Most Recent EntriesEasy Berry Ice Cream A Bit Of A Rant On A Slight Segway Oven Baked Vegetable Samosas Call To Action - SOS School Food Garden Crafts For Children by Dawn Isaac
Easy Berry Ice Cream This ingenious family recipe comes from Annabel Karmel's "You Can Cook" recipe book. While we've found that quite a lot of the recipes in the book need too much adult help, this one is brilliant. I like it because you don't need an ice cream machine, you don't have to keep opening the freezer every half an hour to scratch the ice crystals out and all that.

Whether you consider this a stalling tactic on his part or a valid process, we should still contribute. They can only use the information which is out there to format their plan, whether it is research evidence or us telling them our opinions. We can't complain about the outcome if we don't...
Garden Crafts For Children by Dawn Isaac I hope you won't mind me mentioning Chr***mas when it's still only November, but I have a great recommendation for a stocking filler for a child in your life. I'm not on some kind of commission or something(!) I just genuinely think it is a lovely book. Garden Crafts For Children is a fab book by Dawn Isaac, who is a garden designer and writer of the lovely kids gardening blog Little Green Fingers....
