Nothing If Not Resourceful

Last week I was presented with, what I and many others I’m sure, would deem to be a ‘Worse Case Scenario’ situation… I ran out of hummus! And being the somewhat lazy, but altogether resourceful person I am, instead of running to the Co-op, I decided to raid the pantry and produce my own tasty… Continue reading Nothing If Not Resourceful

Do The Matcha Shake 

Anyone who follows my Instagram knows I drink a lot of tea and coffee, but recently I have been enjoying the light, delicate flavours of Matcha, powered green tea.
