I spend a fair bit of time travelling around the county as part of my job and, I don't know about anyone else, but I was getting really bored of some of the radio content available on DAB.
We spent last weekend in the lovely city of York when a friend of ours was doing the Yorkshire marathon. Anyone who knows me will know how excited I was at the prospect of going to the York Roast Co. for one of their famous Yorkie pud wraps.
From a very young age I always wanted to play piano and throughout school, like a lot of children, I jumped from playing the cello, guitar, keyboard and drums. I would take regular lessons, then after a while, didn't have an interest in it any more.
What do you do when you've got a packet of sausages that need using but want something a little tastier than sausage and mash? Returning home yesterday I realised that we also had a tub of red lentils that were in desperate need of being used in something yummy and comforting. So I set to and pulled together a rich and, if I do say do myself, rather delicious casserole.
Having spent three weeks in Florida this Summer, it was obvious that food was going to play a big part of our holiday. Whether we were cooking in our villa, out to a restaurant or getting take out, the wealth of choice over in the States is kind of overwhelming.
My dad turned 70 recently and whilst I wanted to make him a lovely birthday cake, I also wanted to make sure that it was traditional and classic (just like my dad). I had some lemons and half a bag of sultanas leftover, so I thought a lemon and sultana cake would be perfect.
Back in January my little sister turned 16 years old (where has the time gone?). To mark the occasion, I decided to attempt some icing modelling and create a MAC inspired make-up cake.
I don't know about you, but there are some days where I find myself searching for something a little different for breakfast.
