Julie’s Kitchen

This is where I share my love of cooking with the season’s best from your backyard harvest. There will be lots of ideas on getting the most out of your kitchen garden and plenty of ways to reward your gardening efforts with simple tastier meals. The emphasis will be on cooking quick, easy to prepare meals with lots of tips for adding flavour and of course, how to use your home grown herbs to make every dish taste great. Get on board, get in the kitchen and enjoy your food.
