We reviewed an Aldi Ambiano Omelette Maker a few years ago and it’s still one of the most popular posts on this website and one of our handiest small kitchen appliances we’ve ever used. You can see the double omelette maker review here. Non stick omelette makers are so easy to use with non stick plates, they’re easy clean and so quick at making perfectly fluffy omelettes.

But, I get asked regularly what our favourite omelette maker recipes are. The answer is simple – any omelettes that you’ve usually made in a frying pan will work in an omelet maker. So, the options when it comes to cooking fluffy omelettes at home are limitless. It’s so easy to create the perfect omelette – especially with the non stick coating. No butter, oil or cooking spray needed and easy clean cooking.

I love pudding and I love ice cream although I have only ever eaten ice cream from the tub, a cone or a bowl – nothing adventurous! The most adventurous would probably be ice cream sandwiches with a layer of peanut butter and fudge sauce! So I thought I would make ice cream cakes. This recipe I just threw together but I will be doing variations in the future – it’s pretty good!

The children really enjoy it too and you can amend the recipe easily to change flavours too by using things like mint chocolate or caramel sauce, a different flavour chocolate spread or orange essence instead of vanilla.

How to make Pumpkin Puree

Pumpkin Puree

At this time of year there are pumpkins everywhere and as much as I love to carve them I also love to cook with them. But, the first year that I bought a pumpkin I made the mistake of peeling it, chopping it and boiling it before making it into puree – thinking that it would need to be like baby food to add to things.
