    Go Large: Fluffy American Pancakes Recipe

    It’s February 12th, a marker of my one year anniversary as a freelancer. To celebrate this momentous occasion, I’m cooking exactly the same recipe as I did last year – a stack full of deliciously fluffy American pancakes. They are stupidly easy to make and can be created using your standard kitchen cupboard ingredients. The overall process takes around 10 minutes to prep, and around 15 minutes to cook, including the bacon. Veggie options can be added if needed. This recipe can easily feed up to four people. OR one person if you like breakfast. So let’s get to it. What You Will Need 3 large eggs200g self-raising flour1 tbsp…

    2019 New Menu: Chung Ying Central – Birmingham

    I was invited to Chung Ying Central to sample their new menu and give open and honest feedback. All food and drinks were complementary. Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of sitting at a fair few ‘Captain’s Table’ food events across Birmingham. If you’re not familiar with the term, it usually means sitting at the ‘head table’ in the restaurant where the chef comes out and tells you more about their new pickings and what they have to offer. Being a blogger has its perks, obviously. After closing for a short period of time over Christmas, their recent January opening showcased new menu items and I can happily say,…

    Eat Like An Italian In Your Own Home: Pasta Evangelists Recipe Box Review

    This post is sponsored by Pasta Evangelists. As a lover of carbs and all things pasta based (more so anything delicious and Italian!) this week I’m sharing with you a great recipe box I was sent from Pasta Evangelists. Not heard of them before? They’re a UK based company who pride themselves on producing the ‘best fresh pasta and sauces to customers all across the UK’ – with much of their produce sourced from Italy but made here on our doorstep.

    Welcome to 2019: Freelance Work Update, A Trip To London and New Partnership

    With what feels like 10,000+ unpublished photographs currently sitting on my phone, I thought now would be the perfect time to write a little ‘life lately’ style post and to tell you a bit more about an exciting working partnership I’m now involved in. In case you missed it (or if you’re hungry!) my first post of 2019 consisted of a Foodie Escape – Some Of The Best Places To Eat In Birmingham. But first, let’s take a moment to rewind to the first week of January, a recent hotel stay in Brum town and trip to London. Malmaison Birmingham On 2nd January, Josh and I celebrated 12 years of…
