Happy Easter! It’s been a while since I have posted on my small, humble space on the internet. Today I made some, what I refer to as, ‘peanut butter balls’. They are a simple mix of plain Scottish oats, golden syrup, and peanut butter. Unfortunately, today I had to use maple syrup as my golden … More No-Bake Peanut Butter Treats
The Oxford English Dictionary classifies ‘pie’, the food, as ‘A baked dish of fruits, meat, fish, or vegetables, covered with pastry (or a similar substance)’. But what about fish pie or cottage pie where there is no pastry, instead, there is a lovely layer of mashed potato. Then, there’s the old use of the word … More What, Actually, Is Pie??

Last Thursday, I was just craving waffles…can’t imagine why (!) 😉 I decided to ask one of my friends if she was free to meet up and gave a subtle hint when she asked what plan I had in mind: ‘dunno,fancied Off the Waffle lol’. We then debated for a few minutes whether to go … More Say ‘Yes’ to Waffles!
Recently, it’s been tossed around in the media that instead of having 5 fruit and veg. a day, we now should be consuming 10!? Not sure about anyone else, but I don’t think I could manage that in a week…pretty bad, right? This isn’t exactly your 10 fruit and veg, but it is a relatively … More Salmon, Vegetable and Rice Stir fry
For a birthday meal, my parents treated me to a lovely meal at Croma and I thought that I might as well share a picture of the pizzas. I have to admit, I did miss my Pizza Express salted caramel profiteroles with a cup of tea, however, Croma does have some pretty good pizzas… and … More Dinner at Croma
Debate time! How do you pronounce *scone*- as A) ‘scon’ or B) ‘scoan’. I purposely didn’t write ‘Scon or Scone’ as the title because it suggests that ‘scone’ is the correct way to say it. When I was a child, I always used to pronounce it as option A. However, no surprise, a classroom debate … More Scone or Scone?
Pizza Express is my go-to restaurant when my family and I fancy a nice meal out. They have good desserts including the classic warm chocolate fudge cake with ice cream! Up until recently, I have always ordered either ice cream on its own (chocolate and/or salted caramel) or the chocolate fudge cake. As brilliant as … More You Should Try This Dessert!
I just walked into Tesco and saw the Krispy Kreme glazed Cruller staring at me from one of the shelves. It is priced at £1.75 (nice and expensive for a doughnut). I remember being a tad upset when they stopped selling the Cruller as it is my favourite Krispy Kreme doughnut; plain and simple, like me. … More Holy Crap, the Cruller is Back!
Milk or water first? As a British citizen, tea (with milk and 1 sugar!) is life. An exaggeration? I would like to see my American friend survive without their morning coffee, and then they can criticize my addiction to my morning and afternoon cups of tea! 😉 Anyway, as said at the start, the main … More Tea Debate?
