Meat Free Mondays - 7 Recipes for the Week Ahead (4 April 2016)

Happy Monday everyone. Another eventful week. It was my birthday last week, although I never got around to celebrating it or going for my special treat as my poor wee boy had a horrible sickness bug that made him very poorly indeed. However a few days later and he has bounced back and is having a few fun filled days with his grandparents.

The featured photo this week is the birthday cake I made to take into my work. It's my go-to chocolate cake recipe. It was a little heavier than usual, as I'm struggling with my new oven, but it was still moist and chocolate overload in the best kind of way. I filled it and topped it with chocolate buttercream and then finished it with praline seashells. I offer you are virtual slice to celebrate with me my friends.

So now it's time for me to share another seven amazing recipes to help you plan your week ahead.
