In Praise of the Serving Hatch

My Grandma's house has a serving hatch in it, and I have always loved it. I love the passing through of delicious food, calling our for extra helpings and the way that it opens up a slightly darker room.

How wrong was I?! Not that I think that having children changes your style at all, I actually think it makes you home and style work so much better for you as having children adds a whole new level of functionality to your space.

Easter Tiffin

This is one of my favourite tried and tested recipes from my Mum - you  can't really go wrong with it, and its really simple so the perfect treat to get the kids involved with too. I usually make it plain but I couldn't resist adding some mini eggs too, because well, its the season!
