PANDORO FRENCH TOAST

I love French toast and I love pandoro so what could be better than pandoro French toast? I’ll tell you what…nothing! I reserve making French toast for the weekends when I have time to cook and enjoy a leisurely breakfast/brunch. I normally make it using brioche but seeing as its Christmas, I decided to try it…

WHITE HOT CHOCOLATE

I was watching the Food Network yesterday, (surprise surprise) and Ina was on, as always. I have a deep love for Ina, or the Barefoot Contessa as she is otherwise known.  I have expressed my love for her before and always take great pleasure watching her programmes. Yesterday, in an episode…

CHOCOLATE BEETROOT BROWNIES

I recently discovered Farmdrop, an online farmers market, and as part of my first order I bought some beautiful beetroot. I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with it until one Sunday afternoon I was craving chocolate brownies so I started looking out the ingredients I needed…

GINGERBREAD CAKE WITH ORANGE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

Its cold and miserable outside so I thought I would post this seasonal recipe for gingerbread cake. Oddly, even though I’m no fan of ginger, I actually love gingerbread cake and just as I was thinking of making one, Barefoot Contessa came on the Food Network with her gingerbread cupcakes! There were…

SWEETCORN FRITTERS

I love breakfast but I often don’t have time for it during the week. I always have a tub of homemade toasted muesli in the office which I like to have with berries and yoghurt, but when the weekend comes around I like to make some effort with my breakfasts.…

PEACHES & BURRATA

When I was in the Southern States earlier this year, I ate at a fabulous restaurant in East Nashville called Little Octopus. There, I tasted burrata with pickled peaches and kaffir lime and it was sensational. For the rest of the road trip my friend Cassie and I couldn’t stop talking about…

TOASTED MUESLI

I really notice a huge difference in my eating habits over the course of a day, based on what I have for breakfast. Sometimes I skip it, then I end up snacking by 10am. Or if I eat too early, at about 7.30/8am, I’m still hungry at 10ish and I…

HOMEMADE GNOCCHI

Summer so far has been pretty ok. Well, for London anyway. We’ve had quite a few hot and sunny days in a row and that’s quite a novelty. However, the beautiful weather broke last week and instead of sunshine we for thunder and lightning then high winds and heavy rain.…

NASU DENGAKU (MISO GLAZED AUBERGINE)

I absolutely adore aubergines. I could eat them every day, and often do. I’m always on the lookout for new recipes for them. A recent discovery was Sabrina Ghayour‘s incredible recipe for Kashk-e-Bedemjan – aubergines with caramelised onions and whey. It BLEW MY MIND! You can find the recipe for…

SWEETENED LABNEH WITH MIXED BERRIES

One of my favourite desserts is Greek yoghurt with mixed berries and honey. Very simple, but delicious. Recently, I had labneh, a strained yoghurt, in a salad and remembered how much I liked it.  So yesterday, I decided to strain the Greek yoghurt I had in my fridge, and make it…

‘HEALTHY’ SALTED CARAMEL CHOCOLATE CUPS

My diet has changed quite dramatically recently. I’m not sure when or even if I will return to how I was eating last year and I’m well aware the name of my blog doesn’t match how I’m eating at the moment, so for the time being I’m looking for healthier…

BUTTERNUT SQUASH & SAGE RISOTTO

You know those really irritating people in January who go all ‘holier than thou’? The ones that were so much fun in December suddenly spend all of January banging on about the benefits of kale and quinoa whilst swigging from their NutriBullet cups on their way to the gym or…
