Strawberry & Rye Scones

July 7, 2017

Summer heat is taking over London at the moment! I think we’re all pretty confused in the UK because we can’t complain about it being cold and rainy? Also I’ve been watching some of the Wimbledon tennis here & there and man, the poor tennis players must be having peak times in the 30-degree heat :/ I’m finally getting a few days to myself with no work to do and just being able to see my friends from home for…

Hot Cross Bagels

April 12, 2017

Woah this Easter break has gone by so FAST. I’ve been in London for just over 2 weeks now aaaand I’m slightly freaked out that exams start basically a month from today. But I’m ignoring that thought for a mo to tell you about my bagel x hot cross bun hybrid!! What we’ve got here is super chewy bagel dough, dotted with mixed dried fruit (which in the UK is basically currants, raisins and candied orange + lemon peel) and of…

Chocolate Chip Wholemeal Challah Bread {Vegan}

November 10, 2016

I’ve been a bit bread-obsessed lately – well, I always am, just more so at the moment. I find myself opting for lightly-sweetened bready goods over dessert come winter. Popping a slice of challah into the toaster and catching it a few minutes later at that caramelised but aaaaaalmost burnt stage, and slathering it in peanut butter is my post-uni snack of choice.…

Instarecipe! Sunflower, Flax & Oat Flatbreads

March 16, 2016

I keep experimenting with no-knead bread doughs, each week using different flour mixes and adding seeds/nuts/dried fruits to the mix. A few weeks ago I baked up a kinda flat but DELICIOUS loaf of bread made using a mix of wholemeal flour, oat flour, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. I saved some of the dough in the fridge, as I usually do, and made a little flatbread out of it to have with my breakfast and loved it even more…

Blueberry-Carrot Muffins (GF)

January 9, 2016

First of all – Happy New Year! I’ve been somewhat of a revision hermit (what else) for the past week or so. Let’s just say January exams are not the one. I’ve had time to procrastibake, of course, but I see it as a sort of morning-meditation. The light is good, I’m feeling hungry enough to spark creativity but not so hungry that I’d eat a bowl of plain porridge.…

Flourless Chocolate Chunk + Coconut Blondies {Grain Free, Gluten Free + Dairy Free}

November 2, 2015

I am absolutely perplexed by these bars. They’re pretty much everything I could ask for. Chewy (almost fudgy, I’d say) with a hint of toasty vanilla flavour and just enough chocolate so you can taste it, but it’s not the main feature. All that and they’re made without any butter or flour. Plus, when compared to your average blondie, they come in with about 1/3 of the sugar without compromising on texture or flavour!…

Instarecipe! Steel-Cut Oats w/ Strawberry Compote, Almonds + Lemon Curd

October 29, 2015

Although I am on a fairly demanding course, I luckily sometimes get a late start. This Wednesday, thanks to a 1 pm Microbiology exam, I had one of those rare, late-start days! I like being able to take my time in the morning to make something slightly ‘involved’. Not like FULL ON COOKING but not just toast with nut butter.…

Instarecipe! Earl Grey Quinoa Oatmeal with Pumpkin Spice Purée

October 10, 2015

I’ve spent my life eating normal, rolled oats as porridge and I’ve never been much of a fan. The texture is too blaaahhh and always makes me feel nauseous so I can’t finish the bowl. I inevitably end up hungry and grumpy – nooot good. The steel-cut-oat world had somehow eluded me until my mum found them here in the UK with the name ‘pinhead oats’. They do take a bit more time to cook (20 minutes vs. 5 minutes)…

Rosie Birkett’s Bagna Cauda (with cannellini beans!)

September 10, 2015

A few years ago I had the extreme luck to nab a few days of work experience with the Jamie Oliver Food Team. On one of the days we were cooking and styling some recipes that had been commissioned by Delicious Holland magazine. We roasted huge shoulders of lamb with whole onions, shredded slow cooked pork and stirred paella all day.…
