Of the Recent Cookery

Of the recent cookery in my life, there’s hasn’t been that much to share. Granted I did bake some delicious chocolate shortbread cookies yesterday and some questionable chicken meatballs earlier this week – but nothing has seemed (and forgive me if I  seem superficial) aesthetically pleasing enough to post online. But as I was writing…

Roasted Pumpkin, Brussel Sprouts and Chicken

If I’m being honest, this barely requires a recipe at all. I went with my gut and threw some ingredients on a sheet pan with one vague idea of what I wanted and ta-da: delicious autumnal themed noms for at least four meals! two 500g containers of chicken Spice mix: Cayenne Pepper, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Turmeric,…

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….

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…

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

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…

Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Turkey and Brownies

Sometimes, I’m social and do dinner with friends. Surprise. Shock. Awe. I know! Me?! Social and doing things outside of my comfort zone on occasion. It’s enough to make anyone have a minor heart attack. Though then again, this “dinner” was with one friend, and we sat around drinking wine while I enjoyed myself cooking……

Holiday Season Blondies

Around Christmas, I always find myself in the kitchen baking as much as I possibly can. It’s so much fun to gift your little brownies, blondies and cookies to all of your friends (and more baking = better baking). This week… I found myself making blondies: perhaps god’s greatest gift to man. Luckily it was…
