Moving house is not fun. In fact I read somewhere that it’s the third most stressful thing you can do, after death and divorce. Yep, that sounds about right. But I knew there was a light at the end of the tunnel of boxes when my pantry was unpacked and the recipe books were settled on the bookcase.
So it’s time to get my cooking mojo on in the new kitchen!
Everyone seems to love this simple slice and I’m always asked for the recipe. Which doesn’t surprise me considering I asked my friend Jodie for the recipe the first time I tasted it!
