Pretty well every top British chef has their own version of Sticky Toffee Pudding. You’ll love the combination of flavors and textures. Most versions of this recipe use Medjool dates which gives the dish great depth of flavor.

Shopping with toddlers is something entirely different. When they are babies, they simply get amazed with the new surroundings, all the bright lights, and the lively sounds.
