birthday cupcakes2

Our little blog is growing up – two years old today!

We are still really enjoying blogging even if some ‘teething problems’ have meant that we are posting a little less frequently than we would like. Rest assured, we continue to eat out, cook and bake a lot, and just need to find some time to share a bit more of it here. If you want to see what we’re up to, follow us on Twitter (Emily and Saskia) or on Instagram (username, itpleasesus – if you don’t have instagram you can check out our public profile here.) 

As per our post last year, we thought we’d make a little list of our favourite post from the past 12 months.

Thanks for reading!

 Our favourite recipes


Our favourite places


  • For a hot date – The Commoner its quirky, cosy, they’ll design a menu for you and you share all your food.
  • For a macaron – the big newcomer this year was La Belle Miette, their olive oil macaron is pretty spectacular. Further afield (ahem, London) Pierre Hermé and Ladurée lived up to expectations, though if I had to choose a favourite, Pierre Hermé was my front runner.
  • You can’t book but it’s totally worth the angst – Chin Chin
  • Out of town – while Saskia proclaimed that ‘life begins now’ after her meal at nahm, Emily will never forget the magic of the Fat Duck.

    Yay-happy birthday to your lovely blog!!! Love this post, very handy for newish readers to see some good old posts. I made your amazing salted peanut butter frosting for my son’s party this week and they rocked! I’m now eyeing off your recipe for baked beans which I love but have never made because most recipes are full of ham hock or some other kind of meaty product that I’m not keen on. Will try these out and look through some of your other posts in this list!
    Amy xoxo
