My love affair with Gousto

So. I love food, you guys.

I love to satisfy my tastebuds with good food and I also love to cook. I am no Martha Stewart or anything and I’m definitely no food competition material but I can make a nice-tasting plate of food and I have never received any complaints from any one that has tasted my food.

So, I always love to follow recipes and I love to try new things. This is where Gousto comes in. I found out about Gousto a couple of months ago and so far, I have ordered two amazing boxes from them. Gousto makes cooking so fun as it comes with the ingredients and recipes to help cook in the kitchen. All you have to do is to go on the website, look through the menu and select the recipes you want and it will be delivered to your door.

I wanted to share pictures of the box with you guys so that you can understand how it comes. It is packaged very nicely and you feel like you are receiving a present when you get it.


In following the recipe cards, I was able to create two amazing dishes from it. I’ll be honest, I also added my own personal spices to the food just because I am used to putting them in everything and I found that the recipes allow you to make your own alterations where need be. Also, in some of the recipe cards, there are certain ingredients that you would have to provide yourself but they are usually things that you would find at home. For example, one of the recipes called for sugar which they didn’t provide but I had at home, so I just wanted to make you guys aware of that. Anyway, you would see it what is needed when you are getting your recipes on the website.

So, these were the dishes I was able to make. (P.S. Please forgive my pictures. I’m not the best photographer)

  1. Asian, Hoisin Meatballs, Sesame Cabbage: This was super easy to make and I really enjoyed it.IMG_0107
  2. Bacon & Courgette One Pot Pasta: Guys, I have to tell you, this dish was so delicious. I love pasta and noodles on any given day and the ability to make something different was one that I was very willing to take. I loved every part of it and it made my evening. 


Anyway, I just wanted to share this with you guys because as a food lover, I have really enjoyed using this and Gousto is totally nice because they always call to see how they can be better and how they can satisfy me as a customer.

I hope I was able to convince you to get a Gousto box but if you need more ginger, :), I can get you 50% off your first box. You would also be doing me a favour because if you use my link, I can get £15 off as well. This is the link:

So, let me know what you think.

Later, darlings . ❤





Homemade Cheesy Hot Dogs

Okay, so I decided to share a recipe with you guys today. I have been making these hot dogs for a couple of months now. It is a lazy meal to make. I make them when I am extremely hungry but I don’t feel like cooking. I’m no Martha Stewart but I can figure my way around a kitchen. I hope you like it because I like it a lot and you can get everything you need for about £5 so it’s cost-efficient also. Anyway, let’s get into this shall we.

You will need:

. Hot dog Rolls

. Frankfurters

. Butter

. Onion

. Grated cheese

. Salt/Maggi



What You Need To Do

  1. Grill the frankfurters in your oven for about 4-5 minutes depending on how hot it is. When this done, remove and place on a plate.
  2. While grilling your frankfurters, slice the onions on a chopping board.
  3. Place a frying pan on the cooker and set it to medium heat.
  4. Put a tablespoon of butter in the pan until it melts and add the sliced onions to it.
  5. Sprinkle a cube of maggi or a pinch of salt on the onions and also sprinkle some pepper.
  6. Sauteé the onions for about two minutes or until the onions are soft.
  7. Heat the oven to about 180 degrees or higher if you want it done faster.
  8. Slice the hot dog rolls open and spread a little butter in them. Place the frankfurters in the hot dog rolls. Add some of the onions and sprinkle some of the grated cheese on top.
  9. Put the hot dogs into the oven for about 5 minutes to allow the cheese to melt and to make the hot dog rolls toastier. Lol if that’s a word.
  10. Enjoy!



Okay, so I realise that this is not the best recipe in the world; it’s kind of an amateur recipe but I’m sure you guys get the gist. This is not a healthy meal. Lol. It is greasy and fatty but it’s also so delicious. If you have any questions about it, you can ask me in the comments.

Love you all. 🙂
