The Softest White Chocolate and Raspberry Cookies

Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuum I could just write that, but I’d be missing out on an opportunity to talk, which is something I greatly enjoy doing, so I’ll write a bit more. My cookie game recently has been strong. Something about winter has me cooking more and more indulgent things despite every week trying to plan in some…

Chocolate and Caramel Tart!

Hello! Been a while… It’s been almost a year since I last posted on here, because I’ve been living in China! Through the hassle of internet difficulties and the even greater challenge of actually cooking anything worth eating, there hasn’t been much to say. I will be writing some things about China no doubt at…

The Only Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe You Need (+The Vegan Version!)

Baking is not something that comes as naturally to me as cooking. I LOVE baking – but 99% of my creations are often more often described as having an  ‘interesting flavour’ or ‘unusual texture’ or, ‘you know what, I actually like the burnt bits!’. To anyone out there thinking I’m being modest – I’m not….

The thrifty guide to eating out

Yes, we all know it’s cheaper to cook at home. That’s not the point though, is it? There are a million reasons why you’d choose to eat out, including but not limited to You can’t cook (/won’t) You’re celebrating something and want to make it special You’re on holiday and your teeny tiny luggage allowance…

Turmeric Rice Stuffed Butternut Squash

I was inspired to cook stuffed butternut squash after having the most delicious stuffed butternut squash at Carluccio’s (With roasted vegetables and pine nuts). Until recently, I hadn’t liked butternut squash (and I called myself a foodie?) and so I had been nervous ordering, wondering whether this was pushing my new found love to the limit….

Simple creamy tomato Tortellini

This is a bit of a micro recipe but is just as delicious as any others! My mum used to make this on the regular and it’s always been one of my favourite dishes. Super simple, you can add any vegetables you want (I usually have broccoli, peas, or courgettes), and it comes together in…

Roasted Chickpeas and Vegetables

I’ve fallen into an obsession with roasting chickpeas – honestly, I’ve always thought chickpeas were alright, but this has launched them onto an entirely different level. I would have roasted chickpeas with salt for a snack anyway – I’d even try them with sweet toppings! To me they taste very much like roasted chestnuts; a…

Baked Eggs

This dish was created whilst scrounging for leftovers at my dads house, and my excitement at finding a cast-iron skillet. At home I don’t have any pans that can go into the oven except one enormous one, meaning unless I plan to cook for an entire village, these recipes aren’t usually manageable. This recipe is…

Hasselback Purple Sweet Potatoes

  I got the idea for doing hasselback potatoes from Sweden, where my very talented relative always cooks the most extraordinary meals – one of which is hasselback potatoes with a creamy mushroom sauce. I tend to be shy to cook potatoes as they take a long time, but this is one style that I live…
