Pancake Day, pancake recipe!

Today is Pancake Day! Some of you might think there is not such a thing as Pancake Day but over here, in the UK, it is the real deal. Radio ads have been running for the last couple of weeks, same as in the TV and 90% of the people I asked today are having pancakes for dinner. Pancake Day falls the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. Those in the States will point out that that … Continue reading

Brasil Soccer World Cup

Everybody knows that the Soccer World Cup is almost here. And if for any reason you are from another planet and are unaware of it, don’t worry there are already one hundred articles, advertisings and comments that will give you a lead on it. For example, a few days a ago my boyfriend sent my the ultimate 14 rules that a girl should follow during the world cup…WHAT?! 14 rules that WE have to follow. … Continue reading

Tantallon Castle and North Berwick

Last weekend, the in-laws (2b) were in town visiting so after a lot of wedding-related activities on Saturday we decided to take advantage of the rented car and explore around Edinburgh on Sunday. The chosen destination for the day was North Berwick. Before arriving to the idyllic coastal town (N. Berwick) we visited Tantallon Castle. Since we moved to Scotland I’ve been lucky enough to see several castles and semi-ruined fortress and so far, Tantallon … Continue reading

Burns Night & Gay Gordon’s

It’s been literary ages since last time I wrote. As a new year’s resolution I promised myself I was going to write at least twice a month and here we are… last day of January and still no new posts around. However, I have good news… Today is the first new moon of the calendar year which means; Chinese New Year! Yay, I can give those New Year’s resolutions a second chance. :) By the … Continue reading

So… where is this going?

Oh boy today is cold, sunny but cold. Summer is now long gone and in a couple of days we’ll celebrate our first year in Edinburgh. Ironically, things are looking quite similar to then; our landlord decided to sell our apartment so soon we will be receiving lots of boxes and in November we’ll be moving again. I’m also still looking for a job and although I still haven’t secured anything, I won’t give up. … Continue reading

Not even married but thinking about diapers

Today’s topic might be a little bit unusual but as you know, I’m actively looking for a job and I came across with an application that looks very interesting. Although I haven’t been shortlisted (yet), along with the application form, I have to submit a hypothetical blog post; so I thought I could go that extra mile, turn theory into reality and give the organisation some promotion and who knows… I might even be winning … Continue reading

An interview to remember

I’ve been gone for a while, maybe for too long. My to-post-list keeps growing as I’ve been travelling quite a lot but I couldn’t find the way or the right “excuse” to start writing again. Beside, in the past couple of weeks I’ve been having quite a lot interviews but I never manage to secure any position so I wasn’t feeling over the moon to sit down and write. However, last week I had the … Continue reading

Roasted Butternut Squash

Just like I promised a while ago, here is one of my favorite recipes so far from my new vegetarian bible ;) – Roasted Butternut Squash. This recipe will easily serve 4 people and although in the book it says it is a starter, believe me, this should be treated as a main. I have done some small modifications from the original recipe so if you do get the book, keep in mind this one … Continue reading

Feeling Epic!

I know I still haven´t posted the Roasted Butternut Squash recipe but there were some last minute changes in the weekend menu and although I was planning to post it today, live is not how you plan it and I have a great post to share with you. I don’t know if today Karma loves me, hates me or if it is just trying to teach me a lesson but right now I am feeling … Continue reading
