Finkle & Green | Pre-launch Night

I was lucky enough to be invited to Finkle & Green’s pre-launch night last week, and it didn’t disappoint! Finkle & Green is the latest addition to Stockton’s cultural quarter and I think it’s just what was needed, there’s tonnes of micro pubs (that’s not a bad thing) but I think it was lacking in…

Lost Property | Review

I’ve heard of Lost Property before – well I’ve heard of the restaurant that’s kept well hidden. I’ve never visited or really seen it passing through Yarm, I’ve always known it was there but clueless as to where it actually was. So, for my birthday I decided to give it a try after seeing their…

The Franafel Pop-up Kitchen experience

I stumbled across Franafel’s Instagram page after becoming a fan of the band Cattle and Cane quite some time ago. Fran plays the piano in the band, but his Instagram was full of plant based food that looked insane, so of course I’ve followed Franafel ever since. I decided to do Veganuary this year and…

The Waiting Room|Review

The Waiting Room is an award-winning vegetarian restaurant based in Eaglescliffe, for years now I’ve heard so many good reviews and I’ve been meaning to try it and now I have! It was mine and my boyfriends anniversary last week and I’ve decided to do Veganuary and he has decided to go meat free for…

Hope & Union | Review

Hope & Union is an absolute hidden gem tucked away in Stockton’s ‘cultural corner’ it’s a must for anyone who loves great food, gins and cask ales in a funky spot – it ticks all the boxes for me! Hope & Union has been a fave since I first stepped in quite a while ago,…

Glady’s Vintage Tea Room | Review

Another day, another afternoon tea, this time I tried Glady’s Vintage Tea Room in Seaton Carew, Hartlepool and what a find! Seaton may not be the most picturesque beach in the North East, but to be honest it’s one of my favourites probably because it was my childhood beach. But, I’ve never stepped foot in…

G&T Cupcakes

I’m a massive gin lover so when I was asked to make gin and tonic cupcakes it was a huge yes! Before making the cakes, I had already seen a few recipes and images throughout Instagram and to be honest I don’t know why I haven’t made them sooner; I love cake and I love…

Bistrot Pierre | Review

Before Bistrot Pierre opened a restaurant in Middlesbrough I hadn’t actually heard of or visited a Bistrot Pierre, I was surprised it was founded in 1994! So after not knowing its existence I’ve been twice in the space of three days… I’ve heard a few reviews from people that I know and I’ve seen quite…

The Afternoon Tea Battle

I feel like I can class myself as an afternoon tea connoisseur now, so after trying quite a few in the North East I thought I’d share my opinions to make your next afternoon tea an easier decision if you’re in the area that is. I’ve rated each place taking the price into consideration too! 5/5…

Fudge Choc Brownie Lovin’

A few weeks ago, I went away with my bestie’s to a log cabin. Filled with food, drinks, christmas markets and of course a hot tub! One of my friends suggested we baked some brownies, so whilst I chilled watching Bridget Jones’ Diary, the two Emily’s made insanely good brownies! They used Laura In The Kitchen’s…

Basic Cupcake Recipe!

I use this recipe for all my cakes and cupcakes, I just add ingredients to mix up flavours depending on what I’m making. It’s super simple, quick and easy!
