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…

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…

The Simplest Stir Fry

If there’s one thing that is perfect for meal-planning and weeknight meals, it’s the simple and classic stir fry. I am fully aware that I have not been exactly on-point recently about posting recipes. In all honesty though, there’s been nothing particularly exciting about pan-frying chicken and boiling vegetables with hummus. I kid you not,…

Experimental Brownies

In my very humble opinion, the best part about cooking is that you never know what can go wrong. Perhaps you don’t realize there’s no baking soda in the kitchen until too late or you let that sweet potato sit for too long and now it’s more like sweet potato mash. It’s practically the rule…

Quick, Dirty Weeknight Dinner

After a long day at work, not everyone of us has the time to cook. I certainly don’t always have the will. That’s why this week I took a large pot, threw in some cauliflower rice, and pre-made greens mix (mushrooms, kale and broccoli) with some coconut oil to cook. In another pan, I cooked…

What’s on my TBE? (*To Be Eaten)

In the interests of moving and being busy, I have not cooked a great many things in the past week. As of yesterday, that’s not necessarily true… Summer always brings about this weird urge to cook inanely healthy recipes. So what did I make? Hummus with Chicken and Brussel Sprouts. Salmon with Broccoli and Salsa….

Brunch and Book Club

Questing for fluffy challah, and soaking it in eggy mixture to be fried on the stove brings warm nostalgia to my heart. I can’t say whether it’s the challah, french toast aspect or simply cooking for other people that I love the most – but it’s absolutely my favourite way to start the day. In…

Indulge Your Inner Foodie

Hormone-fuelled Thursdays aren’t my favourites. In fact, this one is so difficult that instead of writing out a fun-filled recipe for you to enjoy, I’m going to post pictures of food and look longingly at them (as you should too). xx

Passover Apple Cinnamon Cake

It might not come up so often in general conversation, but the fact of the matter is that I was raised Jewish. What sings to me of nostalgia and childhood memories is passover food, the warm and buttery tastes of latkes dipped in apple sauce alongside heavy kugels. Everything about the “high holidays” fills me…

Minor Kitchen Failures: Skyr Omlet and Cottage Cheese Pancakes

As much as I adore making that perfect cake every time or mastering the most delicious frittata, we all have our days where nothing we make seems to go right. Maybe it’s when you use the incorrect baking dish. Or perhaps you think that surely there’s not a reason that 2 tbsp is the amount…
