Favourite Colours: Purple & Green Couscous Salad

“What’s your favourite colour?” is one of those questions which, along with classics like “What do you want to be when you grow up?”, adults don’t get asked much. Which is a shame, because I’m pretty sure that most adults would have a more interesting answer than your average six-year-old. While once upon a time I would have said “pink” simply because that’s what every little girl is expected to say, today my answer would be far more considered. Read more…

Ladies who lunch (and blog about it): Chickpea Sauté with Greek Yogurt Sauce

Chickpea Sauté with Greek Yogurt Sauce

Apologies for the crickets around here lately; I’ve been busy with some other stuff that’s left cooking (not to mention blogging about cooking) a little low on my priority list.

More Med: Baked Feta and Tomatoes with Parsley Hearthbread

baked feta with bread

A recipe for foil-baked feta has been making the internet rounds in the past few weeks. Originally published in Olive magazine, I first saw it at The Kitchn, and later on one of my favourite home and design blogs, At Home At Home. Of course, from the moment I first saw the ingredients in this recipe, I knew I just had to make it. Read more…
