food to glow

feel good food that's good for you

I know it sounds a bit gloomy to pop ‘summer’s end’ into the title, but it does seem appropriate. September is nigh, and unless you are of a southern hemisphere persuasion, autumn is here in all but name. I may be a bit of a weirdo but I quite like autumn. I like its colours, …

There are some people who don’t like leftovers. That may even be you. It is sometimes me: as I am not a teen-aged boy I  don’t understand the appeal of leftover pizza. But leftovers make sense. Make enough at one meal to do for another: whether chilled and eaten the next day, or wrapped, labelled …

You’ll be relieved to know that today’s post is a quickie, both in the writing and the recipe. Tomorrow Miss R, Mr A, my lovely in-laws and I are headed to Barcelona for a week. And I have done nothing in preparation. I don’t even know where my summer clothes are (I am still wearing …

I’m afraid this is a bit of a cheat. Our three-day week – thanks to lovely Kate (err, Katherine) and William – has got me feeling a bit lazy, so this will be a quick post. Not only is it a quickie, it’s borrowing from my last post – Wild Garlic Pesto Risotto. In that …

I had a phone call from my lovely Dad the other day. Amongst other things, we had a nice chat about how for once my weather is better than his (thunderstorms/tornadoes on the Florida Gulf coast and unseasonably sunny weather in Edinburgh). But he couldn’t help being blunt about something that needed bringing to my …
