Tefal ingenio Review

Tefal ingenio 13 Piece Set Review

Edit 02/05/2017, a year and a half later: the detachable handles for the pans are now beginning to deteriorate and will soon need replacing.   I’ve made some new friends in the kitchen over the past month or two. We were a little nervous of each other at first, but we’re fast becoming thick as thieves. I’ve always known that Tefal are undoubtedly the way to go for non-stick frying pans, but the ingenio set is actually beginning to change the way I cook – for the better, of course. I umm’d and ahh’d over how best to tackle this review. Should I condense it and leave things out to make for easy reading, or cover all the bases I want to talk about and take the hit of being potentially long winded? I chose the latter, presuming that if you clicked on this post in the first place, you’re genuinely interested in this set of pans. I’ll give you the pictures first to ease you in. What actually is Tefal ingenio? The ingenio cookware …

Homemade Cranberry Sauce with Orange Zest and Mixed Spice

Cranberry Sauce (the way my Nan makes it)

This is the recipe. It’s the only one you’ll ever need, and you can keep it in the back of your brain for later, you hardly even need to write it down. The reason I know this is because last week, whilst I was dancing round Sainsbury’s looking for Christmas recipe inspiration, I saw a packet of fresh cranberries and decided that I needed to make cranberry sauce that very day. So I called my Nan, she gave me the recipe, and I remembered it (and adjusted it slightly to fit the amount of cranberries per bag in Sainsbury’s). I’ve not written it down since either, it’s just still in my head. How cool is that? It’s never happened before. Is that Christmas magic or is that Christmas magic? Anyway, I’ll stop showing off about my new found memory skills for one moment so that I can tell you why you need to make this. Christmas dinner is hard work. Yes, it’s basically just a big roast, but it’s for like 8 people and they …

Hey, Check This Out

Guys I’m sorry, for the first (and almost definitely not the last) time, my Sunday post is going out on a Monday. I just had too busy a weekend to get this out there. I’ve had such an awesome week though, and I cannot wait for you to read all about it. Remember to tell me allllllll about your week in the comments – I particularly want to hear how you’ve been getting festive! Good things that happened this week I went for my first Christmas dinner. It was at Wetherspoon’s. There were two different types of potato. Jess wrote about it here. I finally decorated my tree! It was a nightmare getting it down from the loft (we put it off by watching three Christmas films back to back on channel 5) but so worth it now that it’s up. I went to a Harry Potter quiz with Jess and Josh at The Globe yesterday, it was so. fun. I haven’t geeked out like that maybe ever. Me and my dog dressed up in …
