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?  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  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 ‘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…

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…

Perfect Picnics

Oh god do I love a picnic! Ah you know I do. What could be better than packing up a wicker basket, filling up a flask of tea and grabbing a stripey blanket and heading out the door? If you need inspiration planning a picnic, check out my top tips here! While I have a…

Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! Our long weekend away in Lahinch has finally arrived 🙂 We are so excited and I need to get packing and get the apartment tidied up a little bit before we go but I wanted to share a look at a Carrot Cake I made during the week. A lady I work…

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,…
