Envylope.  Our App.  Our Dream.  Our Reality.

Extremely Easy Baked Banana & Nutella

As you get busier you tend to cut some corners where food is concerned.  This is especially true when snacking.  So to make sure I don’t jump on the full-fatty-wagon,  I keep nuts and seeds nearby my computer.  For a dessert craving that is relatively healthy (as opposed to eating a banana split LOL) is this!  I’d love to take credit for this idea, but its not mine.  I came across it months ago on the internet (I’m not sure where, but the person put chocolate chips in the banana).  I put Nutella.  Not a big diff.  But just to be clear.  It’s a Nutella banana boat!  I’ve just bought Raw Peruvian Cacao Nibs that I will try putting instead.

  • 2 tbsp of Nutella

Method:

  • Slit the banana length wise in the middle.
  • Stuff with Nutella

Product Reviews By Bandhna Kaur

Since I enjoy reviewing latest gadgets and products I’ve decided to offer product reviews.  I’m looking for anything interesting and unique.  Things that are unique to the market.  I believe that every invention has an intelligent idea behind it.  Some of them work and some unfortunately do not pan out as well.  Some products just need to be discovered.  I love hidden gems that are waiting to be realised.

If you have a product you’re interested for me to give my thoughts on, get in touch with me!

Creamy Avocado and Corn Jacket Potato

I tried a healthy version of Jacket Potato – just because I absolutely love it but can’t afford to look like a big fat potato as a result.  This recipe is vegan and vegetarian friendly.  Easy to make and delish to eat!

I’ve been writing for Almonds and Raisins, a well-being site based in Thailand.  My recipe can be found there. Here’s a screen shot of the page!

Review: VonShef Stone Raclette Grill

I’ve recently bought the VonShef Stone Raclette Grill.  I was missing some grilled cheese from Switzerland.  I was there 2 years ago, the cheese is to die for.  I bought this grill to have an indoor BBQ as the weather in London is so unpredictable.  So just in case. I absolutely loved it (thought I’d give you my verdict first) 🙂

Here are pictures that prove that Vegetarians can have a great grill too!

You can’t go wrong with Quorn Sausages. You seriously can’t.

Cheese from heaven.  It just couldn’t get any better.

 

Here’s a breakdown of the VonShef Grill.  What I liked/disliked etc!

What we had for dinner from the grill:

  • Quorn Sausages with bread
  • Halloumi-Cherry Tomato Kebabs
  • Roasted Potatoes
  • Corn on the Cob
  • Grilled Asparagus
  • Grilled Peppers
  • Grilled Gruyere Cheese *to die for*

How to Use the Grill:

  • Pre-heat it for 20-25 mins
  • Brush oil on it lightly
  • Rub a bit of salt on the stone

What I liked about it:

  • Fun & Interactive Dinner
  • Easy to assemble
  • Healthy cooking option (minimal oil)
  • Grilled food is always yummy!

What I disliked about it:

  • You have to wait to wash up (I left it overnight, but some people say 3-4 hours is plenty)
  • Washing up by hand as opposed to a dishwasher
  • The wire for the cord is not long enough to use on the table – I got an external long adapter

TO BUY OR NOT TO BUY:  TO BUY.
