So now I have logged as many years on this Earth as there are hours in the day…welcome to 24 Sam! On Saturday I turned 24, I did so with not much celebration, a meal; a Colin the Caterpillar cake and of course, a platter of cheese and crackers. What other way?
Ah Las Vegas, a place where there’s some of the best, weirdest and damn right wacky food in the whole world. On our recent trip we got to cross a fair amount of places off our bucket list, find some new favourites and well see an awful lot of giant portions. Enough of my blabber-Read More
So…since I last posted here I’ve been on one of the best adventures I’ve ever been on. One week spent in Nevada gambling, eating great food, dancing on a huge wheel and everything in-between. We found gems, watched an incredible show and now I’m getting a chnace to go through everything and really digest theRead More
Let me start this with saying that I’m no Gordon Ramsey, but I love to cook, this is a simple chilli recipe that takes no effort to make, can be made in advance and makes really good leftovers. I rustled this up on a Sunday afternoon, and did leave it ‘marinating’ for a couple ofRead More
Can someone tell me how it is the end of February? I swear it was New Years yesterday, did I blink for too long? Anyway, I’m hear to ramble on about some of my current favourites, as when I sit down and actually give it some thought I have a fair few, which is unusualRead More

The city that never needs sleepLas Vegas, Sin City; whatever name you prefer, home to the rich, the super rich, and the trying to get rich. It’s surreal from the moment your plane comes into land.
So it’s a Sunday afternoon, the North West has had a tonne of rain dumped on it (again) and it’s starting to get pretty cold; you could say previous years have started better, possibly. Any way, that’s not what this post is about. This post is about 2016, a brand new year and what IRead More
It’s crazy to think that the curtains have almost closed on 2015, and you know what it’s been a pretty great year, I’ve been able to explore, eat a lot of new food (surprised?) and I feel like I might have actually grew as a person, not in height mind; I doubt I’ve grown sinceRead More
