• Texas, Mexico….. Its all in a days shopping.

    We all love something different, something tasty, something spicy. So when Morrisons started to dish out some Tex-Mex oven meals I was more than ready to give them a try. And so, wearing my best bullet belt, sombrero and handle bar moustache I set out to taste them all.First up I decided to give the Blazin’ Chicken Burrito a try. Now I must admit, I left them in the oven for too long. I did exactly what it said on the wrapper but it was just a couple of minutes too long. As the disclaimer says, these instructions are just a guide. You should always keep an eye on things.…

  • The challenge of the sponge mix

    A while back I bought this sponge mix from Morrisons and Saturday I decided to give it a try and bake a cake. So I mixed it all with some water and egg as advised by the instructions on the bag and pour it in a bread-cake tin. I then defrosted some of the berries I had in the freezer and top the sponge mixture with them. Put it in a preheated oven at 180C and this is what I got: My fruits got on the bottom of the cake instead of staying on top…yup! Maybe that is the way the sponge cake should grow and not allow fruits to…

  • Daddy cooks with M Savers

    My hubby is not the best cook in the world but he can do quite good sometimes. He makes the best steak and potato pie! After we shopped at Morrisons he decided that he should also give the MSavers recipes a chance. Also he really enjoy eating the Meatballs in tomato sauce with spaghetti that i cooked thank to the recipes on Morrisons website.So last week he decided to make burgers. This is not a MSavers recipe but the ingredients he used were from the MSavers range and he used the method shown on Morrisons website. My husband used the beef and pork mice that i used for the meatballs but of course you can use only…

  • Morrisons Savers Summer

    As you know i am pregnant and not up to a lot of things this summer. Last summer we went camping quite a lot and my daughter loved it. However this summer we had to restrict our outings and find ways to save money in any way possible. In about 3 months our new baby will arrive hopefully well and healthy. It’s actually easier then i thought to have fun in London without spending lots of money. With the help of Morrisons and Sarah Willingham i learned and remembered how to cook and have fun without spending lots of money. If you have want to learn why not check out Morrisons…

  • Desktop picnic

    Picnic at my desk! How cool is this concept?! The other week the lovely people from Morrisons send me a hamper formed of cold deserts and decorations for my work desk. Even artificial grass – “faux grass”! So good for when is raining outside. Is like being in the park! Somehow… I love eating my lunch outside when is sunny but if that is not possible then i can have a picnic at my desk with the help of the grass! Here are a couple of pictures that my hubby took when i got home! And yes that is a bottle of wine! But please believe me i didn’t drink…
