Last Wednesday I had the loveliest evening with some of my favourite girls, catching up and chit-chatting at Paradiso Bar & Dining, which has just opened up at 38 Preston Road in Brighton!
Paradiso pitch themselves as a relaxed and casual dining space where you can come down, have a drink and eat some food and it certainly delivers on all of the above. Currently sporting an introductory menu of mainly burgers and sandwiches it’s the perfect place for a quick get-together with friends. They also have a good selection of beers and most importantly a great cocktail menu with something for everyone.

Dulce de Leche is a beautifully sweet, creamy caramel flavour spread/sauce that makes the perfect addition to a bowl of ice cream. It’s also really simple to make and a great gift at Christmastime. Just pick a couple of pretty jars, fill with this gorgeous sauce and adorn with some pretty ribbon for that perfectly understated look.

Another perfect homemade Christmas gift, I cannot get enough of honeycomb at Christmas time. It’s super easy to make and only uses 3 ingredients you’ll already have in your store cupboard (probably!) You can make it as a great addition to a hamper, as an individual gift or just for munching on whilst snuggled in front of your favourite Christmas movie.

Today I want to share a delicious Peanut Butter Fudge Recipe that is perfect for holiday gifting. It’s so easy to make and stores really well for a yummy and thoughtful homemade gift.I scribbled this down from a copy of Waitrose Kitchen a few years back and I just love making this at Christmas time as it’s so deliciously moorish and comforting. It’s also super easy which makes it great for when you may have left things a bit last minute! Obviously, you can always just make it as a gift for yourself…

Something very exciting has happened to my little town. Small Batch has come to Worthing! For those of you that don’t know, Small Batch is a Brighton based company who make the most delicious cups of coffee and do everything from your standard Cappuccino to a more exotic single brewed origin coffee. Whatever you chose, all their coffee is delicious. Since opening a shop in Worthing and becoming wildly more convenient for me and Adam, we’ve been there a lot.

There’s been lots of baking going on at home this week, as it’s finally getting darker and that bit more chilly. I don’t know if this is particularly traditionally autumnal, but I do tend to drink more coffee at this time of year so it is for me at least! So, I thought I’d share this Coffee & Walnut Cupcake recipe with you, which is adapted from here.
