 Annette's websites of the week website hosting National Sausage Week is a dedicated online community for foodies who enjoy great quality pork produce.

In the midst of Sausage Week the site is heavily focused around great British bangers featuring an endless variety of recipes, which display the diversity that sausages have in cooking. Like most, I instantly think of creating bangers and mash, sausage sandwiches or toad in the hole.

However, Love Pork has come up with some really exciting recipes from an Asian inspired sausage salad to sausage Paella creating a whole new take on sausages.

Further to its great recipe collection Love Pork genuinely knows lots about pork and how to make it a wonderful ingredient, which is delicious to eat and a healthy option. Featuring video tutorials, the site uses experts to tell you all about they’re take on pork, what they use it for and even how to make sausages from scratch.

Learn more about pork and how best to cook it!

Most impressively ‘The Prime Cuts’, an interactive display featured on the site illustrates each cut of pork and which part of the pig it comes from. Detailing the best ways to cook and prepare specific cuts with videos. This is particularly insightful, especially if you’re looking to explore different (maybe more affordable) cuts of meat.

Kirstie’s Handmade Britain- Yesterday I wrote about Kirstie Allsopp’s new TV show ‘Kirstie’s Handmade Britain’ which explores the world of craft making- an instant favourite of mine.

As a craft lover I’ve really enjoyed looking through the site as most impressively its features video tutorials and step by step guides on each craft. Perfect if you’ve seen something on the show which you’d quite like to have a go at, at home.

Additionally including recipes from Kirstie’s baking episode which is always a sure hit with me. The site also lists craft exhibitions, fairs and country shows here in the UK where people can enter their work into shows, and has a great selection of craft courses to inspire crafty people like myself to go and learn something new!

Overall a really great site to get lots of inspiration from, at least until the next episode!

Country Life- Recently Country Life, the publication which encompasses rural live, has joined the campaign to save Sealyham Terriers from excitation.

COuntry LifeAs an animal lover I feel strongly about ensuring that Sealyhams remain a breed which can bring pleasure and joy to families and this is why I’m happy that Country Life has chosen to celebrate Sealyhams with a front cover story and feature both in print and online.

Although I do read the magazine I hadn’t visited Country Life’s online counterpart until this week. I have to say that it’s a lovely site featuring all of the things which you’d expect- luxurious country properties which are exquisite, property news, country news, gardening tips, books reviews, fine arts, culture and delicious wholesome recipes.

A great alternative to the magazine- I’ll be returning for an easy read every so often.
