#FoodShareFriday - Bake Gnocchi with tomato, bacon and mozzarella.

I love food. Its one of my favourite things. In a effort to become better at cook I decided to embark on #FoodShareFriday with Kim.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and knew immediately that I would love it. Its so simple to make. Its my favourite type of meal. Its heartily, warming and above all comforting. 

I have altered the recipe slightly but only replacing some of the ingredients with more slimming world friend food (more on that topic later!)

Welcome...

Hi everyone,

Just a few quick email to let you know that this will be where I now live (in the world of the internet, not physically obviously!) and to show you my wonderful new blog design.

The lovely, talented, amazing Hayley from teapartybeauty tweeted that she was looking for Guinea pigs for her new blog design venture.

I jumped at the chance as I am totally useless at design. I gave her total free reign over the design. All I asked was that it was simple.

And as you can see the layout and design is pretty amazing!

If you are looking for a blog overall you should really check Hayley's design page HERE.

She also has a a giveaway to win a Custom Blog design running at the moment.

Now, what are you waiting for.... GO GO GO...

PS.. I would love it if you would follow me. You can find my Bloglovin link to the right!
