Gluten Free Pistachio & Rose Baklava

At the age of 18, I was desperate to travel the world. I dreamt of leaving America and heading anywhere, passport and camera in hand. As a student at uni, jetsetting off around the world wouldn't be an option until a semester spent studying abroad my final year, so I had to make do with the next best thing: hanging out with international students in my campus's I-House, going to cultural talks and food festivals. It was at one such festival that I fell in love with the sweet, nutty heaven that is baklava.

A #GloriousAdventure with Food

Sunday, November 22, 2015

I love food -- both this food blog and my plus size lifestyle blog are evidence of that. One of  the most incredible things about food is its power to transport you. Tastebuds are shapeshifters, working with scents, they can catapult you to foreign lands, inspiring you to visit, to travel, all off the back of a sweet, floral coconut or the heady potency of spice.

Vegetarian Roasted Butternut Squash & Quinoa Salad with Honeyed Balsamic Vinaigrette

I'm a sucker for a good salad. I'm talking about salads with substance, with more than just a few spindly salad leaves and half chopped tomatoes and cucumbers. Salads that will fill you up and keep you full and that are perfect for any time of year. The roasted butternut squash and quinoa salad recipe I'm going to share with you today is just that type of salad: it's full of goodness and makes for a filling meal ready in just over half an hour.

This warm gluten free butternut squash and quinoa salad is served on a bed of leaves with green beans and dried blueberry-infused cranberries. |

Journey with us as we play #TravelodgeTourist in Blackpool and discover some of the city's must-see attractions for a rip-roaring family day out!
A diary of two days spent visiting Blackpool as a #TravelodgeTourist from

What do you think of when you hear the word Blackpool?

 Is it the UK's number one destination for hen and stag debauchery? Or perhaps that it's a stomping ground for one of the largest and most invigorating gay communities in the Northwest? Or Strictly, the fact that it's home to one of reality TV's most-loved shows? More than just a seaside resort, Blackpool has been called the Vegas of the UK and while that comparison might be inflating things slightly, it is a splendidly dazzling destination with something for everyone.
