Here at BitchBuzz, we heart a good swoon over MyDeco.com, because alongside pricier items which we can only fanaticise about putting in our Cath Kidston and Alessi filled homes (it’s a fantasy, right?), there are plenty of brilliant things that we can actually afford to buy.

I think lamb tastes best when cooked with aromatic spices, which cut through the richness of the meat and create a deep, delicious flavour. These lamb kofte combine coriander, cumin, paprika and plenty of chilli with lamb mince to make kebabs which are perfect for BBQing, or for quickly grilling after a busy day.

There's something about "Days of the Week" goodies that just makes me happy. Mondays and Wednesdays generally aren't very fun, but having them stitched on your underwear makes them that much more bearable.
Also, if you're feeling particularly rebellious, wearing your Friday knickers on a Tuesday can give you a mid-week thrill.

The best thing about inventing recipes is re-inventing them to make them even better! This weekend, still riding on the novelty value of my new Slow Cooker, I decided to re-work my Cider Roasted Pork recipe by adding a braising stage, with the aim of creating a meltey, ‘pulled pork’ style roast, bursting with the flavour of the cider it was cooked in.

Tea is a very English thing.
Some people are very particular about how they have theirs:
One sugar, two sugars, no sugar but sugar substitute please, milk in first, milk in last, milk with the teabag still in, milk when the teabag is out, not too much milk, leave the tea bag in for at least two minutes, ugh I can't be arsed with tea bags 'll just use

Last month, The Window Ledge Gardener was all about potatoes. As those of you currently growing spuds will know, they're scarcely the sort of thing you can grow in six inches of space on a windowledge, unlike this month's subjects, which are tomatoes and chilis.

When I was in New York earlier this year, I had a truly amazing plate of garlic spaghetti at a restaurant in Little Italy. Even though it probably contained barely more than garlic, olive oil and pasta, it was bursting with delicious flavour.
They all say the simplest dishes are the best, and they also carry the bonus of being the cheapest. I have added lemon and parsley to this dish to give it a real boost of summery freshness making it the perfect dish to follow a few pints of sun-...

The "Keep Calm and Carry On" slogan has been seen pretty much everywhere lately. @juliaball uses it as her Twitter avatar, and bloggers like Melissa Summers are decorating their homes with that ever famous poster.

The BitchBuzz team is spread all around the world, and we've quickly learned that not everything we love - such as Macaroni & Cheese - is readily available on opposite sides of the pond. Let's face it, actually making proper Mac & Cheese is not nearly as fun as just boiling noodles and tossing in some powdered cheese pr...

I told you I was obsessed with beetroot, so you didn’t think you could get away without another beetroot recipe did you? They may not be in season just yet, but I’m not letting that minor fact get in my way (especially when they’re still in Sainsbury’s!) and have been sticking those little magenta globes in just about everything.
