Easy Baked Camemberts

Looking through the June issue of Vegetarian Living magazine - Vegetarian Living I saw an article on the amount of food that is wasted in the UK. Apparently UK residents throw away £12 billion worth of food a year!!! Hard to believe that during the war their parents or grandparents lived on rations and wasted nothing.

We can polish our halos just a little bit and honestly say, we waste very little. We had a ripe Camembert in the fridge and Karen was determined to use it. She came up with a baked Camembert starter. It was yummy although it could have done with a touch less time in the oven as the cranberries were a bit too crisp.
