Simple Supper: Pimp your Pasta

Today's Simple Supper is really several ways to ramp up the flavour in a bit of a cheat's dinner - shop bought filled pasta. I've got a bit of a weakness for this (it's my go to meal whenever I'm home alone) and love adding a few treat-y extras to make it even more delish. It would be hard for this to be easier so next time you're in need of a no-brain, no-fuss, one pan-er why not give one of these combos a go...

Wedding Wednesday - How Sweet it Is...

Hello lovely readers! My apologies for the radio silence of late - I have had a series of problems with my back which had made sitting at a computer pretty painful. This combined with singing work all over the country has meant I have been a lax homespinner! Very glad to be back today (excuse the unintentional pun) with a Wedding Wednesday for you - a tutorial for the lovey Boho Wedding Blog. This time it's some tips and ideas for creating a Sweets Station for your wedding reception. We had one of these as an alternative to cake and pudding and it went down a treat - I was amazed how many people managed to remember their sweetie bags at the end of the night when shoes, jackets, cameras and handbags got left in abundance! It also meant that we saved money by not having a traditional wedding cake and serving up our centerpiece, the gorgeous croque en bouche, with raspberries and cream for pudding. This was great fun to "cut" (read absolutely terrifying in case the whole thing fell over!) and absolutely delicious.
