The Most Magical of Bars

What to do when two of your work colleagues are gluten free – that was the question I faced last week. Normally this isn’t a work dilemma that one often has, but as I love baking and especially love bringing baked goods to my coworkers. Hence, it became my problem. Last week  I made some…

New Books (Just Two)

I’m normally not a huge fan follower of big books coming out. In fact, the only way I keep up with my book news is by following Book Riot or being exceptionally obsessed with an author (Neil Gaiman for example). It’s rare I find the top 40 books on display at Barnes & Noble on…

The Casualties Of Busy Lifestyles

First of all, happy September 1st! For those of you in the know, I’ll have seen you at Kings Cross Station and we’re all happily on our way to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Real Life Photos of Single Food Life

Living alone offers many benefits. Key point: you’re alone most of the time. You don’t have to share your chocolate stash; laundry can happen sometimes never. You can play music loudly and eat what you want. What it isn’t conducive to, however, is cooking photogenic meals. These days I find myself cooking practically – i.e….

Summer Nights Pasta

I’m not a huge pasta fan. Don’t get me wrong, lasagne is life. As is baked ziti. But on a regular basis – pasta isn’t in my wheelhouse. I can think of quite a few other starches I would prefer. Honestly: why waste the carbohydrates? Here’s why, though, you’ll find me writing a post on…

Atomically Fired Up

I have read the reviews, listened to people’s opinions… and when all is said and done – I am a huge Atomic Blonde fan. The gore is dramatic, the fight scenes over-the-top, and the cater-lesbian scenes are ridiculous – but it just goes to show you just how entrancing a soundtrack can be. Because I…

Sweet Potatoes and Baked Egg Hash

If I had to choose my favorite food and it couldn’t be chocolate… I would be hard pressed to choose just one thing. Then again I could just say that it’s eggs. I absolutely adore eggs, and can eat them at any time of the day (because hell, it’s not only a breakfast food). Last…
