Remember when I went to Glastonbury and I said it was the best festival ever. I may have to retract my statement. I went to Green Man Festival last weekend and my opinion has changed. It was magical. The best festival I have been to hands down. It was so super chilled out. I can only describe it in short sentences. In fact my words will not do it justice at all! It had the same sort of happy atmosphere as Glastonbury but on a much smaller scale. No having to rush from one tent to another because they were all so close. No big crowds to push your way through. And the weather! We were so darn lucky. It was forecast to rain everyday but all we got was a few little drizzles. It was glorious! I am currently listening to Tom Ravenscroft radio show live from Green Man on 6music and a woman on it just said "It's a dream". I couldn't've said it better myself!

I may have mentioned this before but I do love a good picnic. What more can you want from your summer than to lie in the sun, eating and listening to music? I therefore decided I wanted to make July picnic month on this here KB.eats! I recently purchased (and by I, I mean Mother) a coupla new mini cake trays, one rectangular and one for sandwich cakes, so I thought mini cakes would be a great place to start for the picnic recipes! Oh yeah this is a 2 in 1 recipe post! That's right, two recipes in one post, OUTRAGEOUS!
Now I can hear the uproar building in the distance already as there is cream on the cakes and we all know cream isn't really that picnic friendly. Fear not, cream is not essential for either of the cakes, it just makes for a nice indulgent treat if you are perhaps having the picnic at home or having a garden party of sorts.
I just realised I haven't told you guys a joke in a while...
Do you know any sodium jokes?

Hello, I am Karishma, qualified Speech and Language Therapist!! Yes that's right, I did it! Those long looong days spent sat at my desk, cramming as much information as possible into my already full brain, seemed to have paid off! And what a relief it is. Now I can actually enjoy my summer without waking up from dreams in which I find out I have failed! The funny thing is, I don't actually want to get a job now though. I want to put it off for as long as possible. You could say I don't want to face being "an adult" in the "real world". Alternatively, you could also say I am lazy. Either way you would be a little bit right! I just think I should enjoy being able to do nothing whilst I can, because before I know it my holidays will be limited to 20 days a year or whatever it is. See I don't even know how much time off I should expect to get when I enter the dreaded "real world"!

The phrase "better late than never" could not be more fitting. Way back at the end of April, I was invited to an event at Neff by Appliances Online; #AOCooks. The event was called Afternoon Tea Delights, and Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite was the delightful host for the afternoon.
I arrived at the Neff showroom and joined the other bloggers who were being shown all the amazing products Neff has to offer, including their innovative Slide & Hide oven. More about that later. After we had our fill of gazing longly at cookers, imaging how good they'd look in our dream kitchens, we were taken to a presentation room where we were given a small talk on the history of Neff and Appliances Online. For those of you who don't know, Appliances Online is an online retailer for electrical appliances, whose customer service is highly rated! Check out their blog to find out more about the afternoon and what the company do!
