Sorry For What I Said When I Was Hungry…

But not for what I’ll say when I am not! It’s Friday afternoon, my eyes keep drifting outside instead of being glued to my computer screen, my limbs are aching to walk my body outside into the sun, and my mind is racing with recipes and foods I want to savour! The weekend is here, so finally time to go all out again, not think about cooking time restrictions, and just go where my taste buds take me. I attended an amazing food event yesterday, and now my head and hands are brimming with inspiration and the gusto to get cooking! Maybe go low and slow tomorrow for some pulled pork, and then a delectable club toast with the leftovers? Or maybe a red cabbage salad with shreds of Danish Blue and some slices of smoked duck breast? Keep the kids entertained by whisking up a batch of lemon madeleines? Or maybe a pickled watermelon salad with Asian style ribs to round out the weekend…. Am I the only one who’s salivating? Time to get cooking!

Twitter Tasting – Bruichladdig

Life is all about firsts, better try something new and fall flat on your face than not to try anything at all. I try to live by these words, and so last Thursday evening, I went out on a limb and joined in a Twitter Tasting of Bruichladdich’s Limited Edition 10 Collection, ie the Bruichladdich Laddie Ten, Octomore 10 and the Port Charlotte 10. Pushed way out of my comfort zone, it was an amazing way to push my boundaries on a number of levels, not only when it came down to the actual tasting and iscovering notes and hints, but also in regards to my photography. Photography has slowly evolved into a love of mine ever since I started this blog, but food photography has always remained a bit elusive (hence the lack of food posts on this blog, despite my huge love for cooking and food).  Capturing that golden hue of the liquid, reminiscent of it’s barley core, or highlighting it’s pure Hebrid heritage and Scottish origin was imperative to me, so I …

What’s cooking this weekend?

Confession: I absolutely love to cook! I may not have mentioned it before (blame my lack of self confidence and food photography skills…), but I genuinely go cuckoo over food. Crazy as I am, I actually get excited when thinking about what to make for dinner, tweaking recipes, discovering new things, flavours, cuisines,  and when my head goes into overdrive, there’s nothing quite like some time in the kitchen to calm me down (and have a delish dinner to boot). The weekend is my time to cut loose, experiment and take my time in the kitchen. No hustling up dinners in 20 mins because the kids are too tired; no being too tired to be slicing and dicing, just me, my hands, my taste buds and a delicous array of gorgeous produce. Here’s a little round up of what tickled my taste buds this week and what I cannot wait to give a try this weekend!

Inspiration Sunday

Time to about things differently this Sunday. Instead of focusing on a certain detail, a certain style or a certain room, how about I show you the real smorgasboard of inspiration that caught my eye this week? Food styling or a certain dishes that made me salivate just by looking at them, gorgeous tiles, images that set my wanderlust alight, cosy sweater season must haves and the most gorgeous Fall fashion colour scheme. Sundays are for dreaming….   Pics via Pinterest and Tumblr.
