Reading Corner: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

Recently, I read, and loved, Gail Honeyman’s Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. It’s uplifting, heartbreaking and downright genius. Eleanor Oliphant’s mind is complex and contradictory: simultaneously full of confusion and certainty, denial and acceptance, darkness and light. She evolves as the novel progresses, and it’s encouraging to see a character with such a distorted view of both life and of herself change in a positive way and confront her past and her fears.

In The Pod: Shagged Married Annoyed

Having never really listened to podcasts before, I decided recently to start listening to Shagged, Married, Annoyed by Chris and Rosie Ramsey, and, frankly, I am so glad I did.

Here are some simple solutions and recipes to help you reduce your household food waste. Continue reading Food Waste Fixes

Pop Culture Fix: Podcast Recommendations

Off Menu is definitely my favourite podcast. Sounds strange to make comedy out of food but every episode is hilarious. James and Ed invite guests to their magical restaurant where they can order their dream meal, but if you’re not that passionate about cooking then don’t be put off! Food content acts more as a conversation prompt and the chat always ends up somewhere rogue. Ed and James are amazing hosts and I could happily listen to just those two, but they have had some amazing guests, Nish Kumar being my favourite.
