Hard ta-pas(s) up on

This weekend has been mental! It is my birthday on Tuesday so my boyfriend (Rory) and I went home to see my family. Saw some good friends on Friday evening down at the local pub, Saturday day spent walking my two little Jack Russell’s at Clumber Park and in the evening going to see the…

Loaded potato skins

Skip straight to the recipe? Loaded potato skins are one of my go to simple dishes, so easy to make, very minimal effort for such a great tasting meal. I hadn’t eaten these skins in months before my sister cooked them for me a few weeks back, I completely forgot how much I love them!…

Giovanni’s Delicious Deli Lounge, bon appétit!

Sadly this week I went to review “Almost famous”, unfortunately I will not be writing a review for this place due to the 45 minute wait on our food arriving and the bland overpriced burger. Sorely disappointed and will not be going again. On a lighter note, I had a delicious lunch just off Piccadilly…

Delicious gooey brownies

Skip straight to the recipe? Brownies; gooey delicious little bites of heaven. I love them. They are one of my favourite desserts, so simple to make and so tasty! I decided to create a spooky version for a friends Halloween party on Saturday night, after some Pinterest searching I found a great idea to create…

Alabama’s All American Eatery

Brunch! What a wonderful way to spend a lazy Sunday morning. I definitely think brunch is under-rated; a combination of breakfast and lunch for those days where you wake up later than normal but need food now! Today was one of those days. After staying up late having a mini Harry Potter marathon after a…

Chefwynd’s famous vegan stir-fry

Skip straight to the recipe? This stir-fry is famous, I say famous in the lightest sense. Famous to me as most of my friends have eaten it. A few years ago (when I cooked less than I should have) I used to always cook the same things. When I would invite the girls round for…

Olive and Vine for tapas and wine

This evening Rory and I decided to travel to Olive & Vine, a Mediterranean restaurant and tapas bar, located in Didsbury village. We almost went here at the beginning of our relationship, but due to a change of plans we never went. With a taste card offer that is hard to refuse (50% off food),…

Wahaca Burrito Bar in the Corn Exchange, Manchester

Choosing a restaurant to review is always very tough; there are so many restaurants I want to try and so many I wish to share with you! Today I have chosen to share with you a restaurant I went to a while ago with my family. I loved this restaurant a lot, I don’t know…

Beef & Pudding’s take on a traditional Sunday Roast

Traditional, British Sunday roast is one of my all time favourites. I absolutely love Yorkshire puddings drenched in gravy and succulent, tender beef a little pink. My idea of heaven! When I first moved to Manchester three years ago I had a horrible fear I would never get to experience a Sunday roast quite like…

Wonderful weekend away in Coniston, Lake District

This week I am doing something a little different with my blog post, instead of a standard Manchester food review, I will be reviewing Sara’s Indian in Coniston, as well as a little bit about my weekend away with friends. This week has gone by in a blur. Back to the shire (Lincolnshire/Nottinghamshire) to see…

Fine dining, prosecco and celebrations

Wednesday evenings are now dedicated to the Great British Bake Off, as many fellow Brits would agree. But a new job offer calls for celebration; Rory and I decided to watch it on catch up the following evening and instead, go for a lovely Italian in Castlefield. A Prosecco bar and a fine Italian, is…
