Porto Exploring: Riberia, Port Cellars and Livraria Lello | I Spy Plum Pie

Porto Exploring: Riberia, Port Cellars and Livraria Lello

After my magical time in Montenegro last year I got to explore a little of another country I had never been to before – Portugal! I’ve going to share some of my adventures with you over the next little while, starting with some of the exploring I did in Porto. The first of my Porto Exploring posts takes us through the neighbourhood of Riberia, across the river to try some port and into Livraria Lello!


Eggplant Caponata | I Spy Plum Pie

Recipe: Eggplant Caponata

Back in January a friend hosted an Italian-themed dinner party for his birthday and I brought along this eggplant caponata dish. It is tangy and delicious, and made a great counterpoint to the rich cheese and carb-heavy dishes on offer. Plus, it was super simple to whip up which was ultra important as I made it whilst simultaneously packing up my kitchen!


Asparagus Bean Rice Salad | I Spy Plum Pie

Recipe: Asparagus Bean Rice Salad

I love a rice based salad and this asparagus bean rice salad is no exception. It’s hearty enough to take to work for lunches, whilst still being full of flavour and packed with greens. It is super simple to whip up too – seriously, what’s not to love.


January Favourite Finds 2019 | I Spy Plum Pie

January Favourite Finds 2019

January has been a pretty hectic month for me – I’ve taken the plunge and I’m getting a whole new kitchen and bathroom in my apartment! As a result, the first half of the month was all about making decisions and packing things, and the rest has been living out of my suitcase! My January favourite finds are therefore non-renovation-related pockets that brought me calm or joy this month! I’d love to hear about your January favourite finds too!
