Favourite Recipes from Bloggers

I follow some amazing bloggers, from Beauty and Lifestyle to Stationery and Gaming, they are all very original in their own way. What I love reading the most is anything to do with food, most important bloggers writing about different recipes that you can try for yourself. Some of the bloggers I follow share some amazing recipes that I just need to make myself! But I’ve never had the time or effort to actually do it.

I love bloggers who share a little bit of everything, whenever you visit their blog, there’s something new. Today I thought I would share with you some of my favourite recipes that I’ve come across from just some of the bloggers I follow. They’ve created some amazing recipes, they all sound really easy to make yourself. So if you are stuck on what to do for dinner, why don’t you don’t out these bloggers!

Stay on that wellness kick with T Plus

During the cold, Winter months, I drink quite a lot of hot drinks to keep myself warm, there’s nothing better than waking up to a steaming, hot coffee or having a cup of hot chocolate before jumping into bed. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been introduced to a new kind of tea, an immune and wellness-boosting teas from T Plus.

I don’t personally watch much television, one of the only shows I love watching is Dragons’ Den. I love being introduced to new products that people have created themselves, some people are very creative and it’s amazing to watch them pitching to the five Dragons. Last month, I came across T Plus, thanks to their journey to the Den.

From the moment I was introduced to the T Plus range, I knew I had to get my hands on them to become a little bit healthier. These aren’t just any teas, T Plus has introduced the benefits of a vitamin supplement, helping everyone to get the right goodness they need when they need it most.

Treat Your Mum to a bakerdays Letterbox Cake

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and didn’t forget what yesterday was! Yes, that’s right, I’m talking about Mother’s Day, we all try our hardest to make this day special for that Mum figure in our lives. From taking them out to afternoon tea or an evening meal, or even something as simple as flowers and chocolates. Our Mum’s deserve a special day, I surprised my Mum with a Letterbox Cake from bakerdays.

This is actually the first Mother’s Day that I’ve not been with my Mum, I was still able to celebrate it with her as she came down from Nuneaton, along with my Dad and sisters. We didn’t do much to celebrate, I gave her a collection of presents as well as her card, she’s also received some gorgeous flowers! She was absolutely over the moon with the Letterbox Cake as well, asking me twenty questions about the company behind it.

February 2018 – National Crepe Day

This Friday is National Crepe Day, so I thought it would be nice to introduce you to The Works. Now if you follow me on Instagram, I’m positive this place isn’t new to you as I’m always sharing my date nights on there. When I heard that Friday 2 February was National Crepe Day, I knew I just had to speak about this place, I’ve mentioned it in a couple of my monthly favourites as well. I think me and Yasmine are a little addicted to The Works.

Blogmas Day 12 // Gingerbread House Day

One thing that I love doing around this time of year, is decorating a Gingerbread House! When I found out Tuesday 12 December was Gingerbread House Day, I just had to decorate a Gingerbread House. I love doing this every year, every year I try and decorate some form of House, last year I decorated a Rocky Road House. Which for someone who doesn’t like Gingerbread was perfect.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a Rocky Road House, so I had to go with the traditional Gingerbread House. Oh well, it will keep Yasmine happy! Making and decorating a Gingerbread House is seen as a Christmas tradition, it’s a great way of getting the kids together and having fun. It’s interesting watching them decorate a house, using their imagination.

Blogmas Day 10 // Winter Hot Chocolate Favourites

With nights getting colder and darker, I love sitting down with a hot chocolate and a movie cuddled up with the partner. I swear I drink more hot chocolate during the colder months, it’s just the perfect drink! I hardly drink hot chocolate throughout the year until winter comes around, it’s just a thing for me.

It’s definitely the perfect time on this cold, winters night to sit down with a hot chocolate and watch your favourite Christmas movie. I know that’s what I’m doing! I thought I would share with you some of my hot chocolate favourites. There’s so many out there to chose from, but there’s a few I keep going back to each time.

November 2017 – Cake Day

This post is a little special, yesterday was my 22 Birthday! Meaning a lot of cake was consumed, today relates to my birthday as it’s Cake Day. Who knew there was such a thing!? This continues on from my monthly National Day post, I love doing these as I’ve found some interesting days throughout the year. There are many different ways you can celebrate Cake Day.

Including eating cake with family and friends or even making your own cakes to mark the occasion. For me, I wanted to share with you something I recently came across, Bake in a Box from Dr Oetker. There are three different flavours you can choose from: Banana and Choc Chip, Double Chocolate & Lemon and Poppy Seed. All three sound amazing and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them.

KitKat Chocolatory London

While I was in London at the beginning of this month, I had the opportunity to visit the KitKat Chocolatory at the Westfield Shopping Centre. As I follow Nestle UK & I News on Twitter they were tweeting about the launch. I just had to visit the pop-up shop as it was only open for five weeks.

PROPERCORN is popcorn #doneproperly

I have got some very exciting news. Thanks to PROPERCORN, I received a cute treasure chest full of popcorn. I mean literally filled to the brim, I received four packets of each of the six flavours. I was so excited to receive this chest as I have yet to try a few of their flavours.

Fiery Worcester Sauce & Sun-Dried Tomato

Now when I first heard about this flavour I wasn’t too sure, as I’m not a massive fan of Tomato. The flavouring is not as bad as it sounds but wow there is a pop with the Worcester Sauce though! Gives a fiery after taste. These are perfect for those of you who love a kick in your food.

Smooth Peanut & Almond

I really wanted to try this flavour as soon as I heard about them. Seeing them in the box I was really happy to try them. For me these taste a bit like Peanut Butter, something that I’m not much of a fan of. But I do like this. My biggest thing though was that there didn’t seem to taste much Almond.

Sweet Coconut & Vanilla

I have already reviewed this flavour on my blog when I attended the launch of the Holland & Barrett More store in Plymouth. This is probably my favourite flavour. I absolutely adore Coconut, what I love about the flavouring is that the Coconut is not overpowering. You are able to taste Vanilla and not just like every other kernel.

Lightly Sea Salted

I’m not really too sure on this particular flavouring as there doesn’t seem to be much there. I can only describe it as a bit dry, kinda like the popcorn I get using my machine at home. The flavouring doesn’t seem to be consistent with every kernel, one you’ll taste would be filled with Sea Salt with the next only lightly or maybe even none!

Sour Cream & Black Pepper

Now, to me I see this as an odd mixture for a flavour. I have never seen Sour Cream & Black Pepper before, normally it’s always Sour Cream & Chive so it’s nice to see another mixture. The Sour Cream adds a creamy taste with a kick from the Black Pepper, that for me is a bit too much.

Sweet & Salty

Sweet and Salty, the most original flavour out of all of them. It’s still not like the packet normal popcorn it has got something special to it which I enjoy. Along with Sweet Coconut and Vanilla this is probably my second favourite flavour. It’s just a simple flavour that works really well!

So that’s all guys, hope I have made you a bit hungry! Let me know in the comments you favourite popcorn flavour. If you haven’t tried PROPERCORN I would seriously recommend them. Would like to say a massive thank-you to PROPERCORN for sending me these, I am in love.
