What's new?!




I have made a little change to one of my recipe sections this week-"Brunches & Lunches" is now renamed "Breakfast, Brunch & Lunch" as I have already added & am planning to add more breakfast dishes in the future. 

This weekend I finally added a recipe that I have had for quite a while but for whatever reason didn't get around to including before. My Malted Banana Milkshake is easy to make, just throw it all in a blender & it's done!





Granola is delicious yet can be quite expensive but did you know how easy it is to make yourself? My Cinnamon & Raisin Granola is around 23p per serving & you can use my basic recipe & make it to suit your own tastes!
