The Best Dairy Free Pancakes in Milton Keynes

The Best Dairy Free Pancakes in Milton Keynes It should come as no surprise but I love brunch. Eggs are one of my favorite foods, avocado toast is delicious, and I’ll take any excuse to eat potatoes for breakfast! But much as I love savory brunch staples, sometimes you just really need a sweet, indulgent […]

My Top Dairy Free Pizzas

My Top Dairy Free Pizzas One of the hardest things about going dairy free, or even vegan, is giving up cheese. I had to do it for health reasons but that didn’t make cutting it out of my diet any easier! Luckily, food scientists have been working overtime the last few years and there are […]

My Top Vegan Eats in Milton Keynes

My Top Vegan Eats in Milton Keynes This is my second year of doing Veganuary and I am loving it! I always feel so much more creative in the kitchen, and love trying new veg-forward recipes throughout the month. But sometimes you just want someone to cook dinner or make sweet treats for you, don’t you? That’s […]

Adventure Local: Newport Pagnell

A tall sign made of two beams of wood holding a black piece of metal with the iron bridge, Welcome to NEWPORT PAGNELL, and a car cut out of it that's backed by a white sheet of metal so you can see the images

I have called Newport Pagnell my home off and on since 2017. Ben was born and raised here, and we’ve lived with his parents several times when figuring out our own housing situation. Between living and visiting here regularly over the last few years, I like to think I’ve gotten to know the town pretty […]

Vegan Treats at The Quirk Space

Vegan Treats at The Quirk Space As my first Veganuary comes to a close, I thought I’d highlight a local café that’s gotten us through the month with their vegan treats – The Quirk Space! A disclaimer: my in-laws are best friends with the owner’s parents so we order treats from The Quirk Space more frequently than […]

Date Night at The Moon Highgate

The Moon Highgate Menu on 12 September 2020. They marked everything on the menu that I could eat because it was dairy free, or could be made dairy free with substitutions.

On our first holiday evening up North this September, Ben and I enjoyed a date night at The Moon Highgate in Kendal. As soon as we settled on spending part of our holiday in the Lake District, I got to work researching “Jessica-friendly” restaurants! After all, what’s holiday without lots of good food? We booked […]

Casual Drinks at Cafe Belge

Add Your Heading Text Here If you’re looking for a new place for casual drinks Cafe Belge can’t be beat. They had good beers, good coffee, and very good looking cakes and bacon baps. We visited for the first time this past Sunday, but we’ll be heading back soon to try the baps! It’s a […]

This year I was incredibly lucky to win a Valentine’s dinner at Sweet ‘N’ Seasoned through an Instagram giveaway. We have never been a couple to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but this was too good to pass up! After enjoying a delicious vegan brunch there with my brunch gals last summer, I was looking forward to […]

Adventure Local: West Bletchley

One of my 2020 intentions was to start really getting to know where I live better, to “adventure local” in West Bletchley and greater Milton Keynes. It feels almost like a cruel joke that pandemic lockdowns happened and forced me to live by my adventure local resolution! But it’s also been a blessing. I’ve gotten […]
