Meet my Cybermummy Sponsor & A Giveaway

COMPETITION CLOSED
Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know that I am off to Cybermummy this year....and I can't wait! Cybermummy is the UK's premier blogging conference aimed at parent bloggers and this year it has really pulled out all the stops. There are some fab speakers lined up (Sarah Brown is the keynote speaker) as well as lots exciting workshops (I'm particularly looking forward to the Writing workshop) - if you are interested you can see the jam packed schedule here.

Today I'd like to announce Bottlegreen as my sponsor to the conference and also hold a little giveaway to celebrate them launching a brand new presse - Green Tea and Elderflower - which tastes amazing, especially mixed with vodka! Its delicate,  fragrant and extremely refreshing! Another plus is that its made with only natural ingredients with no added preservatives or sweeteners. Roll on the summer I say!

For your chance to win 6 bottles of Green Tea and Elderflower Presse all you need to do is;
1. Tell me how would you serve the new flavour? How about with ice or a slice of lime? Maybe mixed with your favourite alcohol, or even as a jelly? There are endless possibilities so get thinking.
2. Answers can be left in the comments section of this blog, on Twitter (start your tweet @jamandcream bottlegreen), or on the Jam and Clotted Cream Facebook page.
3. If you RT the competition on Twitter or Share on Facebook you will gain an extra entry, just let me know you have done so.
4. Open to UK residents only
5. Competition closes on Friday 1st April at 5pm (GMT)

Good Luck x

Please note I received the sample as a gift

  1. I think for a special occasion Green Tea and Elderflower mixed up with some champagne or fizzy wine in a tall champagne flute wth some crushed ice and a few raspberries would be lovely on a hot summers evening.

  20. Mix chilled with vodka and pour over melon balls for a summer starter. Leave the melon to adsorb some of the fluid...ba-bam a summery sweet for those lazy afternoon parties.

  31. I love those Bottlegreen cordials, for this one I think it would be delicious to pour onto sponge cake, cover that with fresh pineapple and top with greek yogurt, garnished with a few pineapple mint leaves. What do you think? Either that or as a spritzer served with a some Cava, it might even be good in a Pimms - as I don't like Pimms so am only guessing. Oh and I've retweeted :)

  36. I've recently been looking into soft drink and food matches, so I would try this with a number of different savoury and sweet dishes to see what worked best.

    Perhaps something meaty or creamy might be interesting.

    Here's the post where I am calling for ideas on soft drinks - if you do another post on your sponsor's products, that shares an idea for this, please do let me know?

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Microwave Jambalaya

Microwave meals are back and this is a fab bung it in the microwave recipe that's a real lifesaver when time is short...or when you don't have the use of an oven! People don't tend to use their microwaves for actually making meals but I've found I can do quite a lot in mine...veggie chilli, risotto's, as well as this really flavourful jambalaya with chorizo and red pepper.

I'll be posting more easy microwave meals in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on the blog.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…
