Freefrom Christmas cookies | #jaidemas


I always like a spot of baking on the run up to Christmas Day, and cookies are something that everyone loves and just an all round win. Perfect to just have in the house on the snack table (does anyone else do this for Christmas Day?) or just an evening snack after a day full of food. By the way, these are so delicious, and I'm not just saying this. Its an easy recipe thats quick to make and quick to eat. Enjoy!

Ingredients you need:
Gluten free self raising flour -300g
Caster sugar -300g
Dairy free marg - 200g
Dried cranberries - as many as you want
Freefrom chocolate - as many as you want
Xanthan gum - 1stp 
Eggs - 2 medium 


Step one: Requires you to engage your guns and cream the sugar and marg together. You need to keep going until its quite creamy with no lumps to be seen. 


Step two: Crack the two eggs in (making sure no parts of the shell has fallen in) Mix together until it's completely mixed up with the creamy sugar and marg. 


Step three: You want to pop in your flour and a tsp of Xanthan gum. The gum helps the mix to stay together and not crumble due to the flour being gluten free. Don't go mad with ya mixing as the flour could go everywhere! Be firm and careful and make sure it all mixes in nicely.  


Step four: Now it's time to pop in your extra ingredients. I went for chocolate buttons as I feel you get better amounts when biting into the cookies. As these are Christmas cookies I fancied including something a little different so I went for dried cranberries. I'm not sure why, but I associate these with Christmas time and thought they'd go nicely with the chocolate. Theres no real expert way of doing this step other than chucking them in, give it a stir and your good to go. 


Step five: Scoop the mixture out in small balls and pop on a baking tray. I tend to go for five per tray and go for a ping pong sized amount. They should go into a pre-heated oven at gas mark 6 (200 degrees c).



These are honestly delicious and all my friends and family enjoyed the first batch I made as a tester so I'll be making these today. 

Merry Christmas!

xoxo

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
