at home in the kitchen

Hiya, welcome to my cosy “thanksgiving kitchen.” On this page, you’ll see pretty easy to make wholesome tropically – flavoured recipes (with pics) of my homemade meals using ground & tree provisions, seasonal fruits, spices, fresh herbs from the garden and nature walks with some edible flowers in the mix.

Could you do with some encouragement on getting better acquainted with the kitchen? When I went from being busy on the road to working quietly from home, cooking daily (and better) was something I was really looking forward to and it’s ended up being a light and sweet part of days ever since. But at first, I had no clue where to start or what kinds of dishes I could rotate for a bit until I found new ones to add to my repertoire.

Maybe you’re a bit intimidated by the whole ‘shabang‘ of it all, but every meal doesn’t have to involve a whole production to be tasty, healthy and enjoyable. I’ve written out some recipes you can try out in your kitchen one or two scrolls away.

Too Busy To Cook or Start A Garden? Let’s Talk, sis…

For the former ‘hot-footing’ women now called and willing to work at home, here are a few posts for inspiration with gentle reminders that you’re meant for more than a career and your days or life don’t need to look glamorous or be jam-packed to be purposeful.
