 Well hello there everyone, I have been away for a long while, due to ill health mostly,
I have found out I have crohns and now getting back on my feet again, it wont ever go away but I am now coping with it better in my head and in my body, enough about that x

I have been busy but just not had the energy to do blog posts yet again I want to try to get going on doing them regularly now.

Here is a lovely aran jumper, that I finished a hour ago, cant do outside photos due to the rain, this jumper is hand knitted by myself, (Handmade by Lilacanglia on facebook if your interested) and took just over a hundred hours of knitting to complete, yes 100 hours plus, then a little bit more to sew up etc,
The wool I used is Stylecraft aran (worsted weight for those outside the UK), and a pattern the lady who ordered it sent me, its worked into a lovely warm soft Jumper.

This is a really easy dish to prepare, and it looks so darn cute! It is also a great dish to serve on a buffet table because each serving is completely self-contained and can just be picked up and popped on a plate.
1 20 ounce package pre-shredded hash brown-style potatoes
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 tablespoons flour
1 small sweet onion, coarsely grated
2 thick slices deli ham, chopped into small bits (about 1 cup)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 dozen eggs, scrambled*
chives for garnish
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F., and lightly spray a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Mix the first eight ingredients together in a large bowl. Spoon potato mixture into each prepared muffin cup until about 1/3 full. Gently press the potato mixture down in the middle and up the sides of each cup. Bake until golden brown, about 25-30 minutes. If the nests have puffed up too much in the center, scoop out a little with a teaspoon. Spoon a few tablespoons of scramble eggs into each nest and top with chives.
