I’m pretty boring in the kitchen, I’m the kind of person that’s happy to cook once and eat the same thing for 3 days until it’s gone. While that might make me a terrible recipe blogger I think it makes me slightly more relatable!

Most of the food coming out of my kitchen is very simple, focused on whatever is coming in from the garden, and readily adapted to what I have on hand.

Unless we’re talking about Halloween, then all bets are off and things can get…. dare I say batty?
