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. I am still learning how to use the theme 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. The Yummly site produces plenty of traffic 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. If this recipe works I will add a Savoury Chicken dish which is cooked in the slow cooker tomorrow.

Now it is back to the completing the new recipe book. Last week’s baking was a big hit with the children and I managed to take plenty of photos. I am really in the mood for Halloween now. I have allowed my husband to bring the Halloween decorations out of the attic. OooOOOOoooooo!!
