On this page we will list the books, companies and products that we have used repeatedly around our home.  We have used every product/ company on this page so are confident to recommend them to other people.

KitchenAid KSM150PSBY 5-Qt. Artisan Series with Pouring Shield – Boysenberry by Kitchenaid Kitchen Electrics

Now, although initially this was a bit of an investment, it is something that gets used a lot in the kitchen when any sort of mixing, whisking is needed in our recipes. We also have the grater attachment that we use a lot for making coleslaw which just makes it even more useful.

As it is such a sturdy bit of kit, it will hopefully last and with all the add on attachments you can get, it becomes a valuable tool in the kitchen.


We have a lot of coobooks at home and sometimes there’s so many that we come across a “lost” gem that we haven’t used for a while, but there are always a few staple books that we do come back to time and time again for ideas and inspiration.

Le Creuset Signature Cast Iron Round Casserole, 20 cm – Midnight Grey

Our Le creuset pots get used a lot in our house for one pots, stews, bolognese etc.  They were a little bit more expensive initially, but once you’ve got them, they will last a lifetime.
