Jamie Oliver’s Quick Homemade Ice Cream
I feel like I’m repeating myself when I say I can’t believe it’s the weekend already so I’m not!! In this post I want to show you something that I’ve made earlier this evening.
I’m thankful that my dad offered to help me when I said I wanted to make some homemade ice cream and we brought the ingredients last weekend ready.
These are the ingredients I bought;

For all the ingredients it cost me £4.55. They were easy to find in store. I chose to get smaller amounts as I didn’t want to make a huge batch to end up not liking it.
We used two thirds of the cherries, all of the yoghurt and a spoonful of honey. All we did was blitz the cherries and yoghurt in the blender, then add the honey. You may add more of the honey if it’s to your desired flavouring, honey is used to sweeten it.
Then poured the mixture into a Tupperware type of box and laid flat in the freezer for around two hours for it to harden up.
We have these cute little ice cream dishes in the cupboard, isn’t it lovely? The texture is a bit like a sorbet when scooping out of the box.
The taste is quite tarty and you can get a hint of the yoghurt in the flavouring, but I think this is because we didn’t add two ingredients. In the original recipe from Jamie Oliver, he has mint and Pimms. I half forgot and half reluctant to buy mint as I didn’t want to waste the rest of what wasn’t used. I didn’t get Pimms as I don’t drink alcohol. I’m looking for suggestions that would combine with the cherries and perhaps add a more sweeter flavour to it without adding sugar. This was our first time in trying anything like this and it was fun to do something with my dad.
Do you like to cook? If so, what are your favourite recipes and are they created by a famous chef? I look forward to trying more of Jamie’s recipes as he tends to cook the kind of things I like.
Thank you for reading this post and I hope to see you in my next one soon. Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend 😘❤️ xxx
It was just the other day when I came across a documentary by Keith Allen filming James Harries who is now known as Lauren Harries. Does the name ring a bell to you? He was the 80s/90s child prodigy who claimed to know about Antiques. He had thick, curly blonde hair and always wore a dicky bow tie. I'll post a picture of him as a young boy, I'm sure you'll remember him when you see him. Back to the documentary. James is now Lauren after a sex reassignment operation. I actually think she still seems confused and delirious. In fact the whole family are living in a world of fantasy, delirious, disfunctional and delusion. All the way through I kept an open mind, in a way, I kind of felt sorry for them. All those years ago, Mark and Kate must have been really desperate to push their youngest son into the limelight forging a claim that he could do antiquing at such a tender age. I thought it was good that Lauren had counselling during the treatment but when it revealed that her own …
Hi everyone! I want to tell you how I created this eye makeup look on myself from last week. I think it looks really nice and quite natural which is great for every day style.
The products that I used are as follows; Rimmel UK - Pinkadilly Circus Eyeshadow Palette ‘Rosie for Autograph’ by Marks and Spencer - Cream Eyeshadow Stick GOSH COSMETICS - Forever Eyeshadow Stick Avon UK - True Colour Glimmersrick Eyeliner Benefit Cosmetics - Bang BadGal Mascara How I created this eye look. I started of by applying the the lightest shade which is a white colour all over the lid as a base. Then using the light pink along the crease line and all over the lid. Starting from a third off the inner corner, I applied the slightly darker shade just along the lid. Then with the darkest shade which is like a dark pinky/brown in the outer corner. This creates like a smokey eye effect. I didn’t think it was showing up as much as I hoped so I decided to apply some of the ‘Rosie’ Eyeshadow Stick in the outer corner…
Hi peeps, So it’s been ten years since I had my wrist fused and the journey has certainly not been easy or pretty from the word go!! I’m going to share with you the story of what I have been through from before the surgery and the time since. I can’t remember certain things but I can remember most of it all. Growing up; I was used to getting injuries, different pains, and various dislocations so at first, I just thought it was another thing like usual when I started getting pain in my left hand. It caused a bit of pain when I moved my little finger but it wasn’t dislocated or broken. I preservered with it for a bit before I decided to get it checked out. Some time later; I was referred to a local orthopaedic surgeon who I had seen many times over the years so he knew me. As usual, he had X-rays done and said ‘I’m referring you to Wrightington Hospital. I don’t want to perform surgery on you with you having EDS, but they’re more specialist than I am.’ So I agreed.
