I have had almost instant and undeserving success… View Article

A tummy coating before supplements not the delicious-first affairs of eggs, bacon, toast, pancakes, etc etc now relegated to once-a-week treats. Plus with… View Article

PRE SOCCER BREAKFAST

Yes folks: sausage, bacon, baked beans, toast, egg and griddled tomato. Yes, this was eaten by a teenage boy several hours before his soccer tournament.

Another Mad Hungry recipe–not an any night meal for me but still–so easy and slightly special for an easy entertaining option. Just get some fresh seafood and the rest requires fairly basic ingredients. A large salad, some bread and wine is all you need for a really great feed.
