Friday night pizza - part 3

Friday night pizza – part 3

It had to happen. A pizza party for one. Me, that is.

Lunch du jour

Christmas Cake ice-cream

Christmas Cake ice-cream

If you’ve ever wondered what to do with leftover Christmas cake (or pudding), here is your answer.  This ice-cream is unbelievable.  It’s like everything you wish for at Christmas on a spoon – smooth and creamy with a fruit and nut texture, a hint of spice and that boost of dark rum.
