Easy, Weeknight Chilli Recipe

When the sun is shining, a bowl of chilli might not be the first dinner option that comes to mind. While dinner tables are being filled with salads, the somewhat wintery chilli is often overlooked. Not at my dinner table! I love the comforting embrace that a steaming bowl of chilli can give you, and if paired with salad or tortilla chips it can easily transition the seasons and remain a weeknight staple.

Double chocolate, fruit and nut bark

With Easter coming up, I’m hugely into homemade gifts at the minute - Pinterest I blame you. A little extra effort to give gifts a personal touch that make even the simplest of creations pretty special.

Justin Timberlake - The 20/20 Experience World Tour

I have been a Justin Timberlake fan since his curly haired, double-denim wearing *NSYNC days. Naturally therefore, when P text me saying she had a spare ticket for his 20/20 Experience World tour I was beyond excited. There may have been some screaming.

Simple Scones

Is anyone else watching Mary Berry’s cooking show over on BBC1? I’ve been watching it on iPlayer and I have to say, she is wonderful. The passion she has for simple, traditional recipes is incredible and they always manage to look mouth-wateringly good. After watching the episode on afternoon tea, I was inspired to make some scones, plus I still have ton of jam to get through – 5 jars, what was I thinking? It’s a lovely, quick recipe made with store cupboard ingredients – perfect for when you have guests over or just feel like putting your feet up and nibbling on something a little more refined. Serve these still warm with butter, jam and lashings of clotted cream if you’re feeling naughty.

Nailed it.

One thing you guys may not know about me – I have a slight obsession with nail art. Nothing over the top, I prefer a subtle design that doesn’t scream at you but is an extra detail to those who do notice it.
