Harissa Lamb Waffles with Krombacher Beer

We jumped at the chance of taking part in the Krombacher Beer and food pairfection campaign, we love trying new beers and we especially love developing recipes. Brunch is our favourite meal to eat and it’s even better with an alcoholic beverage! We love the fact you can eat brunch at any time of the day so we wanted to create a recipe that would be perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The dish we have created is Harissa Lamb Waffles and they taste absolutely delicious if we do say so ourselves, especially when matched with a cold Krombacher Pils- for us it’s #pairfection. We have made sweet waffles and protein waffles several times before but this was our first time trying to make savory waffles. We wanted the batter to have flavour and we didn’t just want them to be a standard waffle recipe so we threw a few spices in the mixture.

Krombacher Pils also knows as ‘A Pearl of Nature’ is one of Europe’s leading beers and we can totally see why. The taste of Krombacher Pils is very distinctive and the water it is brewed with plays a massive part in the flavour giving it a full flavoured apple Manhattan is some what bitter.

We got a thumbs up from our boyfriends as well as our dads they all absolutely loved it! It was great to have a little tasting session going on with them all and they all said it was very refreshing and light.

Recipe for Harissa Lamb Waffles- You will need a waffle maker

Waffle Ingredients
125g Plain Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
½ Tbsp Caster Sugar
1tsp Mustard Powder
½ tsp Smoked Paprika
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
215ml Semi Skimmed Milk
2 Eggs

Harissa Lamb Ingredients
1 tbsp Olive Oil
250g Lamb Mince
2 tbsp Harissa Paste
2 tbsp Tomato Puree
½ tsp Black Pepper
½ Aubergine chopped into small pieces
½ red onion finely chopped
250ml chicken stock
150g feta
Handful Parsley finely chopped

Method

Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the lamb and cook for 5-6 minutes until brown. Add the onion and aubergine and allow the mixture to cook for 3 minutes before adding the harissa paste, tomato purée and black pepper, stir the ingredients until well combined and coin for a further 1-2 minutes.

Add the stock to the mixture (it will look slightly runny), place the lid on the pan and cook until the liquid has reduced- we left it cooking for around 15 minutes. In the mean time we go started on the waffles.

Place all of the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix until well combined

Put the butter in a saucepan on a low heat and remove from the heat once melted

Whisk the butter, eggs and milk in a separate mixing bowl

Make a well in the dry picture and poor the wet mixture into it, whisk the mixture until fully blended together and there are no lumps

Leave the batter to rest for until you need it

Turn your waffle maker on and allow it to heat up, once heated (the green light should show) pour in the mixture, close the lid and cook

Once the waffles have cooked and the lamb it is time to assemble the dish, place your waffles onto a plate and pour the mixture on top. Sprinkle with feta and parsley, open up your Krombacher Pils and voila you are ready to tuck in!

Krombacher Pils is available in Booths, Majestic, Morrisons, Ocado and Tesco.

The Field Restaurant Review

The Field opened its doors in May 2018, located in London fields just a short walk from London Field station or like us you prefer to use the underground you can walk from Bethnal Green (it’s about a 15 minute walk).

The Field offer a seasonal plant based menu serving brunch, lunch and dinner they, check their website for opening hours though as they are not open every day. The Field also have a weekday happy hour from 5:30pm-7pm, weekend brunch from 11-4pm, yoga every Sunday 10-11am and live music every Sunday- they have got it all going on.

The Field was opened by Nik Williamson & Ryan Petty two chefs who wanted to open a restaurant serving food that they themselves would eat, they also wanted to create innovative plant-based food which we can assure you they certainly have achieved.

We ourselves are not plant based or vegetarian but we do enjoy a plant based meal every now and then. We were really excited to visit The Field as the menu looked incredible and everything sounded really tasty.

We arrived at The Field at 7:30pm, there was a chilled atmosphere and several of the tables were already taken with couples and friends enjoying a civilised evening meal. We were shown to our table and both Nik and Ryan came over to introduce themselves and tell us a little bit about the restaurant.

We glazed our eyes over the menu before asking both Ryan and Nik for their recommendations (of course they were going to recommend everything it was their restaurant after all but we thought we would ask what the most popular dishes were).

There are a selection of smaller plates and larger plates on offer and we were advised to order a couple of each. We love trying lots of dishes so we did share everything that we chose (that way we get to report back on more of the dishes as well).

We both ordered a glass of 2016 Folle Blanche which was described as a ‘dry and fresh, a little fruity… ooh’ white wine. We loved the wine glasses the bigger the better when it comes to the actual size of the glass (well we think so anyway). It was £7.50 by the glass or £25 for a bottle, we both just opted for a glass. We were also served a jug of tap water as well which the waiter regularly replaced during out meal.

