Apologies, dear readers. Thanks to a chest infection and laryngitis I haven’t cooked anything of interest for over a week, hence the silence. But, although I still sound like a horse I am finally well enough to contemplate the cookery books again. So I shall be back tomorrow, catching up with some blogs I hoped to post last week and renewing my acquaintance with my favourite reading material. I am so delighted to have my energy and appetite back.
