An Easter Tea Party Courtesy of Waitrose

I had an email recently asking if I’d like to host an Easter tea party courtesy of Waitrose and I had to accept as I thought it was a lovely idea.

Easy Banana Cupcakes

These are so quick to make and a great way of using up any bananas that are past their best (let’s face it there is always one in the fruit bowl).

Two Minute Nutella Mug Cake – No Egg Required

Prashad – Indian Vegetarian Cooking – A Review and Corn on The Cob Curry Recipe

We are huge fans of Indian cooking in this household but I’ve never really been able to master cooking really nice Indian food at home. I’ve got a couple of Indian cookbooks and to be honest they are a bit boring and not very inspiring. When Prashad’s sent me a copy of their cookbook Prashad – [...]

Spinach and Cheese Soufflé

We are huge cheese fans on this household, so when Barber’s 1833 offered to send me some of their vintage reserve cheddar along with some ingredients and a recipe, I was more than happy to take them up on the challenge I have to admit it’s the first time I’ve ever been sent eggs in the post and [...]
