Roasted Tomato, Red Pepper & Garlic Soup

Watching what I spend is so much easier when I bring a packed lunch to work and this soup is one of my favourites! I tend to make a batch on Sunday evenings and then get at least two good bowls from this recipe. I think there are 2 secrets to a great tomato soup….

The Cake Room | Blackrock, Co. Dublin

Welcome to my new favourite spot: The Cake Room. I don’t know if you guys know, but Trip Adviser is my favourite App. I can’t help but look up restaurant reviews if I’m going anywhere new, even if it’s just one town over. Imagine my happy, big head when I saw The Cake Room on…

Bouncing Back | My top 3 tips

  Over the past few weeks, we have had a lot of cafe review posts (have a look back here, here and here) as well as a couple of great bakes (check this one and this one too!) but today I wanted to share something a little different on Where Is My Teaspoon? I like…

Sweet Cinnamon Loaf

I honestly think my love for loaf cakes will never fade. Every time I see one I just feel happy. Even the really crappy, €2 ones you find in petrol stations. I love them. I rarely buy them, but pick them up and carry them around the shop for a while before I leave it…

The Mellow Fig | Blackrock, Co. Dublin

Hi guys! Happy Hump Day πŸ™‚ As promised, I’m trying to share as many cafe posts as I can over the next month in the hope that you’ll get out and explore some of these before the summer is out. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll probably have already guessed that I’m obsessed with…

If you…

Dolce Sicily | Dawson St, Dublin

Saturday evening already! Doesn’t it go so fast? I’ve actually had a really nice day today and managed to squeeze a lot in which makes me happy. I’d love to be one of these people who can stay home relaxing all day but I just go ape with cabin fever, leading everyone to suddenly hate…

No Bake Branflake Cake.

Who wants life to be complicated? Β Sometimes it’s nice to just throw something together, leave it in the fridge for a little while and then scoff the lot without judgement or exhaustion. Think of this as being a more indulgent, grown up form of jelly. I would actually love to know if sales of jelly…

Salt | Victoria Road, Cork.

Finishing a week of annual leave is one of the worst things about being an adult. Definitely. With the thought of going back to work tomorrow, I thought it would be a good idea to share an experience of a new cafe on Where Is My Teaspoon to look back Β on happier times with a…

The Creel | Westport, Co Mayo

We haven’t had a cafe post on Where Is My Teaspoon in a little while so I thought I’d kick off this week with my visit to The Creel in Westport over the weekend. It’s big and pink with wallpaper and a cake counter. Think oil table cloths, sugar cubes and clipboards as menus. It’s…

Riot Rye | Cloughjordan, Co. Tipperary

Have you ever heard of Cloughjordan Eco Village? Or, have you ever heard about an Eco Village in general? According to their website (link above) “Cloughjordan ecovillage is a member of the Global Ecovillage Network (GEN) which defines an ecovillage as β€˜an intentional or traditional community using local participatory processes to holistically integrate ecological, economic,…

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…
