Home Made Guacamole

4 Jul

I can’t rave aboutĀ  Rosa Mexicano‘s guacamole nearly enough. Made fresh in front of you this is unlike any you’ll have eaten before.

They have kindly put their recipe online and I make use of it a lot- it’s so quick to make and tastes amazing- try it and see.

Marshmallow Making

21 Apr

Mr Bitter is a very patient and understanding and seeing as last year for his birthday we took him cupcake decorating this year he knew he was in for just as exciting a treat.

So off we headed to a surprise marshmallow making course held by The Robin Collective at Drink, Shop & Do where we had a partially succesful but very sticky afternoon.

The sugar overdose and gooeyness of the day was a bit much to handle by the end but we had fun and I’m not put of marshmallow making- if anything I’m just spurred on to root out my book on the subject and try making someĀ  more…
