My Orlando Holiday – A Recap – Part One

Unfortunately dear Reader, I am back from Orlando. Meaning I am back in the cold and gloom of Surrey, which, when compared to the heat and sun of Orlando, leaves a lot to be desired.

Nevertheless I am very much of the opinion that using photos and videos from your vacations, is a great and cathartic way to re-live all of the fun times that you may have had. And I personally, had a lot of fun!

If you’d like to see the holiday in 20-20 vision – check out my vlogs over on my YouTube channel, I vlogged every day of the holiday and am currently uploading them all onto my channel. However I am trying to space them out a bit, don’t want to overrun my channel with vlogs!

So here’s a little (pretty long let’s face it’s probably going to be a two-parter) post that’ll wrap up just about everything I did on my fantastic two-week vacation. Continue reading “My Orlando Holiday – A Recap – Part One”

Pasta Aglio e Olio – A Chef Recipe

Ever since watching the movie ‘Chef’ in the cinema upon its release, I’ve been obsessed with El Jefe’s garlic pasta.

The specific pasta I’m talking about, is the pasta Carl makes for Molly in his apartment. It’s such an amazing scene, and for someone like me, who is all about food and flavour, it was instantly intriguing. Somehow it manages to be a really sensual scene, the sounds, the pictures, the attentiveness is just perfect. It’s probably one of my favourite scenes in the entire movie!

So I decided to give Carl’s Pasta Aglio e Olio a go, and see what would happen – it’s freaking delicious!!

This is enough to make one portion, so double, triple etc. for each person at your table. I’m also not up for portioning your pasta, cook however much you fancy for yourself. I trust you. If you’re not vegan, or vegetarian you could put Parmesan in this too…or if you’re vegetarian, you could add some veggie form of Italian hard cheese.

Polyjuice Potion Pasta – A Wizarding World Recipe

This here is a brand new blog, so please, bare with whilst I get everything in tip-top order and sorted out just how I want it. I decided it was time for some change, and have chosen to experiment with WordPress, as this is a blog format I can see myself supporting for some time. It’s much more photography friendly, less ‘wordy’ if you will? So whilst I’m feeling inspired and have a few days off between switching jobs, I know, it’s all very exciting, and a bit nerve-wracking if you ask me. I thought I’d have a go at re-vamping the blog, ready for 2017 – little did I know it would involve setting up a brand new one – Oops?

Anyway, I’ve been incredibly inspired by the Wizarding World recently, what with the release of the brilliant ‘Fantastic Beasts and where to find them’, and the classic Christmas Harry Potter repeats on TV. I ask you dear reader, how could I not be inspired.

I am currently conjuring up something involving some creepy pea soup *nudge nudge*, but for now, I’m trying to use up some of those pesky Christmas leftovers. I made this pasta tonight, and had Harry in mind, and viola, Polyjuice Potion Pasta was born! It looks gross, but tastes so creamy, decadent and divine, you’ll never go to real cream again.
