Unfortunately the cold and flu season has arrived down under. My poor mum and dad got struck down pretty badly a few weeks ago by the awful lurgy and took a while to get over it. When it comes to fighting the nasty bugs, I'm all for natural remedies. I've been having lemon tea every morning all year and I really think it's one of the reasons I haven't been sick yet (fingers crossed).

Today I have another special guest for you - JJ from 84th & 3rd. JJ and I have been blogging friends for years and last year I finally got to meet her in person at Eat Drink Blog last year. It was way too short a meeting though. We must have a better catch up next time! JJ posts mouthwatering recipes and best of all, they're all healthy but I'm not talking boring health food oh no. There's nothing boring about chocolate peanut butter truffles or raw … [Read More...]
