Whitley Bay Proper Food and Drink Festival

Ellie's Cupcake Kitchen at the Whitley Bay Proper Food Festival 2015

I spent a few precious hours on Saturday wandering around Whitley Bay’s 2nd Annual Proper Food & Drink Festival, while the boys were off with their dad at a swimming birthday party. I’m probably not the only mum who swerves those kind of invitations 😉 The freshly washed dome of Spanish City basked in the […]

As a food writer and blogger, there’s an expectation that as well as being able to write about food, you’ll also be able to make it look amazing.

Gran Luchito chilli products

Gran Luchito new product alert I’m already a fan of their products using rare Mexican chillies.

Their new lime chutney is even […]
