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…

Mark Greenaway – Jam Jar Review

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….

Review – Chop Chop in Leith Edinburgh

As new parents we probably don’t go out for dinner as much as we once did. So when the opportunity to go and try out Chop Chop in Leith, and take the wee one with us, came along we jumped at the chance. I’ve only heard good things about Chop Chop and was intrigued to…

Edinburgh Foodies Festival – Win Win Win

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I love the Foodies Festival, I really can’t express how much I love it. A day out wandering around food stalls, tasting, eating and spending time with good friends, what’s not to love. I’ve gone to the Foodies Festival the past two years at Inverleith Park but the festival started…

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…
