This is my first blog post on my blog with the new theme and new name I like the look of this theme as it has some really cool features which I am still learning how to use but give me time and I will get there. All weekend, I have been itching to publish something but I need the help of my good friend before I am allowed to be set free and write. I have so many recipes to share that I decided to add one straight away just to see how it looked compared to the Yummly recipes. I do like the Yummly site as I still receive plenty of traffic from there so I am not going to stop “yumming”. I have added the “yummly bookmarklet” to my bookmarks toolbar so to try it out I have added a recipe for really quick Choc Chip Cookies today and if this recipe works I will add a Savoury Chicken dish which is cooked in the slow cooker tomorrow (that sounds weird as you don’t normally eat sweet chicken dishes – Hehehe).

This recipe is egg free, low in sugar and it can be made gluten free if you use gluten free flour.

Now it is back to the completing the new recipe book as the bakes I made last week were a big hit with the children, well most of the children, so I managed to take plenty of photos. I am really in the mood for Halloween now, so much so, I have allowed my husband to bring the Halloween decorations out of the attic. OooOOOOoooooo!!
