Hari Ghotra Cook Along Event

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to cook with Hari Ghotra some delicious Indian recipes and had a lovely evening with some of the local bloggers.

It was such a unique event as we were LIVE on her Youtube channel! I’ve never been live in Youtube before so I made sure my sister was watching me. They have also made this video:

When I got there a delicious mint lassi was waiting for us. Hari, who is a lovely woman with amazing cooking skills, explained the recipes we were going to make and so we did. From fish cakes to pakoras, samosas and turkey kebabs. They gave us all the recipes but if you are an Indian food fan you can check the recipes on her website: http://www.harighotra.co.uk/

THE Summer BBQ

I love the fact that nothing stops a British bbq! It doesn’t matter if it’s been raining the whole week, it will still be on. To be honest, I’m amazed about this fact as barbeques are always good fun 🙂

Last Thursday I went to THE BBQ of the Summer. Yes, it has been the best one so far this Summer and, keeping in mind that Summer is almost gone, it was the best of 2015.

In honour to the National Burger Day (27th August), Talented Talkers organised on behalf of Asda a MEAT up with quite a few Brighton bloggers.

Brighton Bloggers

The Big Lemon bus picked us up from Brighton train station and drove us to a secret location, which ended up being a beautiful house in Woodingden.

We had all sort of burgers, from halloumi to pulled pork; with different types of salads and pudding. The food was delicious, I kind of want one of those burgers right now and I just had dinner!

Walnut Banana Bread Recipe

When I opened the fridge this morning I saw that I had 3 very ripe bananas. I couldn’t eat them as they were almost black and, even though I love bananas, I don’t like them very ripe. So, what to do? Banana bread!

It’s been ages since the last time I made banana bread so I was really excited when I started making it.

I did a quick search online for ‘easy banana recipes’ and I decided to follow this one from allrecipes.co.uk, except I added walnuts to the recipe.

Weekend away: places to eat in Barcelona

Following my latest post about “Places to visit in Barcelona” I though I would put together a little guide for foodies in Barcelona.

The places below are where my friends and I went on our last city break in Barcelona. However, I’m sure this lovely city has many many fabulous bars and restaurants.

Iriati Taverna Basca

If you are staying or visiting the Gothic Quarter (El Barri Gotic), the Iriati Taverna Basca is a tasty tapas restaurant. The tapas are 1.90€ and they also offer a wide range of wines.

Bodega Biarritz

We went to Bodega Biarritz for dinner. They also do tapas and the prices go up to 4€/tapa. We ate and drank a lot and we didn’t pay more than 12€ each.

They also do mojitos… mmmmm.  The place is not very big and when they are full they won’t let anyone else come in unless someone has finished.

Healthy banana and red berry muesli bars recipe

The other day my best friend made this banana and coconut muesli bar recipe (the recipe is in Spanish) and after her success I had to try to make it myself.

The thing is, while I was planning to make the muesli bars I realised I didn’t have all the ingredients I needed, so I decided to create my own version of the recipe.

It is very easy to make and you only need 3 ingredients:
