I popped into town to meet my best friend for a coffee and we decided to have a look around some book shops. I bought a new baking book which boasts 1001 recipes. I got home and flicked through the pages. “But where to start with 1001 recipes?!?” I wailed to Jim. I ended up texting my friend and asking her to pick a number between 1 and 1001. Then these cropped up. I probably wouldn’t have given them a go but they are delicious.
