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…

M&S Turkey Feast Hand Cooked Crisps

I wasn’t going to succumb to the turkey crisps this year because the ones I have tried in previous years have either been too salty, or just take like roast chicken crisps. So what swung it this year? Well the M&S Turkey Feast Hand Cooked Crisps were saying all the right things.  Yes these roast turkey and all the trimmings proclaim to deliver potato crisps flavoured with turkey and cranberry, and carrot and parsnip crisps. I love veggie crisps they are scrummy so I am a happy bunny that M&S have included these too.  I can’t for the life of me…

M&S Milk and Cookies Granola

Most granolas are averaging around £4.00 so kudos to M&S for keeping this far more affordable and fair. So what can we expect from this granola? Well the description is – ‘Dark chocolate oat…

Limited Edition M&S Red Velvet Curd

I know that some of you do not get the hype of red velvet however I am firmly a red velvet cheerleader. When I saw the release of the M&S Red Velvet Curd I knew without a shadow of a doubt my hands needed to get a hold of that jar.  Released as part of their Christmas range, I wasn’t at all sure on what this was going to taste like. Was it meant to be like red velvet whipped up in a jar, would it just be the colour of red velvet but taste nothing like it, would it just…

Quality Street Gingerbread Matchmakers

Normally I am very anti Christmas foods being sold when it is still hot and 4 months till the big day. That being said I have said it before and I will say it again, I do break this rule when it comes to gingerbread, because frankly gingerbread is great all year round. If you haven’t seen these already then gingerbread lovers these new Quality Street Gingerbread Matchmakers will peak your interest.  Limited edition and currently only available in Tesco, I made it my mission to find these and thankfully I did not have to look too far. With it’s red…
