New Year, New Kitchen Looks
Posted by Hayley Gilbert Tuesday, 25th February 2014
Once the New Year is underway, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about whether your current kitchen could do with an update. Kitchen designers are already forecasting what the upcoming trends will be so it’s an ideal opportunity to start thinking about the style, materials, storage solutions and, most importantly, the appliances you’d like in your dream design.0 Comments Share
Dark Chocolate Marshmallow Cake
Posted by Gill Bland Friday, 14th February 2014
I wanted to cook Mr Pigling-Bland a valentine’s cake. Not wanting to second guess his stomachs deepest desires, I thought I'd ask him what his favourite cake was out of all the ones I've baked. Was it the one carefully iced to look like a painting by a favourite artist, or perhaps a skilfully piped cupcake? No, it was one of the messiest most embarrassing cakes that I have ever foisted upon his colleagues. It was a leaving cake for Mr B and his colleague that looked like a child had drawn on the top of it and where I ran out of icing to do the sides properly. So, maybe it's true when they say that it's the heart behind the baking that makes it taste good.0 Comments Share
I love you
Posted by James McIntosh Monday, 10th February 2014
3 simple words that are easily said, yet can have such meaning, or a casual comment. I say I love my Rangemaster, I do, but not the same way as my other half. Mind you, my Rangemaster never ever snaps back at me as my other half can. However both have stunning good looks and a great style. When I need something I know my Rangemaster will provide quicker than my other half, heat up times are super fast with the Rangemaster and results guaranteed. With my other half it requires flowers, chocolates and sometimes a bottle of champagne to get the results I require. Perhaps asking for a new car for Christmas was a little bit too much. But I do love my Rangemaster and my other half, but both in different ways.0 Comments Share

Healthy Cooking For The year Ahead
Posted by Hayley Gilbert Monday, 20th January 2014
I don’t know about you, but I start each New Year with a resolution to cook and eat more healthily. It’s the perfect antidote to all those mince pies and family-sized tubs of Quality Street. The key to creating a more healthy diet, and sticking to it, is to make sure you have the right tools for the job.

Confessions of failed New Year resolutions.
Posted by James McIntosh Tuesday, 14th January 2014
Every year I set myself a target and I jump into January really meaning to get there. My will power is strong and I'm either giving up something, refining something or starting something. Every year I tell my friends and family, every year they laugh. Every year I try to convince them, and sometimes even spend money on the process (like German lessons at the local college, I survived for one week), and you know what, I fail every time....0 Comments Share

Must not eat as many snacks.
Must not spend as much money on “breakfast on the run”.
Must eat more whole food.
Must use up leftovers more efficiently.
Must make more home-made food.
Must make more food suitable for all the family.
Now, where’s the time and self-control fairy?

Prepare ahead for Christmas
Posted by James McIntosh Tuesday, 3rd December 2013
As the song goes "It's the most wonderful time of the year". I don't know about you, but I just HATE it when one of my colleagues announces in September that all of the Christmas shopping has been completed. I consider myself a very organised man, but Christmas, I'm never ready, but I love Christmas. If it's with my family its back to Belfast or if it's with Mother-In-Law it's off to Frankfurt. I'm always back in London after a few days away for New Year to celebrate with friends. In essence, it's a week of dinners...0 Comments Share

In the Christian faith, this Sunday (24th November 2013) is the last Sunday before Advent, when the Christmas season starts. Back in Queen Victoria's day (who owned a Kitchener, the precursor of the Rangemaster), the Sunday before Advent was known as ‘Stir-up Sunday.’ Traditionally parents would show their children how to make a ...0 Comments Share
