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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
