One Day - book review

One Day – book review

Crazy I know, but I’ve read something that isn’t a cook book! It dawned on me recently that I wasn’t making enough time to read and I missed that. For my birthday, Dale got me a kindle and I have read loads since then – I absolutely love it! But before that, Tesco Books blog...

Knits to Give – review

If you read my blog regularly then you may have noticed that I am a huge Debbie Bliss fan. Her designs are absolutely beautiful and her books are so gorgeous to the point where I will sit and read them at night time instead of a novel! So I always get excited when I am...
Weekly Meal Plan - 23rd May

Weekly Meal Plan – 23rd May

I really must get organised as the badge says ‘Meal Planning Monday’ but I never get round to posting mine until Tuesday every week! Last week’s plan went well, apart from the Lamb Tagine – the less said about that the better. Lets just say a combination of stringy lamb and forgetting to cover the...

My Book – The Baking Pocket Bible

I can’t quite believe it – I’ve written a book! It’s in the shops and on Amazon and people are buying it! Those of you who follow me on twitter will probably know by now that last year I was approached by Crimson Publishing, who had been reading my blog and asked if I’d be...

Review – Weight Watchers ProPoints Cookbooks

Although I’m not actually following the Weight Watchers ProPoints plan myself, I have heard some very positive things about it through friends and twitter, so I was interested to see what the cookbooks were like when I was asked to review them. I have to say I was very surprised at the range of recipes...
The Ultimate Book of Baby Knits - Debbie Bliss

The Ultimate Book of Baby Knits – Debbie Bliss

Last year I was lucky enough to review The Knitter’s Year by Debbie Bliss and I loved it. The book still sits by my bed and every so often I flick through the gorgeous pictures – I’ve even just cast on the peg bag ready to grace my washing line in summer. So there was...

Recipe testing – Vanilla & Rhubarb Ice Cream

I was excited when Vanessa, who is in the process of writing a very exciting sounding cookery book called Prepped!, was looking for recipe testers. She has enlisted the help of many food bloggers to test out the recipes for her new book and report back how they went. The beauty of all the recipes...

Bake-a-boo

  There’s nothing I love better on a cold evening than snuggling down with a cookery book, flicking through and planning what I’m going to cook and bake. This time of year is the best because Christmas provides the perfect opportunity to bake and try out some new recipes. So I was delighted to be...

Home Bake

I love cookery books, especially anything to do with baking and cake decorating, so much so that I had to have two extra shelves put up in the kitchen to house them all! So I was very excited when I asked if I’d like to review a copy of Home Bake by Eric Lanlard. I’m...

Witch Craft

I’m sure it hasn’t escaped your attention that there is nothing I like better than a good bit of crafting and cooking, and what better time for crafty activities than Halloween?! So I was really excited to receive a review copy of this book – Witch Craft, compiled by Margaret McGuire and Alicia Kachmar. It...
