Things that made me smile this February

February seems to have been a bit of a blur and I can hardly believe that it’s pretty much March already. So with that, here’s a few of the things that have made me happy this month. 1. Discovering Meridian crunchy peanut butter and proceeding to spread it on absolutely everything, including the wholewheat bagel above, which I lathered in it. As peanut butters go, this is definitely the best one I’ve ever tried. 2. Having the girls round to my house for pizza and wine after work last Friday. It was so much fun and before we knew it,...

Broccoli and courgette soup

In a bid to save time during the week, I’ve started cooking masses of whatever we have to eat at the weekend. Chilli con carne, curry and stew all freeze really well and means that we can still have healthy home made dinners during the week, no matter how tempting it might be to phone in a Chinese. I also always make a huge pot of soup on a Sunday. I eat soup for lunch most days and I only ever really by shop bought ones as a last resort. This recipe combines two of my favourite vegetables: broccoli and...

Lent

Life has been a little manic recently, hence my lack of posting (all will be revealed soon), but when life does takeover and my posting schedule suffers, I realise just how much I love blogging and how big a part of my life it has become. Reading all of your lovely comments and following your stories is so enjoyable and I really cherish this community I have become part of. So on to today’s post. After eating my body weight in Ferrero Rocher pancakes last night, my mind soon turned to the prospect of what I would give up for Lent...

My 5 favourite French films

  I’m just a little bit obsessed with French cinema. Scratch that, I’m a little bit obsessed with all things French. Food, wine, music, fashion … j’adore la France. With my feet firmly ground in Edinburgh, I need to get my French fix wherever I can find it, and films is one of the easiest ways for me to indulge. I turn watching a French film into an event in my house with either wine and cheese or macarons and café au laits. I think you’re getting the picture, so I’ll get to the point and share my five favourite...

Spinach, green pepper and lime smoothie

I have gone a bit juice and smoothie crazy recently. I’m passing on porridge more days than not in order to get a good shot of greens in me for breakfast. This means that I’m experimenting a lot with different flavour combinations to mix up the nutrients I’m getting. Up until recently, I’ve used my liquidiser to make my smoothies and juices, until the lovely people at Debenhams sent me a Breville Blend Active, an amazing smoothie maker that comes with two portable cups, which makes life so much easier. If you are looking to invest in a smoothie maker,...

Tales from the weekend #5

Saturday was one of those rare days when we woke up super early, got organised and headed out pre-breakfast. To put this into context, ordinarily I take Saturday mornings a little slower. I normally have a bit of a lie in and when I do get up, I make myself a huge pot of coffee and drink my way through most of it whilst I read the papers. Bliss. But yesterday we broke the mould and it was great. First stop, breakfast. We stayed local and went to Clouds & Soil. There was eggs benedict on the menu, so my...
