Easy midweek cooking

Here’s an easy midweek supper recipe! Or after a heavy weekend where you have perhaps over indulged in the food department with a traditional roast dinner and warming dessert why not go for a light, easy Monday meal? Last week I posted about having a Meatless Monday Vegetable Casserole, which got lots of interest so I decided…

Learn a new skill!

Calling everyone who has ever wanted to learn to crochet! One of the reasons crochet is so appealing is because of the endless possibilities to create something beautiful with a simple hook and some yarn or thread! Add to that all the stitch pattern variations that can be combined with different yarns and colours and you have opened up a…

Stress-Free Saturday

Tantalising Tuesday

Today is Tantalising Tuesday! I have come across a new mantra, a good one I think. Travel much, eat well. I was going to bring you another recipe but I’ve decided instead to ‘torment’ you with some foodie pics from my recent trip to California. One of our first stops was at The Grove and…

Meatless Monday Vegetable Casserole

I’m no flexitarian, vegetarian, pescitarian, vegan or whatever but I do try to eat well. I enjoy food a lot (especially bacon) but something I try to do is go meat free at least once or twice a week. It makes sense for lots of reasons and has many health benefits. Some of the benefits…

If you type the word into a search engine you will find something like this (standard travel book stuff): “California, is a western U.S. state, it stretches from the Mexican border along…

Home grown tomatoes and responsive cooking.

If there’s one thing my other half can grow it’s tomatoes (and runner beans) but today I am talking tomatoes. It is not unusual to find his homegrown tomatoes in unusual places in his efforts to get them to redden. I’ll never forget the day a few years ago when I was still working in…

An Afternoon of Cakes and Baking

Where has summer gone? Hasn’t it just flown by? There’s a slight nip in the air and a feeling of freshness creeping into the evenings and early mornings.  It’s been a fabulous year even though it has tried to sneak past us without us noticing. Before we know where we are it will be the…
