IMG_1620-1024x10241

This weekend I got into the festive spirit (which is slightly earlier than I normally would but I’m certainly not complaining) and did a Christmas Wreath making workshop at a local Florist. Tracey set up Foxtail Lilly in her own outbuildings in a town local to me and is a wonderfully inspirational

I love that point when you have been visiting relatives and it becomes time to leave, where you are almost certainly persuaded to take something with you whether it be left over cake, plant clippings, some carrots dug out the garden (the later is a particular reference to my Grandad)

From Burano, with love

BURANO-7

I first heard about Burano just over a year ago when I discovered one of my now favourite instagrammers @corrine_t - a well travelled nurse from Canada. Her beautiful gallery features bright shots from all over the world sharing experiences and offering inspiration. It was inspiration I took from her photos of

Hot-cross-buns

When I arrived back from a two week road trip around Italy at 2 O’Clock in the morning it had completely slipped my mind that it was in fact Easter Day. It hadn’t crossed my mind that the fridge was empty and the shops would be shut and there was

spinach pie 2

Spinach is one of those things that every now and then I get an overwhelming craving for – usually after a spat of unhealthy eating when I can almost hear my body crying out for vitamins. There’s just something about eating it that makes me feel much better. Kind of

Duck legs are one of my most favourite things to eat. At a pub I used to work in a few years ago they used to get duck legs from a local butcher that were cured and they were the most delicious flavour! So when I saw Fergus Henderson’s recipe

Paella

Raspberry and Rosewater cupcakes - Katie Alice

How food blogs won me over

From FOOD 52

Blogging does not come naturally to me. A couple of years ago you couldn’t have recommended a blog highly enough to me that it would actually make me sit down and enter its URL into my search bar. And trying to get me to update my then pitiful blog was

Celery and celeriac soup - Katie Alice

A mighty soup that’s worthy of a dinner. Every time I tell my boyfriend that I’m going to make soup for dinner he always looks at me in that same grateful but unsure way and I can almost hear him mentally going through the contents of the fridge as he

Katie Alice blog

Look, it’s not my fault that I’m feeling christmassy. I’ve been forced to watch christmas adverts, read christmas gift idea emails and eat mince pies for almost a month now so it’s bound to start rubbing off eventually. (I’m lying when I say that I’ve been forced to eat mince

Pancakes - Katie Alice blog

Who doesn’t love Pancake Day, …or to go by it’s more serious and far less appetising name, Shrove Tuesday.

Wow what a busy couple of months it’s been! As much as I’d like to be one of those marvellously organised business women who stylishly shimmy’s around their busy schedule, ticking jobs orderly off a very well written list, I know I never will be. And thats fine (- although

Hampton Court Flower Show

If you’d have told me 20 years ago - when the only way my Mum could convince me to go to a garden centre was at the promise of a peek around the tropical fish section with potential purchase to follow - that today I would be the one booking us tickets and planning days out to any garden or flower festival going, I most certainly would have laughed my frilly socks off at the idea of it...
