Recipe: Smoothie Bowl and Eggs

Maybe this is the most hipster phase of my breakfast life as of yet, but smoothie bowls… are pretty incredible. I know they’ve been a huge riot on different social media outlets for some time now. However, when you don’t possess a blender – there’s very little you can do to go about making these…

Recipe: Tzatziki

I’ll give you this – I’m not usually a big fan of sauces. At least making them… it’s a bit of a pain, if I’m being honest. Especially without a food processor – my patience chopping up little herbs and mixing or mashing by hand is practically zero. But in a Greek-fuelled haze, I decided…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Ground Turkey and Mushroom-Pine Nuts

Ground Turkey Couscous & Mushrooms with Pine Nuts In lieu of my usually horridly unhealthy baking post of the week, I though I’d share with you two of my more recent weekly dinner meals. Normally I try to aim for something mildly healthy – with a good mix of starch, vegetables and protein. The first…

Coconut Curry

You’re all thinking it… I can see it in your eyes. Yes. I used pre-cooked chicken for my curry last week (don’t kill me?). Even now, looking at the delicious results of curry paste and coconut milk – I can’t bring myself to feel too shamed. Normally, I love cooking chicken from the raw state,…

Halibut, Curry and Salad

Picture the scene: just having arrived back from a long flight, and having dealt with the jet lag and you’re back in your hometown. What do you want most of all? Curry might not strike you as the perfect thing to eat along with delicious salad and baked halibut filets – but I promise you,…

Caught From Around the Web

In lieu of anything especially exciting this week (minus my dad visiting… but I’ll get to that later), I’m doing a quick roundup of some of my favourite blog posts, recipes, and anything that I think you all might find interesting. Let me know if this is something you’re into and I’d be happy to…
