Re: buttermilk lake!

now there's an idea...never thought of that and as I make all of the bread in our house it would certainly use it up! :thumbright:

Re: does anyone have healthy snack bar recipes?

:wave: hello everyone! Now, I know I posted this originaly in 2008 but it has taken all of this time to come up with the recipe as seen in my local healthy bakery (Leakers in Bridport).

Our parents both worked, meals came from the freezer shop, the Good Life was regular viewing and the garden was full of rose bushes :? ...except for one small area where my mother planted a dwarf apple tree. Those were the bes...

We will have another lab eventually, probably a chocolate, but as yet it is still too soon. I think yo...
