I have started making our own museli – it is so tasty, and nice to know what I’m putting in as well.  I use Jamie Oliver’s Granola from Ministry of Food recipe, making small tweaks to make it my own. I start with four kinds of nuts: walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts and brazil nuts; 75gm of

The raspberry bushes in my garden have started to fruit, abundantly!  Every couple of days we’re going out and picking a container full – and they are good too.  I’m loving having fresh raspberries from my garden on my cereal each morning.
