Stamp it.

There’s nothing better than receiving something sweet in the post and at the moment we are loving these cute retro postcards from Sugarboo. We know a few loved ones would also love to see them posted through their letterbox too… 
The coastal collections has us dreaming of sunny afternoons on the beach!

Winter Warmer

After coming in cold from our celebrations on Bonfire Night, we thought of something we could eat as a comforting warm-up snack for us and our friends. This one is really easy to make and great for making big batches for cold-nosed guests. Check our first winter-warmer of the season!


Ingredients
3x Baking potato (medium)
1 red pepper
1 avocado
1 tub soft cream cheese
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp oregano
3 rashers bacon
Handful grated cheese 

Method
-       Pre heat oven to 190 C
-       Bake potatoes for hour and a half (or until soft)
-       Pre-make filling: chop pepper, avocado and mix with spices and bacon and the soft cream cheese
-       Scrape out potato from skin of the jackets and combine with the filling mixture
-       Grill the bacon rashers until they are nearly done
-       Chop and mix with the filling mixture and then put the filling back inside the jackets
-       When you are ready to have your winter warmers, simply place on tray with tin foil and put in the oven for twenty minutes (warm oven to 180 C)
-       Enjoy with a good ‘warming’ Indian beer!
