Day 163 – Made Gnocchi

It's probably clear from looking through my new things list that I love food. I love eating it, but I really love making it.

A few weeks ago I tried the Too Good To Go app, and have had nothing but good results saving food from being wasted since. Yesterday I noticed my local organic supermarket… Continue reading Day 47 – Marmalade