We ordered the Deep Fried Buffalo Cauliflower with House Hot Sauce to start as we were told it was one of the most popular dishes on the menu, it was absolutely delicious. There was so much flavour and it wasn’t like anything we had eaten before, the homemade hot sauce complimented the fried cauliflower perfectly.

We also ordered the Pasta Agnolotti which was pasta stuffed with Radicchio, Orange and Cashew Nut Pate. This was absolutely delicious and we particularly enjoyed the pest dressing that was drizzled over the top. We would highly recommend this dish it was full of so much flavour and we could have eaten it twice over.

For one of our mains we ordered the Summer Gnocchi which was Gnocchi, English Peas, Broadbeans and Mint. Well if you are a gnocchi lover then you will be a massive fan of this dish because it is just incredible and so fresh with so much flavour.  It was soft, smooth and a little sticky exactly as a gnocchi should be and this definitely gets a thumbs up from us.

The final dish we tried was the Zucchini which Zucchini Flower, Dill Pesto and Ratte Potatoes, this was hand down our favourite dish of the evening. We love pesto and we would eat it with everything if we could so we knew straight away we would love this dish. It was presented beautifully and cooked to perfection.

Anyone that says plant based food is boring needs to visit The Field because you will see just how flavoursome food can be without meat. The food at The Field is of a high quality and there are so many different flavours thrown in the mix.

The kitchen at The Field is open which we really enjoyed as you can see the chefs hard at work cooking the food instead of being hidden away. We think an open kitchen makes a restaurant really authentic and definitely creates a buzz.

We loved the hanging baskets that were hanging from the ceiling it made us feel like we were sat in a green house as there were plants surrounding us.

By the time we left The Field the restaurant was nearly full, the atmosphere was calm and it was quite a romantic setting- perfect for a date. If you want to try delicious, good quality plant based food without paying an arm and a leg for it then The Field is the perfect place for you.

Natural Wonders Bucket List

We have put together a natural wonders bucket list that will give you all those wanderlust feels. There are so many beautiful places to choose from and we hope we get the chance to visit each and every one of them. There are so many wonderful sights from crystal caves to magnificent waterfalls, lakes and mud volcanoes that have made rock formations that look like a work of art.

Mud Volcanoes, Gobustan, Azerbaijan
The mud volcanoes are Just 65 kilometres south of Azerbaijan’s capital Baku, we have heard the mud volcanoes of Gobustan have a strangely Martian landscape appearance. Small volcanoes that still throw out some mud, which is thought to have medicinal qualities apparently you will see people stripping down and smothering themselves with it.

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path National Trail, Wales, UK
Situated in southwest Wales, this path twists for 300 kilometres from St. Dogmaels to Amroth. The weather is not always good (as expected), but rumour has it on a sunny day, it is one of the most beautiful places you will find on your travels. You can join the trail in different locations, and if you are lucky you might even see seals in the waters below. There are also guided walks if you prefer to be with someone who knows the trail well.

Great Barrier Reef, Australia
The Great Barrier Reef in Australia has some of the most stunning views trust us! The sea life and coral is just stunning and something everyone has to see once in their life. Some of the Great Barrier Reef tours from Cairns offer glass-bottomed boats, which will let you see even more. They also give you the chance for snorkelling and diving as part of your trip which I (Rach) did when I travelled Australia and it was INCREDIBLE!

Verdon Gorge, Provence, France
Verdon Gorge is known for being one of Europe’s most beautiful gorges. We really want to swim in the clear blue waters of the Verdon River that flows through for 25 kilometres. It is also meant to be a popular destination for rock climbers if that takes your fancy.

Ayers Rock, Australia

This is probably ones of Australia best-known landmarks.  To the aboriginal Anangu custodians, it is a sacred place and climbing it is considered to be disrespectful to them. It is also dangerous but viewed from as close as you are safe to go, it is a truly amazing sight.

Angel Falls, Venezuela
This waterfall cascades from the largest tabletop mountain in Venezuela and is the highest waterfall in the world. It is located in a remote jungle, which you can only reach by plane. The local people work as guides so that you can see how most of the water evaporates on its way down and never reaches the bottom.

Cascate del Mulino, Saturnia, Tuscany, Italy
The waters that come from the natural springs have a temperature of about 37.5 C, and they run down as a series of small waterfalls to different levels. It is said that a 10 minutes soak in these mineral waters will help to relieve the discomfort of many ailments, including muscle and joint aches and pains!

