Lemon & Cardamom Gingerbread Cookies

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’.…

Squash & Crispy Kale Bowls with Pomegranate and Miso-Ginger Dressing

November 3, 2016

Ah bowl food, the trend of 2016 which, imo, is GREAT (I mean, if you looked at how many pasta bowls I have with me at uni, you’d see I’m not lying). The typical bowl food format is one I automatically turn to for dinner when I need something a) with lots of veg and b) easy to assemble from whatever I have in the fridge.…

Raw Sweet Potato Satay Salad {GF, Vegan}

April 8, 2016

The cool thing about studying nutrition is that it’s so applicable to daily life and helps me think about balancing the food I eat. For example the fact that eating fats along with the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E & K helps you absorb them better! So having fat in salad dressing is actually doing more than making things taste good, it’s improving the nutritional benefit of those veggies too.…

Gingerbread Pancakes with Salted Treacle Butter

December 24, 2015

I’m getting used to the student kitchen life. I can deal with the crappy lighting and the 1 freezer drawer. That’s all fine. What I cannot wait to leave behind is the electric stove. It takes forever to heat up, forever to cool down and the arbitrary numbering system for ‘heat’ (numbered 1 to 6) doesn’t make anything easier. The saddest thing of all about the stove is that it’s a gargantuan challenge to cook pancakes properly on it. As you may know,…

Gingerbread Layer Cake with Salted Whiskey Caramel {+ a Giveaway}

December 11, 2014

When it comes to gingerbread cookies I’ve never been that enthusiastic. I don’t think I’ve ever made them at home and successfully made them taste gingery or spicy enough (anyone got tips!?) but gingerbread cake is a whooole different ball game. I love when it has a syrupy, dense texture with a richness almost comparable to a brownie. Last year I created my all time favourite recipe for gingerbread cake in loaf form (it has pumpkin in it which I think…

Spiced, Brown Butter Pumpkin Pretzels with Coffee Cream Cheese Icing (+ How to shape pretzels)

October 15, 2012

It’s no secret that it’s Autumn now – it’s already getting dark and cold at 4 pm, I’m constantly wearing jumpers, Starbucks has brought the Pumpkin Spice Latte to the UK, and Whole Foods has a huge stack of Libby’s Pumpkin tins piled up. I’ve never usually been one for following themes – I’m 16 and I already barely even celebrate Halloween – so I’m not quite into baking ‘themed’ food – unless you count DELICIOUS as a theme that is 😉 But, after…
