New on the blog. Beaches, chicken and gin - North Norfolk with a toddler.

Four months after we went on holiday I finally get to finish the blog post. Better late than never! Our holidays have changed over the years. Yes we still like to stay in places that aren’t carbon copy or run of the mill, but we also like quiet places…
Our 2016 summer holiday in North Norfolk with a toddler in tow. Full of beaches, ice cream, chickens, tree climbing, puddle jumping and gin.

Is this the end of The Great British Bake Off?

  I have no qualms in confessing I’ve been a fan of GBBO since the start and was approached by the BBC for series 1. I turned them down as at the time I was not eligible to apply due to my job. I can still distinctly remember going to the Good Food Show…
As the seventh series comes to an end GBBO, as we know it, will be no more. Will it be the same without the ever-reliable trio Mary, Mel and Sue?

[New post] Cherry and Coconut Hot Cross Buns for @waitrose #WaitroseHotCrossBun #sp

While tradition states Hot Cross Buns should be eaten on Good Friday, many shops now sell these fruit studded buns all year round. I try to resist temptation and only buy/make them during the Easter period. Hot Cross Buns use one of my favourite types of…

[New on the blog] Review: Festive Afternoon Tea @Panoramic34

I finally finished maternity leave in September to return to work part-time. To say life has been chaotic is an understatement. Due to time and financial pressures that come hand in hand when you have a young family it can be tough to find quality…
