Breakfast in your hotel room
Make sure the shower cap is fresh when preparing this delicious and healthy smart-start breakfast. Poaching the eggs in the kettle for about 3-5 minutes results in perfectly poached egg. Add a bit of olive oil into the shower cap or cling film before breaking the egg in for an easy transfer to your plate.
Hats off to Suzanne of The Travel Bunny who poached the most perfect egg of the day.
Lunch in your hotel room
Who doesn’t love a cheese toasty? This one is a real crowd-pleaser and it’s so simple to make. Let your cheese toasty imagination take over and include anything and everything left over from the breakfast buffet. Have fun!
Dinner in your hotel room
Turn up the romantic charm factor by cooking dinner in the room and dining by candlelight. Your hotels’ TV can provide romantic background music, which is sure to melt hearts just as this steak dinner will melt in your mouth.
Take your steak to the next level and adding a ginger soy mixture to the irons’ steamer to infuse your steak with flavor. Many thanks to Ashley of Amsterdam Blog for stepping in and cooking some tasty steaks!
Dessert in your hotel room
This dish is so easy you’ll want to take it home after check-out. Spoil your sweet tooth by adding in any one of the liqueurs offered in the mini-bar and topping with lots of pillow chocolates.
