Cooking With Nicky

Cooking With Nicky



We’re delighted to announce our new partnership with foodie blogger Nicky! All the way from the Kitchen Sanctuary blog, each week, Nicky will be cooking up easy recipes and sharing foodie cleaning hacks on our social media channels.

In each video, Nicky will take you step by step through the recipes, providing tips and advice
on how to make food taste delicious without spending hours in the kitchen. We know that busy people don’t always have the time to cook up a complicated recipes so we want to bring easy meals and hacks right to your kitchen table.

Nicky is a 36 year old wife and mum of two, who in her own words is ‘a firm believer in sitting the family down at the table as often as possible for a nice home cooked meal and a catch-up on the day’. She is a self confessed food magazine and recipe book addict (a girl after our own heart) and has created some mouth watering recipes for us to enjoy and help clean up afterwards!
