The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

I have conquered a place in my man’s heart.

Especially these days.


My cooking skills have improved. Everything tastes better. I thank Jamie, my love thanks me Glimlach

I have been making a bouquet garni for most of our meals.

A bouquet garni is a little bundle of mixed fresh herbs that you add to the pot and let simmer. I have been adding it to all of our soups, stews, sauces and ragouts.

The most ordinary of Bolognese sauce becomes something out of this world when you let a little bouquet of herbs swimming in it.

Typical herbs for a bouquet garni are bay leaves, thyme and rosemary. I usually also add flat parsley, dragon, chives and sage. But anything goes. Just tie them all together with some butchers twine and drop in the pot.

Fresh herbs are really the best invention ever. They do not only taste good, they smell divine too.

That’s why I also often put little herb bouquet on the table when making a table setting.



Good thing that herbs are plants that actually grow better when you cut them regularly.

And that’s what I do.
