"Never give up on the things that really make you smile"

If I had to choose a city in the world that stay forever, that would perhaps be London. The last time I went to visit one of my favourite monuments: The Tower of London. You know that I love England and it's funny because the only time that I have not supported this city is when I lived there, but again, I can not visit it again and again.

I am passionate about the United Kingdom. Its streets, its customs and its desserts, one of my favorites is the crumble and is precisely what I bring you today. A delicious crumble ruibarbos oatmeal. It cannot be more british!
