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…

Fig Jam, Apple & Hazelnut Crunch Overnight Oats

May 26, 2017

Ah exam period. This is probably the most stressed and busy I’ve been since A-levels. Probably something to do with how I have NINETY credits of modules this semester vs 30 credits last semester! My poor brain. I keep telling people to not give me any more facts because my brain cannot handle any more information. Luckily I’ve found the key to staying on track with revision is meal planning with my housemates and prepping breakfasts whenever possible but ESPECIALLY for exam…

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.…

Chocolate Chip, Hazelnut & Pomegranate Cake {GF}

November 17, 2015

I seem to be on some kind of awesome, cake-making roll right now. I developed a perfect chocolate fudge cake recipe last week (that’s one for another day) and then THIS one over the weekend. The flavour pairing here was inspired by Sachertorte – an Austrian cake made with chocolate, ground almonds, apricot jam and (when my mum makes it) coffee. It’s the bitter edge of the chocolate & coffee paired with that jammy tang that really makes it stellar.…

September 8, 2013

I HAVE SUCH A COOL POST FOR YOU TO READ/WATCH TODAY – IT’S SO EXCITING THAT CAPS LOCK IS STAYING ON FOR THIS SENTENCE, BUT I PROMISE I’LL GO BACK TO LOWER CASE SOON. I MAKE COOKIES AND TALK IN THIS VIDEO. Yeah, you actually see my face and hear my voice (I’m always intrigued when I finally get to hear/see a blogger when I’ve been following them and reading their blog for a while, but that miiight just be…

Nutella and Salted Caramel Stuffed Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

So apparently, nature decided to create a thing called wisdom teeth. Yeah, that’s totally happening. I have a wisdom tooth growing in… …and I’m completely terrified. You’d think the key word – ‘wisdom’ – would imply knowledge gaining, and being waaay sassier than ever before. But no. As I had previously not known, wisdom teeth are actually apparently a nightmare. Maybe the name refers to the ‘wisdom’ you gain about the horrible experience you’re probably about to embark upon, once you’ve Googled…

Banana, Honey and Toasted Coconut-Hazelnut Butter Crostini with Fleur de sel

August 30, 2012

Once in a while, I have fancy days. I don’t have a reason, there’s no occasion. I just want fancy. Put on a dress, yeah. Perfume, why not? Wear shoes around the house – woah there, major fancy. English accent alert- it’s useful for these days. No, I’m not drinking my diet coke out of the can, I’m pouring it into this glass, yeah. Coffee? I’d rather have a cappuccino. I’ll re-paint my chipped nail varnish; what colour, turquoise? No, to0 garish…

August 25, 2012

If one of my friends orders an ice cream flavour I was considering, even if I wasn’t dead set on getting it, I suddenly become slightly angry that they’ve ordered it because now I have to get something different (I don’t like to have the same things as other people in certain situations too). This happened in a weird way the other day when I managed to sabotage myself. I had used up most of my hazelnut butter on the filling…

One of the most annoying things I have to deal with daily is my weird inability to get over things quickly or easily. I don’t even know why it happens! “Okay Izy, you used the wrong leg in Yoga, it’s fine, no one was staring at you.” “Yes, you totally did just trip on that last stair at the tube station, but everybody trips up on stairs!!” “Mmmhhhmm, your oyster card is still not working properly and now there’s a…
