I have this weird thing where I very rarely eat a whole banana in one sitting. I know, weird right.

Not a lot in my eyes, or mouth, we are talking about food here. LikeContinue reading “Snacks: It’s Not All Fruit and Carrot Sticks”

American Style Fluffy Pancakes with Bacon and Syrup

There might be a particular day dedicated to using up all our bits and bobs in the kitchen cupboard, but pancakes are best enjoyed all year round and not always just for breakfast.
