These are the ramblings of an IT guy. A journal of random ideas and postings from a someone who likes to cook and enjoys the odd adventure.

Scribble, the words and Scran, a Scottish word for food. This is my place on the internet where the thoughts and musings are my own. My place to write about the meanderings around the kitchen table with the odd adventure thrown in as I explore the mountains of Scotland and take the odd holiday from the world of technology delivery.

Cooking for me is a practice, habitual and with rhythm. For me its a place where I find mindfulness and creativity, a place to escape. If you forget about the washing up I create, I like to think it’s one of the ways I help within the house. It’s a place where I grow and and learn.

Over the last few years I’ve been writing in fits and starts, mainly like my exercise routine. I try to do better every day, make the right choices and move forward.

Please subscribe and witness my journey as I pull a bunch of recipes together, alongside an amalgamation of memories, thoughts and ideas that helped me become the cook I am today

The ramblings and a journal of a cook, living in Scotland


Scribble and Scran

The ramblings on food, life and adventure from a cook trapped inside the world of technology. Armed with a collection of cookbooks that brought down a set of newly installed shelves. They were heavy and really nothing to do with my DIY capability!
