Scooby snacks cookie maker

An offical toy from scooby Doo. I think is costs about £15; I bought it for my daughter’s 6th birthday.
I hope this review will be particularly useful for all those mothers who were sucked in by the ready steady cook range of toys. This isn’t an ordinary kitchen appliance in a different colour and double the price. But this isn’t exactly a cookie maker either. It is more like a food scruncher! What you do is pour in ingredients like cornflakes, broken biscuits and chocolate chips; turn the handle round and round so it all becomes crumbs. It lands in a little bowl, in which you put a layer of jam (otherwise the other ingredients won’t stick together) and press down the presser (though you’re lucky if you can tell what the picture pressed into it is supposed to be. Then you leave it in the fridge to set for 20 minutes and voila! There’s your cookie! The reality is more like Voila! There’s your little pile of crumbs stuck together with jam!
But because the process of making the ‘cookie’ is so easy, a child as young as 5 or 6 can easily make this with a bare minimum of help from a parent. Nice and easy for the parent too – all you have to do is clear up the spilt breakfast cereal, and eat the left over chocolate chips. So actually, I really would recommend this toy. It is a bit sticky, but you can just imagine the fun the kids will have putting all kinds of food from your cupboard into these Scooby snacks!

Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
