Sneaky Sweet Treats

I got home last night and I wanted something sweet – recently I have been thinking about how I can make treats that are relatively quick and easy to put together that could give me the sweet taste I was looking for. I have always had a sweet tooth and I don’t think this is about…

Meringue and Cream Shells

Meringue and cream are 2 of the things that my nan loves. Whilst they are certainly not a healthy treat it makes it more likely that she will eat and I have to agree with her that at her age she can eat what the hell she wants, and if it so happens to include a lot of sweet…

Portlet Bay Cafe

13 04 2016 First things first it was a lovely day perfect calm weather and I was reminded how lucky I am to live in Jersey on the walk down to the cafe ! The second thing was the food was great … A selection of pizzas is avaliable all the bases are made on site…

Bedtime cookies

Bedtime cookies – oat , cacoa nib and sultana – they were pretty good I can tell you ! The smell whilst they were baking wasn’t bad either ! #detox #cleaneating #bedtimesnack #yummyinmytummy #whatveganseat #baking #eatcleantrainmean #education #foodporn #goodfood #healthy #instagram #jersey2016 #plantbased #snack #whatvegetarianseat

Cafe Jacs

Café Jacs 04 05 2016 So out for dinner with my bestie and I have to admit we ventured here a few weeks ago and liked it so much we have gone back again! I love the fact that everything is obviously prepared fresh here – it shines through all the food.  The choice is…

Raw “Mayonnaise”

I had an obsession with Mayonnaise – I say had because I have it occasionally now but very rarely if I am out,  whereas I used to have it with everything! With all the changes I was making about a year ago I knew that I could not carry on eating it in the volumes…

Big Vern’s – Jersey

16 04 2016 Early dinner at  Big Vern’s Jersey and beautiful weather to go with it ! It was a great end to a busy day in the kitchen playing around… as it was lovely outside so headed out West for a walk and as always I was hungry. Few items on the menu which are of…

The First Dinner

So this evening it was Rainbow Trout with stir fried Jersey Royals ( it would be rude not to they are so tasty at the moment especially the ones from L’Etacq ) with mushrooms and tenderstem brocilli – nothing fancy, just fresh food full of flavour. To follow I made a simple dish of Vanilla…

Weight Loss Mission

Not for me but for my Dad. It has been an ongoing battle for years now and the opportunity to tackle it has arisen ! My brother is away for 3 weeks and that means the fridge can be emptied of all temptation and I am going to cook for mum and dad during the…

Not Resses ! Peanut Butter & Chocolate Heaven

So where do I start – I hated penanut butter up until about 18 months ago – the only way I would eat it was if I amde satay sauce – aside from that you could keep the stuff yuck ! However over time my taste buds are chaning and I have to admit I…

Reviews

I always like to hear what other people have to say about places they have been so its only fair that I share too , and it seems to make a lot more sense that keeping it all to myself! When I was younger I always used to ask for a copy of the menu wherever…

Chocolate Brownie Trials

It’s chocolate brownie time or at least it was on Thursday … They have now all gone and seems I have not lost my touch 😃 the only thing is new oven timing is a long way away from what I was used to so will have to test all my recepies and amend them…
