    Thanks so much for the mention Caroline – really appreciate it! Gotta clear one thing up though… I’m Irish, the husband is American!!! 🙂

    I’m already a fan of The Humble Housewife and Val’s Kitchen is a good friend so thanks for adding even more people to my ever expanding list of food bloggers to torment myself with! I’m celebrating Paddy’s Day with chocolate and Guinness muffins and, as I’m a total lightweight they’ll probably have me on my ear! Happy St. Patricks Day.

    I’ve figured out why I thought you were American, Deborah. The recipes that you post on your blog are all dishes that I associate with the US. Have you noticed a theme yourself? Cinnamon Buns, Dinner Biscuits, Quesadillas, Muffins, Peanut Butter and Jam Cookies..!

    Caroline you have a point! 🙂 Right so… better make some stew tonight and some bacon tomorrow! 🙂

  9. We are lucky not to have rabbits here eating our veg garden, there don’t seem to be any around here. However you do get the added bonus of eating wild rabbit where you are! There were rabbits here at one time and in those days our neighbour put up a 4 inch high electric fence which he says ‘kept them out and gave himself great entertainment and satisfaction watching them get the message!’
