Go on, be a tosser. (9 easy pancake recipes, from vegan to gluten free, leftover porridge and everything in between.)

Posted on Mar 17, 2016

Apparently we don?t bother with pancakes on Pancake Day any more. That?s what a press release that landed in my email inbox this afternoon told me; that we, as country, aren?t all tossers. We don?t flip out. We no longer belong in the gang of whisk-pour-fry-flip-lemon-sugar-munchers. I simply don?t believe it, and I hope you will all prove me wrong. I am a one-person pancake frenzy. I enjoy them with my boy most weekends, and whenever there is a surfeit of either bananas, apples or mushy porridge to use up. If you?re stuck for inspiration for tomorrow, here?s my 9 favourite pancake recipes from the last few years, from vegan to porridge to gramcakes, and everything in between. And the regular kind, too. Enjoy! Click here for pancake recipes galore! From left to right: 1: No-egg pancakes. 2: Silver dollar pancakes. 3: Porridge pancakes. 4: Rolly-up pancakes. 5: Barley pancakes. 6: Porridge pancakes again. 7: American pancakes. 8: 9: Barley pancakes with peaches and yoghurt. 10: Gramcake (gluten free) (not pictured).     Jack Monroe.

Peanut Butter Granola, 11p (VEGAN)

Posted on Mar 17, 2016

I first made this for myself as I love peanut butter in the mornings, but not having a toaster, popping bread under the grill inevitably goes wrong when you have a three year old to get washed and socked and shoed in the mornings ? so I cobbled this together and bunged it in a big jar. Perfect with hot milk, or cold, or even pop it in the microwave for a minute for a warm, soft, stodgy, comforting start to your day. There are endless variations to this too, just add a good oil, like coconut, in place of the peanut butter to hold your oats together (oo-er) and the possibilities are endless. I recommend dark chocolate with toasted or ground almonds if the purse stretches. Dark chocolate and marmalade is similar to a famous round chocolate orange in a bright blue box, and for breakfast, such fun! Golden syrup can be replaced with treacle, sugar, or any sweetening agent of your choice. If you feel like erring on the side of virtuous, chop a banana into it. Makes 8 portions at 11p each. Costs worked out at Sainsburys, as it?s my nearest supermarket, and similar products are available at most leading supermarkets for competitive prices. 30ml oil, 3p (£3/3l, Sainsburys own brand) 4 tbsp/65g peanut butter, 33p (£3/600g Sun Pat crunchy ? I use SP as it doesn?t contain palm oil, cheaper brands are available.) 4 tbsp/100g golden syrup, 18p (£1.25/680g Sainsburys own brand) 300g rolled porridge oats, 36p (£1.20/kg, Sainsburys own brand) First, preheat the oven to 180C. Melt the peanut butter and golden syrup together with the oil ? either in a medium saucepan on a low heat for a minute or two, or in the microwave on full power for 30 seconds ? and stir to combine. Add the oats and mix well to coat then in the oil-peanut-syrup mixture. Lightly grease a baking tray and tip the granola onto it, gently flattening down with the back of a spoon to spread approximately 1cm thick. Bake in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool, before transferring to an airtight container to store. It will keep for around 2 months. Jack Monroe. Twitter: @MxJackMonroe.

Captain America: Civil War ? 10 Biggest Things We Still Don?t Know

Posted on Mar 17, 2016

Someone?s going to die, but who? Marvel There may still be a little while to go until Captain America: Civil War hits cinemas, but after the recent release of the final trailer it looks like we won?t know much more until the movie starts screening for press in a few weeks time, meaning the speculation is only going to get more rampant. Civil War is by far the most ambitious MCU movie since the original Avengers, with more moving parts than ever before, and so the movie?s marketing has naturally thrown up a ton of tantalising questions. From the roles of various supporting characters to the ultimate outcome of the battle itself, we have to consider the sneaky tricks that Marvel Studios have hidden up their sleeves, and how little about the film we really know for certain. Could we be in for another twist on the level of the Mandarin switcharoo, for instance? Or will Civil War be a satisfying yet largely predictable outing? While Age Of Ultron rode in on a tidal wave of hype and ended up being merely good and none-too-surprising, hopefully the Russo Brothers will serve up satisfying, occasionally shocking answers to these crucial questions. 10. How Much Of Spider-Man Will We See? Marvel Studios We finally got our first glimpse at Tom Holland?s Spider-Man in the recent final trailer, but it still doesn?t really answer the burning question about the character: how significant is Spidey?s role in the film? Considering that he was a vital part of the comic, many are hoping for the web-slinger to get a meaty role ahead of next year?s solo reboot movie. The Likely Answer: Expect an extended cameo and nothing more, and then be pleasantly surprised if Marvel Studios have deliberately held back on showing him off in action sequences. It?d be a shock if he was in the film for more than about 10 minutes, especially with everything else it has to juggle: it?ll likely lay the groundwork and then send Spidey on his merry way ahead of him becoming a proper Avenger in Infinity War. read...

Buon Compleanno Acqua di Parma

Posted on Mar 17, 2016

As we know Acqua di Parma has long been a key player on the luxury market, in fact it celebrates it?s centenary year this very year. The brand was established a century ago with the classic COLONIA, an authentic and iconic fragrance that has inspired the Acqua di Parma world and its core values based on the best of the Italian lifestyle. Over the years the brand has expanded its product range, introducing new colonias, Collezione Barbiere (shaving products and accessories), Le Nobili (feminine fragrances inspired by the flowers of Italian gardens), Home Fragrance (scented candles and room sprays for the home) and the Blu Mediterraneo and Blu Mediterraneo Italian Resort ranges (fragrances and cosmetics inspired by the most natural and exclusive locations on the Italian Mediterranean). The Brand has always been closely bound with the Italian Mediterranean region, with its beauitful and rolling vistas and encompassing all aspects of its intense nature. A microcosm of vegetation endowed with exceptional sensory and therapeutic powers. And it is to this place, the only one in the world in terms of the variety and richness of its botanical ingredients, that Acqua di Parma has turned in order to create Italian Resort, the new global age- defying line for thorough and deep revitalisation of your skin. Plant species that grow in the adverse climatic conditions of the Italian Mediterranean region have, in fact, developed exceptional resources for survival, and among them the Sicilian Maritime Pine is one of the hardiest and most long-lived. The secret of its vigour lies in the richness of the active ingredients contained in its bark. After 15 years of research, Acqua di Parma has succeeded in encapsulating the infinite revitalising power of Maritime Pine within its Mediterranean Re-Activating Complex, a precious elixir contained in every product in the Italian Resort range. The Italian Resort range now includes six new face formulations which make the most of the advanced technology of the Mediterranean Re-Activating Complex to create an even richer and more complete  routine. Face Restoring Mask, an intensive treatment to set aside for your skin twice a week to activate cell renewal and obtain a deep, lasting, age-defying effect. Face and Eye Cleansing Oil and Face Cleansing Mousse to cleanse the skin gently. Purifying Facial Toner and Moisturizing Face Lotion to purify and nourish it, and UV Face Protection SPF 50 PA+++ to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Here a link to...
