Raw S’Mores (Grain Free, Vegan, Candida-Diet Friendly)

From what I can tell, S’mores are the quintessential “camp” food. What child hasn’t eaten a gooey S’mores bar? Well, dear readers, it’s True Confession time: I am that child who has never eaten a S’mores bar. (Does that make me S’less?)

When I was a kid, summers were a fairly […]

Remembering Mom Today

The Girls having a little wrestle-fest in the back yard.

For someone who’s been without her mother for quite a long time (my mum died in 1991), I tend to think about her rather a lot.

Driven by Distraction

I wouldn’t have believed it myself if it hadn’t happened to me personally (why, yes, you’re absolutely right, that does sound like the opening line of a letter to Penthouse Forum! But sorry, it’s not).

Remembrance of Foods Past

As our man Marcel so eloquently illustrated, it’s pretty much natural for most of us to be flooded with sensory memories when we inhale the aroma of some beloved or long-forgotten food–images come flooding back as quickly as a montage in a rap video.
