Brother Hubbard South, Portobello, Dublin

Another Friday now in sight and it’s the weekend the clocks spring forward. Really looking forward to bright evenings…just hope this weather is going to improve slightly.

Orange Curd Recipe.

  Happy Monday Everyone! This is our last week before our clocks spring forward and I for one can’t wait for even brighter evenings. This weekend was St Patrick’s weekend so we had an extra day off to celebrate and I jumped at the chance to go to Mayo. Sadly, it rained and rained the…

A 4 day week is a beautiful thing. I am so excited for St Patrick’s Day weekend as I’m going home for a few days. Keep an eye on my Instagram to see what I get up to, and more importantly, what I get to eat. I’m still settling into my new job though so…

My Saturday Full Irish.

Don’t start about processed meat and how it’s bad for you – we’ve all heard it! Sometimes though, a proper Full Irish is the only thing for a Saturday morning. We woke up early today to go to Marley Park for Park Run but it was so windy and wet we were put off. I…

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Recipe

Another Trip Around The Sun: First things first – have you noticed the water marks on our kitchen table? They are all I can see and they drive me crazy. Our apartment came furnished, thank god, and this table is one of the few things that needs a bit of love. Honestly, it is now…

Don’t Dump that on me: Oh CHEESY DUMPLINGS in a home-made stew. Simple, wholesome pleasures and the perfect meal for a lazy Saturday.

Simple Pancake Recipe.

You know when you get a craving for something particular and can’t get rid of it? That’s what happened me – all throughout January, I have had the biggest craving for pancakes with lemon and sugar. Simple but very effective. I have a small kitchen here in our Dublin apartment so need to set myself…
