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.  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 Rafflecopter below!

  • Laura

    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!

  • Ruth Harwood

    My mum used to have one every year! I still have a cookbook she bought me connected to them!

    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 !

  • Sarah Cooper

    I remember my mum having one every year, I often used to write little stories in there for her.

  • Jo Carroll

    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.

  • laura banks

    getting it delivered near christmas by the milkman and then making sure to put my birthday in it for my mum lol

    I remember it from when I was growing up! Mum had a couple of copies which I used to read.

    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!

  • Miss Tracy Hanson

    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. 🙂

  • Christine Sunter

    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!

  • Judith Allen

    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.

  • Lindy Hine

    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!

  • Laura Harrison

    I would love this to inspire me to cook more and also to organise myself as well. Thank you for the chance xx

  • Victoria Prince

    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 🙂 I also found the measurements chart in them invaluable!

  • Emma Whittaker

    I have never had a Dairy Diary but lools fantastic and love the idea of the recipe book 🙂

    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.

    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!

  • Patricia Avery

    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 🙂

  • Jean Vaughan

    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.

  • Emma Price

    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 🙂

    My granny was an amazing baker and often used the dairy cookbook for inspiration
