Spaghetti Carbonara

I actually think Carbonara is one of my favourite ever meals. It’s one of those meals I could always be in the mood for, tastes incredible and is actually so simple to make! There are so many different ways to make a Carbonara but my personal favourite is when it doesn’t involve cream. In this…

Chicken & Chorizo Paella

It seems that summer is officially done and dusted and the dark gloomy days are setting in now for the coming months. When it comes to the Autumn/Winter months I like to change up my menu and go for those home cooked simple but tasty warm dishes and this recipe is certainly ticks that box….

Chicken Katsu Curry

I have to say a Chicken Katsu Curry is a go to of mine but I don’t think I’ve ever had two that taste the same; it makes finding a recipe for that perfect Katsu quite difficult. I know a lot of people rave about Wagamama’s Katsu but I personally wasn’t all that fussed when…

Making The Most Of A Lockdown Birthday

Like most others in the world right now, we’ve had some plans that have had to be cancelled/postponed due to Covid19. For us this was the joint celebration of my Mum & Dad’s 50th birthdays. Our original plans were to go away with the extended family to a lovely house in North Yorkshire where we…

My ‘Simple’ Skincare Routine

I’ve always hated skin care. I have spent FAR too much of my hard earned salary on make up over the years, I’ve got countless lipsticks that barely vary in shades and more dried out mascaras than I care to admit. So far this year I’ve bought one make up product and that was an…

Get Fit With Me: Pamela Reif: 10 Mins Six Pack Abs

Just like the majority of the population, getting fit is one of my goals for 2020. I say this EVERY year and it doesn’t take me long at all to fall off the band wagon. So yes, if you were wondering, I am one of those ‘joins the gym in January and annoy all the…

Hello 2020!!

As we enter a brand new year, many of us will be penning a list of those famous New Year resolutions which sadly we often end up tearing up and binning before January is even finished! Some of the science behind this failure is that our brains are naturally wired up to be negative and…

Santorini: What/Where to Eat in Perivolos

One of my favourite things about going on holiday is the food. Never mind going on holiday, food is just one of my favourite things in life. I stayed on the South side of the island in Perivolos which is about a half an hour walk from Perissa. While there are hundreds of restaurants on…

Gousto – W/C 1st July 2019

OK So I think this is up there with one of my favourite weeks of recipes in my Gousto box. Two I’ve had before and two were completely new to me and I’ve made some of these recipes since because they are just so damn good! So this week I have ordered the following four…

Gousto – W/C 24th June 2019

So I’ve decided I’m going to make a series out of my Gousto boxes each week. I think everyone I work with is sick of me raving about it now so at least I can write about it here and those who want to read can do. So this week I have ordered the following…
