Photos of Scotland

Beyond the Books

I hope you enjoy the new page with a video and some photos that I just put up of our trip to Scotland in April of this year — we rented a boat and cruised the Caledonian Canal (Loch Ness and more) for a week during a fantastic stretch of sunny, warm weather.

We had such an amazing time, we’re going to do it all over again — same time, same place, NEXT year.  I can’t wait.  Going through all of the photos has got me excited…and I only have  7 more months to wait!

It’s a good thing I’m busy in the Outlander Kitchen…speaking of which, come and join the chat over on the  OK Facebook page…things can get a little silly over there at times, but we do have a good time!

As for Twitter, immediately after I set up the @OutlanderKitchn account, I did a search for #jamiefraser and #outlander and then quickly followed everyone who had used those hashtags. More accurately, I actually followed the 6 people who had used them most recently.  And then an angry red bar appeared at the top of my Twitter page — SUSPENDED?  What?

Six days later, I am happy to report that my account has been allowed out of time out.  Twitter’s bots accused me of “agressive following behaviour,” for which I have contritely apologized.  You’ll now see a little Twitter badge under the Facebook one over on the right side of the page.

If you’re looking for OK on Twitter, you’ll find us @OutlanderKitchn (notice the missing e) — give us a follow, and I’ll give you one right back!

    Hi, great blog!… and great title… I do love Jamie Oliver’s food! They opened up a new restaurant a block from my work so tried it out and the pasta was delicious 🙂

      Thanks Christine! Not that I don`t like Jamie Oliver, but in this case, Jamie is Jamie Fraser, a red-haired, broad-shouldered 18th Century Scotsman who lives in the mind`s eye of many, but is, alas, fictional. If you like historical/romantic/fantasy (and a whole lot more), please check out the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. This blog is all about recreating the food described in her novels….Theresa

    Mmmm, Outlander. I’m probably one of the 6 people you followed on Twitter. I’ve been to Scotland, loved the Highlands, and wish I could go on the Outlander tour. 😀 I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
