An Afternoon Tea Affair

The Betty Stamp Lifestyle Blog Afternoon Tea

What springs to mind when mentioning a typically tempting, indulgent British afternoon? For me it's spending quality time down in Somerset with my family, treating ourselves to a long overdue catch up whilst stuffing our chops full of clotted cream scones and mini cakelets! (Yes I have just made up the word cakelets…I'm going to roll with that one, I rather enjoy it)

So that is exactly what we did!

And we all know how much I love a girly afternoon tea!

But not just the one afternoon tea this time, no siree! We only went and had two! Not on the same day though - that would have just been plain greedy (!)

The Betty Stamp Lifestyle Blog Pea Kale Gruyere Dip Recipe

Long gone are the days of cosy winter warming soups, belly busting lasagnes and sizzling stews. Summer is fast approaching and my tummy is preparing itself for all the delicious smokey BBQ'd meats and salady summer cuisines in store!

Time to dive nose deep into recipe books and get experimenting with some refreshing seasonal ingredients for said BBQ's!

You know that feeling of utter joy when you forget you've made something the night before and open your fridge the morning after… yeah that.

Beaming.

That was my breakfast sorted. Sweet yet salty, chocolatey, sticky marshmallowy yumminess! These babies are the easy peasiest treat to whip up in less than 20 minutes.

And lets face it, who doesn't love the humble rice crispy cake. (If you answered 'me' to said question, we need to have some serious words)

This shop does bad things to me…in the best way possible.

I become like a magpie ogling every item, EVERY item. There isn't a single thing in Oliver Bonas which I do not want.

Anyone else feel the same?

Saturday, 2 May 2015


Drip drip drop little April showers…la la la does anyone actually know the rest of the words? Because I don't. Well I've been a busy B this month keeping myself amused whilst William is rehearsing up north. Highlights being- spending quality time with my bezzie who's back from tour, baking to my heart's content and I got a job! <3
