Eating Out at The Squirrel Inn Hurtmore

The Squirrel Inn is situated just off the A3 in the village of Hurtmore and boasts a variety of locally sourced food, and the perfect place for a family gathering.  A stark comparison to the week we have had, it was a lovely sunny Saturday evening, and all the more reason to dine alfresco. For once the garden furniture was comfortable and not so squeezed together you felt you were eating on each others laps. The menu had a good mix of fish, meat and vegetarian choices that would suit everyone. Although the starters sounded rather scrummy, we skipped these and went straight…

Joe Browns Autumn Winter Style

New season new style. Autumn is definitely my favourite season, the leaves are turning, the nights drawing in, the new season styles are filling the glossy magazines, and not to mention it’s my birthday!  The Fun Fair at Joe Browns has arrived and it is one to get excited about.

Krispy Kreme Reese’s Peanut Butter Crunch

It was a hallelujah moment when Krispy Kreme introduced peanut butter to their doughnuts, and in actual fact it was this along with their Lotus Biscoff doughnut that made me fall a little in love with Krispy Kreme. Like others I mourned the loss of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Doughnut shell, but fear not, with 76% of the vote it’s back, and it has bought a new doughnutty friend. Say hello to Krispy Kreme Reese’s Peanut Butter Crunch doughnut!  Krispy Kreme have taken their classic ring doughnut and have coated it in sticky Reese’s peanut butter icing, and topped it with chocolate…

The Grown Up Chocolate Company Lovely Fruity Nutty Crunchy

  The first I had heard of The Grown Up Chocolate Company was when the super-dooper, lovely bubbly Cupcake Snack Warrior over at Reaching for Refreshment sent me one within a stash of goodies. These bars are not for little monsters and luckily I don’t come under that category! So what do I have here? The Grown Up Chocolate Company Lovely Fruity Nutty Crunchy Bar* is what I have. I challenge someone to say that 10 times over! First off I am a big fan for UK made products, and I am pleased too see these bars are ‘handmade with love…
