Sometimes I get so bogged down with stress or tiredness, that it’s easy to reach for the crisp packet or chocolate bar as an instant fix. I also have come to realise I have a terrible addiction to carbs and sugar, and I intend to break myself of it. But dammit, did you see my last recipe? Beetroot brownies, anyone? Read more
This was my gift to my Dad, on Father’s Day. I am too poor to afford even a card right now. Sorry, Dad. But nothing says ‘I love you’ like a well-prepared meal, right?
Yeh, lame excuse.
