The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook and Cinnamon Toast Cake

I love to see that so many amazing bloggers are writing cookbooks – blogging is a chance to continue to improve your writing, test new recipes, find the perfect lighting set up in your kitchen.  It’s a chance to flex some creative muscles that aren’t necessarily present in other parts of our lives.  And for […]

Review: The White Dog Cafe, Philadelphia

As a food blogger, I probably have a slightly different view of being a “foodie.”  So when, on a trip to Philadelphia to meet family friends, they told me that the White Dog Cafe was a foodie kind of place, I was envisioning something like El Bulli!  But what they meant was that it was […]

Tanya Bakes and Chocolate Chip Shortbread

I am a bit of a nerd.  This I definitely know.  I was probably doomed from the age of 5, at which point Star Trek became my favourite TV show.  I had my own uniform and communicator.  I have strong views about the political system of Star Wars.  My biggest regret from my wedding is […]

Byron Cookbook and Courgette Fries

Food Tours in Athens

I’ve been in Europe for years and years now, but it can still be difficult to remember that London isn’t that far away from so many interesting places.  Not to mention that it can be easy to be stuck in the now, rather than planning all the places we’d like to go. Athens has been […]
