What’s Taken So Long?

The new blog!It has been a very, very long time. So where have I been? Why the hiatus?

I graduated in the summer and (luckily) found myself a job! Up until then I had never fully realised just how difficult it is to cook in the little free-time left after work. Not to mention the fact that here in the UK we pretty much live in darkness during the winter months, which subsequently means decent lighting for photographing anything cooked becomes non-existent.

However the new job and lack of lighting weren’t the only reasons for a break. I’ve been working on something new. I wanted to create a new blog, one that was more me. I wanted a whole new look. With recipes old as well as new, life musings and travel snaps. But the process has been lengthy, and the effort lacklustre on my part.

An amazing friend of my brother who just happens to be a web-developer, has kindly volunteered to help make the new space look as fantastic as possible (with the promise of cake in return, of course). It’s not quite ready yet, but I desperately want to share it with all of you from now… I’m super excited about it (even though it is still massively under construction….)!

So to all of my followers, old and new: thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy lives to spend even a second browsing through my blog and being a huge part of it. I could think of nothing greater than you joining me on the new one. So here it is… introducing, Thyme & Honey.

A guilty pleasure…

It’s recently become apparent to me that I have a bit of a problem. I have a slight obsession with taking pictures of the food that I eat on a day to day basis. Whether it’s baklava after a nostalgic Cypriot lunch, the most mouth watering steak cooked blue at the Big Easy, a bowl of baked beans and buttered toast (eaten curled up on the sofa – obvs.), or a slice of the richest chocolate torte at a wedding, I’ll snap it up. I guess I just like to remember the moment (read as: I have no shame). Continue reading

An Introduction

To me, there is nothing in this world which could be more delightful than food. Cooking for and feeding friends and family is my favourite pastime, and one which I always make time for.

Here, I intend to share my recipes, cooking triumphs, experiments and adventures in a wholehearted attempt to get those willing to indulge & devour.
