canon M50.

Feel free to contact me through my contact form if you have any more questions or inquiries.

      Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it
      up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

      I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.
      Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers?

      I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    4. 👋Millie, one quick question.
      Is it a ‘requisite’ qualification to be a nutritionalist as a food blogger ?
      Appreciate your reply with thanks.

      • Hi Angelina,
        Absolutely not! I did the qualifications to learn more because I’m so passionate about food and nutrition. But anyone can have a food blog, if they have a love for it and something to share.
