A Short History Of Nearly Everything… About Croissants

November 28, 2014

I think the record should be put out there, I will sell my soul for a good selection of pastries. When my sister and I were younger, we were normally the ones on breakfast duty when we camped in France, Germany and Italy. That meant getting up at an obscene time to beat all of […]


Nature Bars

October 2, 2014

Since moving to Canada, I’ve had a lot of opportunities to really get into the spirit, and get down and dirty with nature. All in innocence of course, I’ve been trekking around the Albertan wilderness with friends and soaking in all the beauty and wonder that this exceptional country has to offer. It’s sometimes hard […]


I Like to Ride My Bicycle

August 15, 2014

In accordance with my concern to stay, at least moderately, healthy in life. A few months back I bought myself a bicycle. Back in England, I had this amazing red town bike that my uncle and aunty very kindly donated to me, and even bought it all the way over from Germany to boot! I […]


A Fork in the Road of Progress

May 23, 2014

I received a simple email the other day, that provoked a real movement in me. It was an automated email by my domain provider asking if I wanted to renew my subscription for another year. First of all, I thought to myself, has it really been a year since I made the switch from my […]

Lemony Fresh

April 18, 2014

Last week I was sat in a coffee shop in Calgary before I started work, sipping on a cup of coffee that was somewhere between insipid and heart-attack creamy, picking at a lemon cake tenuously. The place I happened to be at was not my usual (if I can even call it that) haunt for […]


I’m Still Breathing… In Calgary

March 25, 2014

Howdy y’all, It truly has been a while since my last post, there have been many changes since the last time I wrote on my humble little website, mostly the fact that I’ve moved half way across the world (I won’t rant too much about my personal life, don’t worry). This is more of a […]


Diets, Food Plans and Other General Nonsense

January 17, 2014

In life, there are a few things that I just don’t think I will ever understand. Lets rule out all the silly stuff, like complex maths (or actually, just any maths), astrophysics and how to do my tax returns (every bloody year, you’d think I’d learn). I’m talking about dieting. It is something that, as […]

christmas porridge

The Ghost of Christmas Past

January 3, 2014

Your core porridge recipe, minus the sugar. Topped with some mincemeat left over from Christmas! How bloomin’ delightfully English.

Vanilla Butter Fudge 2.0

December 29, 2013

So, the festive time has absolutely flown by! I’m usually so good at avoiding seasonal diseases, but this year, lo and behold, I’ve been ill. Whinge, whinge, grumble grumble – it was bound to happen eventually, aaaand I’m over it. It’s also kind of difficult to find the motivation to photograph things in Winter in […]

How to Make: Garlic and Chilli Olive Oil

December 3, 2013

There are a few things in my ingredients cupboard that I would really struggle to live without these days. Spices, a good spatula and a constant, and a probably unhealthy, supply of butter. But at one point in your life I think it is unavoidable, and perhaps a little bit healthy, to experience living off […]
