Mangia: Chickpea and Mushroom Pasta.

We absolutely love these sunny evenings. There's something about them that makes us feel extra productive, even after a long day of work. The sunshine through the windows till long into the evening makes it feel like we have all the time in the world to get things done and that includes making something tasty for dinner. 

Book Review: The Time of Our Lives by Portia MacIntosh.


My name is Kelly Sharpe, I'm thirty-one years old and I'm addicted to reading books by Portia MacIntosh. The last book I read I polished off in two days and since then I'm having withdrawal symptoms. I do this every time and never learn my lesson!!! Her new one, The Time of Our Lives, is fantastic though so what do you expect?!

Mangia: Rum and Chocolate Mousse.

"Why is the rum always gone?" (Name that movie) 

The answer is... because it's in this mousse!!! We've been wanting to whip up some mousse for a while now and finally got round to it a few weekends ago. We researched some recipes online and then kind of did our own thing with a mixture of them. I'll admit to putting way to much rum in the first time. The texture was amazing and it taste delicious, apart from the fire breathing kick that only Captain Jack Sparrow would be proud of! ;) You live and learn!!
