Warburtons Giant Crumpets

Not only are we almost over the hump of the working week, would you believe it is one month today till Christmas?! Is anyone else feeling pretty darn festive now!? Today’s review is all about the humble crumpet. No matter what the time of day there is nothing more satisfying than a hot toasted buttery, okay peanut buttery crumpet.

November’s Bakedin Baking Club

This week marked the second Bakedin Baking Club box uniquely designed by Michel Roux. I was a little undecided following the First Bakedin Baking Club subscription and have been eagerly anticipating what the next box will hold, in the hope it will make up my mind.  Once dispatched an email was sent with the ingredients I would need. From the list of ingredients I was a little unsure what the bake would be, and in actual fact feared it would be a take on a Victoria Sponge.

Hotel Chocolat Rhubarb and Custard

From the first bite I…

Happy Hump Day Everyone! Today’s post is not just about any old popcorn but cocktail popcorn. Yes there is such a thing. Courtesy of the fabulous Cupcake Snack Warrior who a little while back sent me one of her amazing food packages which included Joe & Seph’s Fruity Cosmopolitan, which as it happens is one of four boozy pouches they have on offer. It’s common knowledge that Cosmopolitan is my all time favourite cocktail, well we all want to be a little like those ladies in Sex and the City, the very fact that Joe & Seph’s have bought the cocktail to the popcorn…

Waitrose Christmas Millionaires Salted Caramel Shortbread

Christmas is fast approaching and Shops and Supermarkets are emblazoned with Christmas everything, there is no escaping it. Whilst popping out to grab some lunch at our new Waitrose, yes I got their festive sarnie and boy was it a gooden, something caught my eye and it was this little number; Waitrose Christmas Millionaires Salted Caramel Shortbread.   The salted caramel craze is still going strong however it wasn’t what won me over, in fact I hadn’t clocked it was even salted caramel until further inspection. What did win me over was the simple fact it was glittery and looked rather exciting…
