About Me

Hello

My name is Charlotte and I have been blogging for nearly 3 years now and I decided it was time to dedicate a whole blog to something I really love ... FOOD!

At the ripe old age of 27 I have been relying far too much on convenience and 2018 will be the year I finally learn to cook properly. I am a foodie at heart and love eating out and discovering new places. I am not a food snob though, as I do enjoy me a Weatherspoons breakfast or a Mcdonalds cheeseburger! 

After years of being fully caught on the diet culture rollercoaster I have finally relinquished that obsession and have made peace with food and my body after reading Intuitive Eating and I can't wait to further explore my likes and dislikes.

You can email me at cantcookwanttocook@yahoo.co.uk or find me on twitter or Instagram.

Boo Burger, Leicester*

You should know by now that I am a foodie, and the Leicester food scene just keeps getting better. Apart from the fact that I live too far out to get Deliveroo (something that will no doubt factor into where we buy a house) it seems that within and around the city centre there is somewhere new to eat opening every week. When I got the email inviting me to review the newly opened Boo Burger I have to admit I was a little sceptical ... does Leicester really need another burger place?

Located up on the London Road, it is pretty perfectly located for Leicester University students and also not far from the train station. It would also be perfect for a pre or post theatre meal, less than 5 minutes walk from De Montfort Hall. I would describe it as a premium fast food restaurant (comparable with the likes of Five Guys and Shake Shack) and the food was definitely a high quality. All of the meat, salad and brioche buns are fresh daily. 




The menu is small but effective, with beef burgers, chicken…

My favourite post night shift breakfasts in Leicester

If you didn't know already (and really if you don't I obviously don't moan about it here as much as I thought I did) I work night shifts. I am a health care assistant and as I don't have a permanent ward any more I never really know what to expect from my shifts. I generally do Monday to Wednesday night every week and my shifts can range from very relaxing (yes it does happen) to not stopping all night long (which is more of the norm)
One of the rituals I tend to stick to though is after my last night is that I go to my gym for a swim, jacuzzi, hot tub and long hot shower session and then I treat myself to breakfast. After trying out a few different places in Leicester these are my favourites ...
1. Mrs Bridges Tea Rooms

Built in 1723 and in the beautiful lanes area of Leicester, Mrs Bridges has long been my favourite for afternoon tea but it wasn't until recently that I started going for breakfast. From a traditional English breakfast to the (still to be sampled) Cas…

Canteen, December 2017

One of my favourite events of the month is Canteen. Although I hadn't been able to go for a few months due to various states of ill health, I was more than excited when I saw the announcement for the December menus on Cool as Leicester I knew I had to go along and finally try out poutine! So with Kirstie in tow, off I went.



I will start by saying I wanted to try a lot more food but I wasn't feeling brilliant so I headed straight for Gravy train to finally try out poutine. Now, everyone so far has been shocked to know I have never had chips, cheese and gravy but I just don't think its a West Midlands thing. In fact I don't think I had ever had cheesy chips until I moved east to Leicester! Anyway, the only was I can describe this was that it was the ultimate comfort food and exactly what I needed. Cheese curds to me tasted like a strong fish cheddar but with the texture of halloumi and I am definitely down for that!


Kirstie on the other hand went for the trio of steamed ba…
