The Book of Everyone

I was really excited to be asked to review The Book of Everyone. I decided to make one for my dad as a Christmas present...

The Book of Kevin

The Book of Everyone make personalised books suitable as Birthday, Christmas, Valentine's, Mother's / Father's Day and general keepsake presents. You can check out the full range HERE. As Christmas is almost upon us I went for the festive option. The turnaround time was great; I ordered on November 27th and my book arrived on December 5th. I'm so impressed with it. The print quality and binding are excellent, the customer service was brill, and the trivia included is genuinely interesting. My favourite is the fact that my dad shares 45% of his DNA with a brussel sprout. :)

The website is incredibly easy to use. You begin by filling in a short 'who's it for?' form with name, gender and date of birth details. Next you input who the book is from, and their relationship to the recipient. Then the fun part begins! The basic default settings are awesome - the design team has done a fantastic job - with pages telling you things like what the top TV show was in the year of their birth, and even the most popular type of facial hair. There are still loads of opportunities to put your own stamp on the book though. For some pages this might just mean picking from a selection of colours or backgrounds, like the page pictured above, while others give you the option to upload your own photographs and add your own text. On the page below you could change the headline, and add your own photo. I chose one of my dad back in his teens:

I love personalised gifts and highly recommend The Book of Everyone. If you want to get one of your own, the books come in digital (£7.50), soft cover (£19.50), hard cover (£29.50), or deluxe (£49.50) formats. The latter three options also include a free digital version which is a really nice touch.

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
