Air Fryer Brussel Sprouts

Brussel spouts, whether you like them or not, are a traditional part of Christmas dinner. I, personally, am not a fan myself but my husband John LOVES them. The problem with Christmas dinner is that there is so much to do, only a certain number of hobs available on the cooker and not enough time to really do everything you want. I want to spend Christmas Day with my family, watching Erin opening her presents and having fun so I decided to experiment a bit and see what I could cook in my air fryer. The great thing about this

American Breakfast Waffles In Under 15 Minutes

Ever since our holiday and wedding in Orlando back in 2013 I have had this massive love for American breakfast waffles but unfortunately, have never been able to make any. Earlier this month we received a new waffle maker from Dunelm to help us out for Christmas Day breakfast and it is amazing! American breakfast waffles are so much easier to make than I thought they were. I had visions of me messing them up like I normally do with crepes and I thought I’d do something really wrong with the recipe. The problem with looking up recipes on the

Christmas Day Breakfast Ideas

This Christmas Erin will be nearly 2 and I know that as soon as she wakes up and comes downstairs she’s going to be majorly excited. I know how tempting it will be to forget about breakfast but Erin, as well as me, John and the rest of my family have a very long day ahead of us. Last Christmas Erin took a couple of days to open her presents, which then merged into her birthday on New Year’s Day and it was never ending. Christmas Day was so exhausting that I think Erin had 3 or 4 naps and

5 Delicious Ways To Use A Bread Maker

I love kitchen gadgets and John will probably tell you we have too many. We have a tiny kitchen and only really have room for things we use a lot so multi functional appliances are a must have for us. Something I’ve been thinking about buying recently is a bread maker but wondered if I would use it enough. After having a look around, I found that Panasonic Bread Makers have loads of different functions and can make a lot more than just bread. I never would have thought of some of the things you can make so here are 5

Buy A Gift: Sparkling Afternoon Tea For 2 Experience

A couple of weeks ago I spoke about Buy A Gift in the gift guide for travel lovers. We were lucky enough to receive two complimentary experiences through Buy A Gift, once of which was Sparkling Afternoon Tea for 2 at the Beechwood Hotel in North Walsham, Norfolk. When you order an experience through Buy A Gift you are sent a lovely presentation card with information about the experience as well as a code to redeem online. The great thing about Buy A Gift experiences is that you can exchange a lot of them online if it isn’t quite suitable for

As a busy parent I like to find products that save me time and make my life easier. Vremi is a brand that have so many fun and interesting products but they’re also super useful at the same time. Today I’m bringing you a great opportunity to win a set of Vremi Baking Cups and Apple Slicer. The Vremi Apple Slicer comes with three different blades, making it much more than just an apple slicer.

Festive Food and Drink Ideas

The great thing about Christmas is that you can get away with eating and drinking more than you normally would and for a couple of weeks, at least! I love having Christmassy food in the house during December so I thought I’d write a post with a few Festive Food and Drink Ideas. One of my favourite restaurants to eat at is Carluccio’s but I never really knew that they sold sweet treats and gifts as well! Not only would the Stelline Di Cioccolato (£12.95) make a lovely gift but they would be wonderful as a table decoration too. These gianduja-filled gold stars are

Center Parcs Restaurants: Pancake House

During our first trip to America back in 2013 for our wedding both John and I fell in love with the pancakes. There’s nothing better than a real American pancake and a trip to either IHOP or Denny’s. Sometimes I think I would pay to go back just for some strawberry and banana pancakes. Anyway, as soon as I saw that there was a Pancake House at Centre Parcs, I knew I had to eat there. The menu looked amazing and there was so much choice. I found myself drooling over it numerous times before our holiday. Originally, we had
