Cafes of the North East: Cake Stories at Hoults Yard

This is my first post in a series of cafe reviews I’ll be bringing to my blog! We are now visiting a lot more of them than before and I thought why not add them to my blog! If you’re a fan of good cafe food, you need to visit Cake Stories at Hoults Yard. You might have already heard of Cake Stories as they have another cafe in Jesmond, Newcastle and one in Gateshead. They also do pretty epic looking “Letterbox Bakes’– where you can get brownies and cakes through your door! Which I have to admit sounds an…

How to cook spaghetti carbonara with Schwartz

Cooking has never been my forte, but it is something I want to learn more about. When Schwartz reached out to me asking me if I would like to try their Spaghetti Carbonara Mix I was excited to give it a go! In the three years we’ve dated, I can count on one hand the amount of times I’ve cooked for me and Rob. So with 2020 arriving soon and with it our 4th year of dating and me turning 27, I thought it was about time that I put ‘put more effort into learning to cook’ as one of…

Checking out the new Mcdonald’s!

Checking out the new Mcdonald’s!

McDonald’s has been part of my life since forever. When I was a kid, my Mum used to save happy meal toys from when she had them and give them to me ( I had a lot of them!). At university, it’s become a ritual on a night out to grab a McDonald’s before the taxi home! So when they invited me to go behind-the-scenes at their restaurant at the Silver Link I was quite excited to see what new exciting changes they’ve made!  We entered the restaurant and were greeted by the lovely staff who gave us a bit…

Close to the train station and the Quayside, it’s situated in an easy to find part of the city. Launched earlier this year it is…
