This year I'm going to be continuing my Cooking for Dummies series providing you, my dear readers, with some simple and most importantly tasty dishes to get you on your feet.

It's a Win/Win Situation!

Ever since I came back from Amsterdam earlier this year, I have had an overwhelming urge to travel. So many people I met on the trip had been travelling all over Europe and hearing about their experiences got me thinking about going on my own.

Back to Life... Back to Reality

So now that my exams are over, and I've finally got some time to myself before I go back to uni I've got to thinking about what I would like to do this year. These aren't New Years Resolutions as such but rather things that I would like to do this year, and can hopefully make happen.

Amsterdam Adventure: Part One

Last year my sister suggested to me and some mutual friends that we do something different for New Year's Eve, and what better way to do that than by going abroad? We were initially set on Berlin, but it worked out a lot cheaper to go to Amsterdam which we hoped would be just as fun. I had high hopes foe the trip but nothing could of topped the experience I actually had. I went with some great people, made some new friends and got to experience Amsterdam - if only for a few days.
