After a fabulous weekend with great friends (M & G) in the Cotswolds, who like us appreciate good food, good ales and good wine it only deserves a few words and photos.

It’s been a while but I’m so exciting about tonight’s dinner success I’m here writing about it. I have tried on many occasions to cook this dish but never with any luck – tonight we had Toad in the Hole…

Inspired by current favourite cook book Mary Berry’s Complete Cookbook, this evening we had a new style Jacket Potato stuffed with Kale and Mozzarella, and is was so delicious I just had to quickly share…

Hello, I know it’s been a long time and I hope you haven’t all missed my posts too much. I know I’ve been slack in posting (life has been busy) but it doesn’t mean I haven’t got some fab food tales to tell, so rather than try to recall correctly all the details from the past month or so I thought I’d post a storyboard of my highlights, I hope you enjoy and feel free to ask any questions…

For those who know me or have read a few of my past posts you’ll know my other passion other than food is running; remember Post Running Wine and Food! and Half Marathon Food & Drink? I am a keen runner and this year I am running a series of races for charity. Well my final race is looming so I thought I’d take the opportunity to write about my Keep On Running Fundraising, the charities I am running for and why they are important to me.

|August is the busiest month of the year for me, hence the lack of blog writing or to be honest anything much other than work! And I can always tell when I have recovered and getting back to my usual self as I find myself in the kitchen and wanting to cook up a storm again!|

Yes I’ve been to my favourite restaurant Memories in North Devon again, now I know you have read (twice) before how much I love this place here and here. So rather than rave on about it again I’m just going to share the photographs from another amazing meal which started with a scrumptious bottle of Champagne!

So I went away to a friends for the weekend in the Cotswolds. With our typical British Summer the weather wasn’t great but I had an amazing weekend. All be it a bit random and unexpected but always in a good and memorable way.

Everyone must have heard of the Channel 4 programme Come Dine With Me, and I expect it’s quite common for groups of friends and family to take part in a similar event. Along with friends from work we decided to hold our own Come Dine With You experience (although we think Come Wine With Me might be more apt!). Everyone would host an evening at their own home with a theme of their choice. It also doesn’t need to be a full three course meal it could just be pizza and a movie. I was the first host….
