Another one of our secret missions while we were in London was to possibly buy a car, so we spent the morning travelling to the outskirts of the city to take one for a test drive. Afterwards we hea...

Okinomiyaki
Tom came home with some Lego minifigures today and I got a cat lady in mine, while he got a Mexican man in his. I giggled thinking they looked like the future version of us. I've been craving okin...

While we were walking in Morningside today, Tom grabbed my hand and took me off down a side street saying he had something awesome to show me. Assuming I knew the area pretty well, I couldn't imag...

Mum's Birthday
It was my Mum's birthday today and as she's not a huge fan of super sweet cakes, I decided to bake her a rose meringue and black sesame ice cream cake. It tasted delicious and I loved the way it l...

Dad's Birthday
It was my Dad's birthday today and, as he's a Canadian who loves bacon, maple syrup and whiskey, I decided to bake him a maple & whiskey barrel cake filled with bacon flavoured popcorn. Everyo...
