Ham and Egg Cups

It’s been an age since I’ve posted on here – many tasty recipes to share, just coming up a bit short on free time (read: I’m now deservedly stingy about how I spend my free time, because it’s fleeting and precious and I’d generally rather be making memories with family and friends than tethered to…
