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.
Over the past few months I’ve been trying to pay much more attention to what I’m eating and putting in my body. Now, don’t get me wrong… I’m still all about treats but am trying to take a more ‘everything in moderation approach’ so that I can enjoy these even more.
As you may know, I love a subscription box so when I found out about Ethical Kitchen, I couldn’t pass up the chance for coffee, chocolate and snacks delivered to my door.
I think December has got to be my favourite month. Not much can beat Christmastime for me and I just adore the festive lead up to the holiday. For today’s blogmas post I thought I’d write a little list of the stuff I love to do in my favourite month.
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.
Today I want to share a delicious Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe that is perfect for holiday gifting. It’s so easy to make and stores really well for a yummy and thoughtful homemade gift.I scribbled this down from a copy of Waitrose Kitchen a few years back and I just love making this at Christmas time as it’s so deliciously moorish and comforting. It’s also super easy which makes it great for when you may have left things a bit last minute! Obviously, you can always just make it as a gift for yourself…
Something very exciting has happened to my little town. Small Batch has come to Worthing! For those of you that don’t know, Small Batch is a Brighton based company who make the most delicious cups of coffee and do everything from your standard Cappuccino to a more exotic single brewed origin coffee. Whatever you chose, all their coffee is delicious. Since opening a shop in Worthing and becoming wildly more convenient for me and Adam, we’ve been there a lot.
There’s been lots of baking going on at home this week, as it’s finally getting darker and that bit more chilly. I don’t know if this is particularly traditionally autumnal, but I do tend to drink more coffee at this time of year so it is for me at least! So, I thought I’d share this Coffee & Walnut Cupcake recipe with you, which is adapted from here.
