A beginners try of spiralizing

I’ve seen so many Instagram posts and Pinterest images of spirilazed vegetables, (Is spiralized even a word?) and I’ve always been intrigued in this rather fancy way of prepping vegetables. The thing is, with a new baby I don’t have time to mess around with fiddly kitchen utensils and I don’t have the space to put loads of little bits and pieces away. So I guess I’ve just admired the Spiralizer trend from a distance. Until now. So I’ve tried the Cookworks Spiralizer from Ideal World (which is currently only £10.00!) I was a little concerned when I first saw…

Caketoppers Review & Discount Code

There’s something special about personalised products and that doesn’t stop when it comes to food. Especially cake.

No dents, marks and like I’d just picked them up from the shop. It’s all very well and good getting…

(If you missed it you can find it here… trust me, it will make your mouth water!) Well, now I’ve found somewhere that does some pretty amazing traditional style Polish food. Polish Village Meals offer home cooked style dishes from Sauerkraut stew to dumplings, it’s cooked and ready for you to heat up at home. Now traditional Polish food is pretty new to me so it’s great to try something different. I love trying out knew dishes, especially from different…

Bringing The West Coast To London

There’s nothing like fresh food is there? When something is super fresh the taste and texture is just on another level. I love cooking from scratch with fresh ingredients but after being in hospital for a week after having Baby C and being having a further 6 week recovery time I was worried about how I would get out and about to get that fresh food. It doesn’t just turn up… well, actually it does! Luckily for me, West Coast Foods deliver award winning fresh Scottish produce with a 24-hour delivery guarantee. Problem solved! Fresh food to my door and…
