As a disease that has affected both my grandmothers (thankfully both in later life) this research is something that I am particularly interested in. While the research is in its early phases, by eating more foods rich in B vitamins – what is the worst that could happen? It may have no affect on memory, but it’s still good for you!

I’ve always loved a fresh cream strawberry tart, topped with that gloopy sweet glaze and fresh strawberries (that haven’t been frozen first).
When looking for Strawberry tart recipes getting the proper glaze was the hardest part, as they are almost always listed as jam / preserve based glaze. This is not what I had from local bakeries growing up, and was never going to replace my Tesco strawberry tart habit!
To start off if you are in the UK – don’t panic! Mother’s Day has already been and gone for 2013. If you are based in the US and you haven’t got a gift yet – feel free to panic!
But I am here to help, if you are still looking for some last minute ideas for gifts. Here’s my top list:
A Camellia Plant, every couple of years my Mum would ask for a Camellia as a gift for Mother’s day. At the time I never got it, why would you want a plant? Games, make up, pair of shoes – that I could understand. However as I have started to grow a little older I have started to see the appeal.
I have one in my garden and it’s the first non-spring bulb plant to flower every year. That blast of high impact colour is so cheery, it makes me hugely happy!
I love that even when it’s really windy, which essentially rips the heads of the flowers, you end up with beautiful large pink petals covering the lawn.