Iguazu falls, Argentina
Located in Argentina, these falls are simply stunning that they have to be on our bucket list. Just look up images and you’ll want to head there tomorrow. These are the largest waterfalls in the world so are pretty impressive.

Moraine Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada
With the bluest waters ever seen you must add Moraine Lake to your bucket list. Trust us you will want to sit and stare at this lake for hours. You can also hire a canoe and really impress your friends with incredible pictures. Whilst you’re here find some time to visit Lake Louise and walk to Big Beehive for incredible views. There is so much to see in Banff National Park, just keep a look out for bears!

These are just a few of the places that you should consider including on your natural wonders bucket list. Every country in the world has amazing sights somewhere in them; it is just a case of finding the ones you want to see!

Timmy Green Brunch Review

Timmy Green is part of the Daisy Green Collection in London. This chain of Aussie restaurants is getting bigger so you are more than likely to be close to one when out and about in London.

Timmy Green is based in Victoria and I visited after attending a gym class in Victoria. This branch is located in a cool part of Victoria called Nova Square. It is all relatively new and there are lots of different eateries and places for drinks here.

Timmy Green is modern with glass windows and lots of marble – an Instagram dream! The staff are uber friendly and the food is delicious.

The menu is really different with food you might not normally choose so it means you broaden your choice – they don’t just serve brunch but we love brunch so its our go to food choice!

I opted for the smashed avo on charcoal bread and added smoked salmon. This was incredible, the bread was insane and the smashed avo on top also came with labne, which is a turkish yoghurt and it complimented the dish perfectly.

My friend had the fancy bacon roll and it looked crazy with so many different ingredients but she finished the lot and said it tasted amazing.

The coffee’s here also taste yummy and look pretty too. We particularly love the blue mugs.

As per the rest of the restaurants you can get brunch here which is 2 courses, one sweet and one savoury with bottomless prosecco or mimosas – ideal!

The Parlour Brunch Review

Canary Wharf isn’t usually a part of town we visit, especially at the weekends as it is known for being a bit of a ghost town at the weekends! The other weekend however, I had somewhere to be in Canary Wharf so decided to look for somewhere to have brunch afterwards.

The Parlour was our brunch spot of choice, it is located in the Park Pavilion on Canada Square which is just a 5 minutes’ walk from the station. The Parlous is a Drake and Morgan restaurant and from what we can tell it seems that they offer a standard brunch menu across all of their restaurants/bars.

The menu was fab and very reasonable as well, I booked a table to be on the safe side but upon arrival it was clear to see they had plenty of seating available. We were asked if we wanted to sit outside in there lovely alfresco terrace but there was a slight chill in the air so we opted to sit inside. The alfresco terrace had its own bar outside which is ideal especially on a hot summer’s day. By the time we left The Parlour the outside terrace was full as the sun had decided to come out to play!

I ordered the Poached eggs with Avocado & Chilli on Sourdough Toast but instead of poached eggs I opted for scrambled eggs. The dish was served but they had have forgotten I had asked for scrambled eggs as poached eggs were served. I decided to leave it instead of letting them know about the mix up- very British of me but it was still super delicious with the poached eggs.

The crushed avocado was absolutely delicious and the chilli flakes gave it a little kick. I tried to poached eggs and unfortunately they were freezing cold, so I had to send them back but when they returned they were piping hot.

My friend enjoyed the Eggs Royale which looked delicious and she said it was very tasty. They served a generous portion of smoked salmon as well which is also a good thing! You can order the Eggs Royale as a half portion for £4.50 or a full portion of £8.95.

We love the décor or The Parlour it was very millennial and there is gold EVERYWHERE! There were a selection of seats to choose from you could either sit on stalls or comfy arm chairs, we obviously went for the comfy arm chairs. We also noticed there were booths available with round tables for groups which looked super cosy.

The toilets were fancy as well and clean which is definitely a massive plus in our eyes, as you know we often judge a place by how clean the toilets are, we can’t be the only ones that do this.  They had a huge jar of sweets (wrapped of course otherwise that would be gross!)

We noticed when we were on the website that you could have your wedding reception at The Parlour, we actually think this would be a great wedding venue. There are a number of different packages available so if you are getting married and haven’t yet decided on a venue go and take a look!

We would definitely return to The Parlour the food was delicious and the drinks we saw being served looked incredible. My friend has visited on a Friday after work before and said the atmosphere is great so maybe we will have to swing if we are in the area for a couple of  cocktails!

