Welcome to my hubs!

I write about my love of cooking and trying out new recipes that come to me via family or an old cookbook. There is nothing like taking a few ingredients and making a masterpiece for the taste buds. Some people do yoga, tai chi or meditate but I cook to relax.

I am beginning a new adventure with my family by begining a small farm. Our main crops will be vegetables and seasonal fruit. We will be adding on chickens, nut trees and as we grow, so will the scope of what our farm can offer our local community.

My love of nature has brought me years of joy whether it is getting my hands down into the soil or capturing a moment with my camera. I have stopped dead in my tracks to see some phenomenal sunrises, have the wind blow through me while the sweat pours down and seen some amazing critters that live amongst us but go unnoticed most days.
