When Breakfast Tribes Go To War! Which One Are You?

Breakfast tribes

Breakfast is well-known to be the most important meal of the day. Well, it’s also one of my favourite meals of the day. You know, when you haven’t eaten all night, and you’re just so looking forward to getting that first piece of food in your mouth! Being a Slimming World target member I can still enjoy a whole array of breakfasts; cereal, fruit, yogurt, toast, pancakes, bacon butties, “fry” ups. You name it, it can almost definitely be made Slimming World friendly! But, did you know that there are breakfast tribes, as recently identified by Milk&More?

Peanut-salted caramel Millionaire’s shortbread | Recipe

Peanut-salted caramel Millionaire's shortbread recipe

Who has been watching Great British Bake Off this year, now it’s moved channels? I think I was always going to continue watching it; obviously it was going to be different due to the new panel, but I’m glad they kept the same format. I still love it just as much!

Anyway, this is the first week I’ve managed to join in with, for the bake along this year. The first week I was on holiday, and then I’ve just been so busy. But when I saw it was caramel week, I had to join in and make something with salted caramel – one of my favourites! So I bring you this peanut-salted caramel Millionaire’s shortbread

Homegrown Cuisine: The Importance of Knowing Where Your Food Comes From

Homegrown Cuisine The Importance of Knowing Where Your Food Comes From

Nowadays we’re more disconnected to the sources of our food than ever. The growth of supermarkets means that we choose convenience over quality and often don’t have a clue where the products we’re buying were grown, how those involved in the production process are treated, or what additives, artificial colours or pesticides are used on them before they reach our plates. So why not start taking matters into your own hands and producing more of the food that you consume from in your own home. Of course, you’re not going to be able to make absolutely everything you consume yourself. But small steps are positive. Here are a few ideas to get you started. Read more

August Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

August Degustabox

The August Degustabox was along the theme of back to school. None of the products in our box were actually used for school though as the box arrived just before we went on holiday, so we took it with us! There were some quite exciting products in this box; some I’d come across before and some I hadn’t.

  • 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!

So what was inside the August Degustabox?

Our August favourites | Mazes, bear hunts, and a holiday

August favourites

The month of August seems to have whizzed by in a blur! I think it’s because I tried to get lots of work, some more fun in, and the school shopping finished before we went on holiday at the end of the month. When we came home earlier this month, it was only three days before the boys went back to school and I didn’t want to be rushing around.

I could just include everything we did on holiday in this post but then there wouldn’t be much room for anything else! So, I’m going to write about our holiday adventures separately. There is food involved, as usual, and some summer holiday fun.
