A year of change

Wow, since my last post i managed to get a full-time permanant job and buy a house – so apologies galore for lack of content.

I now have a kitchen i am proud of…and space!!


New year and a bit of Moroccan spice

A new year, new start and so much to keep me going. And sorry I’ve been out of touch, busy, busy, busy.

Saw this photo on Pinterest (thanks to http://bit.ly/KFyYdX for the link) and it reminded me of a recently inspired dinner party we had – doesn’t it just conjure up the exotic?


Last weekend we hosted a friend to enjoy my Middle-Eastern cuisine feast. And it lasted 2 meals and then some. We had:
Halloumi cheese (no other cheese would suffice i promise)
Moroccan lamb meatballs with apricots and harisa/yoghurt dip
Marinated chicken skewers with coriander
Fragrant cous-cous with dried apple
Chickpea, pomegranate, mint and cumin salad…
…and some other delectable givings.

What thoughts and ideas do you conjure up when you think of middle-eastern cuisine?

Do share…

Sometimes cheese is the answer…

I love, love, love cheese – so what better then a few helpful sites to get your tastebuds motivated?

Here’s a few links to some great cheese-led sites and assocations:

Some UK based ones:

& one from my own country:
