Date Night Cookbook..


So, it's that there Valentine's Day weekend and I suspect there are already lots of lovely plans being made for the day itself. But what if you need a little inspiration in order to plan something special and a little bit different?

 I was recently asked to try out the Date Night Cookbook, which is an absolute visual feast of photography and recipe ideas, peppered with little nuggets of dating advice as well. From beach picnics to cosy nights in, this has a selection of simple but tasty recipes to try out.

Given that it was also Pancake Day this week, I decided to give the Under-the-Covers pancake recipe a try, with various toppings on offer. The batter is easy to make, but turned out a little thicker than I tend to prefer, so I added a little more milk after the first couple of pancakes. They were yummy though and just the way to celebrate pancake day. I'm looking forward to trying out more of these recipes - a beach BBQ sounds great when the weather picks up a little, no?

What's your favourite pancake topping? I'm all about the lemon and sugar.
