The Make Today Special handmade lip balm giveaway I ran a couple of weeks ago has now come to a close and the winners have been notified via email. Thanks so much to each and every one of you who took the time to enter – by the end of the giveaway there were 125 entries in total – that was way more than I was expecting!
Ice cream first thing on a Monday morning? Surely I should be posting a recipe for a dinner salad or a fast and healthy breakfast recipe, right? Yet instead, I’m sharing ice cream. But not any ice cream – a smooth and creamy vanilla custard ice cream overflowing with sweetened rhubarb chunks and deliciously buttery crumble topping. Oh yeah.
Two frozen dessert recipes in three days – can you tell I’m loving summer? On Wednesday I shared a recipe for Instant Strawberry Vodka Sorbet and today I’m sharing this amazing recipe for Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches. Two soft and chewy cookies sandwiched together with simple vanilla bean ice cream and melted milk chocolate. Best. Dessert. EVAH!
Yes, you read that correctly - instantly. This fast and simple dessert recipe for Strawberry and Vodka Sorbet comes together in less than five minutes and only requires four ingredients. And what’s better than a fast dessert recipe that only uses a small number of basic ingredients? One which combines the heat of pure vodka, sweetness of strawberries and refreshing quality of sorbet to create the perfect summer dessert, that’s what!
This week has just been one of those weeks, you know? The weeks where no matter how much time you spend working or how many hours you dedicate to doing chores, the to-do list never gets shorter and instead seems to increase every time you look at it. Those weeks call for dessert. Not just any kind of dessert but a sweet, velvety moreish dessert.
I’m taking a break from the usual simple recipes and useful cooking tips this Wednesday to bring you my first ever Pink Recipe Box giveaway! Today I’m going to be telling you all about my new handmade lip balm business as well as giving you the chance to win one of ten lip balms of your choice! (more…)
Sometimes I feel like the recipes I share with you guys are too simple and too fast to call them recipes. Today is one of those days. Come to think of it, last Monday when I shared a recipe for The S’mOreo was also one of those days. Maybe Monday should be fast and simple recipe day from now on at Pink Recipe Box.
So I appear to be on some sort of healthy eating kick at the minute. Usually, I eat quite healthy anyway, but recently I seem to be kicking it up a notch – overnight oats with fruit for breakfast, some sort of healthy tapas-style mini platter for lunch and then something small and light for dinner. Instead of a proper dessert, I’ve even been choosing my go-to 100-calorie microwave brownie recipe.
Whether you’re making homemade ice cream, Hollandaise sauce or choux pastry, there are loads of different ways you could end up with leftover egg whites. There are plenty of recipes in addition to the ones above that leave you with extra whites that will just end up in the bin if you don’t find a use for them. If you’re looking for ways to cut down on waste and use those leftover egg whites, you’ve come to the right place!
