Hello and Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my blog.

This is my very first one, so bear with me and enjoy reading about my adventures cooking all of the recipes from Nigella Lawson's new book 'Kitchen'.

From time-to-time I may post about things other than cooking, after all, Nigella does sell a lifestyle that most women would like have a slice of, so I would like to share a bit of mine - not quite as glamorous but fun none-the-less (may I add that most of my ideas and thoughts revolve around food anyway)!

Just to set the scene a little, I am based in Yorkshire, live with my husband and gorgeous toddler who is rapidly approaching his second year. I work in the events industry and love music, books, fashion, culture and of course... food.

A big slurp of Vietnamese Pork Noodle Soup

This dish is another variation of one we usually make including Shitake Mushrooms, which were sadly missed on this occasion. There is not a lot better though than a slurp-fest of noodley, brothy soup on a freezing cold evening. The one comment I will make is that I don't think Oxo stock cubes add the required magic. We usually buy fresh stock for this kind of dish and it works better. Lime was a welcome ingredient though which added a bit of a twist. Would be interested to try some mint and/or lemongrass to see what this would bring to the soup party, but that might be too much. These are ingredients much used though in Vietnamese cuisine apparently.

No cooking tonight as I have been snacking all day to get me through a difficult day's work. Have an event coming up at the end of November which is going to eat up (no pun intended) a lot of my time, so will really put this challenge to the test.

More food soon.
