Recipe: After Eight Brownies

After Eight Brownies Recipe

Is it too early to mention the C word? Christmas I mean. Whilst we haven't put our tree up yet, I'm feeling super festive already this year and may have even watched my first Christmas film on Netflix last weekend.

After Eights are one of the nation's Christmas chocolates of choice, however I never really think of them as a Christmas treat as Chris will happily eat them all year round (they're one of his favourites). Whilst looking for inspiration for a dinner party with friends a few weeks back, Chris came up with the genius idea to combine one of his favourite chocolates with his favourite dessert, and boy am I glad I listened to him for once!

The Green House, Sutton Coldfield

The Green House Sutton Coldfield

Hello! It's been a while hasn't it? I took a break from the blog to get married and go on to honeymoon (just a small life change!). But now that I'm married, and it's almost Christmas(i.e. acceptable to get a bit chunkier) - it's time to start blogging about food again, so when I was invited to try out The Green House in Sutton Coldfield, I said "yes please!"

The gastro-pub has been recently refurbished and looks super swanky inside now. There was nothing particularly wrong with it before, but now it looks stylish and modern and they've made much better use of the space - meaning more tables for dining and a cosy new bar area to relax with a drink.

Head of Steam, Birmingham

Head of Steam Birmingham

It's been a while hasn't it? Sorry about that, between planning a wedding, trying to get the perfect bridal bod, have some kind of a social life and working a full-time job the blog has been neglected. I'm back though - for a very exciting review!

Last week I was invited to check out the brand new Head Of Steam in Birmingham, located on Temple Street. A dog friendly bar and eatery specialising in cask ale, craft beer and cocktails. I headed down with Chris the day before it opened to the public to try out some of the drinks, take a look around the venue and try some of the food from their menu.
