This is a brilliant recipe for adding a little spice and fruit to your Easter baking. I like the recipe as it’s a subtle drop of spice and yummy currants, the decoration is fun for the children and you can have these finished off within the hour. Isla enjoyed decorating the biscuits and eating the chocolate icing too, who wouldn’t? Dr Oetker have many Easter recipes online if you want to try some Easter baking with the children this weekend.
This is a great recipe for a grown up alternative! The kiddies had chocolate spread, banana and also a little strawberry sauce. Mummy’s favourite is lemon and sugar. Daddy loves Bailey’s and I thought this recipe would be right up his street – especially with the added banana’s and walnuts. This is a fantastic recipe for any dessert, a great one to show off if you are hosting too.
We all know that certain vitamins, minerals and nutrients are good for us. Most of us get the majority of these nutrients through a healthy, balanced diet. However, you can also supplement some of these nutrients in order to make you look and feel your best if your diet seems to be falling short.
I recently received some very good advice from Alexis Poole, she is the Spoon Guru Company’s Nutritionist & Registered Associate Nutritionist. She knows a lot about our bodies and what might cause them to do odd things. We often experience aches and pains and after some paracetamol, generally, the feelings pass. However, have you ever thought that your troubles could actually be caused by a food intolerance? This post includes some great tips on how to spot food intolerance with migraines, tummy pains and tiredness and how any ingering health issues could potentially be solved with just a simple change to your diet.

We are very lucky to live, quite near, the very beautiful Cambridge City and so when Hubby and I have a date night, that is usually where we go. At the end of April we took a trip to Cambridge to experience the new Jamie’s Pizzeria which sits on top of Jamie’s Italian, it was a nice evening to celebrate Hubby’s new job and eat yummy pizza. It was also nice as Jamie Oliver is my husband’s favourite chef and we absolutely love his recipes, this was our first trip to one of his restaurants. We were both very excited.
Shopping with two children, especially this time of year, is just incredibly frustrating. For both parents and the children no doubt. Running around the store with the two of them, arguing about what they can and cannot have. Noah claiming that he needs the next Lego set which costs over £20 and Isla screaming because she wants the entire girls’ toy aisle, and not forgetting the cakes. Oh Coco pops. And all the Easter items that are in store at the moment. It’s much easier getting it all delivered, exactly when I want it and for free! This is what the Tesco’s Delivery saver can offer you.
Flora recently sent me some recipes and I just couldn’t resist this sticky ginger cake recipe. Perfect sponge, ginger-tastic and a thick gloopy icing on top to give it an extra zangy taste. It is a surprisingly easy recipe to follow, quick to make but there are a few ingredients that you might have to hunt around your supermarkets for – like ginger syrup.
You know the good old song, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. Well I have adapted it to my own little theory, a spoonful of honey helps the medicine become unnecessary. Completely. It might just be a coincidence, but since I stopped having sugar in my tea and replaced it for honey – I have not had any illnesses. It has been about 5 months now since I cut out sugar and I am having at least one spoonful of honey per day.
We were really lucky to check out the new look Pizza Express restaurant at Welwyn Garden City the other week, where we had a fantastic meal and we really loved the new features and design of the restaurant. I especially loved the purple patterned fabric chairs, they would look good in my house!
