Decadent Breakfast – Tweaked Eggs Benedict with Spinach

by James December 12, 2010

I went out for some supplies last week to keep an ill and snowed-in Sarah happy.  Eggs Benedict were requested, but this was the result of a trip to Migros and the contents of the fridge.  Wonderfully decadent and rich, this was a great start to the day. To make, you’ll need the following: 1 [...]

Most of them are too rude or too copyrighted to ever post on here but I have found an adorable sight that you can print some wrapping paper for free this Christmas – I expect everyone’s gifts to be wrapped in it!

Italian Road Trip Part 2: Venice

by Sarah August 15, 2010

So what were the Venice highlights? Certainly not the amount of people wandering the streets, the crammed public boats (that we soon stopped taking in favour of our lovely hotel shuttle) or one very overpriced, quite rubbish dinner… Instead they were… The view from our hotel room (Hotel Molino Stucky)… The best salad I have [...]
