Best ever Guacamole

I love avocados! I love their texture, their smell, their taste and their colour. I just love them. When I was pregnant, the only thing I wanted to eat in the first few months was an avocado with cottage cheese and salt and pepper. And now for some unexplained reason, I am just craving them…

The weekend treat

Yesterday on the way home from a run on the pier with the dog, we were passing the bus stop outside the deli shop. As we were passing a man was unwrapping his newly acquired breakfast roll with great delight. Suddenly he dropped it. Luckily it landed on its wrapping paper so it would be…

The humble potato

I spent most of the last week silently contemplating what is going on in my life these days and of our recent loss. I miss my daughter every minute of every day. I had so many plans for us, like making little pink cupcakes for her daddy on days like Valentines days which now don’t…

The basics: Pancakes

It’s pancake Tuesday, yay! For the second year running, I have actually remembered that it is pancake Tuesday on the right day. Usually I am either early or very late to the party. I am keeping it very simple today. We are going back to the basics again and just sharing our simple and easy…

Sticky gingerbread

I have acquired a fair few cookbooks over the years. I also threw out a lot, which I now realise was a big big mistake. Many of my books have been gifts, many I have bought and some I have borrowed from the library and forgotten to give back (ooops). But one or two books…

The basics : Pastry

Where to start… These days, well for the next little while, I am let’s face it, a lady of leisure. I don’t have to set the alarm to get up in the morning, I don’t have to do anything or see anyone if I don’t want to and I don’t have to go into work….

Butterflies and yellow roses!

This is one of those blogs that has taken several attempts to write. I like to think this blog very much represents me and as you read it, you can hear my voice and imagine the person behind it. For the last year, kitchen feasts has been a public insight into my life. From writing…

lazy lunch

Ok, truth time! Despite the fact that I am on leave from work and pretty much have nothing to do all day, I still didn’t have time to prepare a proper lunch. Honestly I don’t know how this happened. I should be spending my days thinking of food and making meals like a good little…
