plants & herbs for a self-care reset

July 27, 2019

Feeling a deep need to reconnect with my stomach at the moment. When I let positive intention slip I begin stuffing her full to the point of pain. It’s not about weight loss or gain – I’m happy in my skin; it’s about manifesting a genuine love for myself where I only want to do what genuinely feels good. Although cheese, bread & wine do feel good 😬. Would love to know what people do for a self-care reset? Asking for…

Furbabies forever

July 25, 2019

Visiting friends, I’m reminded how much thought & attention some people give to caring for their canine companions, our furbabies who are completely reliant on us through no choice of their own. I love how much love people give to the animals in their lives. Our lovely friend Pauline has a pack of huskies and has also started baking treats for hounds as Hudson’s Garden. This is a great idea! When we went to visit she taught me how to…

Cooking on two rings

June 16, 2019

These days we’re vegetarian and I’m creating more vegan meals as the time rolls on. Only having…

New recipe lands tomorrow along with some thoughts on the slow food ethos that inspires these latest ideas. There’s a poetic piece on slow travel as well as a poem written to sum up my feelings on Brexit. After that I feel I cannot engage with the whole mess any longer. Along with all of this, an…

Sticky cauliflower buffalo ‘wings’

May 2, 2019

Ive been wanting to make sticky cauliflower buffalo ‘wings’ for ages – as yesterday was our anniversary it felt like a good day. This recipe is based on one found on Yup It’s Vegan – I’m loving the recipes on there and although I enjoy devising my own there are times I just want to follow a recipe, maybe slightly adapt it, and enjoy the results. This is delicious. I had to change a few ingredients just because we didn’t…

Foraging for tea

April 26, 2019

Last spring I spent time with one of my favorite plant people, Mark Watson (link to his blog here). It’s going to take years for some of the things he taught to fully permeate into my life and a huge part of this is taking it slow, learning to move with the cycles of the seasons; knowing that it’s ok to forget some things and then relearn them; to accept that this kind of learning is a lifetime’s work and…
