I had a bit of a realisation last week. The nature of chronic illness does, rightfully so, equate to a bucket load of resting. Resting physically is one thing but resting one's mind is another matter entirely and I've always been pretty damn atrocious at the latter. My daily thought cycle goes a little something … Continue reading Why is it not OK to just relax?
Jeez Louise I love this dish. There's a real misconception that risotto is difficult to make and that's so far from the truth. The only thing you need to ensure is that your rice or pearl barley maintains some bite and all that involves is tasting as you go along which translates to: more food … Continue reading Butternut Squash Pearl Barley Risotto with Crispy Kale

I was all, "I need vegetables and I need them now and I need them not to be coated in anything," and I became very erratic and just started pulling items … Continue reading Spicy Winter Stew
The notion (that word right there is proof that I live with an Irishman) that a vegan diet is cheaper than that of a consumer of meat and dairy is voiced both by vegans themselves and sort of assumed by many an omnivore.
