Mexican at the Bodega Negra Cafe

Soho is the go-to place for a good time in London, and it was top of my list for dinner and cocktails after visiting an exhibition. Bodega Negra Cafe boasts a vibrant, lively ambience with a cool Soho-vibe. The decor makes for a trendy atmosphere and the staff were friendly. It has all the makings… Continue reading Mexican at the Bodega Negra Cafe

Sweet Treats and Seafood in Brighton

As lockdown continues to ease across the UK, I thought I’d finally get around to writing a post on my trip to Brighton- or rather, the food I ate on my trip to Brighton. This trip was quite a while ago now, so my memory is unclear on a few things. Therefore, I decided to… Continue reading Sweet Treats and Seafood in Brighton

Pasta at Vapiano

I was looking through old pictures on my phone and came across some photos of my visit to Vapiano last year. I’m not obsessed with pasta (okay, I am), but pasta is great to photograph. Is that just me? Anyway, Vapiano is a canteen- style Italian restaurant that caters to the ‘swipe and go’ generation.… Continue reading Pasta at Vapiano

Eating outside again (finally)

As the lockdown restrictions have eased, it’s been so good to be able to enjoy food and drink at a restaurant or cafe outside.

Here is a round-up of… Continue reading Eating outside again (finally)

Delicious Cinnamon Buns

Even though I’ve been into baking for a few years now, I’ve never tried baking cinnamon buns before. Which is a surprise because I love them! Receiving the Cinnamon Buns kit from Bakedin gave me the opportunity to try my hand at making some. My favourite part was when the house filled with the aroma… Continue reading Delicious Cinnamon Buns

Pancakes with Chocolate and Strawberries

A bit late to the party, but can finally get around to sharing a picture of these delightful pancakes that my boyfriend arranged to be sent to me for Pancake Day. Despite lockdown, I loved the fact that we can still do nice things for each other (I sent pancakes to him in return). What… Continue reading Pancakes with Chocolate and Strawberries

INGREDIENTS  2 chicken breasts cut into 1″ pieces 3 tablespoons olive oil divided 1 tablespoon butter 1/2 teaspoon garlic… Continue reading Comforting Chicken Stroganoff

Pear and Frangipane Tart

I made this absolutely yummy pear and frangipane tart a little while ago. I’m not usually a fan of fruit-based puddings, but this was wonderfully sweet, with just the right amount of sharpness. It was the ideal Autumn/ Winter sweet treat. I froze some of mine to make it last longer. Prep time: 30 mins… Continue reading Pear and Frangipane Tart
