Happy New Year Everyone!

Hello Lovely's, 

I can't believe the New Year is on it's way and about to make an appearance! This year has flown by and has given me many amazing memory and a lot of firsts as a new Mummy! I am sure a lot of you are getting ready to go out partying and singing the night away with friends and family, those of you that are have a fantastic night. However I am sure I am not the only one staying in with nibbles and a few drinks with friends and family, so raise a glass with me (bubbles or no bubbles!), here is to the year ahead!

Happy New Year!

Lots of Love

Merry Christmas Everyone!

It is the day we have all been waiting for! Father Christmas has (if your are here in the UK) been and gone, well at least for all of the good children. Enjoy the rest of your Christmas Day, and make sure you all eat until you can't eat anymore.
Remember Eat, Drink (sensibly), & Be Merry! :) 

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

Lots of Love

Santa Cookies!

Hello Lovelys,

I haven't done a really yummy, naughty, recipe for a while so I thought this would be the perfect time as everyone need some freshly cooked cookies for Santa!!
I found this recipe on  the BBC Good Food website, but I have decided on a couple of changes as well.
You will need:
125g Softened Butter
100g Light brown, Soft Sugar
125g Caster Sugar
1 Egg, lightly Beaten,
1 tsp of Vanilla Extract,
225g Self-Raising Flour,
1/2 tsp Salt,
80g Chocolate Chips,
80g Honeycomb Pieces
80g Fudge Pieces.
Preheat your oven to 180℃ (Gas Mark 4).

1. Cream together the butter, the light brown sugar and the caster sugar in a bowl, until it is light a creamy. 
2. Mix the egg and the vanilla extract in to the creamy mixture.
3. Sift in the flour and salt and mix it all together. 
4. Add in the chocolate chips, honeycomb and fudge pieces.
5. Roll the mixture into small balls and slightly flatten them on to a covered baking tray. I found my cookies were really sticky and like a very thick cake mix but it worked perfectly still.
6. Cook of around 15 minutes until golden brown. :)
7. Allow the cookies to harden slightly before transferring them to a wire calling rack.

8. Now, enjoy! Oh sorry no I mean place on a small plate ready to leave at a yummy snack for Santa! ;) He will only need the one though! Lol

Do you leave Santa something different, I'd love to know what? Mia and I are new to this! :)

Cinnamon Crisps
Serves 2
Prep and Cooking time: 10 minutes
You will need: 
1 Thin Wholemeal Wrap
Cooking Oil Spray (or butter)
2 Teaspoons Icing Sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground Cinnamon

1. Pre heat the oven to 180℃ and cover a tray in baking paper.

2. Take the wholemeal wrap and spray with cooking oil both sides.

3. Cover the sprayed wrap in icing sugar and cinnamon on both sides.

4. Slice the wrap in half and then slice each half into wide strips. 

5. Place on the baking tray and bake in the oven for around 4 minutes or until crispy.  Allow them to cool on the tray. 

Then Enjoy! Even Mia really likes to snack on these. I don't usually stick to the amounts for the ingredients just make it up as I go along! Try them out and let me know what you think in the comments!

Elfie's Antics #1

Good Evening Lovely's,

As I promised I am giving you an update on the Elfie Antics that have been going on around our house since Elfie's arrival on the 1st December. I think he has kept things fairly well behaved so far (but maybe I shouldn't speak too soon)! :) I am hoping that my car breaking down at home has nothing to do with his arrival! Lol. 

Monday -This was Elfie's first meeting with Mia, I think she was pretty taken with him! There was a lot of cuddling and kissing involved! :)
Tuesday - From day one there was defiantly a love interest going on in our house, and not just with Mia! Elfie loves Tinkerbell!

Wednesday - Our christmas tree was up but Elfie decided that Mia's playhouse wasn't festive enough, so he put up some fairy lights!

Thursday - Caught Elfie enjoying a high speed saucepan ride.
Friday - I have discovered that Elfie enjoys a ice cold bottle of milk while relaxing.

Saturday - Elfie is a wiz at most of the Xbox games we own!

Sunday - Everyone in our house enjoys a good story book, Elfie is making a lot of friends!

Mia is really enjoying having a cheeky friend around! Are you doing an Elf on the Shelf in your house? 

Thank you for reading!

Lots of Love
