Degustabox ReviewThis last month seems to have flown by, Christmas is approaching super fast and it’s time for another Degustabox review! Honestly the day I get the text from DPD telling me what time my Degustabox will be being delivered is my favourite day of the month, and I hate it if I am out and have to hope my neighbours are in to take the box or I have to wait an extra day or 2 to have it redelivered! This month its the Christmas box so I had all my fingers crossed for some tasty treats as last years Christmas box was awesome.

Healthy Sweet and Sour Chicken Meatball Recipe

by

Healthy Sweet and Sour Chicken Meatball Recipe Last week I received a Musclefoods 100 Piece Ultimate Slimming Lean Meat Hamper and it has literally filed up 2 drawers of my freezer! There is so much meat it will keep me an Jon going for quite a while. I shan’t name everything that came in the box as there was lots (if you’d like to see what the 100 piece bit contains you can check out the link above) but it did contain a ridiculous amount of huge chicken breast portions, 2 packs of chicken meatballs, chicken and sweet chilli burgers (which Jon has already cooked and really enjoyed!), 1 massive packs of mince, a number of steaks and lots more.

Once I saw the chicken meatballs I knew they were one of the first things I wanted to test out as we love meatballs, but have never had lean chicken ones before, and I knew I wanted to do something different with them instead of the usual tomato sauce. So I thought we would try a healthy sweet and sour sauce for them. This recipe is based on a Slimming World Sweet and Sour Sauce Recipe with a few tweaks.  Continue reading

July Degustabox Review and Unboxing

by

So our July Degustabox arrived a few days ago and I thought I would do something a little different and film an unboxing video instead of my usual post. I swear half the fun in getting a subscription box is opening it and finding the surprises instead, of course the other half of the fun with a Degustabox is eating everything in it! hehe! So check out the video to see what we received this month and see below for our review of the items we have now tested out! Continue reading

by

Degustabox February - carrot juice bread recipe

Yay it’s that time of the month again, Degustabox delivery! Yum!! It’s probably my favourite bit of mail to receive (sorry penpals!) so I always get excited when I get the text telling me my box will be delivered the next morning. There is nothing more fun than opening a box of random edibles, you just never know what you are going to get, but I can always guarantee that there will be a few things me and Jon will both love and a few we won’t be so keen on, but thats the fun bit!

If the whole Degustabox concept is new to you check out one of my other reviews or take a peek at their website – plus if you fancy testing it out yourself then my reader discount code can get you an awesome £6 off!! Use code ‘BLDEG15′.

So here is what was in the February Degustabox and what we thought of it, plus at the end you’ll find a my carrot juice bread recipe (for the bread maker!) using the James White British Carrot Juice I received in the box. It’s something a little different and inventive, but it turned out yummy! Continue reading

The Jam Jar Review – Bridge of Allan

by

The Jam Jar RreviewIf you’ve been following our twitter or Instagram feed you will know we have been on a little break to Scotland over the past week, and you will have seen some of the places we have visited and more importantly what we have been eating! Hehe! Me and Jon try to visit at least once a year as my aunt lives there in a little place called Auchterarder, which is right next to Gleneagles. This time we visited with my sister and her boyfriend and stayed in The Eagles Rest, which is a lodge park just on the outskirts of the village – I’ll review that at a later date, but today I wanted to do a quick review and sing the praises of one of our favourite places to eat when we visit the area which is The Jar Jar!
