Apart from texts requesting lifts.… Continue reading Shizzle The 4-Year-Old Said…
That's them there; no lashings of maple syrup, no Greek yoghurt, no flourish of berries, just plain old porridge pancakes. By all means, if you have all of the aforementioned knocking around the kitchen then feel free to add them at will, I just don't want to scare anyone off who may be thinking "Christ,… Continue reading Fruit Smuggling 101: Mammy’s Bog Standard Banana Porridge Pancakes
