The lovely Nicky at Pink Recipe Box holds a Creative Wednesday link party every week on her blog. Here people can share their latest blog post - whatever the topic!
I love Pink Recipe Box in general (yes, I am subscribed!), but I just love this great idea that she has come up with. So I thought I'd check it out last week - and my post was featured this week as one of the most popular shared! (yay!)

Article: Accepting store bought me

I am a busy cook, living a very busy life. And yes, sometimes that does mean that I buy things that can make my life a little bit easier. In this article I talk about accepting that it's ok to buy store bought things and that doesn't make us bad cooks! It just makes us busy.

Tips and hints: How to butterfly a chicken

I butterflied my first chicken on the weekend - and my, oh, my, it was an experience! I definitely need more practice (and a new pair of sharper cooking shears!). I spent the whole time apologising to the chicken as I felt so disrespectful hacking away at it.

However, in my search of how to do it I did find a great video that explained everything. I only watched it the once and I was on my "merry" way.

Chocolate mousse, Raspberry white chocolate mousse - Steph's KitchenRecipe: Chocolate Mousse

I entertained for the first time in a very long time on Saturday night. When I asked about what people would like for dessert, giving them a few options, everyone picked chocolate mousse!

So I set off to make it for the first time, and it was much easier than I thought! I actually split the recipe in half and made raspberry, white chocolate as well (for me, that was my favourite).And the best part was everyone LOVED it.
