Cooking is a relaxation and pleasure for me. I grow most of my own produce using the Moon phases to plant my veggie garden. I also like to catch our own fish. I don't like recipes that need a lot of preparation time so my recipes are selected for speed of preparation. After recovering from bi lateral breast cancer I have taken a keen interest in Ayurvedic cooking as many of the spices used in these dishes seem to have helped my recovery, so we eat spicy dishes several times a week.
