It’s feeling colder, and darker and much more like winter today. Time to whip out some comforting recipes to brighten up your day just a little.
Yesterday, Bam Bam decided to polish off an entire bag of donuts in less than 5 minutes whilst I laid his brother down for a nap. I have to admire him for grabbing an opportunity with both hands….and filling them with donuts!
As you can imagine he spent the afternoon on a total jammy, sugary high and then promptly fell fast asleep an hour before he usually does. There is always a silver lining!
With the boys at nursery, and having some me time. I spent my morning with Bruce and Twiggy. What better way to spend some free time!
Garlic and Rosemary make such a good pair! And with this quick bread you can serve it up in under an hour. Perfect for supper with a bowl of soup on a cold evening.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, bicarb and salt together and then add the buttermilk and garlic butter. Mix to form a dough.
