Amazing Asparagus & Recipes. Just to say that it’s been a very dark and sad week in the UK this week, with the horrific and mindless killing of very young, teenage and older families In Manchester. My five Grandchildren range from 6 years old up to almost 18 years old, and they bring me so […]
Maybe it’s because I’ve been spending hours, every day, digging and sowing and watering in my Kitchen Garden recently – but planting all those tiny, vulnerable vegetable plants has really given me A Taste of Spring.
Guess what Comfort Food Recipes 2015 is all about? Not necessarily all about giving up sugar or eating strange-sounding grains or drinking smoothies that look like mashed up soggy grass like nearly all the foodie mags are telling us to do right now!

Those word, “All Clear”, mean a lot. To me, my family, grandchildren and friends. But especially to me. It was another trip to the hospital yesterday, to hear the result of my second small operation.

Another colourful, tasty and healthy side dish to eat with such as chicken kebabs, herbed chicken, lamb chops or even eat just on its own as a quick lunch. This Beetroot Slaw Recipe is low in fat and only has 1g of sugar, so is right up there at the top in this year’s thinking […]
I’m sure Erik and myself are not alone in hearing all the dire warnings of a. Eating too much b. Not exercising enough c. Eating too much sugar and d. Eating too much red meat. But I think that as you get a bit older, appetites can change. Right at this moment in time, on […]
