Meal Planning Monday - 30th September

So I have come to a decision. After 4 long months of over indulgence, undoing nearly all the hard work I put in earlier in the year, I have decided to get back to some semblance of healthy eating. Back to Weight Watchers, back to routine and control. No matter how much I love food it gets to the p…

A Day in The Life.

This week is National Eye Health Week, I know it seems like each week is a crazy different marketing thing... National Bacon Week, Doughnut Week, International Space Hopper Day etc... But when I was approached by Boots to post about National Eye Health Week I really liked the idea. Having your eye…

Meal Planning Monday - 16th September

Happy Monday! I am doing the rarest of things and posting twice in one day. This is not a usual occurrence for me but this week it is necessary as I didn't get my Great British Bake Off post written up in time to publish last week. Whoops! I still had my usual meal plan to do, so here I am, …

Great British Bake Off - Custard Tarts

Coconut Peach Melba Cake.

The Clandestine Cake Club is one of my favourite food-related gatherings in Newcastle. I have been attending cake club for over a year and a half now and cannot recommend it highly enough. I mean, if you love cake and want to meet some awesome people who also love cake... This is the place for yo…

Meal Planning Monday - 9th Sept

Its September folks! That crept up on us a little didn't it? I am heading into a very busy time at work, so I can only apologise if posting becomes a little erratic. Who am I kidding? My posts are always pretty erratic! I keep reading all of these blog-guides on how it is better to have a pos…

Pulled Pork Perfection.

I am a bit late to the pulled pork party, as I tend to be with most foodie trends. Food trends are funny things. Someone comes up with something wonderful, people love it, more people love it, people blog about it, newspapers write about it and then suddenly this saturation point is reached and …
