(Ad - Gifted) The 2021 Dairy Diary and A Zest For Life cookbook! - Review!

Christmas will be here before we know it. This year is flying over and I have been thinking about gifts for people and for myself too and I feel so lucky that I have been sent things to feature on my blog. Recently I was sent a couple of products from Dairy Diary to have a look at, I think they would make fantastic gifts . 

A Zest For Life cookbook and the 2021 Dairy Diary

Featuring 79 tasty recipes to put a spring in your step including a selection of bountiful breakfasts, packed lunches, afternoon snacks, weekday meals and weekend specials.

I skimmed through the book and my mouth was watering the recipes and food all looks so good. All the ingredients seem to be easy to come by too which is a big bonus. A couple of tge recipes really caught my eye. The spiced sweet potato soup and the mango and cranberry bread pudding. I can see me making those soon.

A Zest For Life will make eating well effortless. Packed full of colourful, energising recipes, made with ingredients that taste great and also help you to feel great!

Including dishes suitable for vegetarians and vegans as well as meat dishes this is a great cookbook and only costs £9.99 which I think is a great price.

The one thing I love about the new year is getting a new diary and the Dairy Diary is a fantastic one! It's not only looks pretty but it is full of useful information, budgeting pages, 
inspirational articles for home and garden and recipes too!

The 2021 Dairy Diary

The Dairy Diary is an A5 diary with a clear week-to-view layout and lots of space to write important dates and notes. Each week there is a new recipe including seasonal one's for Easter, Christmas and New Year. There is also a sheet of stickers to make the really important dates stand out which really made me smile. I do love a sticker.

Did you know the Dairy Diary has been sold by milkmen and women for the past 39 years and it continues to grow from strength to strength as more people join the millions who choose to have their milk delivered in glass bottles which is a greener alternative to plastic! My dad was a milk man 39 years ago and he can remember selling them. I am sure I must have seen them when I was a child too.

The Dairy Diary costs £8.85 which I think is a good price for a diary of this quality and considering it's practically a cookbook too, it's a bargain!

I was sent the 2021 Dairy Diary and A Zest For Life cookbook free of charge in exchange for this blog post.


  1. Love the look of that soup recipe!

  2. I like the look of these! I tend to bake lots over the winter months so it would be ideal for inspiration. The diary looks fab too, we could all do with planning something nice, hopefully for a better year to come. x

  3. My friend brought me a Dairy Diary for Christmas in 1988 and I loved it so much I bought one myself (off the milkman) for another 9 years. I still have them in a box in my wardrobe. I think I need the zest for life cookbook, I never know what to have for lunch. x
