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.

Best made with fresh chorizo mince. Check out my recipe.
