I thought it was time to do something very girly on our Blog, let's swap recipes! I don't very often cook from a recipe I generally make it up as I go along, but from time to time I am inspired to try a recipe. With winter on it's way I thought it would be great to share one of my favourite recipes which we have recorded in our Family Favourites recipe book. So give it a try and see if you like it and why not add one of your favourite recipes in the comment box below.
