I’ve been spending a lot of time in London recently. I’ve got so much to share with you – all coming soon! There’s the preview of the wonderful new exhibit at Kensington Palace “Diana – Her Fashion Story” and a behind the scenes tour at the iconic London department store, Fortnum and Mason. Fortnum and Mason have been suppliers of provisions and luxuries to everyone from generation upon generation of the Royal Family to Florence Nightingale and Charles Dickens. Oh, and to me. I love a good visit to Fortnum and Mason!
Look what I found when I visited Kensington Palace last week.
People had left sweet little gifts for the new baby prince. There was such a lovely atmosphere at the palace, it really was wonderful.
Our weather has turned very cold and grey again so I’ve been making lots of comfort food.
This Honey and Garlic Chicken is full of flavour, and spring veggies make it taste lovely and fresh.
I love the convenience of these Sweet and Spicy Short Ribs. You can make them in the slow cooker a day or two before you need them for quick last minute meals. Their flavour improves with keeping and they taste even better after a day or two in the fridge.
And for an easy, comforting dessert with a nod to spring, you can’t beat this Strawberry Pudding Cake.
