Lemon Meringue Slice

I found this recipe back when I was on maternity leave and watched Good Morning everyday on TV! I put it on my Pinterest and thought I'd make it if an occasion presented itself. Then my cousin made a comment that it was really easy AND delicious so I'd thought I would give it a go. If you like things that are a combination of flavours and textures, then you will love this! A nice fluffy meringue top, a smooth creamy lemon centre and a crunchy biscuit base. Also, it's waaaay easier than making a Lemon Meringue Pie, yet essentially tastes the same!

Beginner Knits: Infinity Scarf Pattern

Last year sometime I saw an advert on TV for a series called "The Art of Knitting". You could buy a magazine which came with instructions, a pair of knitting needles and some wool to start you off. The idea was that each week a new magazine came out and each week you complete a knitted square which by the end of the series could be sewn together to make a blanket. I decided to give it a go as I had previously done some knitting as a child but never took it up seriously as my mum lost patience teaching me (mostly due to the fact that I am left-handed and couldn't get the hang of doing everything backwards). Anyway, I am lucky enough to work with some very talented crafty people at my work, so they said they would steer me in the right direction. 

The first one...and a recipe for Banana Bread

Welcome! To my first post...I don't really know what to write! Maybe just that I've arrived...or been sucked into exposing my life for the world to see! The main purpose of writing this is really so I can share with other people things that I enjoy doing. I will mostly be posting about recipes that I have tried and made, crafty things I have creating (which at the moment is anything knitted), products I like and books I'm reading. 
So I guess this is it so here goes!
