what I just had to blog about today started with me watching Fringe on Netflix. Walter Bishop is a little obsessed with food and in one episode got bought some apple fritters. this thing was HUGE but looked yummy so I went on a hunt to see if I could find the recipe, and came across this blog post "A face full of fritter" written by a really friendly Amy. :o) after a few comments back and forth I decided to put my twist on her recipe and made Pear fritters! (only cos I didn't have any apples!!)
