At the start of 2012 I had two resolutions: to achieve good health, and to have my writing published. Good health is ongoing... Just now is probably not the moment to dwell, let's move right along! As far as the writing went, the story is far more positive. I joined the Domestic Sluttery team in May, as the gluten free columnist, and it has been a brilliant experience. The team of writers over there are intimidatingly talented and every day I feel like I push myself a little bit harder, it's a steep learning curve, but a rewarding one. Later in the year, I had an article published in Your Wellness Magazine entitled, Can You Eat to Beat Crohn's Disease? which was well received and is hopefully the start of great things!

This year, I haven't made resolutions in the same way, more statements of intent. I have spoken to a few people I respect about those statements and I'm feeling very positive about them - more to follow, I promise; I'm not being deliberately vague! I do have list of foods I plan to make this year, it will grow but so far the list is;

  1. souffle - I'm determined to conquer this one!
  2. macarons - I want to try nut-free ones.
  3. fish fingers - perhaps surprisingly, I've never made these.
  4. goat curry - not the easiest meat to get hold of but it's something I've always wanted to try to make.
  5. the perfect chilli con carne - we all have our favourite recipes for this, I want to find the absolute best!
You can guarantee that I'll share the results of this list with you as the year unfolds. What are your resolutions for 2013?


  1. Oh, I tried goat for the first time in Uganda last year - it was delicious!!

  2. I love mutton and I expect goat to be similar, but I'm struggling to find goat in the UK. There must be someone selling it!
