Carrot and courgette veggie fritters recipe

Back at the beginning of April, project garden began. We got the shed delivered, patio laid and then turned our hand to filling our garden with plants. Once we got the first raised bed finished and planted up, I couldn’t wait to turn over even more of our garden to veggies so we got to work expanding our raised bed plot. One of the first things we planted in phase two was a solitary courgette plant. Reading the label it…

Christmas… in August?!

Ahh, it’s that time of year already. Christmas trees, mince pies, gifts from Santa… hold up, what do you mean it’s only August?! No, I’m not crazy I might be getting into the festive spirit a little early, but it’s all in the name of craft! Last weekend, I spent the day at the Trimcraft offices in Nottingham to see a special preview of their 2017 Christmas ranges. Yep, a day full of Christmas crafts. It was awesome. The team really…

DIY raised beds for planting vegetables

I’ve recently become obsessed by gardening… At first, this came as a bit of a surprise. Whilst I’ve always loved cooking and baking (I love turning a bunch of boring ingredients into something delicious), gardening was never something I’ve been interested in. My parents didn’t really garden either – perhaps because my childhood garden was too shady and small. However, despite the lack of green fingers in my immediate family, my grandparents had fruit and veg plots that were always bursting with…

Couple this with the ever-growing popularity of matcha tea, and you’ve got one seriously good drink to enjoy. Now, I’m not normally one for…

A weekend in Loch Lomond (video)

A few weeks ago, I spent a long weekend on the shores of the beautiful Loch Lomond in Scotland. It was incredible! I’ve been to Scotland a few times before, but I’ve mostly stuck to the big cities – so it was a really nice change to explore the countryside and little villages sleeping aids scattered along the way. I went there with a bunch of old school friends of mine. We try and go on a weekend break together…
