Once again, I’m late to the GBBOBloggers2018 party. I only decided on what I was going to make last Friday, and actually made and photographed on Saturday morning before heading to Blog On Toys for the weekend! Bread week is usually one of my nemesis’, and because I didn’t have much time, I just decided to use a recipe from one of my books. (Which I should actually use more often – does anyone else have a mountain of them and never use them?)
I’ve been a really bad food blogger this year – I think I’ve only posted one recipe! I have blogged foodie reviews, but I’ve not really had the mojo for creating. I’m hoping now that The Bake Off is back, the mojo will return. I’m also happy to see that Jenny over at Mummy Mishaps has brought back the Bloggers Bake Off linky!
I never got around to joining in biscuit week, as the boys had just gone back to school and Noah was only doing two hours a day. But of course I had to join in with one of my favourite things to bake – cake week! I didn’t really fancy any of the other challenges, so I went with a tray bake. Nice and easy!
Cheese. That’s all somebody has to say to me, and I’m there. Add subscription box to that, and I’m all heck yeah, give me ALL the cheese! I’ve always been a great cheese lover and if there is ever a cheese board on a menu, that’s what I’m having. So when I was offered the chance to try out the Clwb Caws subscription from The Welsh Cheese Company, I grabbed it with both hands (quite literally, when it arrived!).
A subscription to Clwb Caws is the perfect way to ensure you have a regular supply of the very best Welsh cheese. Every month we hand pick four of our favourite cheeses, package them up and post them out to arrive with you on the second Wednesday of the month. The quartet of cheeses will always be varied and well balanced, and will weigh around 800g in total. Read more
Often seen as a guilty pleasure, Scotch eggs can also be a great on-the-go snack or protein-packed addition to a picnic. As well as protein, Scotch eggs are also high in choline – a nutrient that helps regulate brain and nerve function and keep energy levels high.
There are a fair few calories in these eggy snacks, too; but a great way to minimise preservatives and know exactly what you’re eating is to make your own – and it’s not as hard as you might think! Read more
