Flaming cherries jubilee...


Impress your friends...

Need a quick and easy dessert that will create a stir, then this easy cherry compote fits the bill, add a splash of Cointreau or brandy at the end, warm through then light with a long match, stand well back and wait for the applause.

Cherry clafoutis...



French classic that’s ideal to serve after a Sunday lunch, made with a sweetened batter, not unlike Yorkshire pudding, it tastes great served with scoops of vanilla ice cream or a soft spoonful of crème fraiche.

Superbreaks : Chester Zoo Review...


One of the lovely member of the Community Outreach Team for Superbreak.com kindly asked me if my family would like an opportunity to go to one of the great attractions from one of their fabulous day's out selection .

We are always looking for somewhere fun to take the kids especially when they are off school so we were very excited in picking a place to go.I got sent a list of some great places to visit  like Cadbury World, Chester Zoo, the London Eye, the London Dungeons and lots of other great days out.

One Unworn Dress Made Into A Much Loved Skirt...


When we went on holiday last week I wanted to take something that was light to carry and could look different on 2 nights out.Looking though my wardrobe I didn't really have any skirts to match these tops which I wanted to take then I found this dress (wish I took a picture before!) which I whizzed off into the garage and made it into a skirt.
