Mother’s Day Family Roast with M&S

M&S Mothers Day Lam Dinner - Pikalily Food Blog

One of the great things about running a food blog is that you get to work with great brands from time to time and that was the case this week when we were asked to sample the Marks and Spencer Mother’s Day family dinner.  Much like the meal deals you’ll see in most supermarkets each week, this Mother’s Day meal deal provides you with a main course, dessert and some sides.  There isn’t a starter but you do get a bottle of wine or soft drink to help make the occasion a real celebration.

Celebrating Valentine’s Day with M&S

Valentine's Day meal deal M and S - Pikalily Food blog

We enjoy nothing more than rustling up a nice meal or doing some baking in the kitchen, but every so often it’s nice to treat yourself and have a bit of a lazy one.  While this may often mean eating out at a restaurant or grabbing something from your local takeaway, you can also have a lazy one by dining in.  Supermarkets are continuously trying to outdo each other in their meal deals for two, and tonight we spotted a great deal in M&S that we just had to grab and enjoy.  It was the M&S Valentine’s Day meal deal offer.  So this weekend, forget about paying over the odds for a table at your local restaurant (although there’s nothing wrong with that), and head to M&S and check out their meal deals; you’ll certainly be impressed.

Party season has begun at M&S

M&S Christmas Food - Pikalily Food Blog

There’s just something so inviting about the food court at M&S and on a recent trip to their Sprucefield store we couldn’t resist from helping ourselves to lots of goodies.  As our wedding draws ever closer we decided to stock up on some party food so that we can feed any guests who decide to pop by on the run up to our big day.  With a 3 for 2 offer we certainly got value for money.  If you’re looking for some party food for the upcoming festive season then we’d strongly recommend checking out the range on offer at M&S.  They also have some Christmas party food combos available to order online.  To give you an idea of some of the food you can grab this Christmas at M&S, here’s a list of the food we got.  All of these can be frozen to allow you to get the whole Christmas period out of using them.  We’ve sampled a few of each of them ourselves and the rest are now stored away awaiting guests over the Christmas season.

The taste of summer thanks to M&S

M and S Summer Flavour feast - Pikalily Food Blog

It was a case of better late than never as we only recently came across the M&S Summer of Flavour range.  Unfortunately our nearest Marks and Spencer’s is a good 45 minutes from our home but we called in recently to their Lisburn store when out for a day trip and were really impressed with some of the great produce on order, none more so than their Summer of Flavour range.  With such an awesome range of meat stirring back at us from the fridge, we just had to go get some!  Summer may be over, but the party can still continue with M&S (well at least until an even bigger party kicks off at Christmas).

Blueberry delight with Genesis Crafty pancakes

Genesis Crafty Blueberry Pancakes - Pikalily Food Blog

One of our favourite weekend breakfasts is to enjoy some homemade crepes or pancakes.  Sweet or savoury, they are always a popular choice in our house and rarely will there be any left at the table after we have dished up a serving of crepes / pancakes.  Perhaps our favourite way of enjoying pancakes is to serve them with a helping of summer berries and some fresh cream.  Strawberries, blackberries and blackcurrants are all perfect accompaniments for pancakes throughout the year, but especially during the summer months when they are at their freshest.  This weekend we had a bit of a lazy one and opted for some ready made pancakes from a local supplier Genesis Crafty, and it’s fair to say they were a bit of a treat.
