  1. Hi Jorth, great idea! I'm going to give this a go this week (except for tonight of course). Where do you get your recipes?

  2. Hi Amy,

    Most of the recipes are out of my head! Sometimes I'll see something in a recipe book, but by the time I end up tweaking with it, it usually doesn't resemble the orginal very much at all ;-)

  3. h, my. i think i'm in love.

  4. you are without a doubt, my new favourite blog! i think i'll try the moroccan potato stew this week. maybe the winter noodle dish too except with a different kind of noodles. the way you feel about mushrooms is similar to the way i feel about soba noodles.

  5. I love your site, I come here for inspiration for my week's meals, I am a busy student, but I am also trying to eat healthy.
    I was wondering if you had any recipes with quinoa.
    Thanks for such a wonderful blog!
