Some years ago, I started to write a little cookbook for my Grandfleas, based on the recipes that their parents had loved as children and that they had learnt to cook as they were growing up (all my own fleas are excellent cooks, as is Grandpa Flea who does most of the cooking now). I had grand idea of including those childhood photos featuring spaghetti all over the face, table and clothes; chocolate faces from “licking out the bowl” – you get the picture. Unfortunately my Grandfleas didn’t – another great idea down the toilet of procrastination!
However, I am feeling invigorated again after 12 months of moving and settling in, then another 12 months of Guild shenanigans and ill health. Restarting this blog is part of my renewed energy and I am going to record here the tried and true recipes that I cook, so all can enjoy them – and the Grandfleas can find them.
