You will just have to make it & decide what to call it yourself!!

I saw this recipe on Bon Appetit, it is one of their BA’s Best. There are a lot of ingredients in this recipe & I had most of them at home. I did have to substitute some things.

So this Sprinkle Birthday cake was exactly what I wanted to make & eat!

I’m not sure if you all knew about the Robin Hood flour recall. It was for the 10kg bag of flour & it was a month or so ago.

I assume that The flour sold under other brand names is produced in the … Continue reading Flour Recall
Brussel Sprouts are not my favourite vegetable by any means. Sometimes if they are roasted & seasoned with maple syrup….haha….I can eat them! But I do like them raw in this salad. Paired with Kale, this is so healthy & fresh.

I found a bag of cooked shredded chicken in my freezer from a chicken soup I made recently. Since I love chicken pot pie & shepherds pie, why not combine the two but making it healthier by omitting the pastry shell from the potpie & the potatoes from the shepherds pie? Good idea? I think so!
