Discover why some recipes never grow old

Welcome. I’m Libby.

Libby from Cooking with Nana Ling

This recipe blog, Cooking with Nana Ling, is a place where I celebrate the food my family has always enjoyed – slices, cakes, sponges, puddings, cordials, easy dinners and so much more.

Read more about me here.

I re-create and share the many wonderful recipes my great grandmother, Nana Ling, wrote by hand during the 1930’s and 1940’s.

I also cook up other desserts and dishes that my grandmother, mum and aunties have cooked over the years.
