21 July 2017

Earlier in the month, I announced the new series I'm introducing to the blog, and that is 'The Rutland Blogger Recipes'. As a keen cook and baker, I've always enjoyed experimenting in the kitchen.

I asked the readers what they would like to see covered on the blog, and you guys said recipes and food ideas. So, I've launched 'The Rutland Blogger Recipes' - enjoy!

To begin, I thought as it's summer, why not share a quick and easy BBQ snack or dinner party finger-food idea that I love! Whether you enjoy experimenting in the kitchen too, or you'd like an idea for an upcoming BBQ or party, then this could be an affordable and easy-to-do recipe that suits you.
