Travel Advice - Money: Cash or Card?

Money: Cash or Card? 

If you’re preparing for your soon-to-be jet-setting adventure, you may be considering how to manage your finances whilst you’re away. Too many of us often leave sorting our travel money out until the very last minute, so are you missing out on making the most of your spends?

In a recent survey of 500 people by Book Mallorca, when asked if they preferred to take cash or a travel card on holiday, almost two-thirds (63.5%) chose cash over card. Both have their advantages, so how can you decide which option is actually best for you?

John Whaite's Perfect Plates in 5 ingredients: Book Review

When fresh face John Whaite won the #GGBO in 2012, he was seating for a law degree, a lot has happened since then. He is now running his own cookery school and he makes regular appearances on TV as a presenter. Perfect Plates in 5 Ingredients, released in April 16, is his third book.

Limoncello Plum Tarte

tarte, frangipane, plum, limoncello

It's Glut time. This season, plums are plentiful. Once you have jammed, made cobblers, given kilos of plums to the people you like and shoved even more through the letterboxes of these you don't. What do you do?

Turn to the drink. Plum and limoncello complete each other nicely. Just in case, here is a quick reminder: Limoncello is a cocktail of vodka and lemon. Here it gives a little kick to the smooth texture of the frangipane.

Earlier in the summer, I attended "Xmas in July" the presentation of all things Xmassy by several brands. As usual, my preferred show was that of Lakeland. Always full of useful kitchen gadget, though I can't say that the plastic shot-pipettes stroke me as useful at first. But, always curious to try, I thought that this limoncello tart would be the perfect experimentation ground. After sucking the liqueur in the pipette, it's released by pressure to the top. It works. I would definitely recommend these Shot-Tops.

Lobster Pasta aka Pasta All'Aragosta

 When a recipe is supposed to look like so

                                                      But ends up looking like above

I used to get very upset when my dishes didn't turn up like the original pictures, then I started blogging, rubbed shoulder with some of the best food photographers and quickly understood that a picture gallery is very much like a wardrobe. 

What's New in the Kitchen #14 : Tried-and-True

I am Tilda's biggest fan. But without a microwave, their pouches were, so far, out of my reach. Not anymore, the new Tilda Pulses 'n Rice can be eaten quickly stir-fried or straight from the pouch, if you are in a real hurry . The new range is international (Mexican, Moroccan, Japanese and Caribbean style).

It should be heaven, right?

Wrong, I love the packaging and the range has proven to be very handy when in a hurry for lunch. 140g is small but the content is satisfying though a little seems to get lost in the creases at the bottom of the pouch, annoying.
Tilda can be trusted to offer organic products, all of which are gluten free. Sadly the taste was disappointing, the new range of 5 has been crafted by Bruno Loubet. Its's cheap and satisfying but nothing really stands out. RRP £1.35

Heinz summer range
Heinz sauces

This summer, the 140 years old brand is "adding a little Magic" to our dishes. As usual promotional material can be a little over the top. Used on a side of a plate or squirted over a dish these sauces are handy but often taken for granted, it's good old Heinz, afterall.

Mix them within a dish and yes, it's almost Magic. I added the BBQ sauce to a burger mix, using the sauce as an ingredient in its own right and the burgers were brilliant. Same with the piri-piri used as a pork chops marinade. RRP £1.25- £3.65
My heart goes to gluten intolerant sufferers as I always find the products, dry and slightly rough to my palate. Same here, though Nairn's is usually a tasty brand. One nice thing about these crackers is the ingredients, full of nutritious seeds and omega3 rich RRP £1.75

Lemon Curd

Lately, I have been obsessed with  fresh fruits as if my body was telling me to quick, quick do something to store a little of summer so that it could face the months to come, happily.

curd, lemon,

With the abundance of summer fruits and the in-season citrus,  I have been jamming, canning as much as the pantry space will allow me. I found a quick recipe for a deliciously tangy lemon curd. Curds seem to be coming back in fashion. Probably because the orange and lemon curds are making way for new flavours. Take blackcurrants, Lucie at Baking Queen 74 adapted a BBC blackcurrants curd recipe with very effective results.
