Pimped Quinoa Salad
I know; another quinoa salad recipe. This one is really good, so give it a go! I've just made a huge batch for my lunches this week; it's versatile and easy to pair with so many things (or have it on its own!), so it's perfect for making in bulk. To make ab...

Jamie's Italian - The Best Superfood Salad?
If you know anything about me, it's that I like to eat out. A lot. It's not unusual for me to eat out twice, sometimes three times a week - I absolutely love it. I love the atmosphere, catching up with family & friends over gorgeous food that someone else h...

Reflecting on 'Dry November'
It's been an insanely busy, crazy six weeks - hence the lack of blog posts here. I'm sure as I slip back into routine and the festivities feel like a long lost memory, I'll be back blogging regularly, but the last few weeks were mad with work, social & fami...

Tuesday @ Y Fabrica
When I first moved to Didsbury, Mudcrab was one of my favourite restaurants. I especially loved their signature burger and fries (perfect hangover cure with friends), but was also a place I brought my parents, and I thought they'd got that balance as an all...
