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!

Where do you live?

I came across this  folk tale this morning on  a Blog that I was reading as I sipped my early morning tea in bed.  It is very pertinent at the moment so I thought that I would share it along with some of my recent morning walk pictures taken on the out skirts of our…

Morning walk 30th June

Morning walk – the last day of June

Goodness me it the end of June already so that means that half the year has gone! After a busy day yesterday with two photography jobs I completely forgot to put my mobile phone on charge this morning so when it came to my morning walk I was faced with the prospect of going out…
