Possibly one of my favourite recipes to date. I first became slightly obsessed with this flavour combination when I tried snickers ice cream in a town near us. Yep, it is as good as it sounds! If I ever get an ice cream maker this will be one of the first flavours I try! If…

Korea’s delivery system is like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I’m usually not bad at staying one step ahead of the game in terms of organising but I failed this time around and forgot to stock up on a few key ingredients. I found myself ordering stuff late into the night the day before baking day…

No matter how full I am from a meal, I always seem to have room for dessert. I can be stuffed to the gills, and still find space for a little something sweet. Even though I think I’m happy to end with the cheese course and the last of my wine, I’ve always got one…

Recently I’ve realised that with baking (and many other things in my life) I’ve put too much pressure on myself to achieve too much in too short amount of time. I always rush things and try and try and try again even though new recipes may not turn out and logic would tell me that…

One of my mother-in-law’s favourite chocolates are mozartkugeln. If you’re not familiar with these chocolates they’re a truffle made of pistachio flavoured marzipan and nougat, covered with dark chocolate. For her birthday this past weekend I set out to make a cake inspired by these flavours. I was fortunate enough that my Dad had been…

On my 19th birthday, my mother made me dozens and dozens of chocolate eclairs to take to my work place and share with the people I worked with.   I hadn’t been working there long and it was just a fill-in job between the year I had spent travelling the world and before starting my…

One of my friends tipped me off about tiger nuts (and tiger nut flour) luckily while I was in Canada for the summer and was able to pick some up. Snacking on the nuts themselves (that are not technically nuts) takes some getting used to but now I quite like them! They’re chewy and slightly…

Hello everyone 🙂 I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Years and enjoyed some fun times with your families over the holidays and of course ate lots of delicious holiday food! I’ve been lazy over the holidays by throwing all schedules out the window and just relaxing and enjoying my first school holidays not…

If you love chutney, these South Indian spiced, savory scones act as excellent vessels to scoop up the goop. Made with coconut oil and lightly spiced with curry leaves, mustard seeds and pepper, these savory scones are a delicious break from sweet breakfast and brunch options. I love chutney. Coconut chutney is my absolute favorite.…

Where I come from, the concept of sticking two butter shortbread cookies together with jam (jelly) is referred to as a  Jammy Dodger. They are a national institution in the UK, with the main concern not whether you like them (because that’s a given), but whether it is sacrilegious or not to dunk them in your cup of tea.…

Whoever decided to put peanut butter and chocolate together for the first time was a freakin’ genius IMHO. I wonder if it was an accident or on purpose? By accident,  I mean like when you take a bite of bacon, then accidentally lick your fingers that have caramel on them… (happens to me all…the..time )…

Another thing I have never made! Croissants are what they are due to the layers of butter and glutinous dough that gives them those stretchy and flaky layers. So, pretty much everything that vegan and gluten free is not. I really wanted to believe a vegan and gluten free version could be done and I…
