In Memory. My Dad. My Hero.


In Memory. My Dad. My Hero. This is the hardest blog post I’ve ever had to write. I didn’t expect to write it now. Not today. Not this week. Not this month. Not even this year. My Dad survived so many incidents and accidents I thought he was invincible. His heart it appears decided otherwise. If you know me personally, you…

Bread…but not as you know it!


Bread…but not as you know it! Oh this is good! 🙂 Really really good! It’s not your fluffy white bread. It’s not your crusty topped loaf. It’s not a flat bread, nor a pitta, but this is good! 😀 There is no wheat, no gluten, no yeast, but this loaf is so tasty! If you’re gluten free, dairy free, yeast…

H = Happy Healthy Home


H = Happy Healthy Home This is day 8 of the A-Z Challenge and therefore the letter I did have a couple of ‘H’ recipes but I realised that for several posts now I haven’t talked much about ‘Life’ or ‘Health’ and this would give me the opportunity! Often unless something bad happens, we don’t stop and think about what…

Tomorrow is another day! Don’t stress the chocolate!


Tomorrow is another day! Don’t Stress the Chocolate! Well! Today hasn’t exactly gone to plan… not that I had a plan as such, but besides trying to catch a glimpse of the eclipse, that is so far all my day has achieved! Okay, so that is not strictly true! I had a phone call from a friend which lasted almost…

Go for a walk, get the bike out, do some gardening (lots of seeds can be planted from now onwards), take a ball to the park, try out those running shoes or dig out those dusty…

Healthy Snacks & Treats (DEGF). Swap that sugar!


Healthy Snacks & Treats Today here is something a bit different. Not a recipe as we don’t all always have time to be in the kitchen cooking up Blueberry Cinnamon Muffins or Oaty Chocolate Drizzle Yummies. Yesterday I found ‘just what I’d been looking for’ in the guise of some wonderful jars! Not just any jars! Screwtop jars with easy to…

Life Diet Health. . . have a quick check up!


Life Diet Health Something a bit different today! Although I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes, the initial idea of my blog was supposed to be offering advice on Life, Diet and Health! At this time of the year, especially in the UK many individuals have a post seasonal slump; people suffer mood changes because of the inclement weather; lethargy and fatigue set…
