The weather is cold in January in the UK so for me it is still all about comfort food.  Eating lettuce in January seems wrong and it isn’t in season anyway, bring on the comfort cookies, big bowls of steaming hot food and gut busting puddings… Read more

Aside from all the Samhain goodies that will give us all a sugar overdose, foods for this season make me think of big hearty casseroles, home baked bread and stick to your rib puddings. Here are a few of my favourite bakes… Read more

I may well be standing in the garden wearing my PJs at 3am waiting for Eric (the dog) to do his business.  But it has also allowed me to connect with the moon phase, the stars and the energy of the air around me at a time of night I would not normally see.  In the ‘still of the night’ (musos should be singing now) and it has been very magical. Read more
