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….

Food for Fuel: Triple Nut Cookies

  Don’t panic at my next statement: these cookies were actually baked with a particular friend in mind, who wants to gain weight. Seriously, don’t panic! You’re not going to eat one of these and immediately start resembling the Michelin man. I wanted to make some cookies that could work as a protein-filled, tasty, easy snack for my friend…

London’s Top Notch Carrot Cakes

I’m one of those few people who happens to have been blessed/cursed with both a sweet tooth and a savoury tongue. Sure, you could take that to mean I just really like eating, but it sounds far more sophisticated the first way. I can never decide whether to go sweet or savoury, meaning I’ll probably end up…

Chocolate Pie With Peanut Butter Frosting

This pie.  This pie is the pie of dreams. The pie of hope. The pie you travel for hours to stare longingly at through frosted windows, yearning to enjoy just one elegant morsel of its insistently delectable chocolate heaven. If you hadn’t already gathered, I think this is a pretty stellar pie. I had been…

Pytt i Panna

Pytt i panna is a very traditional dish in Sweden.  Every year my cousins and I anticipate this amazingly homely meal in Sweden in the summer, and when my mum makes it at home, plates are licked clean! IKEA does frozen ready made pytt i panna which is a great alternative if you’re craving it,…

Butternut Squash and Sage Macaroni

This recipe is not actually my own, but is from Katy Beskow’s ’15 Minute Vegan’ book. I’ve put it here not only because it’s really excellent and easy to make, but also because this was my first ever attempt at cooking with butternut squash – I wasn’t quite ready to branch out and create my…

‘Everything but the kitchen sink’ Gnocchi Bake

Happy Saturday! I’m one of those weird specimens of people that look forward to my weekly grocery shop – it’s honestly one of the highlights of my week! I love planning recipes and being resourceful with my ingredients; I’ve even got a full list on paper of every item in my cupboard so that I…
