Lakeland to the rescue again

Those who know me, know I am definitely not a shopaholic and I hate kitchen clutter (I only buy what I need) – but there’s one shop that always hits the spot!
Lakeland to the rescue again!

I’m not keen on weighing out ingredients – hence I don’t really do it and tend to go with the flow when just baking for myself.  Now I am blogging (and have the responsibility that comes with it), I need to be precise as I do not want to waste my dear readers time with recipes that don’t quite turn out right…

So a quick peek at Lakeland and weyhey! American measuring cups! How excited am I? I will be dreaming about them!

They will take pride of place next to my two other highly successful purchases –

my potato ricer

and my ‘no need to peel’ garlic press

I receive no incentive or compensation for this post (Lakeland won’t have a clue they are being mentioned) – one of my aims with this blog  is to share with you guys my top tips so if you want perfect mash or hate peeling garlic cloves then check out Lakelands products. 

www.lakeland.co.uk

I’ll let you know how the measuring goes – as I said VERY EXCITED!

ps – will still be weighing out for those who prefer scales or using grams as the unit of measurement xx

    Good knives are my favourite cooking aid. We were gifted with some excellent ones as wedding presents. That said, I really need to get them sharpened.
    I like the sound of that no peel garlic press. Enjoy using fresh garlic but hate the smell of it on my hands for days afterwards.

      Sharp knives – very important! Apparently one of the ways to reduce eye sting when chopping onion is to use a very sharp knife as it cuts through cleanly reducing the gases released – blunt knives make more of a mess of the onion core! (fountain of knowledge eh? haha! :-))
      The press is fab – a bit pricey but very worth it, minimal kitchens and simple cooking mean nutritious meals but less time spent cooking and cleaning up – and this press speeds things up very nicely… I don’t mind paying for quality products I use everyday (and this gets a lot of use) but wouldn’t buy fad products that are a waste of money and clutter
      Have fun cooking Jo – ps if you have any minimal cooking tips/recipes I’d love to try them out
