Starting summer with Carluccio's

Be honest. When you're deciding where to go out to dinner, it's likely you'll go back to an old favourite. Sometimes asking your partner the question "where shall we go to eat?" is almost quite pointless as you both know where you're going to end up. This is most certainly true of Matt and I. We find comfort in returning to restaurants we have tried and tested, even if the excitement of a new menu is no longer there. I like remembering how much I loved a certain dish and look forward to having it again. After all, nobody likes to be disappointed.

Elounda Blu - a cretan haven

Last year, we were incredibly fortunate to go on several holidays, the common theme however, being that they were all very busy where we were on our feet exploring most of the time. I'm certainly not complaining by any means but this year, we decided that one long holiday where we could spend hours stretching out in the sun was exactly what we needed. For a change, we thought we would wait as long as possible to book to try and get a better price. I managed to wait until April (which is very good for a meticulous planner such as myself) when we booked 10 days in June to go to the beautiful Crete.

BAKING: Terry's Chocolate Orange cheesecake

It's no secret that I love chocolate. Even though I do Slimming World, I always make sure that there is some form of chocolate in my daily diet. No, it's not healthy but it's so good. While I'm not actually a fan of the fruit version, I bloody love a Terry's Chocolate Orange. It's got a bit of a connotation as a Christmas chocolate for whatever reason but thankfully this baby is available all year round. Have you guessed what today's baking post includes yet? My Chocolate Orange Cheesecake is super easy to make and if you take it along to family BBQ as I did, you'll find the whole lot gone in one day. Yep, it's that good.

Since I'm currently on a bit of health kick lately, I've become well accustomed to a homemade salad. As much as I know the economic benefit of making my own, it can all get a bit dull so when Greggs* got in touch and asked if I'd test salads from different retailers for a taste test, I was well on board.

Glamping with Jollydays

You may remember last year I fell completely in love with North Star Club (read here). After we left, as with all good places we tend to visit, it remained on my mind and when I was invited to North Star Club’s sister camp, Jollydays, I didn’t hesitate in jumping at the chance and a date was booked in for May.
