Pumpkin Pie French Toast

Sorry to keep going on about pumpkin but having spend this season in the US in the last few years I got  into all things pumpkin and now associate them with autumn. And after making the chewy pumpkin bars the other day I had some pumpkin puree left over. Some of it was put into pumpkin […]

Belgian Waffles

Recently I went to Belgium for a few days, first I went to Bruges and then to Antwerp. I really liked both cities, for different reasons.
