‘The’ Oat & Raisin Cookies

Possibly the greatest cookie recipe of all time. Yes, that’s a big statement… Mumma and I made these cookies a while back and I remember wondering why we’d ever pick oat and raisin cookies over chocolate. Usually I found oat and raisin cookies dry and pretty tough, so I was sceptical. But, I love baking […]

A Weekend in Paris

Paris has won my heart – what a beautiful city! G and I planned a surprise trip for his mum’s birthday and it was just the most perfect long weekend away. We started with prosecco on the Eurostar, strawberries and pastries, before hopping off 2 hours later to beautiful sunshine at Gard du Nord. As […]

Brunch is one of G and I’s favourite meals and whilst training for our Half Marathon we have been getting up early to go to the gym or completing a long run on our weekend mornings. When we are back we want nothing more than a scrumptious and filling brekky to fuel us up for […]

The Spa at the Intercontinental

Not everyone can be 100% all of the time and that is most definitely okay – you just need to recognise when you need a little TLC.

Courgette & Lentil ‘Veggie-Balls’

Eating and experimenting with vegetarian food in January really did get me excited to come home every day to try something new. So, I’ve continued doing just that since the month ended. Now, no longer do I panic buy dinner in the evening and end up with something unimaginative or bland – instead I’m making […]

Pesto Tortilla Pizza with Spinach, Onion and Feta

Eating healthily for me, doesn’t mean banning carbs or never enjoying treats, it’s all about balance. Balance is a word thrown around all over the place and of course, it means different things to everyone. For me, all my meals (I would say 99% of them) are fresh and fully homemade – none of this […]

Satay Sweet Potato and Kale Curry

So, veggie eating is going well and quite frankly I don’t want the month to end because I’m loving it so much. I’ve tried some incredible recipes and not craved meat or fish once! I’m hoping to gradually share all the fantastically yummy food that I’ve created or made with you over the next few […]
