OK…I did make this recipe up slightly, however they went down so well…and my guests have been asking me for the recipe….. So from memory it goes something a little bit like this….. Red Onion & Pancetta TartletsMakes around 24 Mini Tartlets (You can also make these minus the meat for a veggie option…I used the red onion mix and put some Red Leicester cheese in the mixture for my veggie guest a
THE APRON. Pronounced [ey-pruhn]…. …. This word is actually really quite amusing me by now, as I have spent all day researching and talking to myself about them… literally!(I could actually see the puppy rolling his little eyes at me every time I rambled on at him about them hehe!)

I have been having a lovely email conversation lately with a local businesswoman who owns a clothing range called Trash Chic, where the lovely lady (Who calls herself Lady Fen – another Cambridge girl with an alter ego…I LOVE IT!!) believes that clothes are FUN!….And her clothing range really is! She creates clothes from cast-offs and gives them a new lease of life in the form of some very exciting items! C
This week is supposed to be the most depressing week of the year…. Monday was apparently the worst day of the week…. making people feel low, and unwell and generally miserable (Who found this out and decided this was official enough to be newsworthy, I personally feel, is an idiot with too much time on his or her hands! hehe)……It, admitedly, was heavy and dark with rain in sunny Cambridge on Monday mor
Every time I go to my bookshelf to look for something quite specific, I always annoy myself at just HOW MANY cookery cooks I actually have to peel from the shelves and onto the floor to get to the one that I need!
