Actor Discount Codes

Hey, let’s face it all performers need to save cash…

I love hunting down discount codes. I will add them as I find them

I just saved a ton (30%) with IMDbPro with this code for SAG-Aftra members: SAGAFTRAdiscount — You can too!

As a performer we have to keep our skin healthy. Personally I like a few products at L’occitane. If you want to save a couple bucks, use this link to get $20 off your purchase

Audible – how to get free books

If you ever wanted to try a service like audible you may have been put off by the commitment. Let’s face it. Who wants to commit to something you may not enjoy. Or maybe you’re on a budget, and you’re trying to make the pennies stretch. Well, there is a way to get free audiobooks. Here’s how:

If you just want to try one out Audible and many audiobook publishers will give you a free book – once. Yes. If you have never actually listened to an audiobook and want to try it out this is a great way to start. Click here for a free trial.

However, say you already have a membership and you want to listen to a new book, but you’re out of credits? Well, hundreds of independent authors publish on Audible. They often are able to give a free copy to folks open to reviewing the book after. Yes, you have to take a few minutes after you have listened to review it, but nine times out of ten, it’s well worth it.

If you are interested in reviewing, contact me below and I will send you a coupon for a free audiobook.

Currently, I have Short Stories and Romance Novels available:

“h’Auntie’s” Jamaican Ginger Cake

Well as you well know, my family is Jamaican and there is nothing like a sit-down, a little ginger cake and a cup of tea, to bring my world into harmony. (How colonial British can you get!?)

So I made this cake for my family this Christmas and it was a hit. I think I will be making another soon, and freezing a couple for quick afternoon treats. Nothing like it when it’s raining and all you want is a little Jamaican heat and sunshine!

Jamaican Ginger Cake Recipe:

Ingredients

(This all American measurements…)

2 cups plain flour

1 tsp ground ginger

1″ stem ginger

1½ tsp ground cinnamon

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

1/8 tsp of ground cloves

1/8 tsp of ground allspice

3/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda

5 tbsp milk

1/2 cup & 1 tbsp butter (Best with butter, but you can also use coconut oil)

1/3 cup & 1 tbsp black treacle

1/3 cup & 1 tbsp golden syrup

1/4 loosely packed cup dark soft brown sugar (or muscavado sugar or coconut sugar)

1/2 cup water

2 eggs, lightly beaten

Method:

Preheat the oven to 325°F

Grease a large loaf tin with butter or hard margarine. Line the tin (both the bottom and sides) with baking parchment. Butter parchment also.

In a large bowl sift together the flour, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground allspice, ground cloves and ground nutmeg.

In a small bowl mix together the bicarbonate of soda and the milk.

Chop the stem ginger – I use an immersion blender attachment, but this can be done by hand.

In a medium saucepan, melt and mix together the butter, black treacle, golden syrup, sugar, chopped stem ginger and water. Do not let the mixture boil. allow to cool for a few minutes.

Using the paddle attachment in your mixer set to low speed (or a wooden spoon by hand) add the melted syrup mix to the flour and spices and stir in well.

Mix in the eggs a little at a time until combined.

Please note all these stages look a bit dodgy, but keep to the recipe and all will be fine.

Then add the milk & bicarb mix, and stir this in as well.

Pour the mixture into the tin.

Bake in the center rack for about 1 hr 15 mins – 1 hr 45 mins. Test with a toothpick for a light crumb bake.

 

Cool the cake in the tin for a few minutes, then remove and cool on a wire rack.
