*Welsh Lamb and Halloumi Salad with a Whiskey Drizzle

I’m not the biggest fan of salad – there needs to be a little something-something more than just leaves for me to dive into one – but the halloumi and lamb are the stars here, as well as the sweet whiskey drizzle I whipped up to go on top.  It’s the perfect companion to the salty halloumi.  Very easy to make and a lil’ bit boozy – once you’ve got the base down, you can use it to make any flavour of dressing you like. 🙂

*Furbo: The Treat Dispensing Dog Cam

The absolute worst thing about having Bungle (besides when he wipes his butt on my lovely, white bed sheets…), is having to leave him! I’d take him everywhere with me if I could. As much as I’d like to wheel him around in the trolley while I do my weekly food shop (…he’d love that!), it just isn’t going to happen, but do you know what? He might as well be there with me because I never stop thinking about him and worrying that he’s okay at home on his own and isn’t wrecking the place while I’m out. Enter Furbo, the treat-tossing pet camera!

*How to Host a Banging Christmas Party in 10 Steps

Can you believe that it’ll be Christmas Eve this time next week!?  Crazy!  How many Christmas Parties have you been to so far?  If you haven’t, then I’ll bet you’ve got one coming up this week.  Or are you hosting one yourself?  If so, then this post’s for you.  Hosting at Christmas is one of my favourite things to do (I love planning and organising around Christmas more than any other time of year), but it can also be really stressful (in fact, I wrote a whole post about it here).  So here’s my ten step guide to hosting a banging Christmas Party.

*Buttermilk Plum Cake

M&S got in touch recently and asked if I’d like to try baking with some of their berries. This plum cake is incredibly simple to make and turned out so well when I served it up at a recent barbecue that I made it again a few days later. 🙂

*How to Host the Best Ever Barbecue

I LOVE a good barbecue, and over the weekend we hosted yet another one in our back garden, thanks to the lovely people at Marks and Spencer who recently sent me an email asking if I’d like to try some of their goodies for the grill.
