What’s in my Fridge? Blogtober16

I’m back for another day of Blogtober. I’ve missed so many days now that I’m not sure you can really say I’m taking part. But, I like the prompts so II’m just joining when I can. Today the question is ‘what is in my fridge?’ I used to love watching MTV’s Cribs, and getting to have a neb inside the fridges of the stars. Well I’m afraid dear reader, you’ve caught me at a bad time. We do our shopping online, and get it delivered on a Friday morning. Today is Thursday, so the fridge isn’t stocked up with champagne […]

Chocolate Pen Review – National Chocolate Week

This week, from the 12th until the 18th of October, it is National Chocolate Week. There is no denying, I am a massive chocolate lover.

I don’t know much about it, but from what I have read, it’s more widely celebrated in America than it is in […]

Easter Empire Biscuits / German Biscuits

Empire biscuits, or German biscuits as I’ve always known them, are my absolute favourite of all home baked biscuits. Two delicious shortbread biscuits sandwiched together with jam, and topped with a large dollop of icing sugar. What’s not to love? While these biscuits are traditionally round, we decided to give them an Easter twist, and use some cute little Easter cookie cutters. They are really easy to make, perfect if you are looking for a last minute Easter baking idea.  Ingredients 225g butter, softened ( I used a buttery spread and they were fine) 100g Caster Sugar 250g Plain flour, […]

Yummy….. My Little Pony & Minecraft Pizza

It’s fair to say we love pizza in our house. When we lived in England before we had the kids, we regularly indulged in massive amounts of Pizza Hut. Luckily, for our ever growing waistlines and our ever shrinking bank balance, there is no Pizza Hut anywhere near here. So when we fancy a pizza, we make our own. It’s pretty simple, and soooo tasty! So last night we decided to make pizza. I asked the kids what kind of pizza they wanted, and C shouts ‘My little pony!’, then once N hears her request he pipes up and shouts […]
