I, personally, don’t subscribe to any model of the market which sees the consumer as just a helpless victim, completely at the mercy of ogre-like corporations.

I believe that markets work best when there is an open exchange of information between customer and supplier.

You won’t receive if you don’t ask in the first place. Shy babies get no goodies.

Out Like A Lion

Daylight savings time. It’s supposed to herald the return of Spring, non? Summer just round the next bend in the road? Eh?

Obviously someone in the Weather Planning Department never got the memo.

All things considered, Winter could have been a lot worse.

The frozen season was, even by the relatively gentle standards of Southern Sweden, a mild one.

After another night in the fridge, making 2 in total, the flavours had really had a chance to develop. Thicker, and tastier. The fridge pixies had worked their magic yet again.

For many people searching for an alternative to a traditional wheat pasta, zoodles, those delectable spirals made out of zucchinis, have become the go-to solution.

There are, however, other options. Seaweeds, or as they are becoming better known nowadays, sea vegetables, can give you another string to your bow should you want or need it.

Chicken In Satay Sauce

For quite some time this recipe was stuck in what the movie people call development hell.

The concept was simple enough – chicken pieces simmered in a nut butter and coconut milk based sauce, but the devil, as always, was in the detail, which is kind of ironic, seeing as 2 different spell checkers have suggested that I change “satay” to “Satan“.
