Mrs Harrisons Scones and Jam

There is nothing better than visiting friends and coming home with a bag of home made treats, our bag contained fruit scones and Raspberry Jam.

The Scones were Mrs Harrisons first attempt at Scone making since being a youngster and as a seasoned scone maker I have to admit they were pretty amazing and I’m speaking as someone who really doesn’t like fruit scones.

How appetising does this look!  The Jam was also home-made, quite tart just how we like it.

I love giving and receiving home made treats and I really think we should do it more often, what sort of treats do you give or receive?



If you are a regular reader of my blog you will be aware that I am greedy, very greedy, I live breathe and eat food in all forms so you can imagine my delight when browsing a local based artisan online store when I came across a subscription box for food lovers!

If you read my lifestyle blog Madame G’s Lifestyle you will know that I subscribe to a variety of beauty boxes, each month is like your birthday when a box of treats arrives, makeup you can put on your face which is all well and good but food is where its at at this box had me squealing with delight!

A couple of days after ordering, my first box arrived on my doorstep (pictured above) There was a personalised envelope which contained information about the brands in my box.

Davenport’s Chocolates were the first item to be pulled out.  I’ve never tried anything from this brand before but I have heard a lot of good things so I can’t wait to get stuck in!

Next out was tea from The Teashed, I adore the packaging of these teabags, no boring boxes here!

I adore Ras-E-Hanout so was over the moon to pull out a very large packet of it!

Can you honestly think of anything better than Toffee Apple Jam?  I can’t actually wait to open this, I have so many ideas of how to use it!

Finally a bottle of rosemary infused rapeseed oil.

I am so happy with this box of treats, I can’t actually wait for next month!

If you want to try a box for yourself there are a couple of options, £19.95 gets you a monthly subscription, you can cancel at any time and £99 gets you a six month subscription making the boxes work out at £16.50 per box.
