Literary Come Dine With Me

One of my guilty pleasures is without a doubt Come Dine With Me. I watched it every evening when I came home from university, and even though I’ve left the country I still manage to catch a few every now and then (thank you, You Tube.) I’ve decided to combine two of my biggest loves, reading and cooking, and create a little Come Dine With Me atmosphere on my blog.

I first took this tag back in 2015, so I thought three years later was the perfect time to update it and see how, if at all, my answers have changed.
