Yorkshire Pudding Wraps is a paid post for the Family Favourite campaign, sponsored by Scotch Kitchen #FamilyFavourite One of the highlights of our family week is Sunday Dinner. The husbeast is in charge and always produces a fantastic meal and we all sit around the table together to enjoy. One of the things we like to have is beef. Beef is naturally rich in protein, low in salt and provides eight essential vitamins and minerals that support good health and wellbeing. These are: iron, niacin (vitamin B3), vitamins B6 and B12, zinc, riboflavin, potassium and phosphorus.
Christmas Baking With The Family: Our Favourite Sugar Cookies Recipe is a paid collaboration with Funky Pigeon. I am a BIG fan of Christmas traditions and Christmas Cooking. Over the years I hope these traditions cement by boys’ memories of our times together. I for one have always loved it when we are all in the kitchen and some of our best conversations happen when we are baking up a storm.
New potato, spring onion & cheddar quiche is a paid collaborative post with Tesco Jersey Royal Potatoes. There is something amazing about the Jersey Royal Potato season, to me, they are the cream of new potatoes and as the daughter in law of a farmer, I understand the importance of eating seasonally. Tesco Jersey Royals are delicious, earthy and nutty and one of the traditional foodie signals that Spring has arrived. They are available only between April to July.
Chai Tea Bag Cookies with Free Printable is a paid collaboration with Bostik. Everyone that knows me will testify to the fact that I love tea. So when I was asked to come up with a British craft I thought tea and why not combine my love of tea, crafting and cooking and bring you chai tea bag cookies with a free printable tag.
Easy Vanilla cupcakes and icing is a paid collaborative post with limited edition HARIBO Starmix “Hunt the Double Yolker” #HuntTheDoubleYolker. What I love about this recipe for easy vanilla cupcakes and icing is that you use one 250g block of butter to make both the cakes and the icing, so no need to open a second block to make the icing.
Chilli with Dips – A Perfect Family Dinner is a paid collaboration with McCoy’s Muchos Tortilla Snacks. We love a family meal that brings everyone to the table and my simple chilli with dips served with crips or chips (as folks over the pond call them) is one of those meals. It is a real hands-on family favourite.
OK I am going to admit I am not a doner kebab person at all, in fact I don’t think I have ever had one – I have tried a little, but I was veggie for 14 years, but all the men of the house LOVE them. So i decided to have a go at making our own fakeaway slow cooker doner kebab. I had seen lots of recipes for slow cooker meatloafs made from beef mince, so knew that it would be pretty OK, what I wasn’t prepared for was just how much the family enjoyed it.
A Genius Way To Get Kids to Try New foods with Lancashire Farm Diaries is a paid collaborative post. Do you have fussy eaters or children that are just stuck in their way when it comes to eating? I think that at some point this is something that all parents will experience and I love the way that Lanchasire Farm Diaries came up with to encourage my boys to try new foods.
Sweet Chilli Chicken with Noodles is a paid collaborative post with Hello Fresh. “Boys’ are bottomless”, one of those things that people say to you that you never quite understand until your boys hit puberty. It is certainly true that I have two very good eaters on my hands and I often wonder if they have hollow legs. This sweet Chilli Chicken with Noodles is one of a new range of recipes from Hello Fresh in their Food for Thought collection created after they discovered that on average Brits spend 26 seconds appreciating their recipes before tucking in. The Food for Thought recipes includes an additional step to help you enjoy this more »
These popcorn snowballs are a great twist on the classic movie snack of popcorn and we have added a winter twist to them. They are super fun and really simple to make and we have added a wintery twist to them with our addition of white chocolate snow. Plus they only take four ingredients, so are a real win for us.
Tips for the perfect family BBQ is a paid collaboration with Regina for the #TheStressofMess campaign. We have become quite adept at BBQ’s this summer. Not only thanks to the fabulous weather but also thanks to the boys being older and more than capable of doing a lot of the work and cooking themselves. Plus for some reason cooking with fire has become a man’s job here and for once I am not going to get all feminist about this as I normally would as this means I get a day off cooking and cleaning!
