I'm Going on an Adventure

For a while now I've had a bit of a secret that I've been desperate to share, but I've been biding my time whilst I've got my head around it. However, I've decided that I can now finally tell you my exciting news! Drum roll please....

Pumpkin Soup

Another pumpkin post! Just to warn you, there will probably be a lot of these...

Pumpkin Pie

Autumn is a time for all things pumpkin. Except for the pumpkin risotto I ate at Prezzo a couple of weeks ago, my experience of eating and baking with pumpkin doesn't extend that far. Halloween seemed to fly past this year, so much so that I didn't even have time to carve my white pumpkin (who else is loving these ghostly pumpkins? I think I may even prefer them to the standard orange ones!). So rather than wasting this beastie, I decided to try some pumpkin bakes for the first time. First up, of course it had to be pumpkin pie!

Candle Jar Makeover

Candles that already come in glass jars are a pretty addition to any room, but once the candle burns out I am always left with a not-so-pretty, waxy, smoke-stained jar that no longer serves any purpose. I am then faced with the dilemma: do I keep said messy jar, or do I toss it in the bin? Most of the time, my recycling habits kick in just as I think of throwing it out, and I end up left with numerous waxy glass jars stored away with no idea what to do with them.

Rainy Day Date

After a delicious and filling brunch at Joe's Kitchen (read the post here), Reiss and I headed out into the rain for our adventure-filled day at ZSL London Zoo! We didn't let the rain dampen our spirits though, as a rainy Monday meant an empty zoo, leaving us free to roam around without the queues. Although a lot of enclosures in the zoo are currently under reconstruction for 2016, including the lion exhibit, there's still plenty to see, from slow lorises and aye-ayes to adorable baby gorillas!

Spooky Gingerbread Biscuits

Happy Halloween! Okay okay, so I may be a day late, but hey, I've got my excuses! I didn't even have time to carve a pumpkin and my fancy dress was below par. My Halloween game was just not on point this year. I do apologise. Will some spooky gingerbread biscuits make it up to you? Maybe? Well here you go then...
