Review // The Cricketers, Ormskirk

Living in Ormskirk more often that not, food-wise, I’m spoilt for choice. With a variety of cute cafes in the town centre specialising in brunch, pubs dotted around the surrounding postal code areas that offer light bites and dinner options and those places in the middle. Which essentially is how I’d categorise The Cricketers. My…

Food // Starting the day with Special K Nourish

Breakfast is a major must for me. I’m an early bird through and through, opting to be at my desk at 8am each morning ready to go. Whilst weekends are a far more relaxed affair with a fry up or eggs on toast on offer, during the week I want something a little healthier. I…

Review // Mowgli, Bold Street, Liverpool

​Mogwli is one of those highly sought-after Bold Street restaurants that you hear so much about but really struggle to get a table at! With a strict ‘no reservations’ policy and an eclectic number of tables inside, I knew it was somewhere I just had to try. On a rainy mid-week evening a friend and…

Recipe // Chicken Peanut Butter Curry

The title of this blog post contains two of my favourite things – peanut butter and curry. To be quite honest with you, I’m surprised I hadn’t made this recipe before! I knew I was in the mood for something filling, hearty and full of flavour, but slightly healthier than a creamy curry. So after a…

Recipe // Lemon and Garlic Roast Potatoes

I’m sure you’ll agree, there’s something rather comforting about a mound of roasties. Whether it’s accompanying a satisfying pub roast lunch or a homemade meal for the family, you can’t go wrong with roast potatoes. However, I must confess something here before we continue…I like to mix my roasts up. Traditional roast dinners aren’t necessarily…

Recipe // Goats Cheese & Red Pepper Pasta

I’m gonna put it out there before I even start this post…I’m totally aware that the only recipes I seem to be posting lately are pasta-based. I think I’ve got a problem. But pasta is amazing. It’s speedy to cook, involves cheese (which is always a winner in my book) and provides lots of variation….

Review // Roja Pinchos, Berry Street, Liverpool

If you’ve been out to the eat in the city recently or had a scroll through Twitter looking for someplace new to try you’ll notice that Liverpool is on the cusp of something great. With so many new restaurants and bars popping up, plus old haunts continuously reinventing their menus, now is a great time to…

Food // Do you enjoy home cooking?

Following a catch-up with the girls earlier this week over a delicious Italian takeaway, (no that doesn’t mean just pizza, we had pasta too!) and a discussion around home cooking and preparing meals, it occurred to me that everyone had a different take on this. For me, it’s how I relax. During the week I…

Review // The Tea Makers Loose Leaf Tea

Many of us require a freshly brewed cup of tea to either start or finish the day, but my kind of proffered tea is often something a little bit different… When The Tea Makers of London got in touch, asking if I’d like to review their latest Darjeeling black teas I decided to give it…
