F is for Food Revolution Day 2015


I love Food Revolution Day and the aims of the movement. Unfortunately this year the three foot cooks and myself didn't get time to participate on the Friday. The girls' school had other celebrations planned for the day and by the time we got home we were all really tired.

Oat & Raisin Cookies

I didn't want to miss it completely though so we went ahead and made the Oat and Raisin cookies on the weekend. Jamie Oliver's original recipe is gluten free but since we don't have any food intolerances in our house we made the cookies using regular flour.
