Plum & Ginger Flapjacks (and my Blog Birthday!)

Today marks the first anniversary of my starting my blog! I’ve had an amazing year doing this, and it’s been so much fun, so thanks so much to everyone who’s followed my blog over the last year and made it worthwhile – I love writing to you guys, and I really feel like I’m part of a community now, it’s so cool to receive emails from people saying they’ve used my recipes because I barely even knew what a blog was a year and a half ago, and now I have nearly 1,000 awesome followers :)

My first recipe was flapjacks, so I thought I’d make them again… Only they stuck to the bottom of the tin a bit because I forgot to grease it, so I only have two decent looking ones, and the rest is a really yummy mess of flapjack. Oh well. Here’s a link to my first ever recipe if you fancy a laugh, I can’t believe how much has changed since then!Β

It’s been a really great year, I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to read and follow my blog, just hoping I’ll have another good one ahead!

P.S. I’m back in London now, so things might calm down a little – although the last two days have been crazy, I went to a Bouncing Souls gig last night with my best friend (sustained about 12 bruises including a huge one on my ribs from when I crowd-surfed and got thrown into the sound deck thing… Yeah, I enjoy moshing out quite a lot…) and went busking in the snow today, which was amazing, Londoners are very generous when it’s cold!

  1. Breakfast is not that far back, but looking at this recipe made me feel very very hungry! A shame we are past plum season here in NZ – I might try it with persimmons (sharon fruit) when mine ripen in a week or two, and let you know hot that goes. :0) Thanks for dropping by and liking my post too.
    Take care
    Janet :)
