To be honest, when I got a NUTRIBULLET*, I thought I’d make a couple of smoothies and it would go in the cupboard to die. You know, like the rest of the crazy fads we all own; the toastie maker which is great till you have to clean it, the random popcorn maker you got one Christmas because you’re “difficult to buy for” and the good old cafetiere that no one has time for. Because hello kettle!
I didn’t expect that for the past month, J and I would actually be using it every day!
I always thought kedgeree was difficult to make. Of course, when I was younger, I didn’t actually know what it was. I just knew that it tasted good. When I found out it was just fish and rice, with some fragrant spices thrown in, I figured I’d give it a whirl.
Wafflemeister* is Brighton’s newest (and family-run franchise) delight; selling sweet and savoury waffles and crepes along with a healthy dose of gelato. Situated at the top of West Street, it’s perfect for tourists heading down to the beach or locals wanting to refresh after a hard morning’s shopping.
I went down to the opening to check it out with some other bloggers and press and damn they put on a good spread!
Well that was a rollercoaster of excitement, food, alcohol, excitement, more food, friends, laughter and goodies!
On Thursday 25th August, I travelled from Brighton to Manchester with Jess (from Jess and Josh Cook) for the first official Girl Gang event, organised by Jemma (Dorkface).
Since trying courgetti spaghetti at Bella Italia, I’ve been dying to make my own. So when Savisto* got in touch and asked if I wanted to test out one of their kitchens gadgets, I knew it had to be the Spiralizer.
I love Lyndsay (Fizzy Peaches). She invites me to food places. That’s my kind of friend. When she invited me to try out the new Mod Pizza* at Brighton Marina and I couldn’t say yes fast enough.
I headed down last Monday and met up with Aine (Honestly Aine), Carrie (One Pleasant Day) and Lauren (Belle du Brighton). Once inside, we met Ange and Ryan as well for an evening of fun and food.
This is one of my newest favourite recipes; mostly because it takes so little time to do and it tastes absolutely amazing!!
Two weeks ago I met up with the brilliant Aine (Honestly Aine) in London and we made our way to the Danubis Hotel in Regent’s Park for the Big Blogger Expo 2016. (Although we obviously stopped at 221B Baker Street too, because it would be rude not to!)
The Big Blogger Expo was set up by Lauren from Blonde Vision (who also runs Ldnmeetup) and it’s a great way to network with brands and bloggers.
Nestled in the heart of Duke Street in Brighton is, if I’m being completely honest, a place I’d never paid much attention to before; No32. It always used to look pretty daunting and I thought it would be ridiculously expensive, so when Yelp Brighton invited me to their burger event, I went down to see if they could change my mind about the place.
I had loads of blog post ideas for this week, but ran out of time to write any. So while I was about to make dinner, inspiration struck; I could blog about it! Crisis well and truly averted. And luckily for me, it was quick, easy and tasted amazing! (And yes, I know my presentation is a bit, well, shit, but I’m not exactly applying for Masterchef! :D)
