The 2 Hour Roast Dinner With OvenPride

December 15, 2015
2 Hour Roast Dinner

What’s the best thing about the winter season? For us a hearty roast dinner comes high on our list: the first one in October is a real event and I try and make it a regular occurrence, once a fortnight or so throughout the winter months. There’s something so hearty and warming about spending the afternoon pottering round a hunk of meat while the kids watch films or craft at the kitchen table. When the weather outside is frightful you’ve…

The Evolution Of A Living Space

July 8, 2015
IMG_4026 copy

One thing I’ve noticed in my rather limited experience of visiting men’s houses, is that they take an overall much more minimal approach to decorating than women do (or at least my friends and I!). Looking around now my home is stuffed full of interiors ‘stuff’: magazines, flowers, lamps, cushions, pictures…. some bloke’s houses look barely moved in to. Some – not all, however. I’ve been in the house of one man that rivalled my own for how clean, tidy and…

Stories of Dishwashing, Garlic and Ginger Chicken and WIN a Whirlpool PowerDry!

December 1, 2014

Before Elfie and Hux came along I didn’t have a dishwasher. In the series of small London flats I lived in there didn’t seem the need – or space – for such a large piece of kitchen equipment. But having moved to the big city from a house up north with plenty of space for the godliest of appliances it was a really big adjustment. Cooking roasts, washing dirty dishes, saucepans and all those plates and bowls becomes that much…

Our New House: The Kitchen

March 12, 2013

So last week, I lied to you. Just a little. I told you that my new lounge was one of my favourite rooms in the house when actually I think the kitchen is. It’s the room that I spend the most time in and is a completely different place compared with the old one. The area to cook in is about a third of the size, but rather than this being at all pokey or annoying it just means that…

Kitchen Cheat Sheet

As someone who is constantly Googling metric/Imperial conversions and cooking times I could not resist this Kitchen Cheat Sheet from Everest. If you go over to their site you can print off handy PDFs to attach to your fridge… though I think they’re lovely enough to frame for a bit of kitchen art. Source  …

A Fairy Light Update In The Kitchen

March 16, 2012

Although I love our kitchen the way it is now, I wanted to cutesy and warm it up a little bit. I’d seen Jen use some lovely fairy lights to decorate her kitchen shelves via her Instagram feed (I think from IKEA also) and thought they looked lovely, so filed the idea away in my mental ‘to do’ file. As soon as the shelves were up I was on the hunt for some fairy lights and found them again in…

Interiors: The Kitchen

We all know that moving house is a pretty soul-destroying experience and as someone who can’t function properly unless her home is clean, clutter free and organized, for me it is a living hell. I hate not having my belongings in their places and boxes… urgh, don’t get me started on how unsightly millions of cardboard boxes are. I truly can’t bear to have them round the house longer than necessary. My name is Alice and I am a massive…

Taxonomy of Rap Names - kitchen

So, we’re at the point where Will has finally succombed to all the nagging about hanging the pictures in our new home and has, you know, started to hang the pictures in our new home. We have one up on the wall so far but I’m not pushing my luck: I’m hoping this one picture will be joined by more this weekend but for now let’s just say it’s a good thing I enjoy the laidback-look of pictures and photos…

Interior: Kitchen

New kitchen

This house is going to be a work in progress, I can tell. The bare bones are there, but we need happy art, wardrobes, a real dining table and chairs… it’s functional as it is and needs to be prettier. 3 weeks in and the basis of my colour schemes are visible; I’ve decided on the style I want in each room and kind of know how I’m going to get there. The main feature of this house will be…
