Could life get any better…..”No really I ask you” Well the answer is probably…..YES!
As for many things in life its those simple luxuries that put a smile on our faces and as the cost of living requires much self-control its clear to see that our home is our castle and might I say my favourite motto “All good thinks come from the kitchen”.
As I have realised in life that my dietary needs include many of natures gifts, like honey thanks to the bees. Chocolate thanks to the cacao bean that grows on a tree and various other things like nuts in particular almonds and hazelnuts the precious what amber that is milk and a touch os salt.
These are all the ingredients I need to make my favourite spread…..Hmmm funny that!