2 weeks in the Canadian Rockies: Icefields Parkway & Jasper

Two weeks in the Canadian Rockies has been split into a number of posts as there is just so much to say. However there is also a post of 2 weeks in the Canadian Rockies in a Nutshell if you want to read the summary.

Tips:

– We suggest that where you can reserve campsites online on https://reservation.pc.gc.ca/ParksCanada for what you can. Don’t worry if cannot book everywhere as there are walk in campsites available too as detailed in the post below.

– How the walk up campsites work is you turn up and find an empty plot. Plots are reserved with a slip of paper which you pick up from the hut at the entrance, which states your arrival date and how many nights you will be staying. Picky your plot and then put your money in an envelope, which is also provided at the camp entrance and you post into a letter box. We suggest you arrive at about 11 as people have to vacate at 11.

– You will need to buy a parks pass to visit the rockies. You can buy this pass on entrance Banff national park, if coming from Calgary then he place to buy is a couple of km after Canmore. Don’t worry you won’t miss it and will more than likely queue with everyone else! If you are staying more than 6 Days it is cheaper to buy a year long pass.

– Pick up maps from the tourist information, these are so so helpful and you will take it on all your hikes/use them to plan your hikes. The great thing about this trip is that all the walk are signposted and will also tell you how many kms so you will NEVER get lost!

– We flew into Calgary, hired a camper and headed from Calgary to Jasper and back and it took 2 weeks. We hired our Camper through Wicked Campers and couldn’t recommend them enough. They are cheap, cheerful and suited us perfectly for what we want.

Icefields Parkway

We spent 2 nights on the Icefields Parkway, but to be honest you only really need one night. We had a fantastic time none the less, but if we were to do the trip again wouldn’t allocate 2 night stays.

There are lots of walking places and if you are a serious hiker then some epic hikes for you to to do too.

Day 1 on the Icefields:

We camped the first night at Mosquito Creek. We left Lake Louise and headed to the campsite to get a spot as its first come first serve. We loved this campsite, it was right by this cute stream and was very picturesque.

We the headed to Peyto Lake for the rest of the morning. The hike up to the view point isn’t very difficult and you get amazing views of the fox shaped blue lake. As we like walking we hiked up to the top of this other viewpoint, we just followed signs and got a view from higher up.

We then headed to Bow Lake. We had lunch by the lake and then took a paddle in the water – it was freezing! Whilst we were eating lunch lots of people walked past us either heading out on a walk or coming back. We decided to follow and basically randomly ended up at the most spectacular water fall, called Bow Falls (surprisingly!). The walk was interesting as there was lots of water and sometimes the path didn’t exist. We ended up hanging off branches for parts of the walk, but this made it more fun. Because the walk wasn’t planned and the waterfalls at the end were so amazing this ended up being one of my favourite walks. The great thing about this was that the walk was so varied, from forest, to water to walking through very open land (in the winter it was probably covered in water), then climbing up rocks to get as close to the waterfall as possible.

Day 2 on the Icefields:

We left mosquito creek and headed to the Columbia Icefields which was halfway between where we wanted to camp the second night.
The Columbia Icefields has a modern tourist centre, which of course means this place is crowded with toursits. There are many excusursions you can do from here, but no surprises are super expensive. We opted to have a coffee at the tourist centre and then did a mini walk to see the glacier. You can if you want go on a glacier tour but we didn’t bother.

We then headed to our next campsite which was called Honeymoon Lake. This campsite was gorgeous, right by a lake and we actually spent the whole afternoon by the lake enjoying the sunshine. The lake was freezing, but once you were in it was okay.

Whilst we were here we also visited the Sunwapta Falls which were cool. However to be honest we could’ve done all of this in one day rather than 2!

Jasper

We were meant to spend 3 nights in Jasper, but we didn’t love Jasper, and the weather wasn’t the best. We left Jasper early and are glad we did. We didn’t feel like we missed out on anything.

Whilst in Jasper we hired bikes and cycled from the town centre to Patricia and Pyramid Lake which was fun. We hired a kayak on Pyramid Lake which was great. It was the cheapest kayak/canoe rental in the whole of The Rockies at $40 for an hour. It was fun kayaking around the little island and the surrounding mountains are spectacular.

We also went to Maligne Lake, which is such a long drive away but worth it. We were so surprised how far away this lake actually is!
There are lots of walks to do here for a variety of difficulties, so make sure you pick up a map from the tourist information point in the centre of Jasper. On the same road to Malinge is Medicine Lake so stop off here for photos either on your way to or back from Malinge. When we stopped we saw a baby eagle which was cool.

