Healthy Snickers Bars…. Being A 60’s Child…. Marathon Bars

A simple, healthy and fun blast back to my youth, the Marathon Bar, probably known to you youngsters as Snickers. This version sports no processed sugar and the minimum of cooking. A delicious layer of freshly made nougat using popped quinoa or rice, fresh dates and syrup for the caramel. All slavered in raw cacao. As you'll see from the pic, what fun that part was! Will keep in the fridge for up to 7 days......haha I don't think they'll last that long.........enjoy this epic, healthy and fun recipe!

Braised Beef in Barolo Wine ….. Brasato al Barolo……

Made with the famous Barolo wine of the Piemontese region, this beef dish loves a long bathe in the full bodied wine along with vegetables & herbs before being slowly cooked over a gentle flame. This gives the dish its richness and succulence, traditionally served with polenta......... It's worth the wait.....
