Cucumber Fizz

This cocktail is so easy to make, it’s brilliant for a summers day as it’s very refreshing and has a subtle sweetness from the prosecco. I made this cocktail more fun by spiralising the cucumber. If you haven’t got a spiraliser I would very much recommend them! They’re great for stir fries, salads, courgetti and many more things – you can even buy some spiralised vegetables in the supermarket these days, although they can be pricey for what they are so you might as well do it yourself!

Our Mediterranean Adventure: Italy and Croatia

We left England on the 4th June, bound for Italy. Dean and I were both very excited to be going back there as we absolutely love Italian food.

Rome

We arrived at the hotel, checked in and went straight out to find somewhere to eat for lunch – got to get your priorities right! The sun was shining and we were very happy to be there.

This was nice.

We both loved Rome, it had such a great feel to the place. It was busy and full of life, the people were generally friendly and of course the food was delicious. There is so much great and varied culture to take in whilst in Rome and we were even lucky enough to see the Pope. We visited the Vatican on a Sunday and he was doing a service in front of thousands of people filling St. Peter’s Square.

This pizza not only looks like a paella but it tastes just like one too! With its saffron base, juicy prawns, tasty squid, smokey chorizo, tender chicken and all the extras it has a fantastic fusion of Spanish and Italian flavours.

I made my own pizza base which was really simple to do and tasted so good. If you want to buy a base to save time then feel free but you really can’t beat homemade! If you’re a paella lover then you must give this pizza a go, you wont be disappointed!
