Just look at those lovely syrupy sweet stem ginger gems. Who can resist not making something rich and decadently buttery with them?! I surely couldn’t so when a friend of mine fed me his ginger cake I had to go and recreate i...

Love these loaded sweet potato skins, so yummy and go great with a green salad! Super easy to make! #food #foodporn #sweetpotato #dinnerideas #recipes  
I love sweet potatoes! I think they are such a versatile veg, you can do so much to them. I have two particular favourites however, one of them is sweet potato mash and the other is loaded sweet potato skins. I am actually go...

Day 4 of my week of salads. I have gone and made the prawn cocktail Zigny spicy and even sexier! Say what you like this chield of the 70s is a magnificent meal! #food #salads #healthyliving #healthyeating #prawncocktail  
Oh the famous prawn cocktail, it has gone through so many permutations, so why not put it through one more. I love prawns and I just had to do this because I love the combination of sweet prawns and creamy avocado. Prawns are...

Day two of my week of salads and we have the humble beetroot in the limelight. This little root is crammed full of vitamins and minerals that are so good for you.
Day two of my Salad adventure sees is paying homage to the humble beetroot. When I was planning this week I wanted to make sure that the salads weren’t just low calories, that is easily done. I wanted them to be highly nutrit...

This Easter weekend I did a couple of things for the first time, they were both big in my eyes but both for different reasons. As part of my “walk myself happy” campaign I went to Wales with a friend to have little, yes you g...

Healthy low fat chocolate brownies are now here. These are gooey and fantastic and pretty guilt free. #healthyliving #chocolate #brownies #food #baking  
Who doesn’t like a nice gooey chocolate brownie? It is one of those safe go to pubs that you know will be good and that you can tailor to your tastes. Chocolate brownies come with many extras, you can add nuts, dried fruit, f...

I am trying to get an idea of whether people are interested in pushing companies such as Starbucks to inform their consumers on how to recycle better and what you can do with their products or the receptacles they come in. Please Visit the site below and vote if you think that the idea is worth furthering. Thank you.
#recycle   #recycling   #coffee   #starbucks  
Some Starbucks stores already offer customers coffee grounds to take for use as compost for their gardens. This is useful only to experienced gardeners who are aware that you can use coffee grounds as compost and that you can also germinate seeds in coffee ground or a 50/50 coffee potting soil ...

A homely creamy rich risotto with a glass of white wine. What more could you want? How about a crispy arancini ball for starter too? #food #risotto #arancini #italianfood #goodfood  
I love rice in all its’ glorious permutations. Even just simply cooked water and a bit of salt, rice can be extremely satisfying to me. It compliments so many dishes but is equally capable of producing a main that will be stu...

The last installment in my Week of Salads is this gorgeous Tuna Medley. A perfect incident that happened and one I hope you will try. #salad #food #tuna #tunasalad #summersalad  
My last salad and it is a stunner! This came about as a “oh dear what have I got in the fridge that needs eating”. Turns out I had quite a lot actually. Initially I had something very different planned but as I was looking t...

A salad a day will keep the doctor away! Also it will help with that beach body you have in your head! I am putting together a series for 5 different healthy yet filling salads to have through the week at work. Part 1 is the shopska! I hope you enjoy it and I hope it shows you that you can both eat well and eat healthy! #salad #healthydiet #shopska #food #healthyeating
Summer is coming! Or so we here in the UK are hoping. We have holidays planned, beaches we want to go to and we are already stressing about our beach bodies! Training regimes and diets forgotten after January have been picked...

I love this place. The atmosphere is great and the staff are friendly. There is a good choice of craft ales and beer that is changed often enough that you don't get bored. They have a wood oven and make good food too! There is live music. And the best bit is that it is not pretentious.

It can be really hit and miss. They are a busy place and therefore service can be slow. Food is alright but nothing special. The view of Christ Church College makes up for it some.

Food is ok, it is a chain after all. Not authentic French, more what passes from French in middle England. Love the clams but the food does sometimes come luke warm (usually coz they are too busy). Staff is good though and they have strawberry beer which is lovely.

I went with my little sister who is the bride to be. She paid £50 for the appointment, which goes to the dress if she was to buy one from there, which is fair enough but after the experience I don't really want to give them money. When we arrived we were told that the they were short staffed and tye lady that served us was not originally on wedding dresses. Boy did that show! If that was tue only problem we could have easily overlooked it, but alas there was more. Not only was this lady clueless about tue dresses but she was brash, poorly spoken and very bosy. We quickly found out they were short staffed because they were overbooked forcing 5 brides ti share 3 mirrors (what a magical experience...not). My sister had ordered a dress from the main store as this branch didn't carry it and they had sent the smallest size possible. As tiny as my sister is she is not a size 0 and this dress could not be zipped up. The staff couldn't answer questions about the fabric and how it would behave through the day. And while the dresses were beutiful the experience was so disappointing that it put a real damper on the rest of our day. There are plenty if small boutiques around the place who stock Provonias dresses, try them out instead of this one. You are likely to save yourself both heartache and £50.

Very busy place! Good food, love the garlic chicken and the calamari is great and fresh. Staff are friendly and it is always fun to sit in a refurbished bath tub.

My go to Thai good in Oxford. There are a few good that restaurants but this is my favourite as the food is always fresh the atmosphere inside is lovely and the service is great. They will also tailor dishes to your spice tolerance which is important for me.
