If there is one appliance I think you should ask Santa for this Christmas (other than a Thermomix ;)), it should be one of these New Wave Just Pizza Maker.
For crispy, perfect pizza every time, it’s great for just a person living on their own, or having a pizza party!
There is something so sophisticated about tea. Depending on the blend, it can transport you away, calm you down, soothe a bloated stomach, help with symptoms of a cold, or just keep you going.
This post trials out the new Pyramid Infuser Range from Twinings.
I’m not normally one for pre-made sauce sachets, but I give the Sweet & Sticky Pork one a whirl from Maggi. Quicker and easier than going to the Chinese takeaway joint, healthier too!
For a person that only drinks coffee a few times a year, the Lavazza Modo Mio has amped that up to slightly more. A great little unit for home!
Road testing the lastest product from Breville, the Sous Vide. Lots of possibilities!
La Madre Bakery have a chocolate twist on the lamington, and it’s a winner!
Beef cheek is a cut that needs to be slow cooked. I turned some into the delicious beef cheek sliders.
Belinda Jeffery’s Polish honey cake made with Nerada tea.
Goes perfectly with a cup of tea!
I sample, for research purposes, and so you don’t have to… new flavours of chocolate from Lindt!
So here it is, my long awaited review; the battle between Thermochef vs Thermomix. Having owned and frequently used my Thermomix for about a month or so, I was given the opportunity to road test it against the Thermochef. I had my doubts, I had heard stories but decided to adopt a fair approach and attitude when
Sometimes you want a cookbook that is straight to the point; pretty pictures, easy to follow recipes, one you can grab off the shelf and it will have the answer to that weekday “what am I going to cook!?” dilemma. 50 Fabulous Curries is just that. Page after page of pretty, moreish looking curries that
I am a tea drinker, not a coffee drinker. I have at least 10 different types of tea in my house. My mood dictates what flavour I have. All around the world, countries have their own Twinings tea (Russian Caravan, Irish Breakfast, English Breakfast and New Zealand Breakfast). We have now decided it’s to time
I was lucky enough to score an invite to the launch of the new Mövenpick ice-cream kiosk at Westfield Doncaster last week. I brought along fellow blogger Cherrie, to help enjoy the VIP treatment of canapés, sparkling wine and free ice-cream…. how could she refuse? The Mövenpick kiosk is in the middle of the sleekly
Remember Marion from Masterchef series 2? For a while there, we all thought she would win the cooking competition, but it came down to a satay sauce…. a sauce that sent her home. Thankfully she has worked on her satay sauce techniques and launched her new range of easy to cook at home Thai food
So I was lucky enough to score an invite to Bonne Maman’s Mothers’ Day breakfast with Margaret Fulton, to help launch the three new flavours; Redcurrant Jelly, Quince Jelly and Chestnut Cream. The invite came on a Bonne Maman jar! How adorable… and practical… mmmmm strawberry conserve. Unfortunately for me, the event was held in
If you’ve been following me on twitter on instagram/flickr, you would have known I’ve been putting the new Airfryer through some tests. The Airfryer was launched on April 1st 2011 – as a healthier alternative to deep frying. Whilst I had tweeted about receiving one for testing, a few suggested it was just merely an
When you say “vegetarian” to some people, they screw up their face and think of bland, mushy, tasteless tofu dishes. I would probably be one of those people if I didn’t have a friend who is vegetarian. It really opened my eyes to the amazing options out there for vegetarians. When I’m choosing a restaurant
Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. I had THE most delicious day, and will continue for about a week. Lots to blog; the awesome Mopho, Lux Bite and Remezzo, amongst other eats; so stayed tuned! But for now… Who here has been a victim of spillage when bringing your lunch into work? I most certainly
Bet you’re thinking I’ve gone and put the wrong picture on this post… I’m meant to be blabbing on about pecans and here is a picture of a burger with wedges…. right? I’ll be honest, pecans never used to be a nut I was interested in. I was a pistachio, peanut, cashew kinda gal. But
I was lucky enough to be invited into the kitchen at Bakers Delight Carnegie to get a hands on experience on what goes into making their famous hot cross buns (or bums as I like to call them). I’ve always been a fan of Bakers Delight, from their ham and mayo twirls, pizzas, crunchy rolls,
I must admit, I thought this book would just be like one of those other ones I’ve seen; country style cooking with waffly stories and recipes I’d never try. Hardie Grant the publishers offered to send me a copy, and boy was I glad they did. On closer inspection, Audrey Gordon is actually Heidi Arena,
Can I tempt you with a sandwich with homestyle chicken? So I know that some of you are wary of chicken in a can, despite how convenient it is; but would you contemplate fresh chicken chunks in a resealable bag? Moira Mac’s range is just such a convenient product. It comes in four different flavours;
WBC; could it be the World’s Best Cereal? It’s a big call to make, so my expectations were high. WBC The Real Cereal Company offers two varieties of super healthy cereals; Power Packed Cereal and Natural Juicy Cereal Bircher. I first had my encounter with bircher muesli around this time last year when I made
