I know, I know, MORE pancakes… but there’s no such thing as too many pancakes right? Anyway, this year the greatest holiday/celebration (Pancake Day/Shrove Tuesday) falls the day before Valentines so I thought it’d be rude not to combine the two somehow as what could possible show true love more?
Pancake day is fast approaching so for me right now, they’re the only thing on my mind, but no matter what day or week of the year it is, let’s be honest, it just doesn’t get much better. Recently I’ve been looking at different toppings to try with the fluffy American kind of pancake and saw a few with yoghurt on… this really intrigued me and once I gave it a go I couldn’t believed I’d never tried it before! What I love about the yoghurt and fruit is the really fresh taste it gives the pancakes, perfect for when the weather is a bit warmer or you don’t want anything too heavy.
Christmas is practically upon us, but in case you do have a few hours spare over the weekend, I have a perfectly easy Christmas bake for you! I was inspired by a bake from Little Sunny Kitchen and although my cheery snowmen are by no means perfect, they nonetheless tasted great and brought a smile to lots of faces! It’s perfect to do with small children, as the recipe is simple and not too time consuming and I’m sure they could be brought even more to life with some hats or scarves to keep them warm! Already looking forward to giving these another go so I’ve included all the recipe details below!
I’m starting to try and eat a bit healthier and I’ve been increasingly seeing images of delicious looking smoothie bowls creeping up across my Instagram feed. One of my worst habits is not having any breakfast so I thought I’d try and dip my toe into smoothie bowl land.
Dulce de Leche is a beautifully sweet, creamy caramel flavour spread/sauce that makes the perfect addition to a bowl of ice cream. It’s also really simple to make and a great gift at Christmastime. Just pick a couple of pretty jars, fill with this gorgeous sauce and adorn with some pretty ribbon for that perfectly understated look.
There’s nothing like something a bit boozy at Christmas time and this Spiced Pomegranate Gin is the perfect drink to warm you up! The original recipe for this can be found here and you need to make sure you make this at least two weeks in advance to ensure the gin absorbs all the Christmassy flavours.
Another perfect homemade Christmas gift, I cannot get enough of honeycomb at Christmas time. It’s super easy to make and only uses 3 ingredients you’ll already have in your store cupboard (probably!) You can make it as a great addition to a hamper, as an individual gift or just for munching on whilst snuggled in front of your favourite Christmas movie.
