A New Chapter

Rob and I have moved several times over the years. Enough times to know that the old saying ‘home is where the heart is’ absolutely rings true. It’s not about the bricks and the mortar, the location, the size or…

In the Stillness of Time

I fear that I’ve been a bad blogger. In that, well, I haven’t actually blogged. For almost a whole month. I have been around, saying ‘hello’ on Twitter and on Facebook every now and then, but the door to my blog has stayed ajar – not closed, only ajar – just as I left it, with the light shining through, until I was ready to walk through it once again.

Raise Your Glasses to 2011

2010 really was the most incredible year for me. It’s seen me realise my dream of writing a cookbook and after several years of hard work I finally got to hold my very own published work in my hands. It doesn’t get better than that. You told me how much you enjoyed the book when you read it and cooked from it and that means the world to me. As I wrote it I thought of you, thinking of you curled up with it in bed or wrapped in a throw in a favourite chair on a cold winter’s day, and splattering it with batter as you cooked from it in your steamy kitchen.

Snow Days

Unless you’ve been underground with no access to television, newspapers or the internet for the past few weeks you don’t need me to tell you that the UK has been experiencing something of an ice age with snow and ice causing widespread disruption, some misery, but also, let’s be honest, lots of fun!

It’s a New Day, It’s a New Dawn

Well actually, it’s a new decade. Welcome to 2010! On New Year’s Eve I caught a little of the BBC’s run down of the last 10 years (at least, I think it was the BBC, things were getting a little…

Thanksgiving Thoughts

Thanks to this blog, Facebook and Twitter I have had the fortune of being able to communicate with so many wonderful people in America who, although we’ve never met, I consider my extended friends. It’s to all of you who I dedicate this post to and wish you the happiest of Thanksgivings.

Changing Seasons

Autumn seems more glorious than ever this year. Summer is lingering a little longer than usual, stopping to have a dance with autumn, leaves falling through bright, golden sunshine as they twirl together, before it leaves us for another year.
