Miracles do not, in fact, break the laws of nature. C. S. Lewis

The title of the post means that I finally found a job! After a year and 9 months of searching I am now working regular hours and loving it! As such I will be taking a 2 week break while my body and mind adjust to the new schedule. During that time I will be cooking and prepping new posts so I have a small stockpile of posts built up for times when I am working more overtime hours and less time to cook. I will be back to my regular 2 time a week posting on October 2nd. I love my blog, and sharing recipes with everyone and I promise you that I have some great recipes lined up to share when I get back. As always if you have a recipe you would like to see converted please send it to me and I will work it into the rotation. See you all soon!

Caramel-Pecan Monkey Bread

165388_515350458063_4685435_nI found this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine a week or so before our wedding. As we had opted for a Honeymoon at home I decided to make this recipe for a special breakfast the morning after our wedding. It seems like a lot of work, and it is, but it is completely worth it! You can see this recipe on their website here. I have converted it for British measures.

1/4 c/60 ml plus 1 tbsp warm water

Calling All Recipes!

If you have a recipe you would like converted (North American to British, or British to North American) post the link or recipe in the comments and I will convert it for you. Unfortunately I am unable to convert any recipe that contains Melon (Watermelon, Honeydew, cantaloupe, ect) due to an extreme food allergy.
