If you read my recent post about FriendsFest, you will know that Luke and I spent some time in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, a little while ago. Usually, when we visit somewhere new, I do my research and pick the restaurant I want to eat in way in advance. And, seeing as Luke isn’t really a fan of making decisions, this usually works pretty well for us. This time around, though, we were unsure whether to eat in Woodstock itself, where we were staying, or drive to somewhere a bit bigger like Oxford. Ultimately, tiredness and neither of us wanting to drive…

Indian food has been my favourite cuisine for a long, long time. Especially now that it’s one of the only cuisines where I can eat pretty much everything! The lovely team over at Maaya in Milton Keynes were kind enough to invite me and Luke over for dinner this week, and it was fab. We ate far too much, but enjoyed it all and I am pretty sure we’ll be back again soon. The lighting in these photos may be not-so-good, but I can tell you that these starters were pretty great. As is tradition whenever Luke and I have Indian…

Have you ever seen gluten free eggs benedict on a menu? I hadn’t (until now). Eggs benedict is my…

This weekend Luke and I celebrated our anniversary with a seriously fancy dinner date, at The Crazy Bear in Beaconsfield. I have to admit I was expecting a lot, because let’s face it it is not a cheap restaurant, but my expectations were met and exceeded. Our meal was amazing. (The lighting, however, was not so great. So, excuse the photo quality!) Of course we started with the drinks. As I was being a lovely girlfriend and driving so that Luke could have a beer, I wasn’t able to test drive The Crazy Bear’s cocktail menu, but I can tell…

This week, Tuesday night was date night. Ever since I was told I can no longer eat gluten (nope, still not over it), I’ve been craving burgers. I never even used to like them that much! I feel like usually people say ‘you always want what you can’t have’ about love and romance. Not for me. Burgers, all the way.     After some searching, I found Gourmet Burger Kitchen‘s gluten free menu. This made me SO HAPPY. I can eat so much from there, which is pretty much unheard of for a gluten intolerant in a burger bar! The…
