Food Resolutions and Bernard Matthews Pasta Arrabiata Recipe

Every New Year people make resolutions about all sorts of things but ones that crop up all the time are to work on a healthier lifestyle and diet. This year I haven’t really made any formal resolutions apart from our annual Bucket List but I have been looking at our diet, the way that we manage meals at home and the types of food we eat. We have always cooked…

Making Maltese Timpana {Pasta Pie} Recipe #ExpediaWorldOnAPlate

A couple of weeks ago Expedia sent us a hamper of Maltese food and drink that have helped us really submerge ourselves into the culinary style of Malta. The hamper included so many foods and delicacies that we hadn’t tried before. Expedia asked us to create a dish inspired by Malta and that’s where my research began. With the hamper, and the internet, as inspiration I started planning a family…


Carte D’Or Christmas Pudding Sundae

Last week I was sent a really lovely delivery from Carte D’Or – everything I needed to create a Christmas Pudding Sundae! Now, I love a pudding. I also love Christmas. So the idea of this sundae was mind blowing to me and I couldn’t wait to give it a go. We followed the Carte D’Or Christmas Pudding Sundae Recipe and it couldn’t have been easier. Here’s the Carte D’Or Christmas…


Winter Refreshers with Robinsons Squash

We drink so much Robinsons Squash – and the children will often have it heavily diluted as a treat too. Hubby and I don’t drink much water on a day to day basis so squash is our way of drinking enough throughout the year. But Robinsons Squash is so much more versatile than purely adding water. For a long time now we have been using it in different ways, to…


Christmas Food Traditions – Maple Glazed Pigs in Blankets Recipe

Plus, you can have all your favourite things on one very full dinner plate! When Waitrose got in contact to share with me some food traditions from around the world I started to think of what…


Creating Festive Cocktails with Aldi

Aldi challenged us to create some festive cocktails using their great range of spirits and I don’t need much of an excuse to have a cocktail, although I haven’t created them myself before! In the end I couldn’t decide between gin or vodka for a cocktail so instead I created two similar cocktails that for me have the flavours of the festive season – orange and cranberry! I had to…


Butterfly Cakes Recipe – Baking with Clover

I absolutely love baking easy fairy cakes and make them quite often since perfecting my never fail cupcake recipe but I have somehow got to 31 years of age without making Butterfly Cakes! So I knew that the time had come to make them. I used that same tried and tested recipe but with the addition of butterflies on top – and the children couldn’t have been more excited at…
