If you love banana loaf and Nutella I assume that you won’t need much convincing to try this super moist Banana & Nutella Bread Loaf. Not only that it’s easy to make, but it also makes use of any leftover bananas in your fruit bowl. My kids seem to hate…

This retro sprinkle tray bake was the trend back in school and one of the highlights of my school days in the UK (yes, really!). I have forgotten how much I loved this cake until my 11-year-old and I started talking about our favourite school desserts. You see, school dinners are…

If you’re a cheesecake fan this recipe is definitely for you! On this post, I will teach you how to make one of our favourite desserts. I can’t really take credit for this as this is my husbands’ recipe that he has used over the years. A creamy and thick…

Even though the calçotada is a long term Catalan tradition, you don’t have to be in Catalonia to enjoy this messy gastronomic gathering! Last weekend was my second calçotada experience with friends here in Valencia. To be honest, I think it’s just an excuse for another get-together, but, I’m not…

Just over a week ago we celebrated my husband’s birthday, with family coming over too, it was a great excuse to try something other than paella! Don’t get me wrong, I like the stuff, but it’s also nice to try something different other than Spanish food once in a while!…

This week has been scorchingly hot. With temperatures reaching up to 38ºc we have been trying all sort to keep refreshed and watered. My six year old had a brilliant idea to make a lemonade stand outside the house. Living in the country is not the best location for his little…

I’m not the one to pass an invitation to go to Valencia City. On Tuesday morning we took to trip to The Central Market, this was my second time (without the kids) so I was looking forward having my own time. Oh, life’s’ little pleasures! But first, the important things.…

It’s bad enough missing the odd proper sausage sandwich and roast dinners from England, but being brought up in the Philippines until the age of 10 I still had the desire for a wide variety of Oriental foods. Large cities in the UK such as London, Manchester, Birmingham and Leeds…

We wanted to do something special for our anniversary as we usually do every year.  Last year was a night spent in, due to the fact that we couldn’t get a baby sitter.  I cooked a meal for both of us, which was a success (candlelit and all) hard to…
