January has started nice and slowly for me this year, work is easing itself in which is perfect, I take a while to readjust. I decided to book flights to London for the end of the month weekend break with
Happy New Year!!
Today is the last day of 2017, which of course has gone by in a whirlwind. This year was filled with a lot of firsts and new achievements for us personally and as a company.
I'm excited to see
We've booked our next trip to Asia a couple of months ago!! This time we are arriving in Seoul Korea and departing from Tokyo Japan. We visited Japan in 2015 (previous post shows some images taken during the trip) and
Our first visit to Japan was Spring time 2015, a year and a half later and I'm uploading pictures from the trip, I'd like to say this isn't typical. Part of the reason is because I wasn't sure anyone was
Midweek meals tend to be the recipes I struggle with most. Trying to find the right balance of wholesome, quick and above all else tasty can be a little hard when you are away from work all day. I tend
I have a love/hate relationship with Liquorice. Living in Scandinavia and The Netherlands has made me used to seeing it pop up in unusual mixtures and places. I've become used to eating a general looking sweet and discovering the strong
Another porridge recipe, I know but I just damn well love the stuff. It's so versatile where you can really add anything to it, although I haven't gone savory because that just doesn't look right and we have risotto for
A few years ago while Rob and I were travelling around Finland, we were having breakfast in a quaint cafe around Tampere. I saw these little pies on the display counter and wondered what they were so decided to order
These Kerstkransjes are one of the prettiest Dutch Christmas biscuits out there. I always love making them as the flavour is really buttery and simple but they can double up as a Christmas decoration.
I've used the same cutter as I have
It's December!! I'm so excited for this Christmas, my sister is coming home to Ireland from the states with her husband and her beautiful baby Robin, who I haven't met and squeezed yet. So our Christmas is going from generally small
I bloody love breakfast, I just really don’t understand when people just skip it? Like, how?! The odd thing is, I’m really not a morning person, I love when I actually get up early but the majority of the time
Rob misses quite a bit of Dutch food from time to time, so we like to recreate some of the typical dutch food that you can't get here in Ireland. Sometimes the ingredients can be quite hard or impossible to
Damn, I love making bread. Just that smell and the first slice with a little bit of salty butter is just like no other. Although, I have never attempted to make baguettes until this week it's something that I have
Arlettes. Something I have never heard of or seen before Wednesday nights second episode of great british bake off. I decided to give the technical challenge a go because I have never even heard of them never mind ventured to make
As Rob is Dutch and I am Irish we end up celebrating each others Holidays and traditions, mainly just the fun ones as neither of us are religious or from religious families. December ends up being a busy month for
I tasted a tart in my favourite cafe in one of my favourite cities in Europe last Spring, Helin & Voltaire is a beautiful cafe in the stunning Djurgården park in Stockholm. It was a simple short base with a mixture
Taste of Meath was the first of hopefully many events to follow. It took place last weekend at Oldbridge, Battle of the Boyne Centre in Co.Meath which I didn't even know existed until we arrived on Saturday morning. We were
Kanelbullar should be on the Swedish Flag, they are everywhere! When you arrive at the airport you can even smell them. When I first moved over to Sweden, my friend Martin gave me 20SEK to buy my first cinnamon bun
This was our first visit to Gothenburg/Göteborg, so we didn't really know what to expect when planning our trip. We decided to Couch Surf while we were there (hospitality exchange through social media) so with the help of our hosts
These cardamom yeasted buns are a unique treat for Sweden. They are one of the prettiest things that you can see lined up in a bakery window, all ready for Fika time.
There are a few steps to making these buns,
Rob and I went on a trip to Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö, and Copenhagen last month. It's been a trip that has been on our minds since we met (which was in Stockholm) about 3 years ago. So we finally saved
My mum gave me her recipe for scones while I was living away, i used it quite frequently but since I've come home I've stopped making them as much. I don't know whether it's due to having an overdose of
There's are a small amount of processed foods that don't really taste much better or make a big difference when you make them from scratch at home. Sausage Rolls do NOT follow this rule.
I'm not a sausage roll fan, but
Carrot cake is one of my favourite cakes to make. It's different to most other cakes where the main ingredients are usually milk, eggs, and flour and a dabble of something else. In this cake, the texture from the carrots
