Popcorn Snowballs 2

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

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!


Robinsons Fruit Creations: A great alternative to alcohol this festive season 8

Non-alcoholic Drinks for Adults is a paid collaboration with Robinsons Fruit Creations.  I am not really a drinker, in fact, I am often found to be cradling a cup of tea rather than an alcoholic one at parties, but that is due to the fact that I am not a fizzy pop girl and often there is no alternative.  This is where Robinsons Fruit Creations come to the rescue.  Fruit Creations is the grown-up squash for adults and contains twice the fruit of Robinsons single concentrate and designed for the adult palate.

Oreo Owl Cupcakes - Cooking with kids

Peanut Butter flavour Oreo Owl Cupcakes – Cooking with kids 3

How adorable are these owl cupcakes all made by Mini with Peanut Butter flavour Oreos.  We have been challenged by Oreo to produce a recipe using one of their exciting new flavours range that most suited our personality.   The options were Choc’o Brownie flavour Oreo – smooth, Mint flavour Oreo – cool, Peanut Butter flavour Oreo – nutty or Strawberry Cheesecake flavour Oreo – fruity.  Well seen as we are The Mad House there really was no choice – it had to be nutty!
