Bills Restaurant – Nottingham

Earlier this week I was very kindly invited to Bill’s Restaurant on Queen Street in Nottingham to try out their new menu. I have visited a couple of times for brunch (you can read my review HERE) but haven’t had dinner here yet. I’m not sure why Bill’s Nottingham slips my mind whenever I am…

Mushrooms on toast

I have always wanted to eat mushrooms on toast, but as most recipes call for cream, I’ve never eaten them. Last weekend I really wanted mushrooms as part of my breakfast so I made this loaded toast with ingredients I always have to hand. It turned out even better than expected and made for a…

Cuzina -West Bridgford

I haven’t been so excited to write a review in quite a while! Last night I was invited to dine at Cuzina in West Bridgford for the first time. The Greek restaurant, situated on Radcliffe Road, just up from the McDonalds, is a firm favourite for some of my friends. Why I haven’t yet visited…

Vegan Ramen with sticky tofu

I bloody love Japanese food and ramen is one of my favourite comfort foods. It’s like a huge hug, and I needed it today after celebrating the new year with a couple too many drinks! This recipe feeds 4 people (and reheats perfectly for lunch the next day!) Ingredients For the broth 1 pint of…

I blooming love lotus biscuits. I also love millionaire shortbread. The sweet caramel taste is guaranteed to make me smile no matter how bad a day I am having.

Vegan pesto hors d’oeuvres

With world vegan month fast approaching (November) and Christmas just around the corner, it is time to start thinking about the festive period. In an effort to eat less meat, I took part in Veganuary 2018 and it absolutely debunked all the myths I had previously believed. It isn’t expensive, bland and boring. In fact,…

Harts Restaurant – Nottingham

Hart’s Restaurant is somewhere I have always wanted to visit… in about 10 years time. The impression I have always had is that it is sophisticated fine dining that I will love, but not until I am older. I have no idea why I have this impression, maybe because whenever anyone tells me how much…

What would I do if I won the Lottery

Every now and then I have a feeling that my numbers may come up if I buy a Lottery ticket. They haven’t so far, but it never stops me daydreaming of what I would do if my 7 magical balls appeared and gave me instant Millionaire status. There are so many things I want to…

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…
