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…

Your Weekday Chicken & Broccoli Dish

It’s no surprise that chicken and broccoli are two of my favourite foods. In fact, I’d be shocked if I didn’t at least eat one of the two every couple of days. What’s not to like? You get protein and fiber without even trying. In this “normal” dish, I thought why not throw together something…

Irish Brownies

Admittedly, the last couple weeks have been some of the more busy in my most recent memory. School and extracurricular activities have reached a boiling point, and I have not been nearly as disciplined enough in my healthy eating and exercise routines. Yeah…. I need to fix that. Far too often, I’ve been turning to…

Lemon Meringue Pie (Yum)

If there’s one thing I adore doing – it’s baking for a friend. I think being able to present someone with a creation of sugar and confection that you made with your own bare hands is potentially the best thing in the world. I slaved over this, it says. I want you to eat the…

Stuffed Peppers

Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. If the recipe originally called for ground turkey and all you have is ground beef – that will have to do. If you realise you don’t have half of the ingredients that you need: then that suffice. I’ve been trying to take this strategy out of…

Egged-out Sweet Potatoes

What people often forget about recipes from the internet is that they have the high potential to go “wrong.” Granted, they usually don’t go as wrong as this one recipe did. They certainly won’t look Pinterest official – but there’s nothing wrong with a recipe looking “worn in.” These are things I tell myself at…

Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

Anything sweet at all is better than nothing: says your resident sugar addict. Unfortunately we cannot all eat chocolate every night for dinner, otherwise I would be more than happy to. The issue with that is… well, well there’s really no problem at all with that (in my opinion). But every once in awhile, it…

Toasted Coconut Pumpkin Oatmeal Porridge

If there’s one thing I know for sure about oatmeal, it’s that it carries with it high standards. We’ve all tasted our fair share of boring and flavourless brands of Quaker oats and brown sugar: so when a blog tells me that I’m going to want to eat this all the time, I’m skeptical. But…

Norwegian Porridge

If there’s a way of describing how incredibly delicious and satisfying Norwegian porridge is in one word, I would choose to use that word here. In the process of making the yummy split pea soup from last week, I was tempted (oh so tempted) to eat something thick and warm. Cue porridge. Porridge is incredible….
