2014 – A Snapshot

I’ve lost my writing mojo – again!

Can’t promise I will be back on a regular basis but will attempt to do a post a week and go from there.

Just finished stage one of Easter baking yesterday – Greek traditional stuff – stage two chocolate stuff tomorrow.

I can promise you that I will do an Easter post after the lunch spread on Sunday and include the baked goods – that is, if I’m not too baked myself…!!!

I tend to post on my Facebook page ‘Hel’s Kitchen’ a lot more but I don’t always include recipes, because I’m lazy like that.

Here’s what’s been happening in my kitchen over the last few months.

Of course there was Vodka…Lots of it…!!!

Meat was lacking in my diet so a Middle Eastern spiced meatloaf was just the thing! Lovely take on the old meatloaf.

Sometimes the berries sit on buttermilk or ricotta pancakes with maple syrup.

  1. All looks yummy including the makeover you’ve had! Really like the hangover breakfast, that’s what I need over the long easter weekend. And you can say pulled pork as many times as you like πŸ˜‰
