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…

Herby cheese scones

Herby cheese scones

You can’t beat a good scone!! I’m particularly partial to a cheese one – there’s something so lovely about their soft warm cheesiness dripping with butter! This is a very straightforward recipe but with the addition of a lovely herby mixture that just adds a top note to the flavour. My favourite is a pizza…

Walking pixels: 30 April

After the awful weather of late this morning was sublime.  Warm,  sunny, the sky larks soaring.  I also saw my first swallow of the spring but I’ve yet to hear a cuckoo.  Today’s images are processed with a photoshop  action that I’m refining at the moment which will hopefully be available very soon for download.

Walking pixels: 26 April

After the thunder and lightening and torrential rain of yesterday, today has a more sunshine and showers feel about it.  There was quite a lot of blue sky for my walk this morning – and more than the odd puddle.  It seems to be warming up a little bit too – but not quite enough…

April showers

Walking pixels: 24 April

Yuk what horrible weather we are having at the moment. Rain, rain and then more rain!  Undeterred I strode out for my walk this morning – as you can imagine there were no Blue Skies today – just grey and gloom.  Still I managed to fire off a few quick pics on my mobile and…
