Written by Allen Brown Cooking for your family can be one of two things, a pleasure or a chore, sometimes it’s both! Whether you’re a family of three or you regularly cook for a group much larger, you want to cook something great for your group. Sometimes, though, fitting in a great recipe in an already busy day seems impossible. When it comes to cooking fried food, people often think there’s no way of achieving great fried food at home. Well, there is. You don’t need to head out to a restaurant for awesome fries
AD | Collaborative post Over the past few months the whole of the UK have been spending a lot more time at home and doing things that they might normally have done. This includes teaching their children from home, making a start on big garden makeovers and doing the work themselves and also a lot more cooking from scratch and baking. Being at home has given a lot of the time and opportunity to try new things, get creative and do things together as a family, which is never a bad thing. It wasn’t that
Collaborative post The term “superfood” generally applies to those food items that are incredibly nutrient-dense, so much so that consuming them even in smaller amounts can lead to fantastic health benefits. There is some debate surrounding how many superfoods are worthy of the name as the label has been applied to foods that aren’t particularly rich in nutrients. That being said, there are some foods that you might be surprised to learn are true superfoods. Consider adding these foods to your regular diet to reap some serious health benefits and improve your overall wellness. Quinoa
AD | Paid collaboration I don’t think I’ve ever had a really good relationship with food and I know I should be doing a lot better than I am. I struggle with organising meals if they are just for myself and I sometimes can’t be bothered to prepare a full meal. I want something quick, filling and easy to sort out. Recently, after giving up drinking sugary drinks like Coca Cola, I lost a bit of weight but it put me at an awkward in between size. To try to get down to that lower
AD | Brand ambassador Out of all of the people I know I think I would really struggle to find someone who doesn’t like cake. I am not the best baker and in fact, I’m really not very good at it but I love a delicious treat! Today I am so excited to introduce you to The Norfolk Cake House, a local company to me in North Norfolk, run by the very talented Laura Payne. Based in North Walsham, Laura runs her business from her professional studio kitchen and offers wedding cakes, celebration cakes, cupcakes and biscuits.
Earlier this year I thought we had really turned a corner. Erin started slowly trying new foods again, finding a new favourite in chow mein noodles and generally eating well. I have no idea what happened but over the past couple of weeks things really haven’t been going so well. Just a few weeks ago I remember us sitting at the dinner table, having our usual meal on a Sunday, and things just weren’t right. One of the reasons why I cook the same thing on a Sunday each week is because it’s something I
For as long as I can remember I have had a bad relationship with food. I don’t remember liking a range of foods as a child and honestly, we didn’t have the most varied of diets. My Mum worked long hours in a pub and we were never a well off family. ‘Proper’ home cooked meals weren’t really a thing in our house and if they were, I only sort of remember eating roast dinners. We did always go to my Nanna’s for dinner on a Wednesday and that would be the same kind of
AD | Collaborative post We’re in the middle of the summer holidays and Erin is doing a really good job of trying to eat us out of house and home. Before she broke up from nursery for the summer I think I forgot just how much she can eat when she’s home for the day. At nursery she has two set snack times and a packed lunch that I send her with so I know that she’s having a balanced diet during the day. Now, when routine seems to have gone out of the window
