News Hub Creator

Christmas is twenty days away! I can hardly believe 2022 is ending and honesty? Good riddance for bad rubbish. I can't wait for the year to end and I'll be eating good until it ends!

I love pie! I'm a South African so naturally I've been a fan from a young age. But I also love making my own and have many variation that only require store bought puff pastry and a little imagination. I use Today brand but any brand should be fine to use.

Without further ado! Let's get into these little parcels of joy!
