I’ve talked about making raw chocolate at home before, but I’ve never actually got round to sharing a recipe for it. It is so easy to make, and tastes amazing – plus as it contains raw cacao it is actually pretty good for you as it contains loads of antioxidants as well as good fats, from the cacao butter and the coconut oil. As well as that it is refined sugar free, so it’s much, much better for you than… View Post

A few weeks ago I took a trip to London on my own to attend a very exciting event with Lily O’Brien’s chocolate and popular wine critic Jilly Goolden. The event was a wine matching masterclass in which Jilly talked us through pairings she had made with luxury, premium Lily O’Brien chocolates and a selection of wines and cocktails. The event was held at the Bluefin Building in London with beautiful views over the London skyline including the Shard. It… View Post

On Thursday Ava and I decided to spend the morning making some fun Halloween food, and set up the table to look all spooky. I don’t really do much for Halloween, but we were sent a few bits from the Co-Op, so with it being half-term I thought it would be good to entertain A with for a few hours. We popped to the Co-Op at the end of our street and bought a few more things and some decorative bits,… View Post

A few weeks ago we took a little visit to a new restaurant that had recently opened in Nottingham – Thaikhun – a Thai dining experience serving Thai street food. I absolutely love Thailand and Thai food – we went travelling there during our round the world trip years ago and fell in love with the authentic Thai flavours of Lemongrass and Galangal, and the Massaman and Red and Green Curries. It’s an incredibly beautiful country with an amazing culture… View Post

I absolutely adore a good steak – it is one of my very favourite foods, and one of the biggest reasons why I don’t think I could ever be a veggie (along with Chorizo). Being served a perfectly cooked, great quality steak makes me a very happy girl, but I do find that doesn’t happen too often – steaks are so easily overcooked, or just not very good quality meat, and I’m actually not sure myself how to cook the perfect… View Post

Last month, A and I went to a lovely little event to learn all about the Tefal Cook4Me and make a meal with it ourselves. I arrived with my friend Maria from Suburban Mum and her little boy to the event location – a gorgeous house in London, on a beautifully sunny day, that started with us all standing around drinking Prosecco, whilst the kiddo’s played outside in the garden. We were split into two groups – one to make the starters for us all… View Post
