Sugar-free cakes, biscuits and sugar-free 'chunky' flapjacks!! Stored in my cake tins adorned with owls ... A few years ago I did a shamanic journey with Linda in the Mandala Hut at Bliss Cottage, it was so powerful and my power animal was a wise owl... at the time I believed I was 'stupid', not 'academic' and I didn't go to university because I wasn't clever! Well, that seems like another lifetime ago now, in fact it was another life - I am such a different person today thanks to Ayurveda & Linda.
I made these yummy date balls many years ago and took some on one of Linda's weekend workshops at Bliss Cottage, since then they have been called Bliss Balls! The health benefits of dates are vast.

My Passion for Beans. The first time I ever had a combination of beans and grain was in my 20's when I was staying with a friend in London. Her boyfriend was Indian and he cooked us a meal one evening. I wasn't keen on the look of the dish and reluctantly tried it, only to be surprised by its wonderful melding of tastes, a combination of nutty, earthy flavours and exotic spices that I had never experienced before, I loved it and will never forget it 40 yrs later.
