September 2014 Degustabox

Want to see what goodies I received in my September 2014 Degustabox? Burts Lentil Wave Crisps If there was one snack that I couldn’t live without it would most certainly be crisps. I’m a true fiend when it comes to the little enticing bags and although my tastebuds are always happy as Larry, my waist line certainly isn’t. Because of this I’ve been trying to opt for “healthier” crisps, also known as those lower in calories. To be honest, as much as I love Quavers, they are getting a bit dull and boring so these three bags couldn’t have arrived at…

Recipe | Spicy and Creamy Beef Meatballs

Want to know how to make spicy and creamy beef meatballs? With the colder weather on it’s way, it is that time of year where I start eating those very unhealthy Winter warmers, yes I’m talking about comfort food. It is no lie that I am a huge pasta lover but another thing I enjoy is a good sauce bowl of meatballs.

Recipe | Delicious Syrup Coated Bananas

Want to see how to make delicious syrup coated bananas? I’m not usually one for sweet foods, I mean my sweet tooth does pipe up every now and again but I’m much more of a savoury gal. When it comes to desserts, one of my all time favourites would most certainly have to be a nice wedge of chocolate cake covered in delicious cream but another weakness of mine is this dish. I was made this a few years back by my parents and have loved it ever since. It is so simple to make yet so good. Obviously it…

Recipe | Easy Tasty Roast Potatoes

Want to know how I make my roasties? Complicated and super time consuming cooking and recipes just aren’t for me. I like things that don’t take a decade to make and don’t include any weird methods which take lots and lots of effort. For years (well ever since I studied Food Technology/Home Economics at school) I’ve been in search of an easy but effective roast potato “recipe” or shall we say, cooking method. I’ve tried a lot of very long winded methods which quite frankly have been absolutely pants. I’ve also found the majority of recipes state that using goose…
