Time to vote for your favourite blog… The vote is now open until 24th April…I am truly honoured to have been nominated for the Best Food Blog( Retired No One Told Me)  I also wish all my fellow nominees in that category and the other categories… Good Luck x

The vote is open please click the link below to make your votes…

As you know I blog about food ...A lot…I love food…Good Food…Home cooked food from scratch…The recipes I learnt from my grandmother and my mum and over the last few years have gathered many lovely recipes from people I have met on my travels…

Healthy Eating, good food prepared from scratch is my motto as is the environment…Just in case you hadn’t noticed…haha

salmon-steamed-Thai- coriander-chilli

Thai style steamed salmon with coriander and fish sauce, chilli and lime

To me, it all goes hand in hand …If we pollute the oceans and the fish, poison the fields and the vegetables, If we ignore the signs …We won’t have healthy food to eat it will be lab-grown meat, highly processed foods all which will shorten our lives and that of our children…So yes I do blog about that alongside food but as I said to me it is a circle and one doesn’t exist without the other…

If you agree with me then please vote for me( Retired No One Told Me) as I will always give you good, wholesome food made from scratch and which I feed my family …No fad, No fancies just good food…

I will also spread the good news like…

Pork Crackling is healthy… It is good fat…


Scientists have unveiled their top 100 rankings of the most nutritious foods, and pork fat has – surprisingly – cracked the top ten.

Sharing the top spots with almonds, chia seeds and swiss chard, pork fat scored number eight on the list of top 100 nutritious foods.

Pork fat was ranked highly on the BBC list because of its high content of B vitamins and minerals. Scientists revealed that – although the fat has a very high-calorie content – pork fat is a more unsaturated and healthier alternative to other meat fats, like lamb or beef.

Also Red wine and Chocolate are good for you…


Lips and chocolate

So don’t go thinking that all the food recipes I post are for rabbit food and the like it is all food which you would love to eat…But all cooked from scratch and which comes from sustainable sources …

I am also extremely chuffed and honoured to have been nominated for the Best Food Blog( Retired No One Told Me) and would like to wish all the other nominees in this and the other categories the very best of luck…xx

About Carol Taylor:

Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

The environment is also something I am passionate about and there will be more on this on my blog this year

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

More and more of my blogging friends have joined me on MeWe…A social media site which is fairly new and which promises much without the restrictions some other social media sites are choosing to impose on many of us…Join me if you will on
