Though I’m love, love, loving my new home, there are some things I’m missing about my old place. My neighbours for one thing (they were lovely), my gas stove (electric sucks) and my herb/vegetable garden.

Whilst packing up my kitchen a few weeks ago I came across a newspaper cutting with a recipe on it. Nothing unusual in this, except that the recipe was for a chocolate cake and I’m not that fond of chocolate cake. In fact, as I’ve said before, I’m not that bothered about cake at all. [...]

Not content with the knowledge that I could simply pop downtown and pick up another ready made meal, I decided that I [...]
