The best Shakshuka? Hell YES! This is smokey rich and unctuous!
This is one of those fabulous meals to cook and enjoy sitting out the back yard with a book, a cuppa and a whole lot of time! Haha! That has now made me realise how long it has been since I have actually had time to sit and do anything but work. The last week has been 16+ hour days of writing and editing and I feel like I am finally starting to catch up.
