With summer on the horizon, warmer weather on the way and longer evenings approaching, it is time to get out the BBQ and start some alfresco dining with family and friends. Newman’s Own Original Sticky BBQ sauce is perfect for adding some tang to barbecue food. It’s great to use when marinating meat, vegetables and fish as everything you need is in one bottle. No need to search the cupboards for spices, oils, herbs etc. to mix together and make a tasty marinade, as you can just open up a bottle of Newman’s Own and pour over instead.

During the week, my time is precious as it seems that there is always something happening, always a job to do and I find that I’m always in a rush! With the kids at school, a part time job, my PTA volunteering, my blog, trying to keep on top of the household chores, after school clubs, homework and a puppy to contend with, it can be hard to fit everything in and prepare a meal for the family that is nutritious and homemade.

Autumn Crafts & Recipes For All the Family

I love the sound of sticks and leaves crunching under my feet, and the rays of golden sun that shine through on a lovely warm autumn day.

I consider myself really lucky to live here in North Devon, especially now I have children because we really are spolit with places to visit and have some outdoor fun. I know I did not appreciate it when I was a teenager and made my mind up that when I left home for university I was NEVER going to come back….EVER! Of course, I did and the rest of my life is history because now I love the area and would not want to live anywhere else (for now at least!).
