I’m a great, unconditional fan of porridge. Some may hate it, but I certainly love it. It’s my staple breakfast which I eat on average 5 times a week – usually in the 5-minute, no-cook office breakfast version. It does its job and tastes great, but I’m always more than happy to use a chance to cook my porridge. Being in the festive season, I decided to create a Christmas version of my favourite breakfast. Here’s a recipe for my perfect festive, warming, aromatic, gingerbread porridge!
You probably know it already, but I’ll say it just in case: Christmas is just around the corner. Some of us have already finished their Christmas gift shopping. Others, perhaps, still haven’t even started. Whichever group you belong to, you might want to add some original, simple DIY gifts to your list. The idea I’m bringing you today will be perfect to use as a gift for someone who loves to bake. It’s very flexible too, so you can easily adjust it to further personalize this little present. The thing I’m talking about is a DIY cookie mix in a jar.
December for me is usually filled with cooking and baking. Honestly, it feels like I barely leave the kitchen! If it wasn’t for work, I’d likely build a pillow fortress in the kitchen for December, to stay there even for those rare times when I decide to get some sleep. This time, I took a short break from playing with food and decided to work on a little inedible project for the Christmas table – cutlery bands!
Hey everyone! Christmas season is almost there – and that means we’re in the heat of trying to find the perfect gifts for our nearest and dearest. Last year, I compiled a huge list of ideas for Christmas gifts for him, her, parents, grandparents, a list of stocking fillers and more! Here’s a shortcut to all parts of the guide – I hope you find them useful! 🙂
Today’s recipe is an excellent idea for a party snack, but it can also be used as part of a lunchbox. Delicious chicken nuggets, but with a twist! Healthy (oven-baked instead of deep-fried), with Corn Flakes as breading. Yummy!
Even though it’s summer and most days are warm to even hot, I never have enough of high, almost tropical temperatures. The forecast for Wednesday last week was relatively poor (only around 20°C, with possible showers?!), so because summer decided not to come to me that day, I thought I’d go and chase it myself. In the city where I used to study (just a 25-minute train ride from my town), there are indoor tropical gardens – or, as we call it, a palm house (palm trees don’t normally grow here in this climate). I believe it’s a similar place to more popular Kew Gardens in London, though I’m yet to visit those, so I can only guess.
The end of June marked my parents’ 30th wedding anniversary. Over 30 years together! I hope I can one day find someone to spend decades with too. My parents decided not to throw a huge party, so we celebrated in a small group, just my parents, me and my grandma (my sister was away on a school trip that weekend). And what better way to celebrate at home than to have some delicious food, right? My mum made a roast dinner while I decided to go a little extra making a cake. Spoiler alert: it was delicious!
