Products I Am Loving This Summer

Pirate Bedding

I am loving the Sea Pirate duvet set from Room to Grow. The sets have a single duvet and matching pillowcase. The design features swashbuckling pirates sailing on shark infested seas – a must-have bedding set for any budding adventurer.

SalterCook App, Scales and Thermometer

I have loved using these Salter items in my baking this summer. The scales, thermometer and the app have made things so much easier, especially when I have been searching the internet for recipes to recreate with the boys. I can simply save them to the app for later use.

The Salter Cook App – is free to download from the App Store and Google Play. The app allows users to search through Salter recipes or browse the internet and capture and add their favourite online recipes to their own personal cookbook. Use with the Salter Scales and Probe and you can connect and control them both on one, easy-to-read screen to the app.  Measurements taken are displayed directly on your tablet/smartphone. The app pulls out key information such as ingredients, measurements, units, temperatures and cooking times whilst also helping you adjust portions and add categories to keep track of your favourite recipes.  Use the Salter App, as you cook, for simple step by step guidelines helping you to achieve the best results with minimum fuss.

Heck Sausages and Burgers

Summer is in full swing and I hate to say it but it’s almost over with. The weather has been so miserable here that we’ve not even managed to enjoy one barbecue in the garden and when it has been nice Matthew has always been at work. Which has been a great shame especially when we were sent a lovely hamper of Heck sausages and burgers to enjoy a little while a go. So instead of a barbeque in the garden, we enjoyed the products in a variety of meals instead. My brother in law loved the chicken sausages as an addition to his fry up and we thought that the square sausages, chicken burgers and 97% pork sausages were the best we’ve ever tasted.

*We were sent the above products for the purpose of this post – all thoughts and opinions expressed are my my own*
