Review – Peppermill Bothy

I’ve seen a few posts on various parent pages on Facebook looking for recommendations of places that are good to go with kids for lunch and Peppermill Bothy out by Blairhall is a perfect spot. Eating out with kids is not the easiest thing. Firstly you have the ticking time bomb of how long will…

A new direction

When I started writing this blog my life was a little different. Going out for meals was a leisurely thing, baking was something enjoyable that I did to pass the time. Now I have a 2 (almost 3) year old, meals out are fun but stressful, there’s only so long a 2 year old will…

Cafe Centro Edinburgh – Review

Cafe Centro is by far and away one of my favourite places to get a quick take away lunch when I’m at work. Based on George Street Edinburgh, they do a lovely selection of pastas and pizzas for £3.95. Fantastic value I think you’ll agree. My favourite is the spaghetti  arrabiata (pictured below). It’s pretty spicy…

Dunfermline and West Fife GE2015 – Where do the candidates eat?

My lovely Edinburgh friend writes a fab blog Crumbs and Petals in which she has been outlining where the Edinburgh candidates like to eat and drink. Now in Dunfermline we might not have the same quantity of eateries but I think we can go toe toe with the big City on quality. So I decided to ask our…

Apricot Dunfermline – Review Review

Wow is simply the first thing I would say about Apricot. This is an Indian restaurant with a difference. Fine dining meets Indian food and a welcome addition to Dunfermline. Situated on Carnegie Drive this restaurant is in what used to be Nobles Chinese. Its been through a few transitions and you could be forgiven for thinking…

I know I’ve blogged about Steak and Shake before but… since having little Jessycat I don’t go out for meals as much, let alone in the big smoke that is Edinburgh. So I was delighted when I won a free Steak and Shake via twitter (seriously check our Steak Edinburgh on twitter they run their…

Mark Greenaway – Jam Jar Review

I have been itching to try the Jam Jar dessert at Mark Greenaway’s restaurant for what feels like forever. I’ve seen lots of others tweet and blog of its greatness, so when I went to the restaurant for lunch a few weeks ago I knew what I was having for dessert. Here is is in…

Papercup Glasgow

I’m not a frequent visitor to the West Coast but a few weeks ago the wee one and I went to visit some friends in Glasgow. Along with a visit to the swings at Kelvingrove Park (and an ice cream) we stopped into Papercup for a quick coffee. The welcome was warm and the coffee…

muddy boots

I know this is normally a purely food blog but there will be a mention of cake so please allow me this review of the rather excellent Muddy Boots in Fife. The group of mums and dads that I know were quite excited to go and try out Muddy Boots in Fife. Now that most…

Nonna’s Kitchen Morningside Road

A couple of months ago we won a voucher for Nonna’s Kitchen in a raffle and today we finally got round to using it. I love Italian food and had heard good things about Nonna’s so was very excited.  We arrived at about 1pm and the place was packed. Lots of hussle and bussle but…
