KitchenAid Stand Mixers are 30% off at House of Fraser – under £350!

If, like me, you’re lucky enough to already have one, then you’ll know how lovely they are.

Especially mad-eyed, scrappily visualised artistic ones (the March Hare I spotted in this post currently hangs on my bedroom wall, making me smile every day). So letting out a little “Oooh!” at this hare mug when I saw it on Etsy wasn’t terribly surprising. Isn’t it a beauty? I love the...

A Perfect Italian Menu (by some lovely Italians!) – Simple, Easy, Bruschetta Recipe.

Last week, thanks to BookingsForYou, we spent a day having a fabulous meal prepared for us by a family of Italian chefs. Not only that, but the team from Giovannini Enterprises were teaching us how to cook the menu. And giving us the confidence that yes, this really is food we can make for our own families. And oh my goodness does it taste good. So here’s the first of our four part special on an amazing Italian meal you can...
