Food Blogger Izy Hossack makes DIY Birthday Cake Oreos

Thanks to OXO for sponsoring this post A few months ago I got ROPED INTO* making some ‘Drake on Cake’ style vegan funfetti cakes for my mate Laura’s wedding. Using my prior knowledge of the uselessness of British sprinkles to produce a satisfying funfetti effect (the sprinkles here are always naturally dyed so they just lose all colour upon folding into cake batter), on visiting the US I left room in my suitcase for a) American multicoloured sprinkles and b)…

Lemon-Glazed Gingerbread Cookies

Gingerbread is one of those cookies that I’m always ‘meh’ about when I think of it. Each year I inevitably end up making some to turn into a gingerbread house (or this year, a Christmas tree made of stacked gingerbread stars!). Every time I end up snacking on the dough scraps and nibbling bits of baked rejected gingerbread. And every time I’m like ‘hmm this is actually pretty delicious’.…

Cranberry, Oat and White Chocolate Biscuits

I’m hoooome! Back in London for Christmas break and I’m extremely relieved to be able to chill out for a bit. This has been an all-consuming semester so far. I said to my boyfriend last week ‘I can see now why people drop out in third year. I never understood before but I do now’. It was inevitable that this would be the most challenging year, surprisingly not academically, but mentally. It’s my final year of education after 15 years…

Instarecipe! Chocolate Challah Rugelach

December 1, 2015

I did it! I cooked Thanksgiving lunch for 13 people!! The turkey was spatchcocked (thanks to my brave boyfriend and a pair of poultry shears), the kitchen wasn’t a complete mess and there was enough leftover stuffing to be made into waffles for lunch the next day. HURRAH! The challah rugelach went down well as pre-lunch snacks for anyone hanging around in the kitchen. They were super easy to make too, they just took a bit of forethought as the…

DIY Chocolate HobNob Biscuits / Cookies

August 21, 2015

NOTE: when I say biscuit in this post, I’m referring to the British word for cookie. I think of a biscuit as a certain type of cookie: one which is thin and always dry and crunchy, never soft or chewy. What I do not mean by biscuit is a scone-type-thing. Okay. Cool. Let’s proceed. Whenever I go abroad, I bring a packet of HobNobs with me. In fact, when I was in New York a few months ago and I FORGOT…

Lemon Meringue Pie Ice Cream Sandwiches (GF)

March 19, 2015

I used to absolutely hate lemon desserts (obv the tables have turned now). I distinctly remember this fact becuase of the lemon meringue pie we used to occasionally get for dessert at school. I mean yeah I TOOK the pie (yo, I’m not turning down dessert) and just ate the marshmallowy meringue topping. I’m pretty sure that it was basic lemon icing drizzled onto fairy cakes that converted me a few years ago and I haven’t looked back since.…

December 15, 2014

If you’ve ever been on Pinterest before, you’ll probably have seen a few photos pinned from the likes of the dreamy shops of Food52 Provisions, Herriott Grace, Ariel Alasko and Sweet Gum Co. – gorgeously styled images of beautiful hand carved spoons, rolling pins, cheeseboards and bowls. I have definitely spent a lot of time lusting over all that tableware and the fact that it’s all hand made just makes it extra special. The problem is that they’re all based…
