“Lovely Jubilee!”

“Lovely Jubilee!”

At Housebites, we all got a bit over excited and patriotic  over the Jubilee.  Jubilee puns, jubilee colours, jubilee jokes, and of course a nice smattering of careless jubilee laughter filled the office and overflowed onto the streets of Shoreditch. But it was our brilliant chefs who made the jubilee for us!!  They went wild on … Continue reading

Victoria Sponge (Best of British!)

Victoria Sponge (Best of British!)

Victoria Sponges are always the perfect thing to make for a tea with friends and family.  For some reason, you get massive amounts of respect when you bake your own cake (people think you’re doing the ‘undo-able’), and we reckon that this is definitely something you should cash in on, if you’re someone who enjoys … Continue reading

Queen of Puddings (Best of British!)

Queen of Puddings (Best of British!)

Queen of Puddings is a quintessentially English milk pudding.  Perfect for any occasion, it’s easy to make, and looks pretty awesome if you do it well. History of Queen of Puddings: Well…strangely enough, this pudding wasn’t in fact invented for the Queen.  A very similar pudding, Monmouth Pudding, was first cooked in the seventeenth century, … Continue reading

Happy National BBQ Week!

Happy National BBQ Week!

Timing is everything; everybody knows that.

Well that’s exactly what he’s done.  It’s sunny, beautiful, hot, and people are happy.  Enter: barbecue.  You’ve probably all spent the entire weekend … Continue reading

Summer Goes To Our Heads…

Summer Goes To Our Heads…

Summer has officially hit, and we’re a bit overwhelmed by it all here in Housebites HQ.  We’ve found ourselves replacing our usual ‘coffee runs’ for ‘ice cream runs’, gazing out of the window at the blue sky we thought only existed in Fairy Tales, and generally feeling a bit light-headed and giggly. But it’s OK: our … Continue reading
