It’s hard to come back to a blog after a long break. So much to say, where do you start? Or restart?


Firstly, you should know that the FC and I finally moved into our new home. Though we’ve had our share of stress (pidgeon poo in the ceiling, crooked floors, shady contractors) we also feel crazily blessed. The cool touch of new slate under our feet (like being at the beach) the gleaming white kitchen cupboards, the magical garden that just feels so huge compared to the small terrace of my former apartment– How lucky are we?


And with this change of address I feel the blog should change too. Not sure how yet… Perhaps I’ll start with the name. Goodbye Cooking For Cock, hello Eat My Heart? Because that’s what I want to record; all the delectable morcels of goodness (culinary and otherwise) I encounter in this new chapter in my life.

    Dig the pigeon poop into the garden and plant some purslane. I’ve just discovered this wonderful “weed” which grows everywhere and in the past was pulled out of the garden with a vengeance. It’s a tasty ancient crop, a peppery succulent, which has a much higher nutritional value than lettuce or spinach. Pull them out and eat your weedies instead! Next,Lambs Quarters!

    I think this is a very nice idea to make a new start! Isn’t life all about that?

    Love the potential new name too.

    I am super glad you like your new love nest!! Enjoy! Can’t wait to see it sometime.

    Would that I had enough full sun for a vegetable garden. Shade lovers like mint will thrive. Is purslane shade-friendly?

    But I do have a small patch of sun that could host a few things, it’s limited real estate– until the FC and I build a roof deck! (But for now, we’re done with construction. It’s hell on love.)
