Scandinavian living

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 21st August 2017

After looking at the seaside chic of Coastal Retreat last month, this time we’re all about Nordic style. Scandinavian design has long been a favourite of interior designers and architects alike and it’s renowned for its simple sophistication – clean lines, natural materials and plenty of white and wood. Rangemaster has all you need to get the look with its latest brochure, which showcases six on-trend styles for your kitchen and how to achieve a similar effect with focal point cookers as well as complementary accessories, fixtures and fittings. Take this kitchen for instance – there’s something really relaxed about this one; it avoids the fully fitted look and goes for a more eclectic approach with freestanding and mobile trolleys and units, a handy breakfast bar, timber table and fresh white surfaces with brick tiles and painted wooden flooring contrasted with a deep charcoal feature area on the wall. Add pops of colour with bold worktop accessories – chopping boards, teapots, trays, clocks, utensils and tea towels can all add personality and pizzazz to the space.

Picnic Pick-and-Mix Handpies

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 7th August 2017

Summer holidays are here and getting outdoors is a great thing to do with the family when you’ve been cooped up in schools and offices all year. Add a a picnic into the mix you've got yourself an adventure - especially when you take the unreliable British weather into account. This recipe will not only make an event out of prepping for the picnic, but it’ll provide a range of options for young and old and something comforting enough to eat in the car hiding from the rain or light enough to eat sat in the sun. You can make the pastry with the kids and lay out all the filling options for them to choose from so that they can make their lunch and mark the tops of the pies as they wish.

Shortbread with a Malty Millionaire option

Posted by Gill Bland Tuesday, 1st August 2017

Shortbread. So simple and yet so good. Only three ingredients can make you a wonderful, buttery, crumbly biscuit which is perfect to have on your own with a moment of calm and a cup of tea or to package up into a gift. Not only that, but you can use it as a base for all sorts of wonderful sweet treats - perhaps with cream or mousse on top or indeed, millionaire shortbread. However, I’ve always had dubious results when it comes to the caramel part of the shortbread-for-rich-people so I’m sharing a cheats method with you which I discovered by throwing a load of ingredients in my baking cupboard into a pan and has since become a family favourite.

Coastal retreat

Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 3rd July 2017

Rangemaster has a cooker for every style, so no matter whether you favour the industrial look, Scandi living or a touch of country farmhouse chic, there’s an appliance so suit. You can download or order the latest brochure for free – just click on the link to view the collections, moodboards and suggested products for yourself. One of my favourites, especially at this time of year, is Coastal Retreat. I dream of having a vacation in the Hamptons one summer so turning my kitchen into a New England haven would be the next best thing! Think fresh whites and sea blue shades complementing shabby chic furniture, stripped timber floorboards and tongue-and-groove panelling on the walls. Throw in some colourful enamelled cookware, glossy brick tiles and factory lighting and you’re good to go.

Veggie Shepherd's Pie with Magic Mash

Posted by Gill Bland Monday, 15th May 2017

This week is National Vegetarian Week. Whilst their aim is to get you eating veggie for a whole week, this recipe is aimed more at the idea of foregoing meat for just one day a week. There are many arguments in support of one meat-free day a week which cite its environmental benefits and these are no small reason why it’s worth considering but I’m no scientist so I’ll leave you to form your own opinions there. However, I would suggest that an initiative like “Meat Free Monday” is worth a look for a much more mercenary reason - it can be really cheap to cook a vegetarian meal. Some sweet potatoes,  a few carrots, some celery, mushrooms, onion, a can of beans and tomatoes will usually amount to less than half the cost of one pack of beef mince but can feed the same amount of people. Think of it less as missing out on meat and more as an easy way to boost your vegetable intake and try out different recipes.

Spring Salmon Tray Bake

Posted by Gill Bland Thursday, 13th April 2017

Roast lamb is the Easter family meal of choice and it’s true, there are few things that can beat a great roast lamb dish. But with spring, perhaps even summer trying to show its face and with Easter holidays perhaps making things a bit more rushed I thought it would be nice to bring you something lighter, less time consuming and more informal. Something that you can prep in minutes, throw in the oven and then pop on the table for everyone to dig in.
