Even though I haven’t been feeling too well, big positive changes are afoot for me!
I have finally taken the plunge and officially registered as self employed! However, I have thought about it and chosen to take a more holistic approach, so along with delicious healthy truffles, recipes, and food plans, I will also be incorporating other ideas in to my business, mainly growing edible plants and herbs, and creating eco-friendly art.
I love anything to do with being creative and helping to inspire kindness to our world, and I want to share it all!
My plan is:
To make and sell my vegan, gluten-free, healthy truffles that are free from processed sugar. I am hoping that I will be well enough this week to make a test batch to send to the food lab, once they have been tested over a couple of months, I will then be able to get an official best before date, and start selling online, woohoo!
I also want to create guides and meal plans in an easily accessible format to allow those who want to to follow the B’s Kitchen Diet.
To allow me to take time out of the kitchen, I would love to grow some edible plants and herbs to sell on - I could then add these exotic and interesting ingredients to my recipes.
I am also a creative, arty girl, and I love to make beautiful things out of what others would see as ‘rubbish’. For example, for a past college project, I have turned tetra packs that I had used in my kitchen into lovely containers to grow my herbs. Waste from the kitchen given a new lease of life, and taken back to the kitchen again! I have also just invested in a mini microwave glass kiln, so can’t wait to experiment and see what I can make with some recycled glass!
I also like the idea of making things to use in my kitchen, and using organic materials that are kind to planet and people. At college I particularly enjoyed working with paper and screen printing - so look out for bold organic tea-towels, and eye-catching shopping list notebooks.
Finally I love to spend time looking at the world through a camera lense, it’s amazing what it makes you see. I’ll be selling prints of some of my favourite photos, and making unique cards suitable for all occasions.
I am currently working on developing a website that will encorporate all of this! But in the mean time, keep following ‘B’s Kitchen’, and check out my arty blog at ‘http://kirsty-bee.tumblr.com/
also, don’t forget to look me up on Facebook:
So much going on! But so exciting!
Sorry that it has been so long since my last post, I have been struggling with the usual bouts of winter colds and ear infections, and as a result have lost my taste and smell for the last couple of weeks. Because of this, I haven’t been able to taste my food, so I haven’t been putting much effort in to cooking, only making sure that I get all the nutrients I need to get better, but this means nothing exciting has really been going on in B’s Kitchen, I need to wait to get my taste back so I can see what is worth sharing with you all!
In the mean time, I will be posting some goodies that I conjured up before my taste left me.
