Belfast City Centre has a lack of restaurants supplying light, healthy (ish) meals. I often find myself travelling out of the centre to areas such as the Lisburn Road or Belmont Road for healthier options. However, after visiting The Sagart, based opposite Kelly’s Cellars and its sister restaurant Havana Bank Square, my prayers have been answered. Continue reading “The Sagart – Review”
Although Caolán and I spend every day together, I still treasure “date night” as a key part of a relationship. We hadn’t been out for dinner and drinks, just the two of us, in so long! On Monday, we decided to head out for a spontaneous date night dinner. Continue reading “My Favourite Date Night Dinner Spot”

University is the first major chance most young people get to move out of their parents’ house and get a taste of the “independent, adult life”. It can make or break you; preparing your own meals, cleaning your own house, washing your own clothes. Well, I’m sure not everyone succeeds at these tasks as much as others do. But let’s be honest, student life is not “real, adult life”. Continue reading “Moving Home”
Pesto pasta, pesto chicken, pesto and salad, pesto risotto… it can be teamed with any great meal! After having not eaten the Italian delight for years I decided to make my own fresh sauce. I made a little change to mine that may not make it a traditional pesto. I’m not a huge lover of cheese, especially parmesan, which is often included in pesto. Therefore I chose not to add it to my recipe, but if you’re a fan go ahead and add it!
2 cloves of garlic
Juice of 1 lemon
40g pine nuts
5 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Give the basil a quick wash.
Slice the lemon and juice it into whatever you will be making the pesto in (I used a blender).
Crush the garlic cloves.
Place all ingredients into a blender and blitz until green.
I enjoyed my pesto on top of chicken and courgetti! Try my idea or on a pasta dish.
Lemon Drizzle cake is a popular treat, however it is full of sugar! I created this Lemon and Raspberry Loaf, taking elements from a lemon drizzle cake and adapting it to a healthy snack. Continue reading “Lemon and Raspberry Loaf”
