Review – Joseph Joseph Titan Trash Compactor

Joseph Joseph Titan Trash Compactor

Yes, this is a review of a bin, but the Titan trash compactor is no ordinary rubbish bin; It features a patented, hygienic compaction system that allows it to hold up to 3 times more waste inside than any other bin of the same size. Because it enables you to compact your waste, it means that it doesn’t need to be emptied as often, saving you money on bin liners. Also, If you are one of those unfortunate enough to have been cut down to alternate week bin collection then it means that you don’t fill up your outside bin as quickly. (more…)

Sweetcorn and feta fritters - a quick and easy meal that everyone will love!

What are your go-to meals? The ones that you cook frequently, pretty much know the recipe for off by heart and that never disappoint. These sweetcorn and feta fritters are one of mine and I cook them, or a variation of them, probably once every few weeks. They are quick and easy to make, easily adaptable to fit whatever you happen to have in the fridge or freezer, and most importantly, delicious! (more…)

Percy Pig Turns 25!

Percy Pig

Percy pig turned 25 years old this July, yep, a whole quarter of a century! The classic sweets have been around since I was six years old so it’s safe to say that I’ve enjoyed a fair few of them in my time! It is incredibly hard to resist picking up a packet every time you pop into M&S… (more…)

My Favourite Chocolate Layer Cake

The best chocolate layer cake - three layers of moist chocolate cake filled with smooth chocolate ganache, perfect for any celebration!

Everyone needs a go-to chocolate cake recipe, one that is guaranteed to work every time and is perfect for any celebration, this one is mine. Three layers of rich, moist, intensely chocolaty cake smothered with smooth chocolate ganache. Obviously what constitutes the ‘ultimate’ chocolate cake is fairly subjective and not everyone will agree; but I think that this one is pretty perfect.

ten minute naan pizza - super quick, tasty pizza made using shop bought naan bread; ready in 10 minutes!

Although I do really like making my own pizza from scratch, including the dough; it can be a bit of a faff and takes a while. Not good if you are hungry and craving pizza fast! I am not a fan of shop bought pizza bases, but one really good ready-made solution is naan bread; it makes the perfect pizza base and because it is pre-baked you simply need to melt your cheese to finish off your pizza.

Chocolate berry smoothie - a rich, chocolatey smoothie that feels like you are drinking dessert but is totally healthy!

I always feel like a bit of a cheat when I post a smoothie recipe because they are so simple that it almost feels wrong to even call it a recipe; I mean, the instructions are only one line long for goodness sake! Nevertheless, I having been making this chocolate berry smoothie a lot recently so thought that I would go ahead and share it as I like it so much. (more…)

Tangzhong Burger Buns

Tangzhong burger buns - super soft burger buns made using the tangzhong method (Hokkaido milk bread)

I love the tangzhong method of bread baking, it gives such great results every time – pillowy soft, slightly sweet, incredibly versatile bread. If you haven’t heard of tangzhong before then it is quite simple; it just involves making a cooked paste of flour and water which is added to the bread dough; the dough is quite sticky, so is best made in a stand mixer, but it stays soft for days and is SO good!

Easy to make chewy chocolate chip cookies.

I know that the internet really doesn’t need another recipe for chocolate chip cookies; I am sharing this purely so that I have my recipe neatly written up, rather than having to follow my scribbled recipe on a scrap of paper as I had been doing up until now. Nevertheless, they are very good cookies and are definitely worth adding to your repertoire. (more…)
