River Gojee.

I don't know if it's cause I'm busy with wedding preparations and my two jobs or if I'm just annoyed by not being able to take nice photos of my food due to winter darkness. For some reason I just seem to be unable to write new blogposts. It's probably a combination of both.

But I'm optimistic that it will be getting better again in the near future, once I have more time and spring is approaching.

Since I don't have a recipe to share with you I would like to leave you with two recommendations today.

The first one is "River Cottage" a British TV show that aired at the end of the 90s beginning of the ne millenium. For those who don't know this show already: Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, a food writer and chef and journalist leaves the city and moves to Britain's countryside to live a self-sufficient life. He grows everything himself, gets livestock and, of course, cooks really nice meals from what he finds on his land and around it. It is very inspiring. Thanks to Carson and Erin for recommending this to us. We watched the whole trilogy "Escape to", "Return to" and "River Cottage Forever" within a couple of days. The newer episodes I don't like as much though. They get too Jamie Oliver, kind of...
Not that I have a problem with Jamie Oliver. But one is enough and I prefer the episodes where Hugh discovers a whole bunch of new things and is rather teaching us how to be self-sufficient rather than being a chef.

Anyway, watch it. It's great!
Here is a youtube-link:

My second recommendation is the NY based food site From how I understood they pick really good foodblog writers and post their recipes on their website. I may be wrong though... But, at least there is a whole bunch of food writers who contribute recipes to the Gojee page.

However, the recipes divided by food and drinks look so delicious, and before browsing you can enter what you crave, what you dislike and what you have at home.
