Easy Chicken Peanut Curry

Easy Chicken Curry

The boys have been wanting to get a lot more involved with cooking during the lockdown. So Oskar helped me make this easy mild chicken curry.

Orange Potato Cake

Orange Flavoured Potato Cake

Like half of the rest of the country, we’ve been baking a lot during lockdown and trying out new recipes. I’ve always wanted to try out using mashed potato in gluten free baking, so I experimented by mixing and matching various different cake recipes to create a gluten free sheet cake flavoured with zesty orange.
