Brunch. What a beautiful word.  To me it conjures up images of bacon, and friends, and laughing, and copious amounts of hot tea. Just like a Dove shampoo advert, where I’d come into a posh restaurant, about to meet my equally glamorous friends with lovely swishy, shiny hair. I love brunch. It’s also just another way to eat two meals in one go, right?! Yum.

I’ve been on a bit of a wellness detox of late, in a bid to lighten my load (physically and mentally).  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

Baked Eggs with Spinach, Peas and Bacon

 

Baked Eggs

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.
