    Your slices are some of my favorite ones. Like your husband, mine is the lemon slice. (My Nanna use to make it.)
    As you love slices so much you would love my Lolly banana & white chocolate slice. It is just delish.
    Keep making the slices. Yum yum.

    Why put these slices on for everyone to see without the recipes,

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Cheryl, to get the recipes you simply click on the image or title of the one you’re interested in. Unfortunately, if I were to put all of the actual recipes in this post, it would take people far too long to scroll down to find the one that they’d like to try. This way people can choose which slice/s interest them and click straight through for the recipe. This set up is designed to make it quicker and easier for people, certainly not the other way around. I’m sorry if you’ve found it that way. Have a lovely day. 🙂
