Scanpan Accent Cookware - Solving a problem

by: Highland Homewares on

The problem with good quality saucepans and frypans is that they last forever, I've had my set for nearly 12 years now and they just will not die. This being the case it is important to purchase a range that you really like. I'm talking about the feel of the handle, the ability to see what's going on in the pot through the glass lid, and most importantly how it looks. This is why Highland Homewares have introduced a new Scanpan cookware range called "Accent" The beautiful thing about this range of cookware is it ticks all the boxes above.   ...read more

There's always so much fun to be had and little things you can do differently even if you're using a box recipe (most of us do). One of my family's favourites is a black forest cupcake. Super easy and presentable for parties. Use the darkest chocolate cake mix possible, we normally use devil's food. That's the boring part- the fun part is the toppings. You'll need the typical Black Forest fixings- cherry pie filling, and vanilla frosting  ...read more

you can use coffee for WHAT?

by: Blog Administrator on

Coffee is such a favourite hot beverage that we've forgotten throughout the years its many uses. Our mothers and grandmothers used these tricks back in the days before modern conveniences. Keep one thing in mind- these secrets don't require the most expensive of coffee, just a simple pick will do- the idea is to save money and a trip to the store if you can. Whether you're an avid or amateur gardener one great use for your used coffee grounds is to sprinkle some on ant hills. You'll have to sprinkle a bit on all of the ant hills surrounding, but it does work. And a bit of common sense  ...read more
