Postcard from Iceland #4 | The North

Postcard from Iceland #4 | The North

Outside of Reykjavik, Iceland is sparsely populated with individual farmsteads and small communities dotted across a rural landscape. Farming and fishing are still key industries but the last decade has seen huge growth in software, biotechnology, finance and service industries and a significant increase in tourism. Sauðárkrókur – Hólar – Akureyri After an inland detour [Read More…]

Postcard from Iceland #3 | The North West

Postcard from Iceland #3 | The North West

I’m conscious that it’s now several months since our summer visit to Iceland and that I stalled after sharing just two ‘postcards’. I’ve been processing more of the images from the trip and decided to resume the series; better late than never! We didn’t have time on this trip to include the Western Fjords that [Read More…]

In (& Out Of) My Kitchen

In (& Out Of) My Kitchen

I had so much fun with last month’s In My Kitchen – a romp through a busy month by way of Instagram – that I thought I’d rinse and repeat!    My little baby nephew was born and I couldn’t wait to meet him. The first time he was 10 days old, and the second, [Read More…]

Scoff Club Subscription Sweets Giveaway

Scoff Club Subscription Sweets Giveaway

As a child of the seventies, I have strong memories of walking to the local newsagents with my pocket money and choosing sweets. Oh, the excitement! Tiny white chocolate teddy bears were a particular bargain at 2 for half a penny, but I also had a penchant for drumstick lollipops, fruit salad chews, pineapple and [Read More…]

Who? Why? Huawei?

Who? Why? Huawei?

Since my first smartphone, I’ve been a loyal Android girl. Having worked extensively with Apple macs in a professional capacity I was never as bowled over by their alleged coolness as many of my contemporaries, nor willing to pay the premium. I started with an HTC Wildfire which didn’t disappoint; I quickly became used to [Read More…]

Glazebrook House Hotel | A Perfectly Modern Country Hotel

Glazebrook House Hotel | A Perfectly Modern Country Hotel

If you were to write a wish list for the perfect, modern country house hotel, what might you include? For me I’d be looking for a beautiful rural setting with plenty of varied attractions in the vicinity, easy to get to but still with that feeling of getting away from it all, sumptuous and spacious [Read More…]

Hello, Black Garlic! Black Garlic, Mushroom & Cream Penne Pasta

Hello, Black Garlic! Black Garlic, Mushroom & Cream Penne Pasta

I’ve been reading about black garlic for the last few years. I’ve even tried a product made with black garlic – my friend Dave made some striking black garlic cheese which I used in a delicious seasonal butternut squash and cheese bake. But until this week, I’d never actually tried the stuff as it comes, [Read More…]

Cooking With Codlo | The Space Saver Sous Vide

Cooking With Codlo | The Space Saver Sous Vide

Sous-vide is a wonderful cooking technique, but it’s not an ideal option for anyone tight on either budget or space. Our ‘prosumer’ water bath (the SousVide Supreme) is the size of a small microwave and has a list price on the wrong side of £370. Even disregarding the price angle, kitchens are already groaning under [Read More…]

3 Ingredient Smoothie | Banana, Matcha & Prune

3 Ingredient Smoothie | Banana, Matcha & Prune

Green smoothies are all the rage. But I’ve just not developed a taste for kale, spinach, broccoli or any other green vegetable in my smoothies and prefer to stick to my fruit concoctions. A banana is a great start to the day. In recent years, bananas have received some bad press because they do not [Read More…]

Memories of Luton, Lübeck, Marzipan and Niederegger + Marzipan Giveaway

Memories of Luton, Lübeck, Marzipan and Niederegger + Marzipan Giveaway

You can take the girl out of Luton… Smack in the middle of the eighties – which I still hold to be the best decade, musically and fashion-wise (though I admit to harbouring some bias on this) – I did a German Language Exchange Trip through my secondary school. Luton and Hamburg were an odd [Read More…]
