Piña Colada Ice Cream

Piña Colada Ice Cream

I am not exactly sure how I came about attempting to make Piña Colada Ice Cream but I do know it first started when I received an ice cream maker from my Dad. I had been tempted to buy one sooner but I thought either one of two things would happen: 1. I wouldn’t use it and it would end up collecting dust in the kitchen or 2. I would enjoy making ice cream so much and then start eating it too often. Judging from how successful this recipe was it might be the latter. I made Ginger Ice Cream quite a while back without an ice cream maker and I can tell you that in this case machines do make it so much easier, even though they are not essential. I knew I wanted to make a tropical flavoured ice cream to take me back to the shores of Jamaica but I wasn’t sure if I should go rum and raisin or piña colada.

Mimosa | The Yummy Truth

I love brunch! It is probably my favourite meal because it allows you to eat everything and anything regardless of whether it is morning or afternoon. I love eggs, whether they’re scrambled, fried, boiled or my favourite, which is poached, and by the time I have finished brunch I no longer need to eat for the rest of the day since I have had eggs at an otherwise inappropriate time of day, I have enjoyed something heavier like a steak then ended with a dessert, while drinking continuously for 4 hours but not been accused of being an alcoholic and still look like a classy lady. There is no successful brunch, in my opinion, unless there is alcohol (unless you are pregnant or on medication and are enjoying virgin cocktails) and this Mimosa recipe is really good because of the addition of a third ingredient.

Crayfish Salad | The Yummy Truth

I feel like I keep going on about the Summer but everything just seems to be better when the sun is shining – people are more friendly, more sociable; the days are longer and I find it much easier to dress for the heat. Salads are great for these high temperatures that bring with them new levels of humidity and absolutely no sea breeze; this crayfish salad is light and also has the added benefit of allowing you to attain or maintain that summer body.

Wimbledon Afternoon Tea with Ladbrokes

June 30, 2015

That time of year when the sun has decided to bless us, in London, with its presence has finally arrived! We all sit wondering, or rather lay in the park half naked or lean back in a seat catching rays at the perfect angle, still wondering or instead hoping, yearning and even begging the sun not to leave us again as the memories of waking up for work in the dark and then walking from the train station home in the dark with our shoulders hunched up towards our ear lobes with almost magnetic strength forces of attraction to protect ourselves from blistering winds of winter are still too traumatising to forget. If you are trying to figure out what I am on about don’t hate on me because you live in a hot country and if you managed to follow that never-ending sentence lacking punctuation it is because you clearly feel my pain and I am grateful for your empathy. Whilst I have clearly adopted the British ability to talk about the weather all day, with different people as though it is the juiciest piece of gossip yet to be shared, this blog post is actually got nothing to do with the weather (after all it is a food blog not BBC Weather), but it has everything to do with London’s (and one of the world’s) largest tennis event, which somehow creates an energy throughout the city for tennis fans and even non tennis fans. What are the odds? I am sure Ladbrokes has an answer and if your luck is anything like mine yesterday the dealer will not get one over you since yesterday I had the pleasure of attending Afternoon Tea at the iconic Landmark Hotel courtesy of Ladbrokes Bingo who put extra icing on the cake (or perhaps I should say clotted cream on the scone) by having their Buff Ball Boys join us bloggers at the table.
