Seville City Guide: What to See, Eat & Drink



A few years ago I spent a couple of days travelling by myself around Andalusia (Seville, Cordóba and Granada) and fell in love with this region of Southern Spain. So when Mr. FFID and I were invited to a wedding outside Malaga I planned the trip making sure we had a few extra days in Seville before the celebrations as I really wanted Mr. FFID to see what the city was like.

Recipe: Lamb Tagine with Prunes and Almonds



I’m delighted to be a ‘Lambassador’ for the European Lamb – Tasty, Easy, Fun campaign again this year and to spread some ‘lamb love’ on the blog today. The aim of the campaign is to show the versatility of lamb as a key ingredient and how easy it is to cook, hence the campaign name: ‘Lamb – Tasty, Easy Fun’.

Things to do & see in the Corrèze (Dordogne Valley)



My trip to France in June seems like such a distant memory, but as I was going through the pictures of my French holidays I thought I'd do a little round up of some great things to see and do when traveling around the Corrèze department/Dordogne Valley. If only there were direct flights from Ireland I'd definitely go more often... For now I just have to be patient until next year.

The Legal Eagle, Dublin 7



While the food scene has really improved in Dublin, the city still lacks pubs with great food. In terms of gastropubs, there's L. Mulligan Grocer and then quite frankly I can't think of anywhere else. Well thankfully another great option has arrived; the Legal Eagle.

Sleeping in a Fairytale Tree House


My parents live in a beautiful remote part of France (the Dordogne Valley) where I love escaping to once a year. As I visit them very rarely I tend not to do much sightseeing over there and just spend quality time with them, also known as eating and drinking.
