Aldi's Kitchen Utensils : Review...


Earlier this week I got sent some lovely bits for baking and serving food to try out and review. These are all from Aldi's Home baking Specialbuy's range, which will be in-store from the 6th March.


I always love to try out new goodies for the kitchen, especially if it involves baking. As usual, I got carried away with photo's, so I still have some fun things left to try out. I thought I would break the post into 2 and share how I have been using them all.

Jar Amnesty Challenge : The Weekend Blog Hop...


This month Foodies100 and The English Provender Co. have come up with a fun recipe challenge. They have invited bloggers to come up with a tasty recipe. With a chance of winning one of ten £100.00 vouchers for Waitrose/John Lewis.

So today I came up with a tasty new idea to go with this delicious Sweet Tomato and Chilli Chutney. Adding a new twist on one of my family favourite, Chilli Con Carne recipes.


Everyone knows that chutney goes great with cheese. Does a cold Sweet Tomato and Chilli Chutney go together with a hot and spicy homemade Chilli Con Carne though? That is the question we had to answer with dinner this evening.

Punpkin Bread...


This handsome, tasty loaf is particularly good served warm from the oven with cheese.

You can of course make your own pumpkin purée by cooking chunks of pumpkin with a little water in a covered pan until soft, and then puréeing it in a food processor or blender.

Frankie & Benny’s New Kids Menu: Review...

Off the kids menu : The ice cream candy shop...

Last week we were kindly invited to Frankie & Benny’s to try out the recently launched new kids menu. Being big fans of the Italian-American restaurant chain we were very pleased to be asked.

Our favourite restaurant of theirs is in the Meadowhall Shopping Centre. This time though we went to the one in Nottingham. We met my Husband from work and off we went, all with bellies rumbling.
