Minced Meat Muffins

These savoury muffins make perfect snacks or main courses. You can eat them on its own or with salad, guacamole or even chips. The best thing they are carb and gluten free.



400g minced meat (I use pork)

200g smoked extra mature cheddar

coconut oil spray

2 whole eggs

1 teaspoon ground paprika

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

(If you like garlic, push 3-4 cloves of garlic in the mixture)


Grate the cheese and just combine all the ingredients well together.

Spray silicone muffin moulds with coconut oil spray. Shape balls with your hands and put them into muffin moulds. 

Bake in the oven on 180 degree for 45 minutes or until golden.

Say Cheese

I am a big cheese lover and I like to try new flavours. I was very happy when I got an invitation as an Orchard member to the Tesco finest* cheese Orchard Campaign. I got money off coupons to buy cheese.

Tesco finest* Cheese products are very tasty and unique. If you have guests - and you want to impress them - choose the Tesco finest* Cheese range. You can find it in chilled aisle.

The preparation is very easy and quick. Hot cheeses put to the oven or use a pan. Cold cheeses serve only as you see on the box or are as creative as you want. I like to eat lots of leafy veggies with my lovely cheese sandwiches.

I eat Tesco finest* Cheese as a snack very often, because it is very healthy – contains lots of proteins and calcium.
The new Tesco finest* Cheese range offers something for everyone — and for any occasion! Whether it is a dinner party, date or rugby match, choose the right cheese for your next get-together.

Tesco stocks a wide range of unusual and unique cheeses. Only the best of the best is good enough for Tesco finest* range. So in their search for the best cheeses they visit farmers markets, food exhibitions, cheese exhibitions and small producers to seek out the latest trends and flavours. (Thanks Tesco!)



My first choice was finest* Extra MatureSomerset Cheddar. This delicious and full flavoured cheese reminds me to my perfect holiday in Cheddar where I saw how this cheese is made. 

My second favourite is one British cheese too: finest* Smoked Extra Mature Cheddar. I love everything smoked. Yummy!


I tried finest* Chaource, a delicious soft and crumbly French cheese which is also perfect for fondue. This cheese is made in the heart of Burgundy by the Lincet family for over 10 years.


Tesco stocks goat cheese as well: finest* Beacon Blue GoatsCheese and finest* Inglewhite Goats Cheese. They have overwhelming flavour and creamy texture. You can definitely tell these delicious cheeses are produced using goat milk. 


finest* Swiss Gruyere is a cheese with heritage. Matured for 10 months in the Swiss Alps using traditional methods unchanged since 1115. The taste is really unique and delightful.


finest*Parmigiano Reggiano is made in northern Italy, this delicious hard cheese has been produced using the same methods for more than 900 years and is matured for 30 months before hitting shelves. The unique flavour of the cheese is due in part to the fact that cattle are fed on the grass that grows around the farm they are bred on – and cheese tasters from the region can even tell from which area the cheese came just by tasting it.
Amazing facts! Without being an Orchard member I would not know this.

Panasonic IPL Come Round Party

I’m a Come Round panelist and my first trial was a brand new product – not even on the market yet. The product is the Panasonic Cordless IPL Hair Removal System. I’ve got this fantastic product for free. I was one of the first 200 people in the UK to try this great product.

 I used the IPL once a fortnight for 8 weeks, during August and September and I am sure I will continue to use it. I am very satisfied with the product. My hubby loves it as well. He wanted an IPL very long time ago and Come Round made his dream come true.


I’m very satisfied with the long lasting result. The more I use it the lighter my body hair is and the smoother and more hair-free my skin becomes. I can recommend Panasonic Cordless IPL Hair Remover for women and men equally.

I was bored and fed up with razors, because the short term results. I was bored and fed up with wax and epilators, because the pain and ingrown hair. I think only the IPL technology can solve the hair removal problem. Letting it done in salons is very expensive and requires lots of time but now you can have your own easy to use IPL machine. The price is quite high (I can send you discount codes ;) but it is worth for it. One bulb last for 20,000 flashes, it means, you need to change it every 2-3 years. When you do everything at home you save money and time. I don’t need to go to the salon any more.

The product is brilliant and easy to use. There is no risk, you cannot hurt yourself.
Panasonic IPL is cordless, lightweight and has almost double the battery life of its closest competitor. You can use it everywhere in your house. Imagine, watching telly and get rid of unwanted hair without pain!
You can even use it on your bikini line. Just do not use it on your face.

I highly recommend these products for everyone – women and men equally. It works perfectly with thick hair so it’s perfect for men as well. It is designed especially for black, dark brown, brown and dark blond hair.

The result is long lasting. The laser hair removal has to be done in multiple sessions because the hair grows in cycles. Multiple visits are needed to make sure that all the hair is actually removed. Inflammation causes the hair follicle to go into the resting phase.

Come Round sent me also a huge party pack to guest my friends and show them my new hair removal toy. My nine guest were more than happy to try an IPL no pain hair removal machine. We spent a nice Saturday afternoon together with good music, knowledge quiz, fun prizes and lots of laughter.

The party pack contained a very useful 3–in-1 manicure tool. The Stylfile 2 has three professional nail tools in one:
1.      Curved nail file
2.      Under-nail skimmer
3.      Cuticle pusher

It is the perfect handbag essential!
