My mom has always been one of those cooks that can somehow always turn a few random ingredients of a practically empty kitchen cabinet into an amazingly tasty meal. She’s never been what you might call fancy kind of cook, theres never a real recipe, or special technique, or consistent method, its just sort of a feeling thing with her. An innate feminine skill...

I woke up this morning and the first thought that came into my sleepy head, was unusually, (for once) not of my lovely boyfriend… …but of scones. I wondered half awake half asleep just how easy it would be to make a gluten free batch with what I had in my cupboard before wrapping myself in my fluffy robe and making to the kitchen, only to find someone had already...

It’s May! Which means Summers sunny head is starting to peep through, promising to  warm us us all up for a few months of extra lazy sunshine, days at the beach, backyard bbq’s and countryside picnics!! (Well here in Ireland we always wistfully dream we will actually get to do all those lovely things, but in truth we usually need to hop on a plane to a neighboring...

    It’s a bright Saturday morning with the sun playing peek –a-boo among some very fluffy grey clouds and I can hear all the birds out there, cheerily gossiping in the trees about what I can only assume is all the latest news in bird land!! The back door is open letting a very cool April breeze drift through the house, the dogs are out jumping all...

Icecream, caramel and chocolate…..a combination of some of the most delicious things on the planet, things we drool at the thought of, things we dream about devouring and when we do usually feel terribly guilty and beat ourselves up about mentally and emotionally. But what if we could have those amazing combinations of tastes and not only enjoy every bite but revel...

Another windy rainy day in our little north Kerry town swept me and my big sis into the bookstore for a wander around earlier today, and as she headed to the new age section (our undoubtedly most frequented section of the book store) I headed over to another absolute favourite area of mine, the food section.  Oh how I love food books, shelves full of beautifully...

As much as I love cooking, and food and of course writing about it, sometimes it’s nice to take a day off and have someone else do it for you. Luckily I have the loveliest older sister who is also as health orientated as I am, and  although to be honest she’s not the most keen or avid chef (she recently had to ask me how to make tea) on occasions when...

Ive previously mentioned and wrote about my love of the Thai cuisine, not just for it’s scrum-diddily-upmtious  light refreshing flavors but also for the immense health benefits that come from the simplest of their dishes. You see Thai cuisine is based around the purpose of reflecting three core values; Nutrition, Culture and Health & Wellness. Most all the...

She’s one of the most popular actresses in the world right now, with looks that garner the affections of men across the globe, and a charming and almost annoyingly lovable personality that endears her to girls and women alike, so it’s no wonder Mila Kunis would be someone whose diet and fitness regime would attract a certain amount of curiosity. When she catapulted...

Firstly, I want to apologize for the 6 week hiatus I just took from this blog. When I first got the opportunity to go on a U.S tour with my sisters, singing, performing and basically doing what I always dreamed about, I had every intention of keeping up my blogging activities. But when I started the tour in St.Louis Missouri, climbed on a bus with 17 other people,...
