PizzaSo earlier this week I had a bit of a mare when it came to tea time. After planning to have steak for tea and forgetting to take it out of the freezer to defrost before leaving for work, I had to improvise with what I had in my cupboards to make something else. I came across some mini pizza bases that I bought a while ago and decided to conjure up something tasty using some fresh ingredients from my fridge. View Post

Nutella Chocolate TrufflesLast Friday we had our annual bake off at work to help raise money for Children in Need. Instead of going down the traditional cake route, I thought I’d try making something I’ve never attempted before – chocolate truffles. After receiving a large jar of personalised Nutella for my birthday, I decided to make use of it and make some scrummy truffles with an added kick. View Post

As it was my birthday last weekend, it seemed necessary to celebrate at the Blacksmiths Arms – the home of steak on the stone. Located in North Yorkshire, this traditional country pub is situated in a lovely little village called Swainby. Whenever we have something to celebrate, whether it is a new job, a birthday or anniversary, this place is always on the top of my list of places to visit. View Post

Spooky  Surprise Pudding with Ice Cream

So Halloween is almost upon us and the chill in the air is starting to freak me out a little. This year I seem to be more excited for Halloween than usual, I’m not sure why; maybe it’s because it’s the first one in my own house? (I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing?!). Anyway, I’ve been listening to Monster Mash and Thriller, been to pick out my pumpkin to carve and I even attempted a Halloween themed dessert. View Post

The wonderful thing about my mum is that she’s great at finding out what’s going on in our local area. Last Saturday we decided to head over to Teesside Park after hearing about a little food event that was coming to the retail park called Eats from the Street. View Post
