Eat Like a Girl is FOURTEEN today!

Fourteen years ago I quietly changed my life with one small step.

Of course, I had no idea I was. There were no big plans. Just a deep desire to write and express myself about all things food and travel which had been festering for years and had to be exorcised from my heart and head to the stove and the page.

Perched at my desk in the dark hallway of my Kilburn flat I first said hello from this fresh new website, and announced my intentions.

Here I am today, 14 years later after sharing hundreds of recipes, travel stories and two books later. I still feel like I am only getting started because there is so much more that I want to do!

You must embrace your dreams and follow your heart

I am also here to tell you that you must follow your heart. Whatever they are, announce your intentions, even just to yourself at first. It’s powerful. Once you sow the seed it will start to grow, then you must nurture it.

That’s the challenge.

When it is something that you love, the challenge is yourself and your own fear getting in your own way. What have you got to lose? We have a short time here and as the song says, it is later than you think. Embrace your dreams, even if they feel thorny. Especially if they feel thorny. You will thank yourself for it!

Let’s celebrate with a Bacon the Cookbook flash sale!

To celebrate, there is 20% off #BaconTheCookbook on to celebrate getting here. Because these things absolutely have to be celebrated! Use code MayJoy at the checkout. It is valid until midnight on Monday May 3rd UK time.

Thank you for all of your support and lovely comments along the way. It is always a joy to hear from you. I know I haven’t been here much lately. Being publisher and author is time consuming, a huge challenge and something I am very excited about. I have plans!
