Lets be honest, pancakes aren’t a particularly difficult-to-make delicacy are they? Once you’ve mastered the flip, you’re pretty much a Liam Neeson of the kitchen, just with more pancakes and fewer guns. Sometimes, I like to imagine I’m of the same calibre as Mr Neeson by spinning the pan during a flip reciting the words “I will make you… and I will flip you“; maybe I’m just weird. Don’t judge me.

As if a pink jar of iced-cream-booze wasn’t enough to crash all of Instagram’s servers on Valentines day, behold the “gourmet steak sandwich”. I have my friend Gus to thank for the inspiration for this one. Him and his girlfriend celebrate valentines day by making steak sandwiches and it occurred to me; they had it right all along.

Valentines Day Raspberry Ripple & Disaronno Floats

Celebration, Cocktails, Drinks, Evening, Iced Cream, Party Food, Strawberries, Valentines Day

Nothing screams love like a vibrant cocktail of Disaronno, iced cream and pink lemonade;  A play on the typical ice cream float to send your dream-boat wild, a dreamfloat if you will. Okay I’ll stop –  They’re a treat at the best of times, but throw in a little bit of booze (or a lot) and some strawberries and you’re more than likely going to be the best boyfriend EVER. EVER.

Today is Australia day. The day that the guys from down under celebrate us Brits storming over there in our ships in 1788 by consuming a considerable amount of cake covered in chocolate and coconut and most likely a bag of goon to honour the celebration. If that is enough to send you softly into a food induced coma, then don’t forget to blow up your goon-bag before you topple over so you have a delicious, wine-flavoured pillow to fall asleep on.
