We all need a little tender loving care in our lives.
A touch, a kiss, a hug or a warm smile can do wonders to inspire us to carry on in this difficult world we live in.
To love and be loved; to hold and be held; to catch and be caught.
It’s what we all want is it not?
To feel as though we are something in the eyes of others and to be accepted where despair once reigned as queen.
To feel free without a chain or fly despite the rain.
Love in all it’s forms makes us feel alive.
So love, and be lovable!

After all that love writing I’m up for a lemon drizzle cake. This is one of my favorite recipes that was given to me many years ago. I now want to share it with you! I have many others in my ebook ready for downloading ‘Nigro’s Kitchen’ where you will find a great story about relationships around a dinner table intertwined within it’s easy to make recipes
Serves 6 – 40 mins cooking time
4 Tbsp Milk
225g Butter (softened)
275g Self-Raising Flour
225g Caster Sugar
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 Lemons (Grated Zest Only)
Pour all ingredients into one bowl and mix for 2 minutes on high-speed.
Place in a baking tin lined with greaseproof paper and bake at 180C (conventional) or 160C (Fan) for 40-45 minutes or until cake bounces back to the touch.
Drizzle: squeeze the juice of the two lemons in a frying pan and add three tablespoons of caster sugar and heat on low until melted. Once the cake is done, out the oven, still hot, and in the tin, prod the cake in many places and pour over.
Allow to cool before serving with thick cream and a generous amount of icing sugar and poppy seed sprinkling!
