The inspiration for the name of this journal comes from the experiments I’ve tried with my new slow cooker. A kitchen gadget given as a Christmas present, practical of course, but also with great sentimental value.

I hope, like the ingredients I use, my journal articles will be varied and spontaneous. I’m hoping to record all sorts of things but will start with a few articles on specific yoga poses and handmade amateur sequences.

Nothing written on here has the intent to advise. I will aim to pinpoint my weaknesses and progressions, as well as any discoveries I make. I’m not going to pretend to be an expert.

I’m a beginner yogi, a beginner chef and a beginner at life! This space online provides me with the impetus to record my findings.
