Designing your ultimate kitchen space

The kitchen is the hub of the home, a place where families can come together to cook and eat, and enjoy each other’s company. If you love preparing, cooking, and eating tasty meals every day, the chances are your kitchen is the most important room in your home; if you’re anything like me, you’ll never be out of it! For that reason, it is essential that your kitchen is a space in which you feel comfortable getting creative. Redecorating is a great excuse to re-evaluate your...

Everyone loves pancakes don’t they? It goes without saying that we all probably like different toppings on them, but love them all the same. Recently I have been experimenting with my diet and trying to cut out gluten and wheat where and when I can, as much as I can. I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to do it to be honest as I absolutely love bread and pasta, but just wanted to test it out and although I do still eat pasta and bread – I eat it less than I did before.

As you will know by now, I am not exclusively a vegetarian or vegan and really enjoy eating meat, but I am not against different forms of diet and I am always up for something different. As I have a couple of friends who are vegetarian and vegan I thought it would be a good idea to list some of my favourite vegetarian and vegan friendly restaurants that I have dined in up and down the country.

They insisted that vegan beer was real, which got me intrigued...

Over the last decade or so there have been lots of concerns over the quality of our diet in this country, particularly with regards to the amount of meat most people eat. Not only that, there has been serious questions raised about what is being done to the meat after it is carved and before it is packaged.

To get the ball rolling with the new blog I thought I’d choose a simple, but tasty recipe that I have had lots of experiencing making in the past. I love what I call Secret Vegetable Pasta because not only is it very easy to make, it is jam packed with healthy and tasty vegetables without tasting like it is. I used the following recipe on 2 of my friend’s kids who often complain about vegetables and it went down a treat. This recipe would easily serve 4 people, or 2 people...
