“Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.” ~ Oprah Winfrey Hello, Lovelies! This simple lemony recipe celebrates the best of friendship. The recipe harks from my Nana’s friend, Coralee. Coralee and Nana were […]
“If your mother cooks Italian food, why should you go to a restaurant?” ~ Martin Scorsese Lovelies, hello!

‘Fairies know stuff. Animals know stuff too. Like when your doggie feels sicky so he eats some grass. Humans used to know stuff, but they forgot. So I’ll help you remember. Also it would be very nice if you could be kinder to yourself and to animals and all the people and also to the […]
“Not everyone can be a truffle. Most of us are potatoes. And a potato is a very good thing to be.” ~ Massimo Bottura I love baked potatoes. They go well as a side dish for barbeques and salads, but you can also load them up with toppings and have them as a meal on their own. […]

I’m crazy for leftovers. There is something completely satisfying about cooking a large batch of something and then being able to make easy meals for days. One of our favourite easy meals is leftovers stuffed into capsicum (bell peppers) and baked, with cheese added near the end for some satisfying melty goodness. When you bake red capsicums they end up so sweet and tender. Yum!
“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”

‘Everyone has healing nutriments that make them better and that also includes stuff you can’t eat and that is important nutriment too – like places and things you love and things you can do as well as eating things. So I like making nutriment plans to help people get better because then they will be happy and when they are happy they can feel and hear and remember their connection to the Earth and help her too. Love from Sokli, who is a fairy who knows stuff.’ ~ Sokli
“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?” ~ A. A.
