Move over Valentine’s Day it’s all about Galentine’s Day!

Great British Biscotti Co Pecan Pie and Toffee Apple

That’s right the Great British Biscotti Co is back on the blog! To say I loved their first offerings would be an understatement.

Itsu Sweet Chocolate and Banana Dessert Dumplings

Itsu aren’t the first to twist their classic savoury dishes into a sweet dessert, but they’re certainly the first I’ve tried. The picture alone makes me want to dive right in, and can only hope they turn out as good as they look.  Coming in at £3.50 a pop, each box contains 15 dessert dumplings. These can be found in frozen aisles at  Tesco, Waitrose and Ocado. They come in three flavours, Chocolate & Banana, Caramelised Apple…

Party Seasons: Champagne & Prosecco Cocktails

We are getting close to the glitz, the glamour and the festivities and a glass of bubbles couldn’t be more perfect at such a time. It is tradition that the bubbles are flowing in our house on Christmas Day, as well as throwing in a few cocktail creations thereafter to see us through to New Year. So naturally I cannot think of a better time to share some champagne and prosecco cocktails to really get us in the party spirit, and perhaps give you some drink inspiration.  Last year I put together a few recipes of varying cocktails, FYI The Sparkling…
