Broad Bean & Pea Salad w/ Zingy Dressing

DSC_0172 DSC_0140Let’s talk about me and my attempt to be fit and healthy. I’m not very good at it. My excuse? Work. The real reason? Lack of motivation/pizza. All the pizza. But also, kinda work. Since coming back from Kenya, on a number of occasions I have said “I don’t feel right in my body”. Meaning, my bod needs some fruit, veg and vitamins and such. My heart rate needs to be raised a little. And unfortunately the increase in heart rate caused by the anticipation of watching the dominos pizza tracker probably doesn’t count as “cardio”. I wish. I know the root of the problem is me. But I am about to launch an attack on Social Media….

Raspberry & Orange Blossom Lemon Drizzle Cake

DSC_0186 DSC_0182I am off to Kenya today. It seems the only time I actually find to blog is right before I am about to go away somewhere. Last time it was Glastonbury. I was going to share photos of what I ate but I somehow only managed to take 2 photos both of which are of things I ate and shared with you last year. D’oh. So let’s just say I ate a lot of good food at Glastonbury and some not so great food. My favourite vendors were; Buddha Bowl, Tea & Toast, The Cheese Truck and The Hippy Chippy. If you see any of these guys at festivals you go to, hit ’em up!

(So I’ve actually been to Kenya and come back since I began writing this post. Whoops)

Blueberry Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread

DSC_0043 DSC_0037I have been wanting to make this pull- apart bread for a long while now. I came up with my version of the recipe (I adapted Joy the Bakers) and wrote it down in my wee recipe book maybe a year ago. I tried to make it last time I was home but the dough was left out over night so the yeast went cray and the dough was done for. I think maybe, just maybe, this is up there with my favourite, non-cake, sweet treats. You know that anything with cinnamon is going to taste good right?
