    About Me

    I live with my husband and 2 cats in Worcester Park; a quiet typical 1930s suburb (which no one has ever heard of!) about 12 miles South West of London.

    I'm a fair weather gardener and as my husband is a vegetarian I grow a few easy vegetables, such as tomatoes and peppers, mainly in containers. My husband loves growing flowers, the brighter the better, and we have a pretty garden as a result. Our cats, Araminta and Purrl, like it too!

    I do a lot of cooking and try to keep our diet as healthy and varied as possible. Although I work full time, I use very little in the way of pre-prepared foods. This is partly because of the limited choice of vegetarian meals, which I think are overpriced anyway; but mainly because I like to know what goes in my food!

    I love using the Internet for all the great ideas it gives me. Last year I participated in the Zaar World Tour (under my previous public name Caroline Blakey), which was great. Mr B and I tried lots of new foods and discovered new favourite meals. Researching recipes for the Tour was really interesting, however as I didn't have time to try them all, some were posted untested. I'm still working my way very slowly through them. To make matters worse I keep seeing other recipes I want to save and have also participated in Zaar world Tour II. So many recipes, so little time to make them!



    My 'rules' for posting recipes are a) if I wouldn't make a particular recipe, I won't post it and b) if my husband wouldn't eat it, I won't post it. This means that all my recipes are vegetarian friendly.

    As you will see from the number of recipes saved in my cookbooks, I particularly enjoy making jams and chutneys; I'd say it was one of my favourite hobbies. We always have a good supply of home preserves; my friends and work colleagues are well supplied too.

    If we won the lottery (say ?5m, as a good number) we'd like to give up work, move to the country and buy a place with a bit of land. In my dreams this would be a manor house or old vicarage, with a walled garden, an orchard where I could keep hens, a vegetable garden, etc, etc, etc! In my more realistic moments (the ?1m win perhaps) I would like to run a B&B, perhaps offering Vegetarian taster weekends. Luckily it costs nothing to dream.......I?d also love more time to read, do embroidery, learn a language, see more of the countryside; and of course play on Zaar.

    Favorite Foods

    I don't often get to eat my all time fave, Indian food, because Mr B's not keen on spicy food (the wrong kind of experiences in his youth!). I don't go along with cooking separate meals so since we met 5 years ago I have enjoyed a vegetarian diet. I do occasionally return to my carnivorous past when eating out, but otherwise I?m 99% vegetarian too. Although my Mother worries about me not getting enough vitamins and a work mate is convinced I am being manipulated (neither of which is the remotely likely!), I'm not in the least hard done by as I love the thrill of tracking down a great new recipe and trying out new foods; foods that I certainly wouldn?t have come across before. I have recently discovered smoked tofu, which we now both enjoy, I love lentils and pulses, we love our own homemade ice creams; Italian food also comes very high on our respective lists.
