    Easy Easter Baking Recipes

    I prefer baking over cooking and I prefer Easter over any other holiday so why not combine the two loves and share a couple of easy Easter baking recipes? Hot Cross Bun Muffins I say I love Easter but it’s not till this year that I tried hot cross buns for the first time. My excuse is that we don’t have them in Sweden and that I don’t like raisins in bakes. In the last couple of years, so many new flavours, alongside the original recipe, has launched so even I can enjoy them. I have seen salted caramel and even blueberry hot cross buns but I bought the apple…

  • Shoot the Bull meal deal

    Shoot the Bull in Trinity Kitchen

    Trinity Kitchen* has yet again changed the street food line-up. I went to check them out and absolutely fell in love with Shoot the Bull from Hull. They’re definitely the star of the show this time around. When I read about them it was the sound of their seafood mac n’ cheese and rice balls that I liked the sound of. However, their menu changes depending on location. In Trinity Kitchen, they’ve focused on beef burgers, chips and the Canadian special – poutine. Shoot the Bull Poutine I’ve never had poutine before but I love trying new foods so gave it a go. Poutine is a Canadian dish consisting of…

  • The Deer Park Food

    Dining in Style at The Deer Park in Leeds

    The Deer Park in Leeds has had a refurbish. I’ve not been before so I can’t say how it looked previously but who cares when the new interior is this fabulous?! The Deer Park reopened a couple of weeks ago and prior to that, I was invited to check out how they had done up the place, over tasty food and refreshing cocktails* (of course). The Deer Park Interior Already from the outside you can tell that The Deer Park isn’t your regular local pub. Leading up to the entrance of the grand white building you’re met with an outdoor seating and glassed in patio. Both looking very cosy, especially…

  • Jannuary to March Book Reads

    Books I Read in January to March

    One of my goals this year is to read one book a month. I’m happy to say that so far, I’m on track. The three books I’ve read so far this year are a mix between science fiction, biography and fiction based on a true story. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading all of them so thought I’d share in case you’d be interested in giving them a read yourself. Here are my January to March book reads. The Tattooist of Auschwitz – Heather Morris Last year I saw so many people who I follow on social media shout about this book. I’m a sucker for marketing so this book had me…

  • Eating at Red's True Barbecue

    Meat Feast at Red’s True Barbecue in Leeds

    Let there be meat! I am a meat eater. I love meat and I’m not ashamed of saying it. Meat doesn’t have to feature in every meal I eat but I could never give it up. It’s too tasty! Funnily enough, being a meat eater n’ all, I can’t believe that I’ve never set foot in a Red’s True Barbecue restaurant until this year. Spoiler alert! – I’ll definitely be back. Red’s True Barbecue* kindly invited me and a plus one along to sample some of their new dishes as well as some classics. I was overwhelmed with the massive menu so really happy that someone had already decided what…
