Hello & Welcome!
My name is Lynn. I am a mum of three, we live near Manchester and we also have a great deal of animals living with us. We are a close family and recently my eldest sister moved in with us and we now have a busy, bustling home full of fun and there’s always something going on – it’s fab and definitely helps to keep me young and on my toes!
We are definitely a family of ‘foodies’. I recall the first time I heard that word and I thought – what on Earth is that?! I have now grown to really like the label and we really love being foodies.
We moved into a home with a larder a few years ago and it wasn’t until last Spring or so that we decided to finally start using it. We initially just stored some dusty old wine bottles down there but now we have huge load of food! Breads, cheeses, whisky, olives, dates, nuts, seeds and so on and forth. If you’re ever near Stockport, please let us know and we’ll happily feed you sometime! We love having company.
We thought it might be a great idea to start a food journal / general journal that we can look back on but also just really enjoy writing in and spreading around the internet to try and meet other fellow foodies – in the area might be exceptionally nice! Our locals aren’t quite as into food as we are and I have to say that a lot of pubs and bars in the area serve good, but pretty plain food. We would love to learn more Middle Eastern recipes, that would be really great!
We are currently exploring the culinary delights of Africa – lots and lots to choose from there! We are also planning a trip soon so we will be sharing our ideas and recipes from our travels – please do stay tuned!
Just to list a few foods that we really love and would appreciate any recipes with these included:
- Chick peas
- Beans of any kind
- Basmati rice
- Dark chocolate
- Rose flavoured anything
- Strawberry and lemon jam
- Fried veggies
- Coconut anything
- All kinds of herbs and spices
- Mint leaves
- Cheeses of all kinds
