Hello everyone, I made this delicious Gluten Free and Dairy Free Cheese & Tomato Risotto for dinner the other week – it is also vegan. Tonight’s posts is way later than expected as I was in the kitchen making a strawberry trifle. Time got away from me and suddenly it is 10pm and I haven’t updated my website today.

It’s been a busy week – I had the day off work on Wednesday and went to get my first tattoo. It is a simple little row of black fine-line drawn planets. I decided to get it in the middle of my lower arm on the underside. I’m really happy with how it turned out and it wasn’t sore at all. Given all the surgery I’ve had it would have been funny if I had struggled with the pain of my tattoo.

Fingers crossed my new trifle recipe works out well and I can photograph it tomorrow. I’ll need to put a bit of time aside this weekend to add that and my new tiramisu recipe to the website.