Whilst in Jasper make sure you visit Bear Paw’s Bakery. This is very popular and famous for their sticky cinnamon buns. They have 2 in Jasper and we visited both of them!

Peterhsam Nurseries & Tea Room

We have been following Petersham Nurseries on Instagram for a while and wanted to visit for ages! It looked absolutely stunning online and totally instagram!

Petersham Nurseries are in Richmond and the most gorgeous place to spend a summers day. Petersham is more than just a nursery selling plants they have the most amazing fancy sit down restaurant and also the cutest tea rooms. They also have catering facilities for large parties and of course sell lots of beautiful plants, flowers and things for your garden.

We visited one Saturday in summer and just went to the tea room, however we know we will be back to visit the restaurant very very soon!

The tea rooms are located at the back of the nurseries and its basically self service. You find yourself somewhere to sit (the covered greenhouses are too hot in the summer but there are plenty of tables outside) and then queue up for your food. Grab a lovely wooden tray and you start at the sweet counter which sells an array of cakes which we assume will change everyday. They offer classics cakes/biscuits/brownies but also vegan options and healthier options too.

Next is the hot food/salad section. The hot food on offer when we were there was a lasagne which looked delicious and then lots of salad bits. We were only having a coffee and a slice of cake so did not try but the salads looks incredible and portion size very generous. You either picked 3 or 5 different salad options.

Lastly you arrived at the till where you could order your drinks. There was lots of options including obvious tea and coffee, but you could also order wine, prosecco or some refreshing juices.

The atmosphere here was lovely and so relaxed, we certainly did not feel like we were in London and felt like we could’ve spent all day chilling here.

Afterwards we had a mooch around the garden centre, there are so many lovely things but sadly we didn’t have the car with us to bring anything back. Next time we will drive as there is a little parking area – however not that many spaces, just to warn you!

There is also a Petersham Nurseries in Covent Garden- it’s on our list of places we need to visit as it looks so beaut!

Skimmed Milk Activewear Review

Skimmed Milk was founded in 2017 and ultimately there aim is to provide premium fitness and athletics wear that can be worn across a range of exercise classes including yoga, Pilates, spinning (which we have tried and tested ourselves and they pass with flying colours) and whatever else crops up on your schedule!

Skimmed Milk had the idea of putting together a collection of Sports Bras and Leggings in fresh interchangeable colours (one of our favourite thing about the brand), which would always go with whatever you grabbed on the way out the door ensuring that your style is always on point- we can confirm that they have met this vision!

We completely fell in love with Skimmed Milk active wear the moment we set eyes on it. Who wouldn’t though it is truly stunning and so pretty! We love the pastel colours and we have been living in our set throughout the summer and this will definitely continue into winter anything to brighten up our wardrobe during the colder months!

We are writing this review at just about the right time though as they have just released new colours for autumn, they are so bright and colourful and just so beaut!

They have: French Blue, Tango Red, Teal, Violet and citrus! We love the Tango red and Citrus- they are beautiful!

The sets come in sizes five sizes (XS, S, M, L & XL). We went for the XS which is a size 6-8, but you can check out the size guide on the website. We always find that sports clothes tend to come up a little bigger so we always opt for the smallest size otherwise we find the leggings can be baggy.

The leggings cost £45 and the sports bra costs £35 but the pastel set is now in the sale so you can get the bra for £17.50 and the leggings for just £24.50 BARGAIN!

The sets in the sale come in four colours:

Bubblegum- baby blue

Blueberry-lilac

Strawberry- pastel pink

Mint- Mint green

They material is incredibly soft and feels really nice on the skin. We are quite fussy when it comes to active wear as we love comfort over anything. This ticks all of the boxes, and are high waisted as well which is a massive plus for us.

The sets arrived in the cutest packaging- a cardboard milk carton which was of course pink! We think the packaging is an important part of the customer’s journey and something we always remember. It shows the company has pride in the products they sell and have really thought about each step of the customer’s journey and to us probably one of the most important aspects.

Rachel has the Strawberry (pink) set it is such a pretty pink and Annie has the Blueberry (lilac) set which is absolutely adorable. We usually love to be matching but with these sets it really didn’t matter in as they complement each other so well.

We mainly wear our sets when we attend spinning classes, go for long walks, attend the occasional yoga class or if we are just going for a Saturday morning brunch, because who doesn’t brunch in there active wear?

Skimmed Milk also sell S’well Water bottles which are absolutely stunning and come in the most beautiful patterns we ever did see. Annie loves the Blue Granite bottle and Rach has her eye on the Blanc Crocodile one.

Head on over to the website now and get your set, trust us you won’t regret the decision!
