They look delicious, smell fabulous and taste extraordinary. The recipe is super easy to make and almost guaranteed to be a hit with your…

Vegan Rose, Lemon and Pistachio cake

(AD) There are a couple of things I have struggled with since trying to attempt a mostly vegan/plant based diet. One of those things is cake. I love cake and trying to find delicately light, fluffy cakes that taste amazing can be a challenge. A friend of mine gave me a very basic vegan cake recipe…

Yolk Nottingham

(Invited) Yolk, the best part of an egg in my opinion, is also the name of a breakfast cafe located in Nottingham. Yolk is situated on the corner of Goose Gate and Brightmore street in Hockley and is run by the same people as Bar 31K next door. If you like 31K, you’ll love Yolk….

Gone are the days when you take a bland, unappealing ready meal from your freezer and place it in the microwave, hoping to god that it tastes better than it looks.

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…
