Review: The White Dog Cafe, Philadelphia @WhiteDogCafe

As a food blogger, I probably have a slightly different view of being a “foodie.”  So when, on a trip to Philadelphia to meet family friends, they told me that the White Dog Cafe was a foodie kind of place, I was envisioning something like El Bulli!  But…

I am a bit of a nerd.  This I definitely know.  I was probably doomed from the age of 5, at which point Star Trek became my favourite TV show.  I had my own uniform and communicator.  I have strong views about the political system of Star Wars.  My…

The end is near. The end of my PhD is approaching.  Which means that I’m both elated to see the light at the end of the tunnel and unbelievably nervous about making sure that it’s perfect.  I’m doing a lot of back and forth between America and London at…

Review: The Violet Bakery, Hackney @violetcakes

I don’t really make it to the ultra-trendy Hackney (or as I describe it to my sister, the Brooklyn of London) that much.  It is still a bit out of the way and since I work and study more south-west, it tends to take a bit more time than I have to enjoy…

Anyone familiar with the news this week knows that it’s a bit of a hard time for London – the uncertainty has been very scary, especially for those of us who aren’t British.  I love London, but it’s heart-breaking when friends (from the EU originally or…

I reject the idea of seasonal flavours. I get it, I’ve done it myself.  Just the taste of crisp apples reminds me of fall, at Christmas I can’t get enough of peppermint and a red velvet cheesecake or cupcake is the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day, but I…

Delicious Kernow Trail @DelishTrails @Buttermilkfudge

As part of our quest to see the UK this year, Beardy Husband and I really wanted to make sure we saw Cornwall.  We’ve heard from many people, both friends and family, that it’s one of the most beautiful parts of the UK and well worth a visit – in fact,…

Chocolate Chip Cookies and The Cookies and Cups Cookbook @GalleryBooks @sugardrama

I blame Challenge Sophie.  I’m a big fan of the classes at Sweaty Betty and I attended her 5k run and lecture.  One of her major themes was the importance of showing up and working hard, even if you’re the sweaty person at the back of the run or the class…

I don’t think I really understood before I started my PhD the toll that it can take on your life.  I’ve been in school since I was 3 years old and university in Ireland, with its long periods of self study before an exam, is fair preparation for the…

Miami Beach Food @MIACulinaryTour

Not being a particular partying person, Miami has never been particularly high on my list of places that I wanted to visit.  But what I didn’t know was the amount of interesting culture in Miami Beach: both the amazingly lovely Art Deco architecture and…
