Healthy and Delicious Date and Oat Bars!

Christmas in the UAE!

If I read this blog post title 5 years ago, I would have said, ‘but Christmas doesn’t exist in the UAE’.  Having experienced the ‘festive period’ for a fifth year running here in Abu Dhabi, I thought it would be interesting to share my experience with you, and the…

Get Festive With These Easy and Delicious Gingerbread Men!

Deliciously Ella’s Sweet Potato Brownies

I would be telling lies if I said I didn’t have a sweet tooth and wasn’t a fan of chocolate brownies.  Needless to say, when I discovered Ella Woodword’s (author of Deliciously Ella cook book) slightly healthier version of the traditional chocolate brownie, I was very, very…

My Summer Fashion and Accessory Must Haves for This Year!
