All the awesomeness that I cook up in the kitchen hasn't stopped, and my wish to write for myself hasn't died. But life gets in the way, and sometimes you need a way in to make the re-entry easier.

My re-entry to food blogging has been made easier with a very generous offer from the lovely people at Taste of Cape Town. They're offering tickets to 2 of my lovely readers (think of it as a loyalty reward - if you're still around after all this time, you deserve this!)
