This blog is our family’s new-fashioned kitchen notebook.
It’s not about mermaids. It’s not even about seaweed.
It’s about food, and some of our favourite family recipes and the fun we’ve had around that. Mermaid’s tresses are a delicious treat at our local Chinese restaurant. They’re not on the menu any more, but we still ask for that dish whenever we go there for dinner. And I’ve now learned how to make it.
So this kitchen notebook is a way of passing on recipes and memories to my daughter as she left home and wanted to know how to make something. It’s to help me find my favourite recipes. And it’s an attempt to rationalise the pile of recipe books on my shelf, on the coffee table, and spilling into a corner cupboard. And finally, it’s also become somewhere to post the odd photo of camping trips, bushwalks and even odd creatures in the garden.
