Groundbreaking, inclusive, romantic, unique, personal, different, and untraditional were many words I heard while watching the television coverage of the Royal Wedding. But the word I heard most often was modern. May 19, 2018 is a day many will remember for years to come. As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared their love publicly at the Windsor Castle wedding, it is estimated that billions of people watched along with them. And while I wiped away many a tear, I also cheered as indeed it was beautiful, touching and MODERN!
I’m not sure about you, but we are having lovely warm weather here in London. Which means I am craving some light and healthy salads! And today’s Woman Crush Wednesday honoree chef Lynda Booth is going to save the day. Especially since it is a quick and easy recipe for her Grated Carrot and Beetroot Salad. Because if you’re like me, some weekdays are hectic! With work and errands it leaves little time to get a meal on the table. So paired with a nice piece of fish, I am counting on this salad to be a 100 yard dash dinner winner!
It is May 2nd, which means we are getting closer to the halfway point of 2018. What is even more exciting is that today is Woman Crush Wednesday episode number 92! Inching nearer to 100 each week. It means so much to me that you have all been so supportive of this special day to honor these fabulous female foodies! And today’s WCW chef is Londoner Natasha Corrett Continue reading
Hello again and thanks for coming back for another episode of Woman Crush Wednesday. The best day of the week in my book! Because another fabulous female foodie gets the love and we get a new recipe! I am so excited to share today’s honoree with you. Hubby and I watched Shelina Permalloo win Master Chef U.K. in 2012. We were still living in Dublin back then. Who knew we’d be living in the U.K. now ourselves! Hopefully one day soon I can go to her restaurant Lakaz Maman in Southhampton for a Foodie Fieldtrip Friday! But first, I am going to recreate one of Shelina’s recipes on my Snapchat (username blissbakery) so come watch, or just continue reading for pics and more about this gorgeous gourmet gal!

The 90th episode of Woman Crush Wednesday is here and it’s gonna be an awesome one! I am honoring Australia’s leading foodie, the amazing Donna Hay. I will be re-creating one of her recipes live on my Snapchat channel (username blissbakery) and will share photos and gush all over this gorgeous gourmet gal!
As I was preparing for this week’s episode of Woman Crush Wednesday, Hubby reminded me that it was time for a savory dish. Not always, but traditionally I would alternate one week sweet and another savory. However, I tend to error on the side of sweets, cuz I roll like that! So as not to have three weeks in a row of treats, I chose a treat of a recipe by the amazing Ping Coombes. WCW honoree #89 has a wealth of recipes to choose from, but this savory “Asian Bologneses” as she has nicknamed it, sounds delicious by the list of ingredients! But I am not surprised, as Ping Coombes is a winner of Master Chef UK and a cookery book author!
Before all my vegan and vegetarian friends delete this post, just hear me out. This is not a foodie related blog entry today. In fact it is more of the spiritual nature. And it isn’t because of Stella’s recent passing or my dad’s anniversary that I am sharing this with you all now. But it is a concept I have spoken of many times in public and private. However, today I decided to dedicate this moment entirely to MEATSUIT!
