We know, we know – we haven’t done one of our own recipes in a while. Truth be told, we have been filming and making things behind the scenes – it’s just been a case of life getting away from us. R has been working on several projects, including heading up London Runway as Chief Editor, while J recently changed jobs after coming back from a trip to Australia. Then this was all followed up by lots of events and some sponsored/gifted posts, which you’ve been seeing lately.
It’s a double whammy – we’ve got not one, but TWO reviews from the Gosh range for you today. We’ve already tried some of their products in the past, but this is our first time trying something actually burger-shaped.
Two things, actually: first up, the Moroccan Spiced Bakes with Red Pepper and Apricot. While these technically make no claim towards being burgers, just look at them: they’re burgers.
This week I’m sharing something I eat far too often. That’s right, my life is now so ridiculous that either my dinner or my lunch often consists of “whatever Caffe Nero have on the shelves at Waterloo Station”.
Thankfully, what they have on the shelves includes this relatively new option: a sweet potato falafel and beetroot houmous wrap, which comes with harissa slaw and spinach.
This one is a bit of a mouthful, but we’ll give it a go: we’ve tried the Cauldron Aduki Bean Melts, Made with Aduki Beans, Spinach, Mushroom and Aromatic Spices, Filled With Mango Chutney. I’d like to point out that I added my own punctuation there. Some brands just aren’t mindful of their grammar.
Where do we start with this little gem? The Violife Mediterranean Style Block is our new go-to ‘cheese’ when we want something, well, a little bit like halloumi.
Except this isn’t like halloumi at all – it might just be better. At least, it’s not very easy to compare the two, because they do have different properties. This is likely why they don’t use the word halloumi on the packaging. I’ll explain.
We’ve got another exciting video for you today, as we tried out the Gluten Freegan coffee cake mix! We received this packet free of charge to provide you with an honest and unbiased review. It was perfect timing as I am still struggling to cut out lactose from my diet, and being both gluten-free and vegan, the range has a lot of options for me.
I have already sung the praises of the magnificent shroomdog before, but – gasp – there’s another flavour out! The Sainsburys Cumberland shroomdogs are in the style of the infamous Cumberland sausage, although with significantly less dead animal carcass and considerably more mushroom.
We received this massive parcel from Bounce in the post, and we have to say we are SO looking forward to working our way through it! We did an unboxing video so you can see what we got, with all of the details. Watch it below:
When we first heard about these new products coming into Sainsburys, we definitely had a raised eyebrow or two. Shroomdogs? What kind of a name is that? It sounds ridiculous, and that caused a few worries that the product itself was going to be a laughing stock.
We hadn’t seen these before until we popped into Asda, so we definitely had to give them a try. These Quorn aromatic Thai bites looked pretty appealing from the outside, and we definitely liked the sound of them.
They are actually pre-cooked, so you can eat them right out of the packet. Not that you usually can’t with Quorn, since it’s not like meat where you need to kill off all the germs first, but still – these are actually designed this way. We decided to pop them in the oven to warm up as we were cooking some croquettes at the same time anyway.
