The Beauty Of Nature

As a treat and birthday present my sister took me to lovely peaceful place (area) called Grafham Water in Cambridgeshire, finally getting round to blogging about it. I am someone who loves parks/country parks, lakes and beaches something so tranquil about them, instantly calms me and relaxes me. My sister knew instantly this would be perfect for me to get my camera out and take some great photos. This was well needed specially as been cooped up since collapsing, the fresh air never felt so good.

Are you the same, do you like places like this?

Cookies With A Healthy Twist

It's been awhile since I've blogged due to health reasons, but I won't get into it in this blog post. Some time ago I baked, not baked in forever and whilst having access to Mum's kitchen that has everything, it gave me great chance to try out recipe I found through a blog who had the link of the full recipe.

Ingredients: Self Raising Flour (wholemeal)
                  Table Salt
                  Ground Cinnamon
                  Lemon Juice
                  Maple Syrup
                  Bicarbonate Soda
                  Baking Powder
                  Raisins (seedless)
                  Instant Oats

I altered the recipe slightly instead of using banana, I put in Mango instead. Turned out pretty good, and most importantly my mother loved it, as my Mum is good at cooking&baking, so was happy when I got the thumbs up from the family. Needless to say the cookies didn't last long, I've already been told I must bake again soon, oh dear, what have I have started......

PS- Here is the blog, that gave me the idea. And the link to the original recipe.
Next time I may have banana instead, see how that is.
