I’ve been really into baking with sorghum lately – as usual it all started because I have a surplus of it. One time I accidentally ordered a ton of Bob’s Red Mill Sorghum flour instead of Bob’s Red Mill Brown Rice Flour (which I use a lot) and the rest is history… Anyway it turns…

A few of my favourite things in one cookie. Whip up some meringue… Add lemon, pine nuts and poppy seeds. Bake until blonde… Sandwich them together with a heavenly cream cheese and lemon cream… Serve them with a glass of cold milk… or a dainty cup of English tea… Or a thumping big mug of…

One thing I’ve been wanting to make more of these days is scones. I’ve never been a huge scone fan to be honest – I always found them to be dry and a bit bland. Having said that, it seemed like they should be pretty easy to veganize and gluten-free-ify? Someone needs to coin a…

As a new mom, when I have time to bake, I like to bake things that can serve a few purposes. These muffins are a convenient and healthy grab-and-go breakfast or snack. They are also really great for milk supply and as a breastfeeding mama, this is always a welcome bonus. Flax meal and oats…

I’m back at it with pancakes already! I never stay on top of national (or international) food days. I only know pancake day was recently because of all the pancake related goods showing up on my feed lately. Most specifically, Cupcake Jemma’s blueberry pancake cupcakes! And after my failed attempt at buckwheat pancakes, I felt…

We have these fantastic tasting cookies here in NZ called Cookie Bear Chocolate Chippies, made by The Griffin’s Food Company who have been making Kiwi’s favourite ‘bikkies’ for over a century. They were often in my lunchbox as a child and I still enjoy them as an adult (especially dunked in my coffee, lol). I…

So, this is what set me off on the hunt for another good pancake recipe. I’ve followed Cupcake Jemma for a long time now (and Crumbs and Doilies which is the bakery she runs in London.) I always drool over her treats and daydream about making vegan and gluten free versions. Well this cupcake tipped…

  I think I prefer Easter baking to Christmas baking. My sister and I are quite excited about it this year, I am heading back home for Easter so we have a few things planned! Tim was in England with work this week so I asked him to bring me back some mini eggs so…

I didn’t grow up with granola. I grew up with steaming bowls of porridge, boiled eggs and soldiers, toast and tea and the occasional warm crumpet smothered in butter and honey and glasses of cold, cold milk. I think I was married with kids when I first heard about granola… aside from the Neil Diamond…

Seoul is still pretty cold these days but it’s not so bad because I don’t feel as guilty staying in while the weather is less than stellar. In other words, it’s my excuse to be a homebody! By the time spring comes I’ll want to be outside all the time so why not take advantage.…
