A little bit about me

I have  a partner and I am a  mother. I love to visit new countries. I like long walks in the country, swimming, snorkelling but am afraid of big fish…
Oolong is my favorite tea. I make great soup. Wish I was more artistic. Can never remember names but have got better at remembering birthdays. I believe in angels and loved the martini’s made by my late father-in-law.


  • Love the blog…. keep the soup recipes coming – I can use them in the pub!

  • thanks for the pasta soup recipe! i’ll try it out soon xxx

  • Made the Cauli and Almond soup again for friends on Friday evening. Everyone loved it – highly recommend it. Thanks Pam

  • Hi Pam,

    I’ve just stumbled onto your blog and think it’s great! I’m writing to see if you’d be interested in a reciprocal link between our sites:

    we are the number one local food website in The UK & Ireland. We promote local producers and regional food, Farmers markets, regional recipes and specialities, as well as local food restaurants.

    We are also working with The Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST), CPRE and the British Food Trust to encourage producers to use high animal welfare and environmental methods and to support British producers. An addition to this we list award winning producers free of charge on the site

    We have had a fantastic response from the food writing community and would be very grateful if you also worked with us in helping to support local food by placing one of our badges on your Blog. The following page contains a link to three different sizes of badges just to give you an idea of their size: http://www.localfoodadvisor.com/Newsletter.aspx. We will of course provide a reciprocal link to your blog on our site.

    Please come back to me with your thoughts on our site, we are very keen to work closely with the community to maintain a good quality site Thank you in advance for taking the time to look at our site, and considering placing one of our badges on your blog.

    Wiil come back soon.. to hear more soup recipes from you..

    Greeting from Indonesia.

  • definitely going to try the ricotta recipe so i can make those quiches… lovely!

  • your property seems like a picture from a fable. It must be lovely to live there.I have been wanting to have a property for growing my own food. My husband and I have been doing much research on permaculture and can’t wait to put our knowledge to work. I wish I had your piece of land. I live on the water and even though it is a beautiful setting, my gardening is all done in pots. Is there a place that is just perfect? Water in front of you with a huge garden in the back and mountains as a background, with streams crossing your property. Yeah that would be a perfect setting. Anyway, going back to the subject, love your property.

    • Thanks, it takes quite a lot of our time at the moment hence the lack of blogging but it is so good to have our own fruit and vegetables.
      We are also growing a lot of things in pots too, potatoes, carrots, lettuce, herbs and now this year peaches.
      I am experimenting with butterbeans and mung beans in pots.
      Permaculture is one of the ideas I would like to put into practice, have a great book which gives an overview on the idea.
      I am with you on the property, water in front and mountains at the back with the odd stream running through, ok now I’m dreaming!
      I am still making your recipe for ricotta every week. I just love cooking with it, so versatile.

  • Brilliant, idyllic garden, I will be back ..Maggie (Oz)

  • Haven’t seen u in a while. Hope all is well, I miss your posts

  • So glad to hear that. x
