Vine Post: Aubergine Bake

This recipe may not be the prettiest, but I can assure you that this aubergine bake tastes AMAZING. What’s more, it’s so low in calories you could eat it all day long and barely see the difference. 

I’m not always an aubergine fan, but there’s something about chopped tomatoes and cheese that makes everything better. Here’s the Vine so you can see how we made it, and be sure to scroll down for the recipe! read more

All Star Lanes – Goats Cheese Stack

On a recent trip in the Brick Lane area, the pull of All Star Lanes was too much to resist. This glorious little slice of London is a bowling alley, karoake bar, and American-style diner all in one, and it’s definitely right up my alley (ha!).

Vine Post: Hello Fresh Too Tasty Beetroot and Lentil Salad

Hello Fresh Too Tasty Beetroot and Lentil Salad

We’re on to our third and final Hello Fresh week, featuring the meals we had in our free starter box. If you’re looking to try it yourself and get a discount, there’s some money off lurking in that link! Meanwhile, let’s take a look at the last meal, what it was like, and whether we liked it or not. This was the Too Tasty beetroot and lentil salad, and I have to say it’s not something I would have tried myself. I hate walnuts and salad is never a word that makes me feel hungry – I’d rather have a wrap and pretend it’s a full-blown meal rather than a salad in disguise, but we followed the recipe and we had a big surprise. read more

Byron Grilled Portobello Mushroom and Goat’s Cheese Burger

Recently we headed to a branch of Byrons in the Strand area of London. They have two options for veggie burgers on the menu, so I opted for the “Grilled Portobello Mushroom and Goat’s Cheese Burger” served with “roasted red pepper, baby spinach, tomato, red onion and aioli” (taken from the menu). It’s a little disappointing that they don’t have a speciality veggie burger, or at least a few options. If they market themselves as a burger place, you might expect that they would provide alternatives. This is certainly the case in other burger joints that I’ve been to. read more
