Graze Me Up Afternoon Tea Box

When it comes to “grazing”, a few things spring to mind that make me feel very happy and content: sitting at a Spanish beachside bar eating tapas in the mid afternoon whilst soaking up some much needed Mediterranean vitamin D; making my way to the buffet for a second (maybe third, don’t judge) plateful atContinue reading “Graze Me Up Afternoon Tea Box”

Beyond Veganuary Evening

‘Veganuary’ seems to be the modern nickname given to the first month of the year thanks to the probable over indulgence that took place during the December festivities. We’ve all been there; numerous social occasions enjoying a glass (or bottle, oops) of prosecco, opening the mega sized tin of miniature chocolates a bit early andContinue reading “Beyond Veganuary Evening”

Chocolate and Hazelnut Protein Flapjacks

It’s that time again everyone! Oh yes! That time when my eyes cannot stay clear of the sad looking bananas in the supermarket that are crying out to be utilised in something sweet and yummy. If you’ve followed me for a while, you will know that means the ever faithful banana flapjacks! I can justContinue reading “Chocolate and Hazelnut Protein Flapjacks”

Korea Town Kitchen Seafood Experience

As is now pretty much always the case, it is a Wednesday morning on my day off from pub-restaurant life and my brain starts reminiscing over the memories of a gorgeous local takeaway meal that I unfortunately had to share with Rob, the Saturday evening before Christmas Day. Saturday is just the perfect night forContinue reading “Korea Town Kitchen Seafood Experience”

Fat Boy Fudge: The Mega Box

When it comes to the alphabet, many of my favourite words begin with the letter ‘F’: food (obviously); flannel I just think is hilarious; fcuk, for obvious reasons; and finally, fudge, but not for the initial sweet treat reason you may think. Many years ago as a freshly graduated student, I fell into a jobContinue reading “Fat Boy Fudge: The Mega Box”

One Tray Spiced Squash, Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

There’s nothing quite like starting the New Year, or any year in fact, with a huge, warming bowl of homemade soup. Normally because outside it is cold, wet, windy and just generally not very inviting; I am 100% a summer person! Another reason for wanting to put my face into a huge bowl of smoothContinue reading “One Tray Spiced Squash, Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup”

Bideford Christmas Food and Drink Festival

Of all the things that can give you a big nudge of festive spirit, a crisp morning at a Christmas market that is showcasing a plentiful amount of food and drink stalls is top of my list. I absolutely love a Christmas market! They make my stomach and liver as happy as a Christmas ElfContinue reading “Bideford Christmas Food and Drink Festival”

Candy’s Cuisine

When you think of the small, picturesque village of Appledore, what comes to mind? For me, it’s the stunning views over the estuary; the cobbled streets lined with colourful bunting; intricate crochet items hanging from the trees with pride; and who can forget the basically world famous clotted cream ice-cream (if you know, you know).Continue reading “Candy’s Cuisine”

The Seacliff Restaurant at Sandy Cove Hotel

I don’t know about you, but a typical Tuesday night never normally comprises of anything majorly exciting, does it? There might be a little exercise involved, followed by the never ending question of “what do you want for dinner?”, cooking said dinner after a lengthy decision making process, before getting comfy in front of theContinue reading “The Seacliff Restaurant at Sandy Cove Hotel”

Caramel and Pecan Banana Flapjack

Don’t panic everyone, I am still here! Very much alive and kicking and I do remember how to write. So, hello once again; long time no see! Or read? Anyway, amongst the radio silence on my little blog for a little while, my ever loved banana flapjacks made a comeback last week wearing a shinyContinue reading “Caramel and Pecan Banana Flapjack”
