Note to self-measure ingredients correctly and don't let the result be a disaster. Me and the kitchen not a good mix!

Katsu Curry Recipe Review

Katsu Curry Recipe

So with my want to have a real flair, ok more Nigella in the kitchen I am taking on more food recipes to try!
Don’t you get bored with the same foods?
Well your not alone and were given a chance to try Katsu curry.
I Love a curry!
I’ve started to up my heat platelet before I was chicken tikka masala, korma or a lamb rogan josh.
Then braving it, chicken jalfrezi ordered, and to my surprise it was great, I try to have this when I have a nasty cold blow away the cobwebs.
With trying new types of flavours, We were sent a Yutaka Kit that can be purchased here, and with following the instructions and having the correct ingredients to make Katsu curry
* note to self, be sure flour is still to date.
Egg I think two would have been ideal,
And cut the chicken into smaller pieces as cooking time was slow!
Three bowls
– Egg
– Flour
– panko
– Chicken
Chicken was to be dipped in flour, egg and then the crisp coat, then in a pan again * note to self-smaller manageable pieces
Transfer to pan and hot oil. Until golden and cooked throughout.
In another pan, 1 tbsp of oil add one chopped onion, while that’s cooking boil 500 ml water and get a tray of katsu paste ready to pop in and melt.
In another pot, long grain rice is cooking with added sweetcorn for five a day.

The result, with fussy eaters, was a good try I’ll be doing again!

#wackybakers Num Noms


We were given the fantastic opportunity to join up with Num Noms for their #WackyBakers campaign.

In taking on the #WackyBakers challenge we were sent a pack of Series 2 Num Noms, our box was Freezie pops!
There are four Num Noms a spoon and a dish,
I have seen these before but not up close, so for me, I was happy (initially I had only heard of Shopkins), but I was amazed to find out Num Noms are scented to their Character.


With the Series 2 packs, you have a starter pack then for the more experienced Nom Nummer’ you have the Deluxe packs and Playsets !!
Listed below –

Starter Packs –

lip gloss truck play set – included is special edition Num Noms

Diner food
Freezie Pop

* You can buy from  Num Noms, ToysRUs, The Entertainer, Smyths and all good toy stores * 

They are so cute, I have fallen in love with Kawaii, and I love the cuteness that Num Noms show differently to other brands on the market. Having that flavour fusion mixed gets your senses going.
You can make your meal combo recipes by mixing the characters together along with a container and utensil per pack

so with that, the challenge was to look at the series 2 and make our own a real wacky baker meal, we decided on chocolate chip and mint sandwich.
I first had to purchase the ingredients from the shop.#wackybakers num-noms-1

I then set them out and explain to Keira what we had to do. Following the instructions, we scooped up the ice cream putting it onto the first chocolate chip cookie and then on the other cookie which we then sandwiched them together.

Can I just say this combination is something I would not have tried freely, as it just didn’t sound appetising in my mind, BUT for the purpose of trying something new, I did just that? WOW, it was lovely I need to stop pre-judging before I try.

So do you think you will give it ago ?
