Potato Salad with Warm Vegetables & Herb Dressing

Real summer food is decorated with summer flowers. I got to spend some time with my sister recently, the first chance we’d had for some proper twin time in months. So, I took her to my new favourite place. In the city centre, near the water front there are now four little gardens all next to each other. A science garden, healing garden, literary garden and an edible garden. This is all part of an incredible project happening in Dundee right now, Dundee Urban Orchard.

Spinach & Butter Bean Salad with Mint & Dill

It doesn?t feel quite like June yet. The weather can?t seem to make up its mind at all. We had a few really warm, gorgeous days full of sunshine and then June Gloom set in, the heavens opened and it constantly rained (which I don?t actually mind at all). This has left me craving warm, comforting turmeric lattes one day and then fresh, raw salads the next. It?s a good mix but sometimes a little confusing. I do feel myself being drawn to making lots of summer vibing read more

Red Cabbage & Asparagus with a Caesar Style Salad

It feels like it has been quite a while since I last posted something on here. It’s only been just over a week but I felt like I had gotten into a routine of creating and sharing with you on a very regular basis and I was enjoying it.

I?m an introvert, a highly sensitive person and that means I need time to re-charge quite often. Being an introvert, for me, means that even if I adore the people I?m read more

Warm Tamari & Lime Potato Bowl with a Tangy Tahini Drizzle

My love for salads is eternal and it upsets me that they?ve endured quite a bad reputation. Limp, lifeless, bland. So sad. Salads should be vibrant, colourful, flavourful and awesome. This one encompasses all of these things (in my opinion). Something that is getting me ridiculously excited about future salads is the window boxes that Steven is currently assembling for me, he loves a DIY project. I can?t wait to grow my own fresh herbs! So far on my ?to grow? list read more

Ginger & Lime Slaw

I am so happy that the mornings are starting to get a little brighter now. It makes me want to get up and get going straight away. For some reason it really does feel much easier to be more productive when the sun is shining. Pottering about the kitchen in the morning is one of my favourite ways to start the day. It feels so good to be creating straight out of bed, whether it?s a nice big breakfast or if it?s preparing something for later in the day or week. This morning it was read more
