Vegan Pesto Spaghetti & Balsamic Veggies

As I don’t eat dairy, I find it hard to find a pesto that I can enjoy without stomach aches. I concocted this through sheer frustration and think it is the best pesto to ever have been created! It is vegan, inexpensive to make and absolutely delicious… I promise. If you are looking for a…

Nottingham Food Festival Wollaton Park 2018

This morning I headed along to the Living Heritage food festival at Wollaton Park for the third year running. I absolutely love the mix of creative stalls, food stands and of course foodie bits to purchase! We arrived at 11.30am and it was pretty packed, in fact the food tents were rammed. It’s always good…

Lemon, Ginger & Pistachio Loaf

Lemon, Ginger & Pistachio Loaf Recipe from Neha at Mostly food and travel Neha is one of my favourite bloggers. Her recipes have me drooling over my keyboard and her travel posts are so informative. I also love pistachio and this cake sounds amazing, I will definitely be making it! Neha says: Some of my…

Mowgli Street Food – Nottingham

Mowgli in Nottingham has been on the cards for a while and last week it finally opened. Located in Hockley at 1 Stoney Street (The big pink building on the corner opposite Void and across the road from Ice Nine) it is a three storey building standing out from the crowd. Would Hockley, known for…

Guests Post – The holiday of a lifetime in Cancun

Whilst I am off exploring Vietnam with Eleanor (keep up to date with my travels via INSTAGRAM and TWITTER) I have some bloggers taking over my site! Here is Alice telling us why she loves Cancun! “Find out more about Alice V at www.diyerfy.com where she blogs about crafts and all things D.I.Y. She also…

Revolution – Nottingham

Revolution at the Cornerhouse, the place you probably only go on a night out for cheap cocktails. With a massive bar and huge amount of seating it’s easy to see why this bar attracts a crowd of an evening. However until recently it wasn’t a place I would suggest to my friends for dinner. A…

Pizza Academy @ Oscar & Rosies – Nottingham

Yesterday I, and 17 other lovely people, headed down to Oscar & Rosie’s to take part in their pizza academy. Organised by Jess Berry from Jess Who and the lovely people at Bumble Bizz, we took part in a workshop aimed to show us how to make pizza properly. Famous for their METRE long pizza, I…

The Lobster Pot – Nottingham

Last weekend was brilliant! My lovely parents made the 90 minute drive to come and spend the weekend with Eleanor and I. I miss them so much when I don’t see them, so it was lovely to have them here. To celebrate, we booked in to The Lobster Pot on Mansfield Road for Saturday evening…

Sushimania – Nottingham

A few weeks ago Sushimania opened up right round the corner from my work. I did wonder whether with the pre-existing Yo Sushi and Bonsai to name but two, would there be room for another sushi restaurant in the city? Located in the old Ask Italian restaurant in Chapel Bar, Sushimania has a small entrance…

5 tasty quick dinners

Working full time doesn’t mean having to eat boring food during the week. I try to cook delicious food during the week, as quickly as possible. I try to keep all midweek dinners under 30 minutes for my housemate and I, including all prep time. There is so much I need to do when I…

Vegan chocolate brownies

The thing I seemed to miss most during Veganuary was chocolate. There is an amazing vegan chocolate from Aldi with a hint of sea salt but because it isn’t my usual supermarket I would often forget to grab some. I missed walking into the freshly baked or snack aisle of my local supermarket and grab…

Las Iguanas – Nottingham

I was invited to Las Iguanas, Nottingham last week week to try out their new menu. Now, I have to be honest, this is the first time I have been to a Las Iguanas, even though it is right next door to work. With this in mind I can’t comment on the changes to the menu…
