Going Bananas in the Kitchen
Terry’s Chocolate Orange – For Life or Just for Christmas?
It started as a no-brainer. One morning last week I spotted that the three bananas in my fruit bowl had suddenly got just a little bit riper than I like to eat. If I’m clever I notice I have more bananas than eating time. I peel them and freeze them and pull them out for […]
The Emperor’s New Carrots
Nothing less important to share this Good Friday lunchtime than an international conspiracy that I am right at the centre of and note that I have less than 48 hours to get this sorted. So syringe your ears, put your specs on and pluck away any stray nasal hairs that could prove detrimental in the olfactory department because what I’m talking about today is something that deserves the attention of all your senses.
When the Emperor has finished parading naked through the streets listening to folk exclaiming about the outstanding elegance and style of his non-existent finery, and returns to the palace for dinner, might I respectfully suggest he gets Chef to include some Tesco Chantanay carrots on his plate? I couldn’t help noticing on today’s supermarket trip […]
A Chunk of Chocolate
Those of you who know me, in the flesh or via these ramblings will know that I struggle sometimes to eat in a consistently healthy way. If I’m in a hurry or engrossed in my work, it’s all too easy to just reach for the first edible item I can put my hand on and […]

I casually asked her what sort of chocolate she liked and this was her response. I’m reproducing parts of it – with her full consent – because I love to […]
Bye bye Sugar Monster
It’s been a funny old week on the food and juice front. I had no sooner decided to turbo-charge my life with Judith Morgan – see www.typepad.threewisewomen.com – than my new eating habits went pear-shaped, or rather chocolate-muffin-shaped. Now, I don’t really want to dwell on this as I’ve already made a public confession on […]
The Citrus Spin
My sweet tooth is almost as old as me. I remember once, at the age of about ten, coming out of the dentist with a new filling. It was in the days when all dentists were grumpy old men and before they’d discovered the anaesthetic. Or perhaps children’s pain didn’t matter back then. Anyway, to […]
3 carrots (washed, topped and tailed) 3 oranges (peel pared off but keeping as much pith as possible) Handful of spinach 1 large pear Stick all through the juicer, makes a pint of really filling sweet-sharp tasting juice. The sharpness of the oranges takes away the raw veggie taste you can get from the spinach. […]
