Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are the easiest and quickest cookie to make if you’re in a rush. They have a couple base ingredients… and even if you don’t have all the things, you can substitute at will and really do just about anything. Case in point: I was in the mood to bake on a Sunday evening at…

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┬ánoms 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 ┬áI 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
