It's a toughie. In the kitchen I am rarely just cooking. There is usually also some tidying, cleaning, laundry and conversation also taking place. And often a toddler driving a plastic car into my legs.
Who doesn't love pizza? It's one of the great joys in life, and with such a wide range of available styles and toppings it's easily one of the most versatile foods around. But this time, we're taking the classic pepperoni pizza and giving it a twist.

The March wind may blow but wild garlic works as well in a dumpling as a sushi style wrap.
I wasn't really cooking, I'd lost faith in baking (reinforced by a couple of cake failures) and there seemed to be no hope. It would be a bit of a stretch to say that this recipe saved me, but it did reinvigorate something in me.
