Starlings Biscotti Review & Recipes

Starlings Biscotti Review & Recipes

Hi guys, and welcome back! Today is another foodie blog – one of my favourite kinds to write about. The lovely people over at Starlings Artisan Foods sent me some of their biscotti to try out, and they’re all amazing flavours and so unique. I’m going to talk you through the 4 different flavours of Starlings Biscotti I received, and some recipes that they would be perfect for! If you’d like to browse through Starlings’ Biscotti and see what other flavours they have, you can find them all at starlingsartisanfood.co.uk.

Biscotti is a great snack – you can nibble on them plain if you like dry, crunchy foods, or lump a load of pate or cured meats on top. My mum makes me this amazing snack when I’m studying, where she rubs a garlic clove on the biscotti and tops it with cured meat, sundried tomatoes and mozzarella. It’s so simple yet so delicious! I could really go for it right now – thankfully she’ll be coming back soon to look after me for the next few months!

The four I was sent are a step better than your basic biscotti. They had some unique flavours; three of them being savoury, and one sweet. I’ve never tried sweet (or even flavoured) biscotti before, so I was really intrigued by them! The amazing people at Starlings also sent me over some recommended recipes for each biscuit (thank you). I’ve tried most of them and I’m so excited to share these with you!

Matcha NOW Green Tea Review

Matcha NOW Green Tea Review

Hi guys, today I’m back with a review of Matcha NOW green tea and their new flavours! I was fortunate enough that the people at Matcha NOW sent me over some bottles so I could try them out – thank you so much!

The company only started selling in the UK last year, coming over from the US, and started off with their classic matcha green tea flavour. Now they have released two new flavours – Peppermint, and Ginger & Turmeric.

The drink comes in a regular sized bottle, but has a very lovely mechanism to keep the matcha fresh. Instead of pre-mixing the matcha, there is a twist cap where the spout of the bottle would usually be. The matcha is stored in here, and you would twist it to release the powder as and when you decide to drink it! All you have to do is give it a little shake, and your fresh Matcha NOW green tea is ready to go.

Thyme-Scented Blueberry Tart Recipe | M&S

Thyme-Scented Blueberry Tart Recipe | M&S

Hi lovelies, and welcome back! I’ll be showing you a lovely thyme-scented blueberry tart recipe, today. This post is in collaboration with Marks & Spencer’s, and I just want to say a big thanks to them for working with me! I’m very excited to bring you this blog post. M&S have challenged me to recreate some of their recipes involving fresh berries, and today I’ll be bringing you this lovely tart!

This is the most popular pudding I’ve ever made for my family. My dad in particular loves this blueberry tart recipe, and says it’s the best tart he’s ever had. (He’s in his 50s, so hopefully this speaks volumes to the quality of the dessert.) Usually tarts, especially store bought, can be very sickly sweet or too sour. This tart, however, isn’t either of those – there’s such a great balance between the ingredients, and it’s so fresh and delicious!

Chunky Potato Salad | Recipes

Chunky Potato Salad | Recipes

Hi lovelies, I’m back with another recipe! I love a chunky potato salad, and I had a great one at work the other week, so I thought I’d try and create a lovely, creamy curried potato salad at home!

It’s only slightly curried (with one teaspoon of curry powder) so it’s not something that is overwhelming, but if it isn’t for you then you can remove this ingredient, and still make an amazing sauce! If you’re vegan, you could also replace the salad cream and mayo with a plant-based mayo as well.

Let’s kick this recipe off with the ingredients you will need!

Rick and Morty Cocktail Bar | Pop-Up Geeks

Rick and Morty Cocktail Bar | Pop-Up Geeks

I visited the Pop Up Geeks again, and this time round they had a Rick and Morty themed cocktail bar! I love Rick and Morty, and when I first met my boyfriend that was one of the first things we talked about – so it was a definite that I was dragging him with me to check it out!

If you haven’t read about my last visit with the Pop Up Geeks, you can┬áread about it here. They were doing a Harry Potter theme called Perilous Potions, and it was amazing! Now, onto Rick and Morty…
