Belvedere – My illustrated children’s book
This blog will follow my journey as I attempt to become a better writer and a better artist. I will talk about the writing process, celebrate any milestones I make with my writing and post the odd review, as well as discussing art supplies and showing examples of my work as I (hopefully) improve.

Inevitably, I will also frequently whine about a lack of chocolate, or laugh about my dog doing stupid stuff.

I first came up with this recipe more than a year ago, while foraging for something, anything to eat because there was no quick and easy food in the house and I was too busy (or lazy) to walk up … Continue reading
