Last week Elizabeth from Life on Hushabye Farm posted a pic on Instagram of her baked potatoes and I realised I hadn’t made them in ages. So at the weekend I made a blast of my Loaded Twice Baked Potatoes. I was glad to have them when I came home dejected from watching Munster crash […]
It’s Winter, so that means it’s time for a soup recipe. I fear however that this recipe Leek and Potato Soup is going to expose my weirdness. I’ve been making this Leek and Potato Soup for years and while it is delicious, even if I do say so myself, I was never completely happy with […]
