Baking with Cadbury Creme Eggs | #CremeEggHuntingSeason

Baking with Cadbury Creme Eggs #CremeEggHuntingSeason

One of my favourite things about Easter is Creme Eggs. Pretty much every time I go to the shop, I must buy at least one. I’ve decided that this year I’m going to stock up before they disappear from the shelves again! After all, #CremeEggHuntingSeason isn’t around for long, and they will be soon be hard to find…

It was only last year that I discovered baking with them, with these Scotch Brownie Creme Eggs. This year, I was armed with the task of recreating some different Creme Egg recipes and sharing them with my readers. I never realised all of the different things you could do with Creme Eggs! Read more

Apple, carrot & raspberry juice | Recipe

Apple, carrot and raspberry juice recipe.

I recently posted my thoughts on the Slow Juicer from Panasonic; this recipe is the first juice I have ever made. On first thoughts you may think – apple and raspberry, yes; apple and carrot, maybe; but mix them all together and it seems a bit of an odd combination. Raspberry juice isn’t one that is come across very often.

I can tell you though, it is delicious. The apple gives it a little tartness; the carrot a more savoury flavour; add raspberries, and it adds sweetness and makes it a beautiful colour! I almost didn’t want to drink it. All four of us loved it, and it’s a real thirst quencher. It is super super easy too! Read more

Coffee around the world

Coffee around the world

Coffee. This wonderful liquid is sometimes the only thing that gets me through the day! Wake up – coffee. Breakfast – coffee. Mid morning break – coffee. Lunch time – coffee. You get the gist. I will mostly drink an instant coffee during the day, but come night time I love to relax with a latte from my coffee machine – I do love a latte macchiato.

Through visiting coffee shops I do know that there are so many different types, but I never realised there was so many ways to drink coffee around the world! Coffee In My Veins has put together this really interesting infographic, showing how different countries make their signature coffee. Read more

Panasonic Slow Juicer | First Impressions

Panasonic slow juicer first impressions

I have loved testing out some great products from the Panasonic Kitchen over the last few months; the latest one I have been trying out is the Panasonic Slow Juicer. A juicer is something I have always fancied trying out; I love the fact that it leaves you with a super smooth juice but still contains all the nutrition from fruit & vegetables. There are so many combinations to try too; pure fruit juice, pure vegetable juice, or a mix of fruit & veg. The juice world is your oyster!

For rich-tasting highly nutritious juices..
You get rich, smooth juice filled with nutrition. You can also use the Frozen Attachment to make healthy desserts.

Our favourite five February

Once again, I’m back to being late with our favourite five – oops! I didn’t manage to get it written up by the end of the month, and March has been super busy so I’ve barely even turned the laptop on! I’m here now though, better late than never, right?

So, what were our favourite five for February? (That’s a lot of f‘s!)

Chocolate coffee ganache tarts | Recipe

Chocolate coffee ganache tarts

It’s been a while since I’ve made a tart, and it’s also been a while since I’ve made ganache (I could eat a bowl of that on its own…). The first thought that came into my head when I saw the chocolate coated coffee beans in the most recent Degustabox, was chocolate coffee ganache tarts – yummy. Using dark chocolate makes them very rich, but it also compliments the luxury of the coffee beans. The size of the tarts makes them perfect for a grown up party, or maybe with cocktails!

A family feast with Chicago Town – #NotJustForDinner

Chicago Town #notjustfordinner

Pizza. One of the most popular dishes for meal times in our house. I don’t have a favourite topping, I’m always changing my mind with what I fancy; but as long as it has plenty of cheese on it, I’m good! It’s usually my go to choice for family gatherings too; Jacob’s birthday last year involved pizza, and it’s also our traditional Christmas Eve dinner choice. We like to be different! 😉

And so do Chicago Town, which is why they have a challenge running at the moment daring people to use their pizza #NotJustForDinner! The Deep Dish pizzas are so versatile, they can be eaten in a whole variety of situations; just some of the entries so far include eating while playing family games, skateboarding, and even window cleaning!

January Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

January Degustabox

It seems like ages since I last welcomed a Degustabox into my house. I think it’s because the Christmas one arrived a bit earlier than usual and this one a little later; not that I’m complaining, I always love the arrival of a new Degustabox!

  • Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!
  • Receive your Degustabox every month filled with goodies.
  • All for much less than you would pay in the shops!

January’s box included quite a few brands I had never heard of, with some I will certainly buy again. I did enjoy everything in it though.
