Triathlon World Championships – Chicago 2015

So this is a well overdue post – I apologise it’s been well over a month since I last wrote a thing! I can only blame spending to much time eating, baking, “recovering” and probably enjoying myself a little too much. But I think a month is enough, it’s time to get back to real…

Banana Oat Bars

I often have overripe bananas left over from the weeks shopping and I usually end up making banana bread but in my recent (failed) efforts to cut down on cake before I head to Chicago for the World Champs (I leave in 4 days…..ahhh), I thought I should create something slightly more healthy with them….

The Liebster Award

It is with great pleasure that I can say that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by one of my FAVOURITE bloggers, creator and eater of the most delicious looking breakfasts and co-founder of Band of Bakers – Gemma from More Than Just Toast. The Liebster Award is passed from blogger to blogger as a way…

Justin Gellatly’s Chocolate Brownies

I’m telling you now I have never in my life had a better brownie than these. I realise that’s a rather bold claim but I genuinely think i’d be hard pushed to either make or find something as good. I’ve been meaning to make a trip to the Bread Ahead stall in Borough Market for a…

Summer Success 2015

Well I don’t like to wish the summer away but with September on its way and the World Championships in Chicago creeping ever closer I thought i’d give a little summary of the amazing summer of racing and cycling that i’ve had in preparation for it! After qualifying for the World Championships in May I had…

Banana & Strawberry Breakfast Muffins

It’s not very often that we have left over bananas that have gone brown by the end of the week but whenever we do it’s the perfect excuse for me to make banana bread. Check out my banana bread recipe with coffee butter🙂 This time I thought i’d try something a bit more exotic and…

Healthy Rhubarb & Strawberry Summer Dessert

I hadn’t planned this recipe at all, it was one of those throw together left over items in the fridge kind of pudding but it turned out to be completely and utterly delicious so I just had to share it! It also only took 15 minutes to make and it could make a very yummy…

Lime and Mint Friands with Mojito Buttercream

Ahhhh summer. I believe summer may have finally arrived here in London wahhooooo! I’ve got lots of exciting events and holidays lined up for summer – starting with a trip to San Sebastian in Spain….TOMORROW. San Sebastian is total foodie heaven and I cannot wait to feast on pinxtos and wine for 4 solid days. I’m…

Breakfast – Porridge

Ok I know no one needs a recipe to make porridge but I get so many people asking me about what I eat for breakfast and also so many people lacking inspiration for a healthy but filling breakfast. So to solve both those problems, here is my porridge post for you all🙂 Porridge has truly…

Qualifying for the Triathlon World Championships!

Apologies to my cake and foodie followers I’ve got another triathlon post but that’s because it’s really really exciting news….I’ve qualified to represent GB at the Age-Group World Sprint Triathlon Championships in Chicago! It’s something I’ve had my eye on for a while now and managing to just about keep my injury prone body relatively healthy…

My First Triathlon

What better way to kick off my first post on my triathlon page than with a post about my first triathlon? Whilst this was a year and a half ago now I thought it would still be useful for any beginner triathletes out there to have an idea about what another athletes first race was…

PB&J Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes

The first time I ever came across PB&J was on a family holiday to Texas when I was 9 years old. At that time the PB&J combination apparently hadn’t made it across the waters to the UK so it was a completely bizarre concept for us Brits. I remember being sat in a restaurant in…
