Leftover Pastry Banana Nutella Pinwheels

My favourite way of making quiches is with puff pastry and I always have some left over.

Strawberry & Coconut Milkshake

Having over-looked some strawberries in the fridge last weekend and feeling under pressure to use them as soon as possible I decided to make a milk shake with some of them.
