My Favourites List For July 2014

Feijoas - Cook Republic

 

Last week we went away for a bit to the snow. Our first snow trip and I realised I was a snow person. I was clumsy as heck but I was definitely a snow person. I will do a full photo post of our snow adventures later this month. But first, I want to thank all of you for your massive love on my kitchen post. I am loving it in there. I have decided to take it slow over the next few months and return to cooking purely for the sake of cooking (not blogging!). I want to rediscover my love for food without adulterating it with an impending blog post or the perfect shot. I have spent so much time with my boys and my man over the past two weeks that it could fast become a habit. I have read a book, I have watched heaps of movies, I have gardened. I have not obsessed about work or social media. I have laughed till my belly ached. I have let go. Good times!

For all those of you who are still tossing up about buying my cookbook, Taste magazine have a six page extract in their August issue and it is beautiful. So go grab a copy. 

Hope you enjoy some of my favourite links this month. Have a wonderful weekend folks!
