We’re Back…New Look Boiled Eggs & Soldiers



Hello, we’re back!  Did you miss us?  Well, actually it’s still just me but the new site is all ready to grow.

What’s new you ask?  Please have a poke around and I’d really love your feedback as it’s not too late for changes. But just briefly you will find:

New Home Page

A little bit busier but there’s just so much I want to share!  The latest posts will appear on the home page plus I now have the ability to host ads in the sidebar.  If you are interested in working with me or having an ad on BE&S please take a look here, some free spots for new bloggers because, you know, it’s good to share the love.



New Recipe Menus

In the few months that BE&S has been going we seem to have amassed quite a few recipes (sorry about the really dodgy photo’s on my first ones!).  To make the recipes easier to find we (and in this case that means the clever ladies at Castle Designs as I have no idea how to do it!) have rearranged the menu into a “tile” format so it’s easier to look for the category you are after.  In addition, we’ve set up a separate Thermomix page so you can go straight there if that’s what you like (still loading some of these recipes so bear with me).

The Weekly Meal Planner has stayed the same and there is a printable blank shopping list for you because we like free printables around here.  Every Friday the meal planner is updated for the following week so that you can do shopping and a cook up if necessary over the weekend.  The meal plan also goes out in the weekly newsletter that I would love you to sign up to if you haven’t already.  Just on that…

Weekly Newsletter

Every Friday I send out a newsletter with links to the top posts from the week, some link love to things I think might be of interest to you and the weekly meal plan.  Signing up is as easy as filling in your email in the sign up bar on the right of this page.  If you want to check any past newsletters out they are all listed here.  Anyway, please subscribe (it’s free) and then you will never miss out on an update.


What’s for Dinner tonight? Linky Party

This is a brand new page that I’m hoping will become a “thing” because we can all do with help in finding answers to that dreaded question can’t we?  I will announce this properly via a separate post but basically it’s a weekly linky party where bloggers can post recipes for meals that can be made in under 30 minutes. I’m hoping this will be a great way to access some new recipes and maybe find some new blogs to like at the same time.

The actual Blog

contactpageIf you want to find out more about the horse riding soldiers and castle take a look here...cute huh?

So everything under “Blog” will also appear on the home page but for your reading ease we’ve put some “blog categories” in which are not just food related.  There’s Book Club which is really just sharing what my actual book club is reading (apart from wine labels) and what we ate when we met up, Cook Book & Foodie Blogs which is some reviews and link love, Guest Posts & Interviews (self explanatory but hoping to bring you lots more this year), Parties (for little & big kids) most recently my 8 year old daughters and her sisters Frozen one before that, due for a grown up one I think! Link Ups all the ones I like to contribute too and some that you might like,  Reviews (products, services etc), Free Printables (will be building on this) and finally…This, That & a bit of Chat for everything else!

Contact page well no change here but if you’d like to get in contact you can do it through this page and the last one on the list is “Shop” because one day but not quite yet I’d like to have one.

A massive thanks to Castle Design who have helped me through this and put up with my questions and changes and produced the new look BE&S!

I’d love your feedback so please feel free to stop by and make a comment.
