You can’t beat a recipe passed down from your elders. You know it works, you know it’s tasty, and you know it’s most probably going to impress. Well, this one was no different! Whilst at home a little while ago, my Nanny told me about a new salmon recipe she’d been making quite often – Salmon baked with low fat cream cheese and plum tomatoes. It sounded fab and so I had to give it a go. It’s super simple and easy, doesn’t take long to cook, yet it’s delicious and nutritious, making it a perfect mid-week meal. What’s more, it’s only a few ingredients – don’t you just love those recipes which need five ingredients or less?  It’s great served with cous cous and vegetables, but would be just…

City breaks are a must, especially when it’s so easy to hop on a plane for a couple of hours, and end up in a different country! We’re so lucky to be super close to other European cities, and with flights reasonably cheap, you can get away for a weekend for almost the same amount as it’d cost for a weekend in another UK city! Madrid had been on the travel list for a while, and when I found out Kim had never visited either, we decided we just had to plan a girls weekend. Flights booked through BA, at just over £60 each, all that was left was to decide on which region and where to stay. Trawling through Airbnb for the cutest apartment close…

All the bank holiday weekends recently have offered the perfect excuse to go out for brunch, and with Alex’s first sale in his new job to celebrate, I decided I needed to treat him. With pancakes top of his breakfast wishlist, even though I make them almost every weekend at home (I know right?! I like to shake things up myself!), we decided it was finally time to visit The Diner in Camden. Having been on ‘The List’ for ages (it’s ever growing guys!), it only kept getting put to the side as I don’t like to queue for brunch. I like somewhere you can book and arrive at your designated time and sit down straight away – in the mornings I get HANGRY! Like…

Pancakes are a weekend essential in our flat. If we experiment with different breakfast options one day, we’re bound to have pancakes the next, whether they’re fluffy american style (recipe here) or crepes. Fluffy thick pancakes used to be my favourite. I never used to be a crepe fan. A big stack of thick, light pancakes topped with all manner of toppings, came above the thinner crepe style pancakes any day. But recently, I’ve really got into them. Just as quick and easy to make, with only a few store cupboard ingredients, they’re delicious served with all my fave pancake toppings and have become a regular breakfast option. Whether you enjoy your pancakes with bacon/sausage, or with fruit and yoghurt, these are bound to go down…

Instagram is dangerous. I can easily spend hours whiling away the time, scrolling through images, double tapping those I like the look of, and commenting on the images making me envious. It’s like a black hole. And once you start, it’s so hard to put down your phone. Sometimes I find it hard to even watch TV shows now without doing something else too, and Instagram is my go-to bit-on-the-side, followed shortly by writing for you guys on here. It’s just so addictive – and I get quite fidgetty if I’m not constantly on-the-go. I hate wasting days off! There are quite a few accounts who always give me food envy, or lifestyle envy, and I follow pretty closely, but here are my fave 15 foodie accounts…
