Creativity & Food

In my world everything is interconnected - food, creative arts, emotions, relationships, nature and our daily surroundings.

In recent years there are a few buzz words associated with all the lovely fruits & vegetables available, that are used to tell us why we should eat them.

It was a very enjoyable experience that I have recreated when ever I can get a hold of the large pasta shells.  I felt that the same filling would work well with... Continue Reading →

Sun-dried Tomato & Basil Pesto
