A way with eggs – the best ways to eat eggs!

The little white and yellow liquid ball of protein is one of the oldest foods chosen by humans to nourish and satisfy us. I’m talking about the egg of course. We don’t really know whether it came before the chicken or not, but what we do know is it has become a valuable part of our breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner. It’s safe to say that the egg is a cornerstone of the British culinary catalogue.

Summer Break Essentials

As the sun slowly starts to creep its way back into our lives (however briefly), it’s time to start thinking about picking up some great summer gifts for yourself, your family and your friends. Make sure you have a summer to remember by preparing for those BBQs and parties early, getting festival gear well in advance, and preparing yourself for the impending joy (and probably heartache) of the World Cup.

Valentine’s Day Gifts | A Brief History

Originally an annual Roman festival for lovers, Valentine’s day became a Christian holiday to celebrate the legend of St. Valentine, who was thought to have been executed for performing marriage ceremonies in secret during a ban under the rule of Roman Emperor Claudius II in the third century AD. St. Valentine is thought to have died on 14th February. Whilst imprisoned awaiting his fate, it is also thought that the priest fell in love with the jailer’s daughter and signed off his final correspondence to her, “From your Valentine”. A legend was born.

Winter Warmers

‘Frosty’, ‘damp’, ‘grey’ – ‘damn cold’. These are all words that could be used to describe the horrendous weather we all (in the northern hemisphere, at least) must endure at this time of the year. As we slowly approach February like a septuagenarian attempting to cross an icy intersection, we’re all still stuck in the depths of winter. What better time, then, to indulge in a plethora of great gift ideas to make those two ultimate winter warmers: Tea and Coffee?
