Roasted Rosemary And Garilic Wedges ♥

Hello my glamorous friends happy Tuesday ! Have you fancied making your own wedges and don't know how ? Well do not fear Chyna is here ! ( that's sounds cheesy but you get the idea) . Just to let you know you kitchen will smell of rosemary heven while the seasoned potatoes are in the oven . This is a healthier snack because the wedges are baked not fried also I mention how crispy they are when first bit into them . So I hope you enjoy this recipe guys ..... 

Serves 4


Ingredients:4 Large Yukon Gold Potatoes, washed and dried2 Tbsp Chopped Fresh Rosemary5 Cloves of Garlic, whole in their skin2 Tbsp Granulated Garlic Salt and Pepper (to taste)3 Tbsp Olive Oil

METHOD ,       

1) Preheat oven to 450 degrees and place a large non stick baking sheet into the oven to get extremely hot (this is so that potatoes wont stick and they get very crispy)

2) Place all the ingredients except potatoes into a large zip lock bag and toss to mix.

3) Cut each potato into 8 wedges and place them on a microwave safe plate and microwave for 5 minutes.

4) Once the potatoes come out of the microwave place them in the zip lock bag with the rosemary mixture and let stand for 10 minutes so that the warm potatoes can absorb all the flavour of the garlic, rosemary and olive oil.

5) Roast potatoes for 30 minutes or until crispy golden brown, turning them
once after 15 minutes so that both sides get crispy golden brown. Now that's what I call  yummm!!
How Crispy Do You Like Your Wedges ?

I Can Hear The Bells ♥

Hello my glamorous friends I hope you are well and how was your Easter break or spring break ? I would love know what you go up to . As it is wedding season I thought it would be a great idea to show you some simple looks that you can achieve . And did I mention all the dresses shown are under £30 .

All the dress mentioned are from new look .

The black jumpsuit : wearing all black as an automatic sophisticated vibe to any outfit . It also gives you huge opportunity to play and explore with types of jewellery and think about it with a jumpsuit you don't  have to worry about the top and bottoms because that is done for you .

Coral dress : This is an off the shoulder dress which adds an flirty ambiance and you will be having all the heads turning in addition the is a light shade so this means it will work well with any skin tone . Lighter shades are in because of the transition into summer  .

  Floral dress : this dress is perfect for the summer due to its colour and prints Because , of the prints on the dress I would recommend sticking to a simple coloured heels , flats or sandals . I would this dress has a flirty sense to it as well due to its key hole at the front of the dress  .

Lace dress : Now this one right here has to be my favourite one . This dress exhibits sexier side due to the lace detail at the front and also gives it a delicate touch as well. The colours shown on the dress give an wide range of colours to explore with shoes .

What is your favourite outfit ?
