The delicious art of doing very little…

Alongside my Goat’s Cheese and Red Onion Tart, the other scrumbumptious snack I whipped up for Stephen’s Cheese and Wine night was my Mozarella, Sundried Tomato & Chorizo Pinwheels! A delicious treat that never fails to please, and is deceivingly easy…

Not only are these quick and easy to make, but they’re also incredibly easy to transport before cooking, as you’ll see, making them an ideal snack to take along to a friend’s do!

Cheese Night for Nepal’s Hero!

Back in July, my most loved friend Adele went away to Nepal to work as a community volunteer. Aside from a crackled Skype sesh and a delightful letter, I received very little contact while she was there, so in my own entirely selfish way I’m so happy that the work has ended and we finally have her home in England, with plenty of moving and inspiring stories to share with us all.

My focus primarily, as a rule, being on food, I have learned two things about Adele’s trip.

1. She has now graduated from Pescetarian to full blown Vegetarian

2. Cheese was unaccessible

What, therefore, would be the best way to welcome her home?

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me… And I’m eating food…

Happy New Year, everyone!

Apologies that it’s been so long since my last post. Anyone who has been following this from the off probably would’ve caught wind of my love of Christmas and may have been surprised not to see a big Christmas post in December, but there is an unfortunate and reasonable explanation to follow.

You may have noticed that I treat this blog very much like a diary, and I intend to keep up this level of honesty, be it good or bad news.

On December 10th, Josie left me. There’s no more information that anyone other than me or Josie need to know, but I was certainly shocked and saddened.

SO, moving forward, the face of this blog will now change to say the least! While the main focus will continue to remain on great love of food and family, I am no longer living in London as my parents have very kindly taken me in temporarily, in light of the above, while things are settled and sorted. There are also a number of surprises and what I’m sure will be exciting tales approaching, but for now I can say no more! Do stay tuned!

The honest accounts of goings on, and of course delicious recipes, will most certainly continue!
