All Stressed Out and No-One To Punch; or How We Survived The Big Move!

Well, it’s official; we are now happily (and with HUGE relief) ensconced in our new home, our very first house! I was honestly starting to doubt we would ever see this day come about, as for years we have watched home values around our once-dumpy (and fairly scary) neighbourhood climb steadily into the stratosphere due…

Recipe Post: Potatoes Dauphinoise

Out of all of the recipes made for last Saturday’s family dinner, I have to say that this potato dish was my absolute favourite. I consider it taking scalloped potatoes to the next level.
