Minted Lamb & Feta Burgers | Recipe

HelloFresh Lamb Feta Burger Done 090

So, this is a new type of post for me… moving scarily near to being a lifestyle blogger. Let me know if you hate it!

As you can see above, I cooked one of the recipes from my first HelloFresh box (read more about my new eating regime). This was my 2nd favourite recipe this week, biting at the heels of the Sea Bream.

So, without further ado, I’m going to very quickly give you the ingredients you need to cook this great and not-all-that-bad-for-you dish!

Serves 2:

1 Cup Onion (sliced)
1 Gem Lettuce
3 Radishes
3 Tbsps Spring Onions (chopped)
3 Tbsps Fresh Mint (chopped)
3 Tbsps Feta Cheese
200g Lamb Mince
2 Burger Buns

18. Toss in the mint

There you have it! Serve your burgers on their baps with the stewed onion and side salad. Enjoy.

How easy was that?!

My Top 5 Perfumes

Culturazzi Top 5 Perfumes 077

Christian Dior – Addict eau Fraiche
Marc Jacobs – Daisy
Marc Jacobs – Oh Lola
Diesel – Loverdose
Lancome – La Vie Est Belle

Just a quick one today – my top 5 perfumes this year.

I was lucky enough to get the bottle of Diesel free, and I really bloody like it! Normally I’d shy away from Diesel as I believe in beauty houses as opposed to fashion houses (what a snob) but this smells great; not too sweet.

Christian Dior is a favourite of mine, the classic Addict fragrance is one I’ve been wearing since I was 18 and the eau fraiche was an attempt at me moving away from it. But not very far.

The rest I’ve already covered – they’ve also got a lot of press and rightly so!

What’s your signature scent?

Hello Fresh: A New Eating Regime

HelloFresh Welcome Booklet 084

Me and my man have been struggling recently. We are both (now) busy people, him with a successful web agency (no, he didn’t design this site, jerk!) and me with a challenging new role at my current agency. We also live in the centre of a cosmopolitan city with a plethora of restaurants, cafes and, ruh-roh, takeaways. Add both of those together and you get our incredibly unhealthy eating habits which include being on first-name terms with certain pizza delivery drivers.

Bad, eh. Then the other day I saw something about HelloFresh, a service a bit like Graze except you get a box with 5 full-blown meals worth of food and recipes.

What really appealed to us though was the variety of food which was available in the box the week we signed up. Not only do we love food, we love trying new food and cooking fresh, healthy meals without the effort of 1. having to think of them and 2. having to get all the ingredients and 3. having to remember to cook it seemed too good to be true.

So we got our first box. And wow, are we impressed! We just made our first meal, a Tabbouleh salad (which looks to be the weakest choice, mainly because I’m not a Halloumi fan) and you can see the result below!

So we’re going to try this out – 5 meals for £50, all portion controlled, all fairly healthy, interesting and tasty. All the ingredients are delivered straight to our door from independent outlets which also appeals, I love supporting local business and the quality was way better than even Waitrose has been offering recently.

I got £20 off my first box – if you want £20 off yours too (and you can only have 1 box so no recurring contract) then use discount code AVRQ2B at checkout.
