[ad - gifted product] Rather than doing dry January or veganuary, I’m doing try-anuary (try January!) and only *trying* to be good with less drinking, more vegan dishes and of course trying out new things This isn’t a vegan dish but it is a something new to try - a one pot dish that uses up any leftover cheese from the festive period - with only one pot to wash up what could be better?! To make this one pot cheesy pasta dish I started out making a roux with flour, butter & veggie stock in my @ourplace Perfect Pot When the flour is cooked out I added all the odds and ends of cheese in the fridge that haven’t been eaten yet (cut up small so they melted quickly!) As soon as it was a molten pot of cheesy goodness I added @zenb_uk Pasta Agile (gifted) this pasta is a healthy twist on a regular pasta: 1️⃣ it’s made from yellow peas 2️⃣ it’s gluten free! 3️⃣ it’s high in protein 4️⃣ it’s also high in fibre And the Agile is quick cook pasta shape - so you don’t need a separate pot to boil it in - just mix in and cook in the sauce, covered, for 2 minutes (with a ratio of 2:1 pasta to liquid) I finished the pasta with freshly chopped parsley (that also needed using up) and a sprinkle of truffle pasta (ohlala!) It’s just the comfort food needed for the current gloomy and rainy UK weather! ❓Will you be trying this recipe this January❓ #whatskatiedoingblog #zenb #zenbpasta #pastaagile #onepotcheesepasta #onepotrecipe #onepotrecipes #perfectpot #cheeseplease #trufflemacncheese #tryjanuary #usingupleftovers

[Ad gifted] @kranebet_official botanic juniper liqueur is a little juniper bomb of a liqueur At 40% it still packs a punch, but the sweetness of the liqueur means it’s great for those who prefer a sweeter drink I made 2 negronis to test it out - a light and a dark - perfect for #negroniadaydecember!

Or you can build your own set by buying the tumblers for £13.95 for the pair, and pairing with your choice of pre-mixed cocktail – they have the Pink negroni and a Rhubarb negroni in a 1 litre pack for £44.95, as well as a Fig Martinez for something different. When you’re ready to serve, rinse your martini glasses with a wash of the Sacred English Dry Vermouth and discard the rest, then top up the glass with Sacred Gin straight out of the freezer. Included in the bundle is a bottle of Gibson Edition Copperhead Gin (enhanced and redistilled with pickling spices), savoury semi-dry Gibson Edition Del Professore Vermouth, personalised custom made nickel martini glass, branded side bowl for onions, jar with signature double pickled onions, branded cocktails napkins, porcupine cocktails skewers and step by step recipe of “How to make an Ultimate Gibson Martini”.

How to serve pink gin

Broadly speaking there are some key ways to serve Pink Gins: gin and a mixer (e.g. tonic, lemonade or ginger ale), in sour cocktail with lemon juice and sugar syrup, topped up with Prosecco, as a replacement for ‘regular gin’ in classic gin cocktails and neat! Read on to see more serving suggestions for full strength pink gins: You can serve a Pink gin very simply with a light tonic and a berry garnish. This cocktail results in a pink cocktail though, balancing the fruit flavours with lemon juice and fresh basil for a refreshing serve. Serve Warner’s Pink Berry over ice with a splash of Mediterranean tonic and garnish with raspberries and mint.

Cooking with gin: savoury edition

Place the cooling rack over the rice mixture, lay the fish on top, season with salt and pepper and place the baking dish over low heat. Seal the dish tightly with tinfoil (the tinfoil should not touch the fish if possible), leave over the heat for another 1-2 minutes, then turn off the heat and leave the fish to smoke for 8-10 minutes or until tender. Meanwhile take the pan you were using and add the sliced mushrooms and shallots and saute over a low heat until they soften, c. 3 minutes • Pour the mixture into an 8 x 8 x 2-inch (20.32 x 20.32 x 5.08-centimeter) pan and freeze it for 1 hour.

Cooking with gin: sweet edition

This is the first, adapted from Sainsbury’s magazine, a blood orange drizzle cake with Thunderflower gin in the drizzle, perfect for the season: 225g very soft unsalted butter, plus extra to grease juice of 2 blood oranges (zest these for the cake mix before juicing them!) Add a spoonful of the flour mix to the butter mixture and combine, then add a spoonful of the soaked fruit mixture and combine. Add in the Autumn Edition and stir to combine Pour into a lined loaf tin and bake for 1 hour, until a skewer comes out clean Serve with a garnish of Hayman’s Sloe Gin-sweetened cream, flaked chocolate, and drizzle over the remaining coulis As we are a month away from Lent starting, why not get prepared for Shrove Tuesday with these pancakes, which use both gin and tonic in the pancake mix and syrup to drizzle over:
