Piping thin lines with icing, simplest is best

In the past week I have made Stork Custard Cookies, 3 times.  The children absolutely love them (and so do the parents).   I also had a bee in my bonnet to find the simplest and most efficient way to pipe the outlines.  Piping the lines to fill on the cookies was a bit of a challenge. The first time I ... Read More »

Kitchen Craft Burger making kit review

There are 2 meals which we have every week, the rest vary as much as possible.   During the week we have a home-made pizza night and Friday is burger night.  The patties are so easy to make and I always freeze at least half.   I don’t use egg in my burger patties as Fjord is allergic to egg and they ...

Kenwood Food Processor

I had an old Kenwood Food Processor which was my Mum’s, it was about 25 years old and still going strong, until I decided to grate mozzarella cheese in it (don’t try this, it’s lethal to food processors).  Just before I tried to grate the mozzarella, my mother in law told me that hers tore apart when she tried grating ...

Jamie Oliver Pizza Stone my lovely birthday gift

Once a week we have pizza for supper, usually because left overs make a great school lunch the following day for Fjord.  I have 3 metal pizza pans and make the dough in my bread machine.  For Christmas we were given a white pizza serving plate which was bought at PnP Hyper, when I went looking for another there were ...

PnP Kids Foam Blast

Sometimes I really like to share when I find a great new product.  PnP Foam Blast is my kids product of the month.  A while ago my Mum told me that my nieces in Durban love the PnP Foam Blast.  I had not noticed it in the Pick n Pay stores but found it at my local store an a ... Read More »

Mellerware Ma Baker bread machine – review

For a good few years I deliberated regarding whether to buy a bread machine, my primary concern was that it would be a white elephant. I heard tales from friends who have bread makers and don’t use them. In 2010 Cliff bought me a Russell Hobbs Breadman Jnr and I was in love from day 1. On average I used ... Read More »

Vanish for blood stains – amazing, it actually really works!

I recently accepted to publish a sponsored press release via My Scoop for Vanish Power O2 Powder on how to remove blood stains.   This subject was of particular interest to me, not that I have a secret life in the mafia but my 6-year-old son suffers terrible nose bleeds, often at night and it ruins his bed linen.  All of ...

Russell Hobbs biscuit and cookie maker Review

After my Imperial Cookie press died (after an all too short life), I set my sights on the Russell Hobbs Biscuit and Cookie maker.  I wanted to fall in love with it, but I couldn’t.  I loved the snazzy clip lock box which it came in, I loved the fact that it was electric instead of manual.  After trying 4 ...

Milk Frothers review, Salter, Stickocinno and Aerolatte

Now and then you will see me go on a bit of a rant about quality of service and products, both can really get me going.  Over weekends, starting the days with a yummy cappuccino is our regular indulgence.  Last year we went through 3 hand held milk frothers.  The first 2 were the same Salter frother which comes with ...

Solution to excess moisture problem with Defy 600 SE oven

I asked my husband Clifford to write this blog post to help others who also have a problem with excess steam in an oven.  The solution was so simple in the end.  Cliff refers specifically to cooking roasts but actually absolutely everything which we cooked created a very moist environment and when I opened the oven I would be blasted ...
