WIN a Dairy Diary 2017!

We’ve teamed up with Dairy Diary to give away one of their fabulous 2017 Diaries, and The Dairy Diary Favourites Recipe Book!

Dairy Diary 2017

I’ve been a huge fan of Dairy Diary for several years, and I can’t emphasis enough how important my Dairy Diary is to ensure the smooth running of day-to-day family life! I love the space to write multiple activities or memories into each day, and the budgeting pages are fabulous if you want to see where your money is going each month! There are lots of useful information in the Dairy Diary, from washing tips to gardening tips!

The Dairy Diary has always been filled with recipes, from family favourites to seasonal goodies, each with easy to follow instructions! I still love this Halloween Easy Cake Pops recipe which I tried out back in 2013! This year Dairy Diary is celebrating 35 years, and has produced a wonderful book, Dairy Diary Favourites, containing one hundred favourite recipes taken from Dairy Diaries over the last decades. Nick Rowe, executive editor, said:

“The Dairy Diary has showcased over 2000 recipes since the first edition was published in 1982 so it would be impossible to recreate all of them in one book.”

Therefore, they’ve carefully selected one hundred of the best loved recipes, to share in one handy book. ย Whether you’re looking for a simple tea time treat or retro dinner, Dairy Diary Favourites is a definite go to recipe book!

To enter to win both books, follow the simple steps on Rafflecopterย below!

Good Luck!


  1. Laura says:

    Such wonderful memories of my mums Dairy Diary as a child – she used to slip extra recipe cut outs into it throughout the year and then every Boxing Day we would spend an hour or two going through the whole Diary transferring the good ones (and the ones originally in the diary) to a big recipe scrap book. She gave me one when I first left home, I must admit I wasn’t anywhere near as organised as she was!

  2. Kim Styles says:

    My mum always had the Dairy Diary every year -it was like her only little filofax- not only was it a diary but it held endless pieces of paper, for shopping lists ,hand written recipes and the weekly milk bill !

  3. James Harris says:

    I would like to win because I need to be more organised in 2017 and not forget as many things. A new diary will help me do that.

  4. Alison Johnson says:

    I have one which is from the 90’s I think! I love the recipes which you get in the diary whilst you are organising yourself.

  5. Kelly Ellen Hirst says:

    My mum always had a dairy diary. We found one from about 20 years ago & couldn’t help but laugh about the mundane tasks of the day she recorded in it

  6. Jo Carroll says:

    For some reason I’ve never owned a Dairy Diary…I’ve spotted them in the shops usually a few months before Xmas but someone usually gets me a diary or two for my birthday so I end up with what I’m given…they look full of great content though.

  7. Caroline H says:

    I remember that every year we used to buy one as a Christmas gift for my lovely great aunt Gloria. Great Uncle Robert always got a small bottle of Old Spice and in return we all got slippers. Every year!

  8. Miss Tracy Hanson says:

    My Grandma used to buy my Mum one every year until she sadly passed away. Brings back great memories, and we still have them as well, although they are a bit “worse for wear” now. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Christine Sunter says:

    When I was first married (over 30 years ago) I used to get the Dairy Diary from my Milkman. When he stopped delivering milk I stopped getting them – I loved the recipes and tips in there. If I don’t win I’ll have to see if someone will buy me one this Chrismas!

  10. Judith Allen says:

    I’ve never seen one before, but would love to see what one is like. I do wonder why my mum didn’t have them, it does seem like her kind of thing.

  11. laura bryant says:

    I remember my nan keeping the ones dates the year my brothers and sisters was born they where very sentimental to her before she died

  12. Jane Adair says:

    I’ve been using Dairy Diaries for as long as I can remember. My children and now my grand children have been raised on the recipes.

  13. Nuala Rees says:

    never had one but do think it could be useful also my memory is not good so want to be able to get some bits I need down

  14. Lindy Hine says:

    I love the Dairy Diary – I always get one and it just contains so much “stuff”. Huge amount of info about anything and everything under the Sun (and also the Phases of the moon actually!) . I love the pocket at the front where you can keep things that you really need not to lose, and the little reminder stickers. Great value too!

  15. Victoria Prince says:

    Oh I was brought up with them! My mum used to have one every year, and my overriding memory is making Victoria Sandwich Cakes using a Dairy Diary recipe ๐Ÿ™‚ I also found the measurements chart in them invaluable!

  16. Marina Owen says:

    My gran always bought this for my mum every Christmas. I remember as a child I loved looking through the diary at all the lovely recipes. I didn’t realise they were still going. I’d love to win one because it would bring loads of lovely memories flooding back to me.

  17. Susan B says:

    My memories are being on your mailing list, looking at your lovely products and entering your super competitions. No luck yet but I will keep trying as I appreciate quality.

  18. Pauline Dring says:

    I still have my out of date Dairy Diary as it has lots of info I need to keep in it. I always like to have one but rarely do!

  19. Patricia Avery says:

    I was bought the Dairy Book of Home Management for my first Xmas as a married woman. An absolute godsend for someone as clueless as me. Covered everything from cooking and gardening to papering and plumbing! So useful ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Jean Vaughan says:

    From the first year it was issued I bought my mum her dairy diary from the milkman- right up until she died and then, because it was part of our everyday life I continued buying it for myself. I have used and come to love many of the foolproof recipes and find the information pages invaluable. My Dairy Cookbook may be falling apart but it is still my most frequently used cookery book.

  21. Emma Price says:

    I remember my nan getting one every year when I was younger and the excitement of her trying out a new cake receipt from it ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. Sheila Reeves says:

    No memories of the Dairy diary, but I do remember my mums copy of the dairy cookbook, great for basics and a “go to” recipe book

  23. Adrian Bold says:

    I have actually never owned a Dairy Diary but after reading up on reviews I’d love to. My organisational AND cooking skills could use some help!
