These awesome chocolate orange & ginger cakes were my birthday treat to myself this year - yummy, vegan, and comparatively healthy ;-)

As you may have noticed from my almost-silence in the blogosphere, it's been a busy summer over here. Quite aside from the usual home and work commitments, we've helped my mother-in-law to downsize from a house to a one-bed flat, and I've been writing my thesis, and I've been on holiday with my ...

I've had a subscription to Graze boxes for ages, now, so I was kind of excited when I heard they were launching a new off-the-shelf range in supermarkets. I got my hands on some early samples, and perhaps unsurprisingly I recognise most of the snacks from the subscription model.

Have you been to the Krakow salt mines?
One of the best things about academia is the options it can offer for travel, to conferences and to collaborate. I've been particularly lucky in this respect: this month, it was a visit to Krakow for a project meeting. I took Andy with me and we decided to make a week of it, and see the city ...

Beginning the recap of my mum's birthday trip with the highlights of our time in Berlin
My mum had a significant birthday recently, so I said I'd take her on holiday, just the two of us. Anywhere, I said: you choose, I'll pay. (With hindsight, this is the kind of offer you only want to make to people you really trust; thankfully that's not an issue between us!) ...

More photos from our recent trip to Egypt
As well as seeing the pyramids and other ancient Egyptian sites, while we were in Egypt we also enjoyed visiting some more recent (but still historic) buildings. One such was the mosque and madrasa of Sultan Hassan, dating back to the Mamluk period. I particularly loved the carved calligraphy, ...

There's a brief snippet of Watersmeet over at Storyteller Alley today, along with the chance to win a copy if you sign up for their newsletter
When a stranger tells her she's a mage, Ailith is intrigued but she's also afraid. Magic is heresy, and heresy means death under the Temple Law.    Even literacy is suspect in...

Writer, travel addict, vegetarian foodie. Blogging at http://rachelcotterill.com
Introduction
I live in a beautiful Cotswold cottage with my husband. I'm always exploring, whether at home or abroad. Despite occasional, feeble attempts to enumerate my interests, I'm actually interested in everything.  I write a food and travel blog, and book reviews. I'm studying for a PhD in computational linguistics, I do freelance travel and food writing, and I've published three fantasy/adventure novels and the first in a series of recipe books.
