Chocolate Pecan Pie

October 10, 2018

*Thanks to OXO for sponsoring this post After a little trip to Ireland to help host a food photography workshop with Eva, I came back to my new flat and finally, after 3 weeks, christened the oven by baking this pie. Pies aren’t something I bake that often, usually because I’m so impatient and the idea of chilling, rolling out dough, blind baking and all that is not what I’m after. The ONE type of pie that I am willing…

Runner Bean Samosas with Pineapple Chutney

July 8, 2018

Thanks to Vitamix for sponsoring this post I’m back from my holidays and for once, the sun is actually shining in the UK. Most summers I’m away coincidentally at the time when England gets its WEEK of sunshine so by the time I’m back, I’ve missed it! However, this weirdly long heatwave has coincided with a time when I’ve needed to be in the kitchen a lot so I’m feeling like a toasted marshmallow 90% of the time.…

Tahini Caramel Apple Tart

March 27, 2018

Thanks to Food Network UK for sponsoring this post and to you guys for supporting me! At uni for the past two years I’ve been lucky enough to live with two friends from my course – we all study Food Science & Nutrition. I assumed, going into this course, that all the other people I’d be studying with would be as interested in cooking as I am, but it’s become abundantly clear this is not the case, haha. Fortunately, my…

Chocolate & Blackberry Choux Buns

Chocolate & Blackberry Choux Buns

  Choux pastry is one of those things which is just hella delicious but I always forget about it as a fancy dessert option. The main times I’ve made it have been for large family gatherings and for my GCSE food tech project in which I made choux bun/cupcake hybrids which looked like swans once a week for 2 months (..don’t even ask). I think they’re a bit like soufflés in how they seem really fancy and difficult to make but…

No-Bake, Oaty Apple Crumble

December 9, 2015

Doing the giveaway post with E.ON a few day ago (which you should totally go enter if you haven’t already!) got me thinking about no-bake recipes. Sometimes it’s just so much more convenient and economical to not have to turn on the oven. The problem with no-bake desserts is that they’re usually not only ‘no-bake’ but completely the opposite of baked. They’re cold. In Leeds it’s regularly staying below the 10ºC mark so cold desserts are not what I want right now.…

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…

Banoffee Pie Bites {GF & No refined sugar, Vegan option}

August 9, 2015

Somewhere in-between last weekend’s hangover and this week’s flu I managed to bake these beauties. Of course if there was one thing that I would fit into the only day this week when I wasn’t bedridden, it would be baking. Thankfully I’m all better now and I’m avoiding any drinks above the 0% alcohol level so there should be PLENTY more time for food in my life (and so plenty more time for these babes).…

Bumpy Cherry and Almond Pie

July 6, 2014

Before I made this pie (and then ate a quarter of it during a revision break), I’d never actually eaten cherry pie before. I think this is down to two factors: I basically never bake with cherries (yo, £4.50 for a 400 g carton. I’d normally rather just eat them straight up) and I also don’t bake pie that much; check my archives, you’ll see how true this is. I adore pastry, especially this almondy, mega buttery one but I usually find…
