This week I’m loving pancakes. Since moving home a few months ago haven’t made pancakes once! That is a crime against food that had to be rectified, which I did today by having banana sour cream pancakes with bacon (recipe coming up this week) for brunch It’s also a perfect recipe for a generous brunch for one, which is how we roll sometimes!
Here are my picks of people who are doing pancakes right.
Summer is here! Well….at the very least June is here. The sun is out, tennis is on the TV and there are strawberries in my fridge. Time for ice cream! A Coke float has been on my mind aaall week. I NEED to make one this weekend, they are so tasty and remind me a lot of my childhood.
On a healthier ice cream making note, banana ice cream actually sounds really delicious.
This week I’m loving doughnuts. Mostly in anticipation of my trip to Manchester this weekend, and what do they have in Manchester? Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Y.U.M. They are my absolute favourite doughnuts and I can’t wait to get my paws on a box of three. Two simple glazed and one raspberry filled. I have a simple doughnut palette but simple is best in this case.
That fine looking doughnut above was made my me, using this recipe. I tackled the challenge of frying them, and it wasn’t as scary or stressful as I expected! They are cake doughnuts, rather than the yeasted variety, that’s the next challenge!
It’s Eurovision weekend! There will be a themed party at mine with my Eurovision geek besties…there will be homemade scorecards….and these doughnuts. I know they’re not European but it’s the perfect excuse to try them for the first time. Hear how it goes next week! Oh, and above is the best ever entrant, Celine back in 1988.
I’ve got an old set of drawers that need a new lease of life, I’m deciding between this, this or this. And I found some awesome tips here.
This salad looks like it would be completely delicious and satisfying, perfect as summer approaches.
Next week I’m taking part in the Tea and Scones Blog Party with TSA, Tuberous Sclerosis Association, details can be found here. My post will be featured on Wednesday with four other lovely bloggers posting Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
