I went and filled up the car with petrol the other day. As you walk in and head over to the checkout to pay, they always have some deal going on whether it be packets of chips, drinks or chocolate. This time they had a deal with Mars Bars, buy 2 get 2 free. I saw these and immediately thought I need to make something with Mars Bars in it.
The chocolate bars sat on the kitchen bench for a couple of days until I decided on what to do with them.
Yes, yes, yes!! It’s Shrove Tuesday! In Australia, it is known as Pancake Day.
For two years now we have celebrated Pancake Day and enjoyed indulging in some pancakes for dinner. I make up a whole heap of yummy fluffy pancakes, and we cover them in a variety of delicious condiments, strawberries, Hershey’s chocolate sauce, whipped cream and whatever else we can use.
So if you feel like making some pancakes today for lunch, dinner or dessert, I have found six yummy pancake recipes that you could try.
As the school day comes to an end, and the kids have endured a hot day at school, I always like to make them a cold drink to cool them down.
A slushie is one drink that they enjoy and most of the time I use apple juice as a base. But when I attended the Bloggers BBQ I came upon another alternative that I could use and it sounded much healthier.
Did you know that today is World Nutella Day! I had heard about it but didn’t know when the actual day was. If my kids found out this morning, then I would have had to make something with Nutella in it. I don’t have time on a school morning to do any baking so I might have to surprise them and make a yummy baked treat today.
So the kids are back at school, and I spent most of the time looking after them during the holidays. Now I thought with Valentines Day coming up, it would be nice if I steered some of the looking after over to my hubby.
With just 11 days to go until Valentines Day, I jumped on Pinterest and found 10 special treats for your Valentine!
I might need to give hubby a few hints as those chocolates and flowers in a vase look fantastic. Flowers and chocolates in one, you can’t go wrong. And those Chocolate Strawberry Hearts look delish. Hubby loves strawberries, so that’s a yummy treat for him.
Are you planning anything special for your Valentine?
See these little balls covered with desiccated coconut and chocolate flake, well they were the third batch that I had made for the family. They didn’t last long, just two days in the fridge, and all of them had been gobbled up.
When I received my Sunsol 10+ Muesli products to review, I knew that I had to use one of the muesli’s as an ingredient to make something delicious. So after testing a few recipe ideas, I came up with these scrumptious little balls of goodness. Say hello to my Chocolate, Peanut butter, Milo Balls!
They are so yummy and chocolatey. And easy to make. You just put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix. I consider them to be good for you as well as they have 1 1/2 cups of Ancient Grains and Superfruits muesli in them. A healthy little snack for when you need an afternoon boost of energy.
Today I went along to the Bloggers BBQ held by Kids Business. It was a great event, and I had a lovely time talking to some of the brands that were there. One of the brands that I was happy to meet was Passage Foods. They have a wide range of sauces and kits to make a whole lot of quick yummy meals for the family.
While attending the blogger’s event we could sample some of these foods from their range. Hubby loved the Butter Chicken and went back for seconds. So I knew we had to make this for a dinner during the week. Before leaving the Passage Foods stand, we were given a goodie bag which included some of the sauces that we could try. To hubby’s luck, it included a packet of the Street Kitchen North Indian Butter Chicken.
So for dinner tonight we are having…
Marinate the chicken in the Garlic and Ginger PasteHeat oil until hot, then add the spice mixAdd the marinated chicken and saute until sealedAdd North Indian Butter Chicken SauceStir, then reduce heat to simmer, stirring occasionally. Simmer for 15-20 minsJust before serving we added 2 tablespoons of cream which you can add for a smoother curryOnce ready serve on a bed of rice
While cooking this meal, the aromas, which were coming out of the kitchen, were fantastic. I love it when a meal smells so good in the midst of cooking. The kids loved it as well and went back for seconds. When they go back for more I know that it’s going to be asked for again.
It was easy to prepare and quick to make. A perfect family dinner.
