I am not sporty, I don’t really diet but I do care about my health (just sometimes a bit lazy there!). At the recent Speciality Fine Food Fair I met the lovely people from Chia Bia in Ireland. Their product is a seed called Chia […]

Mr R has a couple of days off so he is re-organising my larder cupboard!! He never cooks and never preps for the meal so he doesn’t really need to enter the larder!
“Oh look what I found!” He screams. “Yeah I know it’s there” I respond. And so it goes on. “Did you know we had these?” “Yes I knew” etc.

I drizzled about 1 Tbsp olive in as well and turned it on. In about 5 seconds I had a stunning autumnal coloured sauce which I heated up along with a pinch of salt and pepper and some chilli flakes, whilst the spaghetti was cooking.
I thoroughly enjoyed my simple lunch which enabled me to carry on working!
There was dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate and it remained like that for years. But due to a slight miscalculation in the Valrhona development laboratories there is now a NEW chocolate and it is BLOND! And just like me (blonde) it is lovely, […]
