Introduction Food, glorious food, eh? As a recent veggie who also tends to shun dairy and eggs, I'm on a constant adventure with food. Living in the not-extremely-veg-friendly Ireland, it can be a challenge eating out, but a pleasure eating at home. This blog will chronicle my eating-in, eating-out and baking adventures and other tasty delights. Bon appetit!
Interests I, food, cooking, baking, veggies, reading inspiring books, writing, interviewing people, chocolate, the hiss and scratch of vinyl, inlay cards, writing 'to do' lists, meeting new people, buying presents for people, badges, nice bags, jeans, tank tops, band t-shirts that fit, talking feminism, pink converse hi-tops, bangles, sequinned scarfs, getting emails, finding new music, finding old music, going to gigs, dancing my pants off at Freakscene, sitting in the pub reminiscing with friends, finding out new things, being inspired by people....
