Hello Fresh week 2

So last week I discussed my initial thoughts on Hello Fresh so I thought I would give a final run down. I was a tiny bit irked last week that the box this week came with 3 cans of food. Not that I have an aversion to canned goods – its a cheaper way of eating fruit and vegetables in some cases. I think it … Continue reading Hello Fresh week 2

Strawberry and mascarpone brownies

I feel like these brownies which evolved from cheesecake brownies are the height of summer decadence.

(I do have to admit I did keep talking … Continue reading Hello Fresh – Week One

Here is a … Continue reading A little homeware update

Rice Krispy Treats (Marshmallow Squares)

There’s something about cobbling a recipe together based on something you’ve been in a cartoon vaguely therapeutic. While throwing together ingredients for this I couldn’t help thinking back to an old episode of the Simpsons. You know the one where Marge is sent to jail and the town riots because they can’t get her rice krispy treats. While I can’t claim I need a statue … Continue reading Rice Krispy Treats (Marshmallow Squares)
