This is me.  I love to cook and I love to eat.  I am always thinking about food, reading about it and talking about it!  My friends often ask what I’m cooking – usually looking for inspiration. I think in this busy world we live in we are all looking for tasty food that doesn’t require a zillion ingredients or use every pan you own!  I have a son, Ross, who is at university, and I am married to Graeme who is giving me time off (for good behaviour) to go to Ballymaloe Cookery School for 12 weeks to begin a real culinary adventure!  I’ve started this blog so that everyone will be able to see what I’m up to while I’m there.  I’ll also be writing about the food I cook at home.  I’m new to blogging and also to food photography which is not as easy as you might think!  I will try to make my food look as good as it (hopefully!) tastes.

A huge thank you to my friend Fiona for the photo.

  5. Hello! I got so engrossed in your blog I forgot how I landed here – Scotch Broth, thats it! (I just rewound google a few pages) So yes, I was wondering how to cook some dried broth mixture and landed on your broth post. Nice to see you aren’t an overnight soaker either! I love your other blog posts and shall be following along. Also probably way off beam here, but you sound Scottish? We seem to have a way of writing like we talk, so I just wondered, ha! Anyway, hi, and I look forward to reading more.

  6. I stumbled upon your blog while searching for ways to cook a ham hock in an Aga. Your blog didn’t give me the answer but I enjoyed reading some of your posts in the meantime. I see your last post was a few months ago; I do hope this doesn’t mean you’ve stopped blogging.
