Home made Coconut and Lime Ice cream.

Sometimes it is much easier to write when you are feeling melancholy. Life feels a little bit more poetic when your sad, and words seem to flow quite naturally. I often used a little bit of sadness as inspiration to write when Im feeling a little down or have a bad case of the winter blues. These days however I just dont seem to get the 'winter sads' and life is flowing along quite beautifully. So writing has not been at the front of my mind.

Cooking however has been (of course), and I have been going through such a lovely experimental time in the kitchen making home made ice cream, fresh breads and pastries. Our whole house has been filled with such lovely smells and it wont be bizarre for me to be casually eating quail on a wednesday night for dinner with a good glass of wine.  

Something lately has changed, where all the recipes that used to intimidate me a little now seem so logical and simple. Thats not to say everything works out perfectly, but complicated recipes no longer seem scary. 

Im at a little bit of a loss for words....all I can tell you is everything is splendid. I hope you're feeling the same. 

Heres a super simple ice cream recipe to get you inspired.
