Coffee: The Flower Cup - Watergate Row, Chester

Holy Guacamole - guacamole, bacon and cheese grilled sandwich - £5.50

If you've been following our blog for a while now, you'd know that we appreciate and support those cute little independent coffee shops. We feel like we hadn't been to one in a while, so we wanted to take advantage of the fact that we were in Chester.


Review: Picnic Essentials

I know what you're thinking, a picnic at the end of September? Who on Earth would do that? Well last year, we proved that having a panic doesn't always mean going to a park on a sunny day. Picnics can be done in your own garden, in your room, off peak zoo times, anywhere that tickles your fancy to be honest.

Okay, I know we called this post picnic essentials, we all know about the sandwiches, juices and apples, but we're on about the good stuff: chocolate, fizzy drinks and sweet treats!

Doisy & Dam Chocolate*

This chocolate brand is definitely the greatest alternative for healthier treat to add to your picnic. The many different ranges of flavour, many free-from choices and healthy ingredients. I, Jessica, am not the biggest fan of dark chocolate but the unique ingredients have made it all the difference.



Under 30: Baked Gnocchi with Peas & Beans (v)

Makes: 4 | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 15 mins

Returning from our travels, one of the question most people have asked is if we're sad to be back. Of course we'd rather be travelling around the world, but that costs a lot of money and nothing beats cheap and hearty home cooked dishes.


Breakfast: Fluffy Blueberry Pancakes

Makes: 6/8 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 10 mins

Throughout the year we haven't had many chances to have breakfast dishes in bed, but with recent circumstances it has opened many opportunities to create some fun dishes for each other and so we are kicking off this little segment with the fluffiest pancakes I've ever made.


Anniversary: Sushi Samba - Heron Tower, London

Saturday 16th September 2016 marked 3 years of our relationship and of course, we just had to celebrate in style. There are many places in the world we want to eat and if you've read our post on where we would eat if we won the lottery, you'd know that Sushi Samba was on that list.



Review: Letter Box Anniversary Cake

It's our three year anniversary and what does every celebration need... cake!!



Restaurant: Sakagura London - Mayfair, London

Heddon Street - a haven of fantastic restaurants and bars nestled behind the bustling and frantic Regent Street in Central London. It is home to Piccolino, the Ice Bar, and perhaps more interestingly, Sakagura. Here they serve up the most delicious and high quality Japanese barbecue you could hope for... or in fact they don't... you, the guests do!


No Bake: Banoffee Cheesecake

Before we set off on our travels, I, Jessica, had made this Banoffee Cheesecake for my mum's birthday. We posted this on twitter and a lot of you wanted to see a post on how we created this beauty. Although it may be a few month late, but it's better late than never right? Plus, anytime is the best time for any type of cheesecake!


Restaurant: The Alchemist - St John's Street, Chester

Jessica - Smashed Avocado & Poached Eggs with Bacon - £9.50

Rewind to last summer, and we were at the opening of Liverpool's newest bar and restaurant, The Alchemist. We were blown away by their unique cocktails and delicious menu, and have been craving to return ever since. When we found out a few months ago that they would be opening in my, James' home city of Chester, we were absolutely delighted and took the first opportunity to get down there for brunch. 


Under 30: Steak Taco Dogs

Makes: 4 | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 10 mins

In the middle of this month the football season had begun once again. Yay for James but boo for Jessica. Don't get me wrong, it's not terrible, I can tolerate it but the only thing that keeps me going is the food. Usually when we're watching, it's in a bar or somewhere for me to have typical pub/bar food, but with this season starting at home, there was only one thing for it. Hot dogs and beer!
