2017 Year End

I'm really no good at keeping blogs up-to-date. I've just checked and my last post was in May (!), how terribly disappointing. Since then, I've submitted my PhD thesis, and started a new job. I am hoping that I will have a little bit more time for living now that I don't have a PhD to write. However, according to my Instagram, I've mentioned something about resurrecting the blog in mid-November. I need to get better at this, mostly for my sake, so that I can actually refer back to my recipes for when my memory fails me. I would appreciate any tips, and all that...

In the meantime, here is a photo dump containing my favourite eats (i.e. things I've made far too many times than is necessary/healthy) this year:

Thank you everyone for your patience, kindness and shared passion for home cooking! I'm looking forward to sharing more good food with you in the new year. I wish you all the very best for 2018!
