Revive the senses through feel-good food. Just do anything food-wise, no matter how small, that makes you zing: pour hot water over fresh herbs for a fragrant tea; buy a whole organic pumpkin for a kitchen table centrepiece; thank a farmer at a farmers' market; put your hands on warm earth; spot a local rosemary bush; snag some for your lamb roast or your hair (Why not? Go nuts!); and comment to share your feel-good spring snippet. If stuck for ideas, mine are yours. Let's unite in support of feel-good food and ethical food practices. Thanks to all too who supported my Spring Feel-Good Food Project. I had a blast! While my food interests are diverse, so is my food writing history (and lifestyle freelance writing and corporate writing, yada...). Please see below right and my new FoodLit Website. Yeah! Please also subscribe for occasional food-fuelled news, ventures and opportunities.

You Can't Fake The Feeling... Day 42, 50 To Go...



Feeling a bit flat this arvo with the inevitable challenges of  starting a new business and work direction, I was, if truth be told, tempted to fake it. You know, just grab some random image from the web, write some random blurbage and stay feeling flat and crappy.

I did promise myself from the outset that this 91 days of blogging was for me, a way of lifting spirits, enlivening me, keeping me truly awake to taste and smell (and maybe even to the satisfying sound of serving saucy tagliatelle into a bowl). When I stop in presence, I am in awe of all things beautiful and that includes the gift of vibrant food.

With that in mind and within 15 minutes of bunging open the freezer, the pantry, the fridge and the garden gate, this tagliatelle with tomato, basil and a hint of garlic sauce, finished with a touch of That's Amore's baby bocconcini, emerged. 

She was steaming and sighing with flavour, the pasta heavy with sauce and grateful for the local tomatoes that made it - last summer's backyard crop sewn, nurtured and preserved with reverence. 

Do I feel flat now? Hell, no! I feel as pumped as tagliatelle plumped with home grown, home made tomato sauce.

What's your favourite pick-me-up meal?
