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…

Son of Steak – New menu launch

If you read my blog, you’ll know that I adore Son of Steak in Trinity Square. So much so that a quote from a previous blog post is emblazoned on their huge glass window. They are typically a steak restaurant but they ‘do things differently’ and are ‘rebellious’. Their points of difference in comparison to…

Oaty Blueberry cookies

I’ve been struggling to control my sweet tooth throughout January. As well as doing Veganuary I’ve also tried to cut out chocolate, sweets and crisps. I figure that January is the most depressing month of the year, why not make it as bad as humanly possible haha. These cookies are sweet, chewy and crumbly all…
