Om nom nom! It’s been a while since I’ve posted something other than nails, so I thought I’d give it a stab to prove I don’t just sit around painting my nails all day. Sometimes I hang out in the kitchen! I can’t take full credit for these tasties – my awesomesauce sister was bragging on Facebook about hers so I stole her recipe. It’s just a basic scone recipe, but I thought I’d share because everybody loves cheese and bacon. Plus they’re rolled into scrolls instead of just a lumpy mclumplump scone lump.
I also managed to get a few pictures for you. Because you know, I love you and stuff ❤
It’s summer here in New Zealand, my least favourite season for many many reasons. I prefer winter fashion, I hate getting hot and sunburnt and sticky, and I hate feeling like it has to be the “perfect summer” every year. Summer is just icky.
Physically one of my biggest problems with summer is that I always dry out, especially my legs and lips. No matter how well I look after my lips, they always end up sad and cracked in summer. And while I love Lush lip scrubs, with my money issues I can’t justify buying them when I could make my own with household ingredients!
So here’s a very simple quick lip scrub I made at home. It might not be the prettiest scrub around, but it works wonders and it tastes yummy too 😉
Last week I tried something new for dinner and Sir Husband liked it so much I decided it was worthy of sharing! However, a word of warning: if you’re not fantastic with spicy food (like me) don’t put quite as much curry paste in as I did 😄
I found this recipe in a random food magazine from 2009. I think it was Recipes+, but I’m not 100% sure on that.
Anyway, here we go:
Good morning lovely readers!
I hope you all have been keeping well. This week was my first full week back at work for the year -_- It just seemed so wrong to be waking up and having to put clothes on that were not pajamas.
We have a shopping trip tomorrow planned as well as an annoucement, so keep your eyes peeled for that. It is very exciting :3
Anyway yesterday at work we sadly farewelled three staff (we have another two leaving in a couple of weeks too). So yesterday while making dinner (yes I am a domestic goddess…or just mad) I whipped up some banana pikelets. The wonder with these things is that you can do other things while you are making them…like eat them :o. I promise that most of the pikelets made it to work.
So here is your recipe for Banana Pikelets.
Right. Since it’s the New Year, and it’s summer, I’ve decided to try to be good this year! So instead of pigging out on chocolates for dessert last night (we got given a lot of chocolate over Christmas), I made some tasty summer berry smoothies instead.
One of my favourite things about living where I do is that we have a Farro supermarket not TOO far away. Walking distance even. It’s a bit of a stretch for me because I hate wasting my time walking, but hey. It’s summer. And walking is good. I like going to Farro because I really do feel like everything there is super fresh; best of all, they support small New Zealand growers. Plus there’s something neat about being able to buy a hot fresh coffee from a counter in the centre of the supermarket, then paying for it at the checkouts.
Anyway, yesterday I went for a big ole walk out to Farro and picked up a random selection of fresh fruits and vegetables… This is relevant because this is where I got the idea that smoothies would be an excellent and healthy alternative to rubbish.
Without further rambling… You will need:
Time for more recipes!
Now if you don’t like meat, or getting your hands dirty….or getting your hands dirty with meat. I suggest you don’t try this recipe. As it requires a good pair of clean hands to mix it all together.
I do love hamburgers and so does Gabby, but what with my trying desperately to be good I’ve had to come up with healthier choices. So these hamburgers are still tasty but a lot better for you than a Big Mac.
This recipe makes five pattys, which feeds two, well it could feed more but Gabby eats four of them 😮 It is pretty easy to add or take away from this recipe. If you need help with that drop me a message.
Before we get started this is our 100th post! Yaaay! A big thank you to everyone who has subscribed, commented, viewed and supported Delindel and I in the last couple of months. Never did we think that our ramblings about craft, makeup, food and shopping would attract the attention it has. So thank you very much.
So what do you do with those bananas that have ripened too quickly and are a little to mushy to eat? MAKE A CAKE! (you can just make the cake then or you can put them in the freezer for a later date). Banana cake is my most favourite cake in the world, then lemon, then strawberry and then vanilla. I love chocolate but I am a bit meh about chocolate flavoured things. Anyway Banana cake is best served with lemon icing :3 it’s my favourite icing OM NOM NOM! So I am going to share with you my Edmond’s Cookbook Banana Cake with Lemon Icing :3
