My presentation skills are a bit poor but the taste makes each of these recipes worth trying
Keep Reading I will Keep Writing 


  1. Hi Tanvee - thanks again for sharing some recipe ideas - however, I will probably give these a miss as they will be a little too much carbohydrate for me ......

    However, I'm sure others will find them ok

    It's good to exchange recipe ideas and choose which ones are for us and which ones not


    All the best Jan

  2. I agree about the more carbohydrates in all these recipes...I usually eat eggs but Terence prefers oats so I was surfing around looking for different recipes that he would like :)
    I like the idea of exchanging recipes especially because I am so new to all's very good for me :)

  3. great recipes T!
    I dont do well with bananas, can I substitute it with something?
