Angels with Bagpipes, The Royal Mile, Edinburgh

The Boyfriend and I always like do do something every year to mark the date we went on our first ever date and since this year marked five years we decided to go the extra mile and had a little mini break in Edinburgh. I will write another post about that later but first I…

Farmers Union, San Jose

There’s a really great little area in Downtown San Jose that’s absolutely packed with places to eat.

Low Fat Oven Baked Fries

I don’t often have chips at home, but since it was just my Dad and me in for dinner on Saturday night I treated him to steak and chips and I much prefer the home made kind. This is mainly because I don’t like buying anything pre-prepared, especially when it’s really easy to make, but…
