Degustabox – August

August’s Degustabox arrived and as aways the girls hurried around to see what goodies were hiding away inside for us and more importantly what they could try and pinch! Degustaboxes are always really exciting for us, I am a massive foodie but with kids I think it is so easy to get stuck into a rut of buying and cooking the same things week in week out.

One particularly dull Tuesday afternoon we were having a bit of a slow paced day, the girls began to get restless so we decided to enjoy a little indoor picnic together. They were so excited when…

Making Frobscottles Inspired by the BFG

You would have to have been living under a rock to not know about the new BFG movie being released in a matter of days time!

We decided to create a strawberries and cream frobscottle it was really experimental we just went around the shop picking up bits that sounded good and threw it all together! Ingredients: Fresh…
