Review of Tortilla Nottingham

Mexican style food is one of my favourite cuisines - tacos, tortillas, quesadillas, burritos I love em all! And luckily for me Nottingham has seen a few new Mexican restaurants open up recently.

Me and the boys were recently invited to try out one of these new additions to the Nottingham food scene - Tortilla in Victoria Centre. Situated alongside Millies Cookies (c'mon we all know where they are right?!). Tortilla is a chain restaurant specialising in Californian burritos and tacos.

Starting to run

As a non-driver, I spend a LOT of my time on public transport. I take the tram to work everyday and as long as I have my Spotify or a book to entertain me then I'm a happy traveller!

Mini Egg Brownie Cookies

Creme Eggs get all the attention at Easter, but then who can resist those gooey centres when they're drizzled over a cheesecake or brownie? Not me anyway.

But I have a soft spot for Mini Eggs. When I could eat dairy, I could easily demolish an entire bag in one sitting and I don't think I'm alone in this confession...

Things you're gonna love - in Notts!

There are soooo many things I could include in this round up today, but I'm limiting myself to just 3 of my favourite things from recent weeks. So in no particular order...

Review of Thaikhun Nottingham

 A few weeks ago, the lovely people at Thaikhun in Nottingham invited myself and the kids along to try our their kids menu. Now I'll be honest, I'd eaten there before with a friend and I never knew they catered for kids, so this was a pleasant surprise!

As a lover of Thai food, I was really eager to take the kids along for their first Thai meal but I was concerned they wouldn't like the style of food. After a quick look at the kids menu I knew they'd be fine as it seemed quite kiddie friendly, if a little limited.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches

I'm not a big sandwich eater, there's something about a mysterious filling that makes me nervous. Even when I make it myself, I still inspect every bite before consumption. I put it down to a long forgotten bad experience...

But these sandwiches are right up my alley! Chocolate Chip Cookies filled with creamy buttercream - what's not to love?

Hep C-ya!

Well this is a post I never thought I'd get the chance to write! Friends, relatives and regular readers of my blog will already know that my Mum passed away from Hepatitis C in 2003, and subsequently I was diagnosed with it in 2004. That's the back story anyway.

2016 - Let's do this!

Goodbye 2015, and Hello 2016! Last year ended with a unexpected bump, but I can honestly admit that I'm utterly looking forward to 2016 and all the adventures it brings!

I have lots of exciting things already lined up for this year starting with a crocheting class at the Craft Studio in Nottingham. Now that might not sound exciting to you, but the idea of taking on a NEW non-cake related hobby sounds like bliss to me! They have lots of other fab looking courses so no doubt I'll be finding lots of new hobbies this year.
