Hove Place Bistro Pub & Gardens

IMG_9581I was definitely not expecting to find this little gem on a side street off Church Road. Yes, the first time I went to Hove Place was totally by chance and I definitely don’t regret it!  I’ve been there more times now and to say it’s amazing is an understatement.

Before I go over why I think it’s so good I want to apologise for the low quality pictures but it was quite dark and my camera has gone funny lately (if anyone is a Canon pro and can help me with aperture – contact me!).

So, back to Hove Place. This pub actually doesn’t feel like a pub at all and has an amazing bistro feel. The music is also very pleasant and the staff is extremely friendly.

Sunday Pleasures: Healthy Carrot Muffins

12540543_10153437116652198_4239283496825013182_nA few days ago I saw this amazing carrot muffin recipe and I decided I had to try it. These muffins taste incredibly good even though they have no sugar in them (just a little bit sprinkled on top)! They’re made with carrots and honey and you can easily eat 4 in a row (not that I did that…).

I used regular wholemeal flower as opposed to white wholemeal flower and honey as opposed to maple syrup so the muffins turned out a lot browner than the ones in Cookie & Kate. They still tasted really good though so whichever you try, you will love it! This recipe takes 15mins to prepare and about 30mins to cook.

Breakfast at Cafe Motu

IMG_9082Today I woke up craving an English breakfast.

I know, I know. Fry-ups are totally unhealthy and very against my 2016 healthy eating goal. I really wanted eggs though. And bacon…I really felt like eating bacon. It doesn’t help that my fella is as much of a food lover as I am (can I blame it on him please??).

Anyway, we finally managed to roll out of bed and head to town with our friend. The sun was out so I took a few shots in the Lanes, one of my favourite places in Brighton. Continue reading

Greenberry Cafe, London

greeberrycafe1Yesterday I decided to spend the day in London and try out a cafe I’ve heard very good things about – the Greenberry Cafe, right in the heart of Primrose hill. I have to say I wasn’t disappointed and even though we had to walk for what seemed like an eternity in the rain (it was more like 15 minutes but it seemed like so much more I swear) it was worth it.

First things first, when we got to London the sun was shining and (of course) we couldn’t resist taking some cliche pictures, even though I’ve been to London a billion times. London is always London though and you know how much I love photos.

Afternoon tea in Terre a Terre

IMG_7656I think it’s safe to say I love anything that involves cake, tarts, muffins or anything sweet. Well today I decided to try out Terre a Terre’s afternoon tea with the lovely Jordan from Just Jawwie.

The one thing that beats having afternoon tea is having afternoon tea with a fellow blogger! That awkward feeling you might get when taking loads of pictures in a cafe simply vanishes when there’s two of you doing it! Thank you Jordan *.*

So, Terre a Terre – it was created in 1993 and is now one of the most successful vegetarian restaurants in the UK. It’s very welcoming and cozy and besides their delicious meals and tea they offer a full range of products you can buy like jams, nibbles, chutneys, etc.

Sunday Pleasures: Chocolate Cake

chocolate cakeOnce again my internet failed me this weekend – seriously guys it is getting on my nerves! I have started looking at other internet providers because the one I’m with at the moment (Talk Talk) is the worst I have ever been with. Saying that, does anyone have any suggestions on a good internet provider that doesn’t stop working for whole days/weeks? If you do please let me know in the comments below!

So yesterday was a pretty lazy day (love them!) – I had a couple of friends over and we spent the day watching movies and baking (what else could you want? haha). We made a chocolate fudge cake which turned out pretty good so the recipe must be shared as usual!

Sunday pleasures: Mini Trifles in a glass

trifleI was supposed to post this yesterday but I had no internet for the whole weekend! It was driving me mad and I had to call my internet provider like 4 times! It is now finally working *yay* and I can share with you the quickest and easiest recipe ever!

These glasses of pure deliciousness take around 5minutes to make (if you don’t make the sponge cake/madeira cake yourself) and they make a yummy dessert. I bought my sponge cake at Asda and it worked perfectly but if you like you can make your own sponge cake and add it the same way, it will only take a bit longer.
