The Energy Smoothie (that taste like cookie dough ice cream)

October 23, 2017

This recipe comes fresh from one of my spontaneous ‘F*@$ it! Chuck in whatever I have in the kitchen’ moments. I’ll be honest, the outcome of these moments aren’t always 100% edible (blueberries and instant coffee – what was I thinking?) But not this time. This time I somehow managed to create a delicious concoction with a flavour and texture that reminded me of a sweet scoop of…

Sweet Berry Smorridge

October 9, 2017

  When it comes to breakfast, I’ll choose the sweet option every time – unless I’m absolutely hanging out my arse in which case hit me up with the greasiest full english you’ve got – but recently, I’ve definitely been overdoing it on the sweet stuff. I’ve gotten into a really bad habit of swinging into Pret or Starbucks on my way to work to gore on jam…

I want to taste strange things in strange places

October 18, 2016

One thing I regret about my Asian travels is not being adventurous enough with the food. Don’t worry, I wasn’t that annoying British Tourist who only ate egg and chips every night and complained about the tea (okay, maybe a little complaining about the tea, but only because Lipton was the only brand I could ever  bloody find). Whilst in Asia I obviously did a lot of foreign…


Guilt Free Banoffee Pie

September 11, 2016

A moment on the lips is forever on the hips, or so they say! But I’ve been making a big effort to eat healthy lately and whilst dining at London’s Salad Pride recently, I was able to enjoy a slice of Banoffee Pie that was completely guilt free – a raw, vegan, triangle of heaven. But don’t be put off by the words ‘raw’ or ‘vegan’ because it…

The only Frappuccino Recipe you’ll ever need

August 25, 2016

Iced Lattes are my fave. Flavoured Frappes are yummy too. The only problem is that they aren’t exactly the healthiest of drinks, and they can be quite expensive too. From Costa’s creamy Caramel Coolers to Starbucks Cookie Crumble Frappuccino’s (although, wow, that sounds tasty) these iced coffee drinks are quite calorific and mighty high in sugar, and each costing around £3.40. So why not make your own at home?…


Tokyo to go Please

August 13, 2016

In case I haven’t already made it clear in this post, or this video, or on my Insta feed, I love Japanese food! Unfortunately I’ve found that Japanese is one of the least popular takeaway options when I hunt through my drawer of menu’s or browse on Just-Eat for local sushi haunts. It seems Pizza & Chicken dominate the takeaway listings (do we really need so many Chicken shops?) But…


Dim Sum & Chinese Tea: What goes with what?

July 22, 2016

I absolutely love Chinese food and culture! And with Beijing being the first city I ever backpacked to, China will forever hold a special place in my heart. For that reason I love to be as authentic as possible when it comes to eating and tying Chinese food and traditions – so less rice and chips and more wontons and dumplings. With this in mind, I thought I…

Eating, Praising and Loving Gelato

June 24, 2016

Amorino 110 Upper Street, N1 1QN, Islington Amorino.com I’ve always wondered how cool it would be to work in an ice cream parlour and be a professional ice cream taster – #DreamJob or what? Well, on Wednesday I got the chance to try it out when I spent the afternoon sampling many flavours of Gelato and creating italian ice cream masterpieces. In the lovely area of Angel, along…
