A Royal Wedding hangover

Well, hello there! Long time no see! Sigh. I know it’s been rather quiet here & what can I say? A lot of things actually but, the truth is that life just happened & I got swept away with all those things that I forgot to stop, take a deep breath & start again. Phew!

Something to munch on

Do you get those hunger pangs at 4.30-5 pm? Those crazy ones where you just, absolutely have to eat something? That would be me too.

Seafood, made homestyle!

One of the things that you realise as life goes by, another way of saying ‘as you grow up’, is that in times of comfort you always turn to the familiar. This could be a person, a blanket, a book or even food, like in this case, something that hugs you right back! I’ve experimented with a lot of seafood…

Food that touches your heart

Given the kind of stress-filled lives we live it’s so important to stop, take a breath, look around & lend a helping hand. Sometimes I feel that we are so blessed, that we are able to make a difference to the lives of others, it doesn’t always have to be with money, but small gestures go a long way too!…
