    1. Thanks 🙂 Did cringe a few times looking over old posts and was worried they’d be expecting more hot food but all seemed to go down well. Do you do anything to celebrate yours?

      P.S I tried your suggestion re: herbal teas – if you sweeten the tea with a little honey (I didn’t have liquorice, I used the Pukka “Morning Time” one which is rooibis based) a few cracked cardamom pods, pinch of cinnamon, then add some fresh sliced pear to warm through in the tea – makes a really nice mock-poached-pear dish on the go! x

      1. Our blog birthday happened in the middle of December so we ran out of time to celebrate! Maybe this year if it’s less hectic….cardamom and pear tea to go sounds inspired! I’ll certainly give it a try!
