Gluten and dairy – A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent. – Single Dad, Parents Article

Sorry having to milk the red flowers. They don’t last long and then that’s it for another year. Sadly shopping comes round much more frequently.

My back yard, though I’d planned to take care of it and turn it into a pretty little something, was overgrown by what most of the world knows as weeds. As a forager, I know these plants are mostly edible and delicious, and I made sure to use the mallow overtaking most of my yard in many recipes, but eventually they started to mature and not be so good to eat anymore, so my kids pulled them up before our…

Care Bear – A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his Partner and becoming a single parent. – Single Dad, Parents Article

The kindly local farmer has been most busy this year. Much needed light amongst the darkness. The Care Bear is well off the path so is maintaining at least 4m of social distancing. That’s a good idea as it was windy. On the dog walk this morning we saw a number of cyclists and runners on the distant country lane. They were all trying to observe the new social distancing advice. All seemed to be keeping the 2m recommended separation.…

Locals, when serving a nice meal, like to put out a spread of meze, salads and spreads and other dips to eat at the start of a meal. Hummus, tahini, roasted eggplant salad, spicy carrot salad, and marinated eggplant salad are all common to find as part of this mezze, but there are two tomato and pepper cooked salads that are served and I wasn’t quite sure how to explain the difference between them to people, but knew I definitely…

I really wanted a good chocolate chip cookie, but the gluten free ones I purchased recently were quite unsatisfactory for me. My 9 year old son, Ike, wanted to do some baking with me and chose to make cookies.

I was trying to find a recipe that didn’t call for…
