REPOST: 25 years in the quest for the perfect pizza

I get lots of requests on social media for some of my recipes so i’m republishing this article which was originally published in True Loaf magazine 10 years ago! If your do the maths then we have been making pizzas on a Saturday night for 25 years! For the last 15 years or so Saturday…

New pixel palettes

So last week I was going to Blog every day and here we are a week later and there have been not more posts! I really do like making a rod for my own back! However I’m pleased to say that my healthy Autumn campaign is going well! I’m still on track with Sober September…

Debbie's Dryathlon!

New start September!

So a shiny new month and once again new intentions for me as I again try and crack this menopausal weight gain and get back on track with getting more cardio exercise, healthy eating and kicking the old vino callapso. Way back in 2013 when I first did Dry January I found it really helped…

Blustery morning walk

I have got out of the habit recently of going for my morning walk and I woke up this morning realising just how much I had missed it! I don’t mind admitting that I was in a bit of a grump yesterday – it has not been an easy week and I was generally feeling…

Snow walk-10

A visit from the beast from the East!

I suspect like me you are very bored of hearing about the snow and the beast from the East! However as I type the big thaw is already well underway and it is feeling much warmer in our cold old house! Over the snow days we managed to get out for a few walk –…

The unveiling of spring

This week has been a mixed bag of weather. It started with the equinox on Monday which was cold and wet and miserable. But as the week has gone on the sun has taken over and slowly but surely things are warming up. As always I’ve been out walking every morning – taking the same…
