Our first meal in Florida was had at Caddy’s on the Beach, a five-minute stroll up the beach from our house, which was a great start to the holiday.

Our first meal in Florida was had at Caddy’s on the Beach , a five-minute stroll up the beach from our house, which was a great start to the holiday. I had Applewood smoked bacon, poached eggs, fresh farmers market tomatoes, rye toast and lots of freshly squeezed iced orange juice. My boyfriend’s eggs Benedict looked particularly good, and I was seriously envious of my brother’s Son of a Beach Burrito!
IHOP (International House of Pancakes) is a great value place to have a breakfast in Florida, and somewhere that holds memories that make me laugh out loud. Years ago a group of us were there and my sister ordered ‘Country Steak’ from the menu – I warned that if I were her I wouldn’t choose it, but she went ahead anyway. The rest of us tucked into our delicious pancakes while Abbie poked at what looked like Campbell’s condensed mushroom soup spread on top of a greyish, thin breaded steak. To me, gross at anytime, let alone for breakfast!
We all chose well this time with pancakes, bacon and butter topped with our choice of old-fashioned, maple pecan, blueberry or strawberry syrup and jugs and jugs of coffee.
We saved up the rest of our eating capacity for lunches and dinners, buying in fresh fruit (watermelon and pineapple was my favourite), cereal, eggs and toast for our breakfasts… except for when we had leftovers to warm up from dinner the night before!

Here at Fabulous Food Finds HQ there hasn’t been a lot of fine food consumed lately… in fact I have to confess that we’ve been eating a LOT of convenience food. And not good convenience food. Think bad frozen pizza, bowls of cereal, dirty takeaways from our average local Chinese, kebab and curry house, chips, […]

I was challenged by the Co-op to put together an easy eating recipe, showing that amazing food doesn’t have to be complicated… I did a supermarket sweep at my local co-op in Cromer and picked up the ingredients for a quick bit tasty chicken based dinner. I haven’t specified quantities here – just use enough to […]

I have to admit to being a huge salt fan, always yearning for a saltier salted caramel… so I was delighted to discover a new producer of sea salt – Isle of Sky Sea Salt. With the purest Scottish water taken from Loch Snizort on the Isle of Skye, the sun (when it shines!) dries […]
