Barbeque Season is Coming

With temperatures on the rise, day’s getting longer and garden’s being tidied, it is only a matter of time before the BBQ’s come out and the men stand around drinking beer and admiring each other’s cooking skills. So dust off your Garden Furniture Cleaning Brush and get your garden furniture looking perfect so you can serve these 5 summer dishes to wow your friends.

  1. The Hairy Bikers’ lamb kebabs with plum sauce and sour cream

This easy to prepare dish will taste fantastic and look great on the table to get your BBQ rolling. Easy to pick up and served with dips this is an ideal finger food while your guests are still arriving.

  1. Barbecue chicken skewers 

Needing a little more preparation but still nice and easy to make these skewers can go along side the lamb kebabs or be served as a dish of their own. With extra hot sauce for me, these spiced skewers will add some real flavour to a BBQ spread.

  1. Barbecued Glazed Spare Ribs 

A staple dish for any BBQ, Ribs…. Marinated for an hour and cooked to perfection for just 10-12 minutes you won’t believe how hard it is to share these with anyone.

  1. Best Grilled Burgers 

I think the title says it all? Nice moist grilled burgers with just the right amount of seasonings. No more boring burgers! Adjust the seasonings as desired; add spice for a Tex-Mex burger, oregano for Italian or anything else you want.

  1. BBQ halloumi, new potato and sage kebabs 

These potato and halloumi kebabs are perfect for vegetarians at a BBQ. They are easy to make and tasty to eat (even if you’re not a vegetarian)

So get your garden tidied, your BBQ out and your garden furniture cleaned ready to start your BBQ.

Don’t forget to get your own Garden Furniture Cleaning Brush to make your garden furniture look brand new year after year.

Summer Holiday Expenses You Don’t Need

This year will be the first time in a number of years I have actually gone away for a Holiday. With the birth of my son last year and needing a new car the year before I just simply haven’t had the money for flights anywhere but not this year. This year me, my partner, our son (he’ll have just turned 1 when we go away) and my mum will be setting off on a flight to Ireland…

We are going to visit family and just simply to get away from home for a week. After the expense of getting passports sorted, finding an apartment to stay in, flights, transfers and everything else, we don’t want to be hit with any unexpected charges for “overweight” luggage. So we will be using the Case Weighing Luggage Strap with Combination Lock not only to check our luggage is not overweight, but to keep it locked securely too. Unfortunately I already know that we will have too much on the return trip, as it is impossible to not come home with more stuff than when you left, so I have already budgeted for that in the cost of our holiday.

If you don’t want to be caught out either be sure to get your own Case Weighing Luggage Strap.

Let’s hear about everyone’s summer holiday plans in the comments below.

Our Favourite Cupcake Recipes

Following the current news of this year’s Great British Bake Off, we have decided to compile a list our favourite cupcake recipes to use with our silicone cupcake moulds.

1. Vanilla Cupcakes

These easy vanilla cupcakes are so simple to make but taste amazing. Decorate with a swirl of delicious butter cream frosting for the final touch.

2.Red Velvet Cupcakes

This mini version of the classic Red Velvet Cake is one of the more popular offerings in bakeries all across the country. Whip up a batch yourself at home and enjoy.

3.Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting 

This is a wonderful recipe. We love the flavour of pumpkin and the cinnamon makes ordinary cream cheese frosting extra special.

4.Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cupcakes 

Satisfy your chocolate craving with these cupcakes. The creamy frosting topped with chopped peanut butter cups is the best part.

Horseshoe Hot Water Bottle

Hot water bottles are a great way to target and relieve pain as well as a great way to keep warm in the winter months (Even if they have been fairly mild for most). This hot water bottle is perfect for both of these jobs, shaped like a horseshoe it fits neatly around your neck and soothes the areas that I find are affected most by shoulder and neck ache. Once around your neck there is no need to hold it in place keeping your hands free to read or do your crosswords. While I always use mine after training or a game with my sports team my partner found the perfect way to keep warm. She places the hot water bottle around her neck then puts her dressing gown on over the top so the heat circulates around her whole body keeping her nice and toasty even on the coldest night (A great way to save on the heating bills).

This is a perfect way to relieve aches and keep warm – A must have for just £10.99!

“Tis The Season To Be Jolly” Free Standing Christmas Decoration

This is a fabulous looking Christmas decoration that will look great in your window or on the mantelpiece. Laser cut for that precise smooth look this wooden tree, exclusive to itsawot.com, is well worth the £9.99. Folding flat for storage this tree can be used year after year. The only complaint was one incident of damage upon delivery but I have spoken with the transport department and we have agreed that an extra piece of rigid board would be inserted in the package to help keep the tree from being bent and breaking in the post.

All-in-all this is a great value for money decoration that would look good in any home and will fit in with any decor, modern or traditional.

Dad’s Engraved Carabiner Multi-Tool

This is a great gift for dad; it makes an ideal stocking filler for Christmas or a little something for Father’s Day. The engraving is of an incredible quality, it just looks simply amazing. As for the tool itself it’s a compact item that although lacking in the number of function does what it is supposed to do and it does it well. With a small blade (Less than 3” and therefore legal to have – I still wouldn’t try taking it through an airport though.) that can be used to open boxes, letter or packets and a torch which is deceivingly bright. The final feature included is the carabiner which is great for attaching to your belt loop so you have this tool to hand at all times.

Overall this product is a worthwhile buy for the money you’re paying; an engraved gift is always well received.
