Courgette Pasta

There's something new in the food world. 

Courgette noodles, or coodles, are taking the world by storm. My entire Pinterest has been covered in pictures of this delicious goodness, and finally I decided to give it a go.

Eggs Florentine

Since working late's, I am addicted to having a big proper breakfast. My favourite thing to tuck into whilst in bed with a nice cup of tea is Eggs Florentine. It's so good for you as it provides a nice bit of protein with a big punch of iron. I think people do not like to attempt it due to the hollandaise sauce, which can be tricky, but once mastered you will be whipping up this treat in no time!

Granted, it doesn't always happen after a drunken night out; but something has made me realise as I entered my mid twenties that if I do not start looking after my skin now, I am going to regret it in a few years to come.

An Englishman, An Irishman, A Frenchman and A Scots(wo)man Went To Dinner

Sounds like the beginning of a long- winded joke but that was honestly who was sat with me around the dinner table this Saturday evening just gone. We have moi the Scotsman (I was born in Inverness so it counts!), my boyfriend the Englishman, Rudy the Frenchman (from Dijon, which as blonde as it sounds, is where the mustard gets its name from!?!) and Damian the true- blooded Irishman.
