Fabulous Foodies Festival

It’s almost that time of year again when the Foodies Festival comes to Edinburgh. I love the Foodies Festival mostly because it’s one of the few festivally things that I get to do these days now that I don’t live in the City anymore. It was a bit rainy last year so I’m hoping for…

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…

A Steak and Shake

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…

Fife Baking Club

I was so excited about Fife Baking Club this month. I’ve not been able to go to the last few meetings as I don’t get home in time but a change in circumstance means that I can now make Baking Club again. There’s no strict theme with our club literally just bake something and come…

Super chocolatey pancake topping!

I love pancakes, proper Scottish drop scones are my favourite. This is a proper indulgent topping. Really rich and chocolatey. It does take a while for it to thicken properly , but it’s worth it.  You could add a splash of cream to make it slightly less chocolatey. If you decided to do that wait…

Yummy Cappuccino Cake

It’s that terrible time of year where at least one person you know has the cold or the flu. Having a small person in the house makes us a bit more susceptible to bugs. Last week I ended up with some sort of flu/ cold bug and felt awful for it. All I wanted was…

Christmas Memories and #SocialMediaSanta

A slight variation on my normal blogging, please help a homeless child this Christmas and share your Christmas memories with @RelScot Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year. Everything is sparkly and there’s that hint of something magical in the air. Of course now that I’m a mummy Christmas is about creating…

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…

Aye Love Real Food , Scotch Eggs

Ages and ages ago I tried one of Aye Love Real Food’s Black Pudding Scotch Egg’s and I meant to write a review and I forgot. How long does baby brain last for? Anyway they have a stall at the Locomotive Market in Edinburgh Waverley Station on a Friday where they sell their very yummy Scotch Eggs….
