Bloom Festival – June Bank Holiday

Remember when I said I was going to Bloom a couple of weeks ago? I’m finally getting a chance to clear the photos off my camera and chat about how it went. To be honest, I really went for the food element as it is run by Bord Bia but have to say I was…

Sticky Toffee Cake

To me, there is something so beautiful about a plain loaf cake wrapped in parchment paper. I don’t know whether it is the rectangular shape of the cake, or the contrast between the two textures or what, but I could spend (and have spent!) hours look at photos of them on Instagram and never tire…

Update

News, news. Let me think of some news. Well we didn’t find my bicycle for starters. Or rather, we did find it but didn’t get it back. I went down to that Garda station all Nancy Drew’d up with CCTV, dates, times and where I believed Elyse (my bike) was and all they could tell…

Connemara, Co. Galway

Oh Where Is My Teaspoon – how I’ve missed you! I don’t know about you guys but I am having such a bad week. I’ve just come back off my holidays to Connemara and am playing catch up at work which doesn’t feel like it’s going well, and on top of that my Cambridge bicycle…

We all have favourites – trustworthy and reliable. What happens though when you visit one of your top cafes, only to be left really disappointed. Sadly,…

Shortcrust Pastry Recipe.

Fruit pies are something I think most people my age associate with their mothers. Nearly every 90s baby I know, remembers being offered a sugary piece of cooking apple from their mother’s baking bowl, and to this day resisting eating a piece from my own baking bowl is a challenge for me! A standard Shortcrust…
