This Christmas, I’m going to entirely responsible for cooking Christmas dinner for me, my mum, my dad and my brother. I cook a full roast dinner regularly but there’s something about Christmas dinner needing to be special and go perfectly.
Over the past month I’ve been cooking regularly to try out a few new recipes for Christmas day, and these are two that I’ll definitely be going for on the big day. All of these recipes are for four people, but you can multiply these up for as many people as necessary. Also heads up to Jack for trying to take a photo for me…I need to train him up in the New Year (but we were too hungry to retake).
December means that all the coffee shops have their festive drinks and Christmas markets are in full swing, and at both of these places you find a wide variety of hot chocolate. My personal favourite is a Baileys Hot Chocolate, as the addition of this creamy liqueur makes it oh-so indulgent.
I usually grab one of these at a Christmas Market (Leeds Market always does amazing ones that aren’t crazy expensive) but this year I decided it would be fun to make one myself, and it’s super easy!
It’s officially September which means it’s Autumn, and it also means the best food is coming. Autumn means out with the barbecues and salads, and in with the stews, roast dinners and all of the comfort food.
And one of my favourite comfort foods is Rice Pudding. Yum!
I like to think that I’m a reasonable cook (styling my photos not to much, but I can cook) and I’m fairly open to trying new things. When I was sent over a few goodies from Odysea I knew I had to get to searching for the perfect recipes to match them.
Today I’m sharing with you a dip and a drink, perfect for your summer barbecues (which you’ll hopefully still get for a few more weeks!).
In the last month or so, I’ve received a lot of food in the post. My family is absolutely loving it, but it’s getting difficult to review because I just can’t get through it all! Therefore I’m going to start reviewing food in posts once a month rather than a post for every single product. It’s just getting too much for me!
Today I’ve got healthier chocolate options, crisp alternatives and an easy lunch box snack to share with you, so I best get into it pronto!
You know when you get an email from a PR company about an opportunity and then you sort of keep forgetting about it? Well huge apologies to Jess at MCG PR because this has been a long time coming. Like, seriously long.
Today I want to share with you some desserts that my mum has been loving (guess who ate them all before I got the chance). My mum is currently on Weight Watchers and we’ve been trying a lot of recipes from the magazines and books, but she’s been stumped on the sweet treat option. However, Weight Watchers have introduced some Iced Desserts* which are the perfect treat when you’re watching what you eat.
