I can’t believe we’re a good chunk into November already or that we are back in lockdown. Now really is the time to start gift shopping for Christmas though, get prepared and get organised. With that in mind I’ve pulled together a bit of inspiration for you all, hopefully you’ll find it useful.Continue reading Christmas Gift Guide 2020
On Thursday I headed off to my fave place to eat, Turtle Bay, with one of my bestest friends to enjoy a bottomless brunch. Now, it is very rare for me to get a day off from being mum and I do love a good cocktail, so as you can guess I was rather excited for the bottomless-ness of it all!Continue reading Turtle Bay Bottomless Brunch Experience
I’m not an ale drinker but the husband is and I have often bought him Hobgoblin because I like the cans. That and the fact he really likes the Hobgoblin Ruby. This Halloween, in keeping with the fact Hobgoblin is best sipped in the dark, they have launched a special Beer & Bugs Snack Pack and we got sent a mini version to try.Continue reading Hobgoblin The Unofficial Beer of Halloween

When it comes to Christmas flavours Pickled Walnuts are a real classic, but other than enjoying them with cheese an biscuits what can you do with them? They’re actually rather versatile and I love the mix of flavours in this Pickled Walnut, Potato and Thyme Frittata.
It’s a lovely light meal and great for using up any leftover potatoes from the roast. Warm, nutty, festive and perfectly satisfying it’s the perfect meal to enjoy on Boxing Day after all the excesses of Christmas.Continue reading Pickled Walnut, Potato & Thyme Frittata – Recipe
Prestige Hampers offer a wide variety of hampers for all occasions but I was recently sent one of their Luxury Christmas Hampers. The perfect way for you send someone a lovely and thoughtful gift or even just an amazing way to treat yourself and get set up for the big day.
The hamper came all boxed up and was delivered safely. From the second you open the box you can feel the luxury, from the large wicker hamper with leather fittings, to the wooden gift tag. That’s all before you even open it up, an when you do you are in for a treat.Continue reading The Perfect Christmas TReat from Prestige Hampers
I don’t often create recipes for my blog, I love cooking and I’m very crafty but I’m just not creative that way. I am, however, very good at finding ways (excuses) to combine my love of chocolate with a good dose of booze and my favourite way to do that is with my Very Grown Up Rocky Road.
It’s such a simple concept, quick and easy to make, but it’s utterly delicious and a really indulgent treat that is strictly for grown ups.Continue reading A Very Grown Up Rocky Road – Recipe
I don’t have to pack a lunch for L yet, he gets free school meals because he’s still little. So when it came to sending him off to Barracudas Activity Day Camps over Easter I was thrown!
He needed enough for a full day, it needed to be tasty, filling and ok out of the fridge. Two snacks, at least, plus lunch. I dropped him off at 9am and didn’t have to pick him up until 4.30pm. That’s a lot of time and a lot of food. Not even taking into account all the running around they would be doing.Continue reading Easy Lunch Box Fillers with Shaken Udder
