Quarantine Cooking – Easy Short Bread Recipe.

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last blog post. If I’m honest, this pandemic has got me feeling some type of way. I’ve been indoors for two months, and it’s made me realise how much I miss the little things – like going for a swim with my son or going to my besties house around the corner to nick food from her fridge 🙂

Baking through anxiety or uncertainty is nothing new, and Covid-19 has inspired us to eat more and bake more *I see all of you complaining about your waistlines this period – don’t worry, we are in this together* 😉

What started as a way to bond with my son while on lockdown has quickly turned into a hobby. I now enjoy baking – it’s therapeutic. I love the lingering smell it leaves around the house.

I’ve been trying a lot of easy recipes recently and you know I had to share them with you guys!
