fry up in a cup easy breakfast

fry up in a cup

I do love a full English, but obviously isn't something you can indulge in too often, so here's another way to get your bacon-mushroom-toast-egg fix. You just need some little ramekins, darioles or if you're not middle-class, teacups.

I've revived an old habit of mine: devouring biographies. My local library has seen a lot of me lately, as I've read stories from all walks of life, Ken Livingstone to Steve-o, Chris Evans to Keith Floyd. One that's stayed with me is Antonio Carluccio - A Recipe for Life. I picked it up as a fan of his food and TV programmes. I wasn't prepared for the vast scope of his life, from growing up the station … Continue Reading ››
