Homemade Elderflower Cordial

Hello friends! I have long harboured dreams of living the perfect ‘Good Life’; growing my own fruit and vegetables and creating delicious jams and chutneys using the fruits of my labour. The truth, however, is that I can just about keep shop-bought herbs alive on my kitchen window sill! The good news? You don’t even […]

Chocolate Chip, Hazelnut and Raisin Flapjacks

If you’ve got 30 minutes to spare this weekend you should give this super tasty recipe a go! I love oats but at this time of the year its a bit warm for porridge so I find flapjacks a great alternative breakfast snack. They’re also a lovely treat with a cup of tea! To make […]

Your weekend cocktail-my homage to Brazil 2014

So…the World Cup is over.  I have to be honest, I don’t really care.  I watched a bit of a few of the games-pathetic eh? But when it came to the final when I was on holiday in Donegal, I was all over it.  Well, in as much as I thought I would celebrate with […]

Double Chocolate Popcorn

Happy weekend everyone! I am an absolute popcorn fiend and this little snack is a great weekend treat. It’s super sweet, easy peasy and the perfect accompaniment for those rainy weekend afternoons spent feeding your latest boxset addiction (I’ve just finished ‘Orange is the New Black and am looking for a new one; suggestions welcome!!), […]

Strawberry and Lemon Summer Mocktail

There is nothing I enjoy more than a fresh fruity cocktail on a summers day, but for now I have have to hold off on the alcohol as I’m having a baby so I decided to come up with a tasty alcohol free version. I’m into lemon flavoured things at the minute and I love […]

Here Comes the Summer!

It’s June and Summer has officially started in our part of the world, so I thought it was time for another Peach Parade playlist! Summer for me conjures up some great (if a little hazy) memories of long student summers when all three Peach Parade ladies lived together.  They were filled with festivals, long afternoons […]

St. George’s Market

Belfast is a brilliant city to live in.  It has plenty of culture and history if that’s your thing, it’s bursting with new places to eat and the people here don’t take things too seriously (well, apart from the obvious!). It’s also pretty compact, meaning that if you’re new to the city or just have plenty […]

New York is without doubt my favourite city in the world and last month I was lucky enough to spend 5 amazing days there with my Mum. I have been to New York several times before but this trip was extra special as it was my Mum’s first time there and we got to retrace […]
