Breakfast Pancakes & Waffles Restricted Diet (e.g. GF, Vegan..)

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…

Artisanal Toast and THE BIGGEST NEWS {meteor sized news}…

February 9, 2014

I have two staple breakfast/ after school food ‘things’ – either yogurt and museli (sounds boring but it’s super customisable) or TOOOOAST. There’s always a loaf of sunflower seed bread (this one, specifically) in the fridge. It makes the BEST straight up buttered toast. Actually life changing. It’s also got the seeds in it and some bran so I don’t end up crashing by 11 am. I’m not the boring toast type. I’m the customiser, the layer-er (as I’ve said…

Hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had a good Christmassy time this week! It’s been three days of FOOD here – not necessarily all day eating or anything, but when the emulsions and foams and spherification starts a-happening in your own house, you know it’s a serious Caps Lock event. We had Turbot with celeriac puree, grape agar balls, kale and some kind of foam for the main and COFFEE-HAZELNUT Ice cream cake (from the best gelateria in London) with homemade salted…

 Hey hey! I’m back. I am alive. I didn’t mean to just leave for like 3 weeks but there was only so much I could do last weekend (when I got home) with jet lag and the impending return to school. I also discovered that during the two weeks in which I was away, the sun started setting approx. 500% earlier than usual. Coupling that with the regular afternoon rain sessions we’ve had, by the time I was getting home…

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

July 1, 2013

It’s pretty hard to not fall into the boring food trap. There are always these pre-determined concepts for how recipes should be, or which flavours should be paired. Yeah, I get that they’re there for a reason. Tried and true blah blah blah but there’s so much more potential! Do you remember the whole balsamic + strawberry craze a few years ago? It’s a good combo right!? but still, I don’t think it’s common enough for it to be a…

PB & Ps from No Bake Makery, by Cristina Suarez Krumsick. Guys, that’s peanut butter, pretzels and chocolate!? AND its…

I think when I try to keep up with everything too much, I end up metaphorically falling over. Turning into basically – a turtle – on it’s back trying freaking hard to flip over and carry on, but majorly failing. This is what happens when revision, 1000+ items in your feedly, food blogging, instagramming and having a social life collide, haha, and this, currently, is my life. When you’re too busy to even think about the ways in which you’re…
