How to reduce gluten in your diet, without even noticing.

How to reduce gluten in your diet, without even noticing.

Pasta lovers: How to reduce gluten in your diet, without even noticing. Review of Barilla gluten free pasta range If you’re wondering whether to cut down on gluten in your diet, then gluten free pasta is a useful addition to your kitchen cupboard.    If you’re cooking for kids, then you’ll know that pasta is a reliable crowd pleaser, so I was keen to try out Barilla’s gluten free pasta range which is made from corn and rice rather than wheat. It’s estimated that 6% of the population suffer from some sort of gluten sensitivity (1) which...

Hot Air Fryer Review

Hot Air Fryer Review I don’t know about you but every New Year I’m full of good intentions for a healthy lifestyle so, as a working mum I do like it when a time and labour saving device presents itself and this totally caught my attention straight away. Kids love chips, but for me they’re a pain. I don’t use the oven much, the slow cooker is on almost daily along with the veg steamer so to put the oven on just for chips isn’t going to happen so steamed potatoes, mostly mashed is our way forward to get those carbs that kids, annoyingly, like...

Waffle Maker Review

Waffle Maker Review

Flip Over Waffle Maker Review The second kitchen gadget we’ve been testing from the American Originals range at Argos is the Waffle Maker. Similarly to the Ice Cream Maker, it’s another way to get the kids in the kitchen. The first thing to note is that it’s a slimline piece of kit, as a result it’s found itself in a permanent on top of the counter position. Normally we’d store such items in the cupboard until we need them but this little thing, (due to its daily use!) has a permanent home. I don’t normally...

Ice Cream Maker review

Ice Cream Maker review Getting kids into baking can, for some parents be a challenge. Some take to it straight away and enjoy it, others may need some coercion to get started. In any event I believe baking knowledge is important for all kids to grow up with, it doesn’t have to be Michelin star level but knowing how to throw a Victoria sponge together and understanding the elements of timing when putting a meal together is important. Call me sexist here but I actually feel it’s more important for boys to grow up not believing in...

November Rain Poncho review

November Rain Poncho review Rainy season is upon us Brits pretty much throughout the year so we were delighted to be able to give two of our reviewers the chance to try out the stylish Ponchos from November Rain. Designs straight out of super cool Australia, they say the range is all about combining lifestyle, design and functionality and when mum’s have bags to carry, kids to carry, as well as an ever expanding handbag, school runs and kids outdoor activities, who better to put them through their paces?   Lisa’s verdict: The...

Blink Security system review

Blink Security review The biggest difficulty of the Blink Home Security system was getting the camera and sync module boxes out of the packaging! Pesky vacuum created by the tightly packed boxes… after that it’s downhill sailing. Each box has instructions, very simply your first step is to download the free Blink Home Monitor App and create an account, then plug the sync module to the power supply and follow the on screen instructions which is made clear by handy flashing arrows telling you where to tap and what to scan from your phone,...

Name tags review

Well there’s nothing like being prepared and with the summer holidays fast approaching, it’ll be back to school and its associated panic of uniform buying and shoe-gate, trainer-gate and got to have the right school bag-gate. Even though everything may well be named, the chances are you still won’t get your lost items back in a hurry – half way through his first year in secondary school my son lost his whole PE kit, yes the whole kit which was even, at the request of school, embroidered with his inititals in gold...
