It’s not really Tom Yum Soup

I’ve had the weekend to myself!! Now this is a rarity, the Dazzler is off to visit his mum and instead of doing what I usually would, trying out new recipes and getting drunk I decided to do a spot of DIY and have spent my time sprucing up our bedroom!! This would usually call…

Theres something about the Taste…

One of the highlights of this weeks TV for me had to be the start of The Taste UK on channel 4. It is a foodies dream – Not only does it have Nigella, Bourdain and chef Ludo- who are a great triple act, but it had lots of real food in (sometimes huge) bitesize…

Healthy Fast Food comes to Brighton….Finally!!

Considering yesterday was Friday 13th it was a pretty good day for me. I’m not feeling ill anymore which is a plus, I’ve finally got organised at work ( it’s only taken three months) AND I’ve found our new favourite fast food place…. LumberjacksFood They’ve only been open for 3 days but I saw one…

I’ve got a big bag of salad….Now what?

After this weekends fabbifun I’ve just spent the day recovering (yes I already booked it off) and have just risen from my pit feeling the need to replenish the good feeling I had before the weekend. Now don’t get me wrong. This isn’t a ‘woe is me’ post, I knew what I was getting myself…

I hate it when blogs get all preachy but I have to share with you the importance of using your local markets, not because the food is fresher, or for supporting local farmers, or even because its incredibly low carbon footprint but for one very simple yet crucial reason…. They are sooooo much cheaper!! Take…

Choc & Cherry Hot Cross Buns

I was tempted by adverts for Marks & Spencer’s chocolate hot cross buns for this easter but they were sooo expensive and I wanted to bake so I thought I’d try and make my own!! Unfortunately all the recipes I saw online had candied peel in, which I detest, so I thought about using maraschino…

My perfect Sunday Roast post….

There is nothing like a sunday roast for bringing people together. Yet when I’ve spoken to family, friends, and fellow bloggers its the one thing, other than getting a cooked breakfast right, that gives them grey hairs. I’ve tried to make this as simple as possible and this post could go on forever, but I…

How to get through a hangover in your forties

For the last couple of months, as its our off season, I’ve been going out much more than usual and having a really great time. The only downside to this is that, now that I’m in my forties, I get real hangovers. Im not talking the irritating headache and queazy stomach kind I got in…
