Easter is right around the corner and if you’re like many people, the ideal way to spend it is with your family and friends, enjoying a delicious meal. In our hectic lifestyles, we rarely have the time to enjoy a home cooked meal, making the holidays even more special. Taking the time to cook for your loved ones is a perfect way to show them how much they mean to you.
Enjoy! And please do tell us what you think of it. We shall be posting more recipes soon.

A truly fantastic achievement, the Mission:Explore Food crowd-funded project has reached its goal of raising £15,000 from the general public. Tonight it has been achieved, a tremendous testament to the quality and importance of this project. But just because the target of £15,000 has been reached does not mean that if you haven’t signed up to the project yet that you can’t. Mission:Explore Food won the PleaseFundUs Creative Grants Award so please join us and help develop the project further. Thank you all for your support. http://www.pleasefund.us/projects/missionexplore-food

Wondering what to get this Christmas for the person who has everything? Remember the children’s classic you read a thousand times when you were young?
What if Goodnight Moon was about saying goodbye to another Moon? Say goodnight to Keith, his drumsticks, his pile of sick, and more. Goodnight Keith Moon is a hilarious parody of the Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd children’s classic Goodnight Moon, this book will appeal to fans of rock music and every parent who has read it to their children. Classic rock aficionados won’t get fooled, they’ll spot a busload of Who references, from the pinball game in the corner to the ghost of Cass Elliott.
Living up to our name at Can of Worms Goodnight Keith Moon is a Word of Mouth Press release: Books Worth Talking About – tell a Friend!
This is the word of mouth from The Huffington Press:
“Everyone’s favorite children’s book about a notorious drummer who died of a drug overdose. Wait, that’s not what it was about? eel, authors Bruce Worden and Clare Cross have updated the classic story to revolve around the death of The Who’s Keith Moon with hilarious results. Brimming with rock references.”
