Birthdays, Paris and Chicken…

Well now, it has become apparent that I have been neglecting my blog lately. In fairness this time I have an excuse, I swear! I feel almost incomplete when I don’t tap away at my computer or write notes in my food journal after making a new or favourite dish. But I have of late,…

In the spirit of Christmas…

It is amazing how time is passing me by. One minute it’s halloween and the next it’s nearing the end of November and it’s time to get my act together and start ‘Operation Christmas’. This year I am absolutely determined to be ultra organised and under control. There will of course be a certain amount…

Back to basics!

While talking over a couple of beers and some red wine on Saturday night, I had a flutter of renewed energy about my blog. I always have thoughts and energy to cook and write but I feel I may have strayed off course as of late. I know the basics of cooking. But the idea…

So my dad sent me a text request for a veg based soup with spinach. Most of the time I just throw soups together with whatever is left in the fridge. I have a few soups that I don’t mess with and funnily enough spinach soup is one of them. So I finished work and…

Cookie dough overload!

Spaghetti and cookies

Now that halloween is safely behind us (until next year that is), I can come out of hiding. For someone who loves Christmas as much as I do, I am surprised that I don’t get into the full joys of halloween too. As all kids do, I used to dress up, usually as a cat…
