Sausage Rolls

I, and us Brits in general, love a good picnic. Or a bad picnic. We’ll picnic even if the weather is a bit rubbish (which, in the UK, it is most of the time) and the food is a bit naff (soggy sandwich anyone?) But, it doesn’t have to be that way!

Pumpkin Pie

Halloween has become an increasingly bigger deal over here in the UK over the last decade or so, most likely because it’s such a big deal in the USA.
