After well over a year of quiet, spring seems like as good a time as any to come back to writing and posting on my website. It has been a long break and I feel ready to create and post on this space again. I had thought about a redesign of the site and other changes but in the end decided that what was most important was to simply get posting again and sharing some of my creative energy and inspiration.
The last year has been one of health challenges and many different dietary changes, which at times left me feeling unsure and uninspired in the kitchen. I was unable to use ingredients I had long relied on in my pantry and couldn’t make many of the staple recipes I cooked on a regular basis.
The positive side is that these changes opened up an opportunity to try new ingredients and ways of cooking I had not previously explored, to embrace fruits and vegetables to the fullest, and to find some new favourite foods. More than ever food and cooking have become about nourishing myself and those around me.
