Hello world!

A little bit about me…I’m on this journey called life as a follower of Jesus, wife, historian, craft-maker, tea-cup collector, baker, traveller, beekeeper, hopeless romantic and anglophile.

Since I didn’t know what to put on my page (no doctoral thesis reflections from me!), I’ve decided to use it as a place to post what’s cooking in my kitchen, the crafts I’ve been working on and what I’m up to in Bristol and beyond. I hope that you will enjoy!

    Love the picture, and the hat is real cute. Going to get some blackberries and try this. Sounds delicious. Do you think coconut flour would work, I have lots of that.

    • Hi Marlene, sorry, just saw this today. I think it would work really well as the texture would be similar to that I was using! Thank you for your responses, we are glad to be able to keep in touch on here! Did you make your crisp? Did you pick blackberries?

        Hi Rebekah, Love your blog, check it everyday. The pictures are absolutely wonderful, can’t seem to get enough of them, almost like being there when you know the one who took them. Glad to see Jennie too. I made the crisp, and no, I didn’t go pick blackberries, used blueberries because I had lots. It was great with the coconut flour on the topping, but I would use the gluten free flour that you did for the fruit filling. Coconut flour sucks up the juice in the filling and it leaves a grainy feel in your mouth. Got compliments on it, so will make it again. Tell Chris that I am waiting to see some more words of wisdom on his sight.

    Yummy! Those cookies look tasty. Glad that you found good flour!

    Hi Rebekah, wayne here. Just read your blog for the first time and want to add my Best Wishes to you and Chris in your new adventure. I hope things are going well. I know there will always be obstacles to clear, but if there are two people I know can do it, it’s you and Chris. God bless you both in your endeavours and know that you always have people rooting for you here (and I’m sure in Bristol too!). I talk to Sharon regularly and we are going out for her birthday supper soon. We’re also going to Port Dover for a day trip when we get a good day. She misses you both terribly, but I’d be more worried if she didn’t. And she’s a trooper, she’ll work her way thru this and be fine. I know that Marianne and Linda are giving her lots of support as well.
    I like your blog, keep up the good work. Say Hi! To Chris for me.
    Love to you both


    • Thanks Wayne!
      We sure miss our family too, but it’s amazing how we can keep in touch with everyone through technology. So thankful for that! Thanks for being a friend to Sharon, we appreciate it. Glad you have found us on here and keep in touch! Rebekah

    Hello Rebekah, I tried that crisp recipe on company today, and it was delicious. Used a tart apple with raspberries and thickened it with corn starch. I used the coconut flour and increased the butter a bit. Turned out great and my gluten-free friend really enjoyed it. Thanks for the recipe.

    Hi Rebekah, My favorite breakfast is oatmeal with apples poached in maple syrup on top. Whenever I cook it, I imagine being in a stone cottage in the highlands of Scotland. Up to my eyeballs in tomatoes for Salsa. Made 5 batches and still have a bazillion tomatoes to do. Not complaining (much), just have sore feet.

    • Marlene, I could easily see having that breakfast in Scotland, what beautiful imagery! Hope the salsa making went well. I know about sore feet, sprained my ankle this week! Blessings my friend!

  6. Hi Rebekah, wayne again. It’s 7 pm on a rainy Tuesday here, but thankfully no snow yet and not too cold. How is the weather there? Not too bad I hope. How are things going? Adjusting to life in another country must be difficult, but I’m sure you are doing fine. I think of you guys often and of course you are in my prayers nightly. My daughter Heather lives in Galway, Ireland and she tells me a little about her weather, so maybe you folks get about the same. They are coming to visit and I was thinking of making spag. Sauce with meatballs, and Sharon suggested I ask you for a recipe….any ideas? My email address is
    I would love to hear from you, even if it’s just to say Hi!
    Well that’s about it from here, I will sign-off with Love and best wishes to you and Chris.


    • Hi Wayne,
      Sorry for the delay in response, when Chris has the computer for research I rarely get on here! Will try to e-mail you tomorrow, hope you had a great Thanksgiving and will e-mail soon!
