Sainsbury’s Hidden Centre Cupcakes

Hidden centre cupcakes

I do love a good cupcake, or in the case of when I make them at home tiny fairycake, and am always envious about ones that come nicely iced because icing with a piping bag is probably my worst skill in the kitchen. The soft swishy cake against the sweet and well-formed icing makes for […]

Cheap Chocolate And Branded Bites

We used to get Sainsburys Basic milk and dark chocolate but they recently increased the price from 30p for a 100g bar to 35p for a bar and whilst 5p does not make a big difference to the majority of people it is the sort of thing that makes a huge difference from us and […]

Simple stir fry for a not so simple life
