I don't fall for the 'I don't like Valentine's Day because it's too commercialised' kind of statements-I fittingly love, LOVE, LOVE it! Why? Because it's a day to celebrate love whether that's romantic or otherwise and no one can have too much love (or red roses) can they?!
Half-term is almost upon us and the prospect of entertaining 2 young children for 9 WHOLE days can be pretty daunting.
As I mentioned in December 2015 (that seems so long ago now)! 2016 is the year of the collaboration for me, and that it is!
Cool sesame street cakes.
Christmas is the time for friends and family to get together and as the 'hostess with the mostess', I love nothing more than having everyone round my maison to celebrate the festive season.
Anyone who lives or has lived in Leeds, will know that Arts Cafe's sticky toffee pudding is the stuff of legends!
I have a slight obsession with Mulberry bags (OK...make that a MAJOR obsession).
We love entertaining here and it's been a month of partying this November from my birthday (which has been dragged out for pretty much most of the month-well you only turn 35 once right?!... to my cousin's epic 21st birthday party on Saturday night).
Tea at Betty's.
Life is busy right now. Crazy busy but I've never been happier. I love being rather manic, it's my default mode, and doing what I love: blogging and all that that entails is constantly stretching and stimulating me. I feel ALIVE people!
A Japanese recipe.
So I'm now three weeks into my vegan diet and what initially started out as a temporary detox has turned into well...a bit of a way of life! Let's see how things go but so far, so good folks!
The Jamaican dish of Escoveitched Fish.
Sunday saw the sun come out to play in Yorkshire, so we rallied round to my folks' house and had a delightful picnic in their garden.
It's already Friday again with a new and long weekend upon us with the bank holiday in the UK (yay) so I thought I better share last weekend with you all, and quick! I love reflecting on our weekends together, our precious family time, where we switch off from the week before, simply hang out, enjoy delicious food, at home, or out, and take in the lush Yorkshire countryside we live in and relax.
We're a household of choccy-lovers so we're all egg-tremely (sorry) egg-xcited (and again) about Easter coming up and the chance to indulge in chocolate eggs!
After a dreamy introduction into cacao cuisine.
