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 little first-aid and Chops with Couscous

Without much prior thought (well, any actually) I had inadvertently booked myself onto a first-aid course yesterday, during one of the busiest weeks at work of the year. Despite not being able to focus my mind on the training, I did manage to come away from it feeling terrified about all manner of things - choking being the biggest. Little M's party trick seems to be stuffing as much food as possible into his mouth at once so it is always a worry for me. His favourite is a whole banana in his mouth at once - that's my boy. If I could take one thing away from the training it would be that if you can't move an obstruction by performing the heimlich manouvre , you should move onto CPR rather than try and get your fingers in the person's mouth. Told you, scaremongering stuff but something everyone should know.

Anyway, moving onto food for the day, last night I made Indian Rubbed Lamb with Lemon Rocket Couscous which was like a fireworks display for the tastebuds! Christmas chops I am now calling them due to the involvement of ground cloves. I urge everyone to try these NOW.

I'm not cooking tonight as it is just me and the young 'un in our house, so I will just have something easy, and start to write my birthday wish list. Ooh, so many things that I would like, including a live-in cleaner (which 'aint going to happen).
