‘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 […]

Super Healthy Salmon Burgers

Most food I eat is vegetarian or vegan, not because I am either of those things but because I love that type of food – give me falafel, aubergine or tofu annnnyyyy day of the week. But veggie stuff aside, my favourite protein to eat is fish, more specifically salmon. Not sure whether it is […]

Puerto de Rico Gran Canaria

With September now in full swing and the shops being fully stocked in autumn knitwear, fluffy coats and cashmere scarves, Summer 2018 is officially over. And while that doesn’t mean the holidaying is necessarily at its end too (I have a break away next week aghhhh!) I hope we can all look back at the […]

Chermoula Spiced Halloumi with Bulgur, Quinoa and Chickpea Tabbouleh

Are you victim to making batch pasta dishes and eating it 4 days in a row? Bored of the same old recipes every week? Not in the mood to cook a fresh meal from scratch when you get home from work? I may have the answer… When G and I visited Balance Festival in May […]
