It’s hard to believe, but I’m already into my second week here in New York City. I remember a few months back, I was counting down the days and thinking the day I got on the plane to come here would never arrive. Crazy how things can change so quickly without you even having a chance to notice it.
As you will know if you’ve been following along here on the blog, I moved over here with my brother. We’ve been busy sending out emails and chasing up leads to try and find jobs in our fields (mine being journalism, his being urban planning) here as quick as we can, and that is one thing that is always going to be a concern until we get it sorted. But hopefully there is something just around the corner. We are incredibly lucky in that we have family here that we can stay with. I had huge respect for people that came here with nobody they could call on before, but that level of respect has grown even more now. I can only imagine how much harder it is coming over from Ireland, and trying to find a job and a roof over your head at the same time.

Happy Christmas Everyone
There is only around a day and a half to go until the big day, so I hope you’ve managed to get everything you needed to do and everything you needed to buy sorted and out of the way so you can have a relaxing holiday.
I thought I’d share a new recipe with you today. I love shortbread, and with this recipe, I’ve given it a Christmas twist. It’s also really easy to make, with only a few ingredients.

Happy Hump Day to you all. The end of the work week is nearly upon us, which also means we are one week closer to Christmas.
As it’s getting closer to that time, I thought I’d share some things that I’ve found that would make great gifts for your nearest and dearest this holiday season. So, over the next while, I’m going to post a series of guides tailored to the specific people in your life.
To kick things off, today’s post is geared towards those friends and family members who are decidedly more live to eat, than eat to live: the Foodies! Here is a selection of things I’ve found that I think would make great gifts.

Well it’s the start of yet another week. Hopefully your Monday wasn’t too bad and the rest of the week follows suit. For today’s post here on the blog I thought I’d share a few of my current favourite places to grab a bite in Galway. There literally are so many places to try out, with new ones popping up all the time. But these are just a few that have made an impression on me, and I love returning to when I can.

Happy Halloween Everybody
I wanted to share this really easy and seriously indulgent chocolate tart recipe with you today. Admittedly, this could be made at anytime, but as it’s the scary season, I thought I’d give it a Halloween twist. While it might not be the most inventive Halloween themed dessert you’ll make, the rich combination of dark chocolate and Oreo cookies more than make up for that. And despite it being really easy and something you can knock together quickly, the finished tart is visually stunning and will have your friends and family clamouring for a slice.

Happy Saturday Everybody
Hope your weekend is going great so far.
I was experimenting in the kitchen again today, and I thought I’d share something that I cooked up. I saw a video on Facebook during the week of somebody making a mince beef stuffed roulade. It looked delicious, and it got me thinking about the different varieties you could make, so I decided to try making a turkey, chorizo and mozzarella variation of my own.

Happy Sunday All
Hope you have all had a great weekend so far.
For today’s post here on the blog I thought I’d share a few really quick, easy and healthy recipes I’ve been using recently. I’ve been on a mission for the last couple of weeks to try and live a bit healthier, and as I admittedly have a huge sweet tooth, I find these handy to have ready to distract me when I’m craving something sugary. I find them really tasty, and they take hardly any time at all to throw together.
