Ending the weekend on a Cocktail high.

Great weekends are made up of furniture buying exploration in our beautiful home county, discovering new beaches, eating good food and rounding it all off with cocktails in the garden. 》A disclaimer here, there was also much arguing too, the girls have been in quite a funk the last few days and my patience wore…

Small Space Garden Ideas – Table Top Edible Bowl.

It’s no secret that I’m in love with my garden, those that follow me on Instagram and watch my stories will have seen that it features heavily in our daily life. This said, it’s a relatively recent love affair, which intensified when we spent some time last year having a bit of an overhaul. You…

Botelet Breakfast Club (and unofficial Appreciation Society).

Yesterday morning Nancy and myself started the new week in just about the best way possible, the way all weeks should start… Botelet Breakfast Club. Take two of my favourite Bs, Breakfast and Botelet, combine them with sunshine and good company and that’s a pretty special Monday morning. A once weekly pop-up breakfast cafe… take…

Three Scrummy Sausage Roll recipes.

A week or so ago I shared a snap of the kitchen and declared my love for my first attempt at making Sausage Rolls. I was inundated with requests for the recipe, so I thought I’d do a super quick blog about them. The title is a little deceptive, it’s basically one recipe, with a…

Lemony goodness loaf.

I made a rather yum Lemon Drizzle Loaf  for my mum’s birthday a few days ago and shared a quick snap on my Instagram stories. I had a fair few people message me for the recipe, so I thought I’d pop it here for everyone to enjoy. It’s super quick and easy to make but…

Party.

I’m sat here, foggy headed from too much wine last night, the girls on my lap, watching a film, all stuffed with cake and just having a lovely lazy Saturday. It’s a rare thing, argument free days, so I’m just soaking it up and enjoying the sofa snuggles. We’re watching Fly Away Home. So, I…

Alice’s Beetroot Brownie recipe.

Today was a home day and I felt some baking was in order, I put a shout out and lots of my lovely readers replied with their favourite recipes, but Eula requested ‘Beetroot Hash Browns’ as she calls them, and what the little person wants, well…. I thought I’d share the recipe (I posted a…

Throw it all in soup recipe.

So, the weather has predictably reverted back to normal service, we got a little taster of how good life can be with some sunshine and warmth….but oh no, it obviously couldn’t last. I thought I’d share a quick slow cooker (there’s a contradiction for you!) recipe for some hearty, health packed comfort. I can’t take…

Pancakes galore!

Evening all, so how many pancakes have you eaten today? I was aiming for none (supposed to be on the health wagon) but have so far consumed 4, whoops! The girls have never been that taken with the traditional pancake, I’m a huge fan of sugar and lemon on a thin pancake, pure and simple,…

Chocolate and Peanut Butter mug cake.

Today I’m in a bad mood and not much can shift it, but in a brief moment of child free bliss I just visited a happy place, created in the microwave! Here’s the recipe for Chocolate and Peanut Butter Mug Cake… You will need – A standard sized mug 3tbsp plain flour 2.5tbsp caster sugar…

Let’s eat cake.

I made a quick cake as we had family coming today for a Boxing day at home. It’s my go to recipe, so quick and easy to make and really rather delicious and indulgent. I thought I’d share it with you. Beetroot Brownie Cake… Ingredients – I’ve doubled the quantities as I always like to…

Curry anyone?

Stuck on ideas for dinner? Here’s a quick little recipe share. Today’s a hang about at home and try and catch up day. The girls aren’t anyone’s friend it would seem but the oven is full and a Punjabi Chicken curry is simmering on the hob. I’m a huge curry fan, though I’m not keen…
