Baked Courgette/Zucchini Fries With Pomegranate Molasses And Yogurt Dip! 

 

Is it Friday yet? That’s exactly what my T-shirt says. This week seems a bit longer than usual may be because the little one is off nursery for the Easter break and I am trying to write a blog… well, some will say “wrong timing” or ” too ambitious ” but I do like to challenge myself from time to time. In fact, I am attempting to write this laying half way into a kiddie pop-up tent in her room while pretending, camp sleepover! 🙃

Anyway, today I am sharing a delicious yet healthy and light recipe with you!
