Banana and vanilla protein flapjacks

Healthy snacking is hard, especially when you are working in an office, where it is the norm for colleagues to bring in tasty and tempting treats. 

Whilst everyone is tucking into the biccies and pastries, sometimes you fruit slices and ryvita just doesn't seem to be fulfilling your snacking needs! 

Homemade flapjacks do make a great snack, and are so easy, so if you are looking for a great snack recipe, try these banana and vanilla protein flapjacks.

Home made French onion soup recipe

Inspired by an overnight trip to Paris (I'll blog about that soon), I decided to whip up a batch of French onion soup for me and my dad over the Christmas break. 

Being a fantastic cook, my mum does the most amazing French onion soup so I'll be honest - this was not as good as hers! 

With just a few simple, humble ingredients, there is magic in the process that transforms them into a delicious, warming soup at the end. The magic ingredient? Time. Don't rush this. Yes it is an easy recipe but it is also time consuming.

Brunch at Brickwood, Tooting Broadway London

After a particularly heavy birthday celebration one Saturday night courtesy of my friend Frenchy, we went to refresh ourselves with a brunch in Tooting Broadway Market.

I used to live in Tooting Bec a couple of years ago but it has developed since then, with cute cafes and brunch places popping up everywhere. 

Our chosen venue was Brickwood, tucked in the corner of the market.
