My favourite podcasts

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.


Our York(ie) adventure

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.

Returning to piano

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.

Sausage and red lentil casserole

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.

Floridian foodie

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.

Lemon and sultana cake

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.

House Style – Chatsworth

On Tuesday last week, my Mum, my sister and I went along to Chatsworth House for their House Style exhibit. Showcasing over five centuries of fashion, we got to see clothing, jewellery, art and much more which catapulted you back decades.
