Nicola Gavin’s Chocolate Cake

Nicola Gavin’s Chocolate Cake

When Rosemarie, my sister-in-law sent me this recipe I was taken aback!  Why would she send a choc cake to be included in a recipe blog for cancer patients!  Ro informed me it has  been a great dessert/ cake in her family for many years. When I thought for a while I said yes it is suitable. Chemotherapy may cause you to lose a lot of weight or you  maybe be after heavy surgery and calories are essential to get you back to your usual healthy weight.

Helen's Lazy Sunday Pasta Dish

I often cook this dish on a Sunday evening after being away for the day. It's quick and easy to prepare and cook. It beats the old 'take away' in terms of nutrition and flavour, in my opinion! It should only take a half an hour, less than the time the take away is delivered to your door and cheaper too!
