A return to Paleo and blogging




Spring has come round again, and here I am, over two years since I first started this blog, and over a year since my last post. I apologise to all my followers for letting the whole thing slide, but it has been a year full of changes for me, so I decided to take a break from blogging for a while. I am now living in West Sussex, in between the South Downs and the south coast of England. It's a lovely area, and I am going to enjoy exploring the foodie places nearby.

Since my last post, I fell off the Primal diet wagon big time for a while, but have now resolved to restart it as I know that my general health is better when I follow it. So keep an eye out for new recipes and experiments posted here :)

Paleo-ish Mulled Wine



Christmas is here! As far as I'm concerned, from the 1st of December I can definitely start cooking all things Christmassy. I also become obsessed with Christmas crafts - do you like the snowman bauble I made for my friends? I gave them one each as a little Yuletide gift, and they really liked it. Although what they probably enjoyed more is the fact that I made mulled wine for them! Here's my recipe for it (perfected over the years!).

Not your typical Spag Bolg!


It's not a very handsome picture is it? Definitely not my best photo... because I was just aching to taste the sauce, and not focusing on photography at all!

Recipe for National Egg Week



Do you like my little egg caddy? I love it, especially when it's full of hen's and duck's eggs, like today. 

Ode to Quinces



Last week, I had a paper bag full of quinces in my kitchen - what a treat! I discovered this magnificent fruit in a nearby farm one crsip Autumn day, about 2 years ago. I bought some because they smelt divine even though I had no idea what to do with them. Since then, I have cooked these beauties many times and I never tire of them.

Pulpetti (meat patties) baked in tomato sauce


Anyone who is familiar with Malta knows that pulpetti (meat or fish patties) are part of the local cuisine. I'm not a huge fan of fish, but I do like a meat patty. This is how my my mum used to cook meat patties - baked in tomato sauce - and they were one of my favourite dishes growing up.

Ideas for Strawberries



This post is a bit late, as strawberries are no longer in season (though you can still get some in supermarkets). At the peak of the season, I managed to get my hands on some lovely strawberries. Plump, red, juicy and sweet - they really did not need anything done to them, but sometimes I felt like adding something to them - sugar is normally a classic, but on a primal diet, that's out of the question, so I came up with a few more ideas.
