  1. O my gosh! Being a Brit girl, I always anticiapte going to the Brit shoppe an hour and a half away. I tried these quite some time ago and I think it's just about time for another go! THNX for the recipe. YUMMY!!!!!
  2. Ohhhhhh!! Bad Bad Bad, Real comfort food. These are wonderfull, we had them for Sunday breakfast, a real special treat!! Used a lovely sweet Spanish onion and spicy bangers, (almost as good as bangers and mash, well maybe even better.) DH had an egg with his and I just slathered the butter in. Brought back good childhood memories. Would love to have these often but I know we will have to wait for special occasions. Thanks for sharing


This is a picture of me and my husband in Portugal, climbing up above the clouds with our bikes. Right now we are travelling around the world on our bicycles, so I only pop onto Zaar occasionally, when internet connections and time allow me to. If I don't reply to a message about one of my recipes, now you know why! Our trip may take several years so if it's urgent, it's probably better for you to post in the forums ;) Good food is really important to me -- I am happy to pay extra for food that I feel is produced in a sustainable and ethical way and always try to eat using seasonal produce. When we were in the UK we rarely shopped at supermarkets, trying instead to favour small producers, although we were very lucky in that we lived in London and there was lots of choice. We also were fortunate enough to have a weekly organic veg box delivered to our door, filled with so many lovely vegetables for very little money. It really opened my horizons in terms of the variety of vegetables I eat. If you're in the UK, check out Riverford for a box supplier as they're amazing! When I'm not eating I love to take pictures and travel with my husband. <img src="">
