My name is Lara Flanagan and ‘My Notes From….’ is my baby and the culmination of a glorious journey that has involved a long and winding road. I am a plant-based recipe creator, who is obsessed with taking photos and waxing lyrical. I live in a little cottage with a rambling garden with my twins Archie and Rissie, my two dogs Kevin and Rosie and an ever-increasing menagerie.
