Spiced Carrot Cake Porridge

Choosing your favourite flavour of cake is one of life’s tough decisions, and is a decision I rarely make or can give a definitive answer to, mainly because it changes daily! But saying that, carrot cake is always one of my top cake choices with its cinnamon/mixed spice aroma, abundance of veg filled sponge, hopefullyContinue reading “Spiced Carrot Cake Porridge”

The Bake & Brew Loaded Brownie Box: The Movie

“If you’re passing through anytime soon, I’ll sort you out a brownie box”. *Runs straight to my car and starts the engine to immediately make a special trip for a box of chocolate heaven from the Bake and Brew headquarters itself*. That second part is, unfortunately, not true, even though in my head it wasContinue reading “The Bake & Brew Loaded Brownie Box: The Movie”

Spiced Banana Pancakes with Chocolate, Yoghurt, Strawberries, Walnuts and Honey

It is Monday morning and my bathroom is finally being ripped out; so-long blue tiles and shower head that is just slightly too short for my height! Amongst the smashing of tiles, the yellow and slightly spotty view of three bananas, calling out to be transformed into something tasty before it is too late (theContinue reading “Spiced Banana Pancakes with Chocolate, Yoghurt, Strawberries, Walnuts and Honey”

Peanut Butter, Banana and Chocolate Flapjack

There are two things in life I am a little obsessed by. One: peanut butter. Two: not wasting overripe bananas. Hang on, make that three things. Three: the amazing sweet and savoury combination of peanut butter AND banana! It is just so damn good! Unless you are my father-in-law who hates this combo and justContinue reading “Peanut Butter, Banana and Chocolate Flapjack”

Breakfast For Lunch & Take Away Cake: Market Street Kitchen, Appledore

Anyone ever been to the same quaint cafe twice within approximately 24 hours? No, me neither. However, I did just see a pig fly over my house and my nose seems to have grown suddenly since I started typing on this damp and grey Wednesday afternoon. Eating out is such a joy, especially with closeContinue reading “Breakfast For Lunch & Take Away Cake: Market Street Kitchen, Appledore”

That Crust: The Appledore Bakery Sourdough Boule

Picture the scene. Morning has broke. Outside of your four walls you can hear the gentle trickle of rain falling from grey clouds (probably no surprise in the UK lets be honest). The streak of light squeezing through the gap in your black out curtains (best purchase ever) awakens your brain to the fact youContinue reading “That Crust: The Appledore Bakery Sourdough Boule”

“I Sure Love A Good Selfie…”: Bake & Brew Mix Box, August 2020

If you are local to North Devon, or love a visit to us (because why wouldn’t you), you will probably of heard of the now baking legends that are Bake & Brew. Or, maybe you have seen them over the years without even knowing, on the beautiful Tarka Trail with their trike, an array ofContinue reading ““I Sure Love A Good Selfie…”: Bake & Brew Mix Box, August 2020″

Pizza Is Life, And So Are Friends: The Pig On The Beach, August 2020

If you found yourself in that desert island scenario, and you were only allowed to eat one thing, what would it be? Mine would probably be pizza. God I love pizza. Even just thinking about pizza, or someone suggesting the potential for pizza, gets me excited. How can such a simple concept have so manyContinue reading “Pizza Is Life, And So Are Friends: The Pig On The Beach, August 2020”

“Sauce on the side please”: Instow Arms, August 2020.

First off, I have a confession to make. My plan was to use a few hours yesterday morning, post meal, to write all about it. *Checks phone for the time*. 10:27am. *Almost falls out of bed*. Two hours before meeting a friend for lunch (two meals out in 24 hours; reminds you of that busContinue reading ““Sauce on the side please”: Instow Arms, August 2020.”

Deep Fried Oyster…Twice

So apparently, according to a popular weekday morning lifestyle TV programme (bet you can’t guess which one I am talking about), yesterday was national oyster day, who knew! I didn’t! But is anyone surprised as there seems to be a national day for everything now. Doughnut day and peanut butter day are my particular favourites.Continue reading “Deep Fried Oyster…Twice”
