Everdine – Clean Eating Microwave Meals Delivered. Really?

One of the hardest things since becoming a mum is finding time to cook myself some decent food during the day. When it’s just Baby C and I, there doesn’t seem to be enough time to cook a decent lunch from scratch and then eat it. So I have to admit, I’ve been living off chicken nuggets and waffles. To be honest, I’ve quite enjoyed the nuggets! But it’s getting to a point now where I’m craving healthy food. I want to eat the things I loved before my taste buds went haywire. Finding the time to prepare, cook AND…

Easy Honey Glazed Chicken Recipe By Max Lami

This is a quick and easy recipe to prepare what can often be a bland dish, chicken, with some flavour. Though the recipe says chicken breasts, I have often made the recipe with chicken drumsticks and it always turns out well.

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.

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…

A Red Letter Days Experience – with Cake Boy Eric Lanlard

You can imagine how happy I was when I got invited to the first Red Letter Days blogger ambassador event. I’ve always been a fan of Red Letter Days – giving experiences as gifts. Obviously a new lipstick or bag is nice, but when you get an experience, well that’s a memory for life. When I found out we would be decorating cupcakes and having luxury afternoon tea with Cake Boy, I was so excited. One of my first ‘me time’ moments as a new mum, surrounded by cake, getting my creative on, having delicious food with a famous chef…
