Creative cooking with winter veg

We may be seeing signs of Spring, outdoors and in stores, but the majority of seasonal farm shop veg is still rooted (ha, see what I did there??) in winter. It’s so easy to get stuck in the same old, same old supermarket sweep of veg which we generally boil, or sometimes roast, if we’re … Continue reading

Maintaining yourself

How well do you look after your car? Well, the law in the UK at least, states that you must obtain an annual MOT certificate, to prove your car is road-worthy. You’ll also get regular services, every 6-12 months. On top of that, it’s likely that you get it looked at whenever you hear an … Continue reading

Our first paleo pop up restaurant!

A few weeks ago I held what I believe was Scotland’s first paleo pop up! It was definitely Dundee’s first. I wanted to share my experience in planning and preparing for the event, and how it went on the night 🙂 I’ve thought for a long while that a pop up would be a great … Continue reading

I’ve become a lover of farmers markets over the last year or so. I love having a good nose around … Continue reading

Today I ate cake

Yes. I confess. It happened. Cake-gate. Not even gluten free or dairy free. Just a big slab of good old fashioned carrot cake. This doesn’t happen often, and I’m usually comfortable enough to let this once-in-a-while event happen without too much guilt. After all, tomorrow is another day. I was reflecting on the cake-gate incident … Continue reading

Portuguese delights!

We got back a few days ago from a week in Portugal. Our first family holiday abroad together, and it was just lovely. It’ll come as no surprise to you that food featured strongly during our week away, but it might come as a surprise that we chose to go ‘all inclusive’ – having three … Continue reading
