Unicorn Rainbow Cake {& how I did it!}

Every birthday cake my children have asked me for – bar one – I have made & decorated myself. This cake making and decorating lark is no easy feat – so when Annabelle asked me for a Unicorn Rainbow cake I knew I had a challenge ahead of me. So, I did what we all do when we’re in need some inspiration – I paid a visit to the trusted land of Pinterest. As expected, it was oozing with inspiration & ideas that I needed to make Annabelle’s cake a reality. First things first – I needed food colouring to…

My not-so-Pinterest-perfect Instagram Brownies

Instagram Brownies; as soon as I spotted these glorious little creations over on Pinterest, it lead me to {what is now…} one of my favourite YouTube channels {Nerdy Nummies}; I had to give them a go. I love taking photos and I especially love Instagram, so making these seemed like such a fun project to do. They’re also surprisingly simple to make and luckily we had everything we needed at home. The things you will need: – Brownies – Rainbow fizzy belts – Oreos {for the lens} – Peanut butter or chocolate frosting {I chose the frosting option} – Giant chocolate…

One pot Beef Curry with Red Tractor Beef & Lamb

Having quite a few mouths to feed every day, one-pot meals have recently become my favourite meal to make. They are something you can put into the one dish in no time at all, pop into the oven and enjoy quality time with the family as it cooks. We’re quite a busy family, from my partner being out at work, school runs and not forgetting that I am a stay at home working Mum too. So having these one-pot meals are a bit of a lifesaver and allow us all to take a timeout to live a little slower. We’ve…

Recipe – Mini Chicken Pot Pies

Like anyone else, I love a good meat filled pie. Usually with a side order of potatoes, vegetables with a delicious helping of gravy. Plus, nothing beats hearing the crust crack as you cut into the top it of it too. Or is that just me? But when it comes to catering for the masses at say, a party {or a small gathering of folk} for example, I like to make things smaller to make in bulk to serve up to my guests. So, this week’s recipe is for Mini Chicken pot pies. If I’m honest – I have only ever, in…
