A Short Education on Diwali

November 2, 2013

Diwali, it’s not something that I personally observe, but when it comes to celebrations, especially ones as beautiful and pure as Diwali, it’s hard not to get caught up in all the loveliness. Until recently, I wasn’t entirely familiar with the details of the holiday at all, or the customs. What I had heard of […]

blood clot porridge

Blood Clot Porridge

October 31, 2013

Your core porridge recipe, half the sugar. Add a tablespoon of damson jam and stir in a little. Ridiculously simple, healthy and oddly effective at creeping people out. Happy Halloween to the North Americans, Happy Día de los Muertos to my Mexican friends for the next two days!

Halloween Rage

October 21, 2013

As morbidly curious as I am, I really don’t like Halloween. It’s not the fact that it’s mostly an American holiday which has turned into a day dedicated to begging for cheap confectionery at strangers’ houses. It’s not even the copious amount of slutty bunnies, cats, bees, ladybirds or classic vampires (which I have, unfortunately, […]

salted caramel and strawberry porridge

Salted Pecan and Strawberry Porridge

October 4, 2013

The core porridge recipe, with the sugar halved. Topped with fresh, juicy strawberries and salted caramel and pecan spread (I use Hotel Chocolat, but you can make your own with crushed pecan praline, melted chocolate and sea salt in a blender). It’s kinda like eating dessert for your breakfast, but with a long-lasting energy release […]

The Posh Twix Conundrum

September 23, 2013

People always assume that because I work in a chocolate shop, I don’t like any other brands – I’m not entirely sure why or how they come to that enlightening assumption. While it has significantly changed my tastes, it doesn’t mean that I don’t still indulge in other sweety treats every now and again. I […]

blackberry and apple porridge

Toasted Apple and Smashed Blackberry Porridge

September 18, 2013

So, last week I went foraging… I decided it would be an amazing idea to sneakily rope my friends into coming with too, more hands and all that. I ended up with a huge bag of apples and a rather ample tub of blackberries (one of my favourite berries) at my disposal. So I thought […]

Honey, Honey…

September 8, 2013

…doo doo doo doo doo doo. Ah sugar, sugar. Honey is a wonderful thing, truly. All the way down to it’s molecular level it is blooming marvellous. So much so that I think it is worth a whole mini-post, dedicated to it’s honour. I was reading yesterday about how sealed jars of honey had been […]

The Ghost of Birthday Carrot Cake

August 23, 2013

Since I was a little girl, having a birthday in the Summer was always a blessing. Best chance of good weather and not having school being two of those impeccable bonuses. By far the pinnacle, though, is the fact that I was never in the country. I was always off camping somewhere with my family, […]

light and dark crab meat pasta

Light and Dark Crab and Scallop Pasta

August 18, 2013

So a little while ago, I went through a huge seafood phase. I went to St Ives with my Aunty, Uncle and Cousins and I encountered some of the most delicious seafood I’d ever eaten. I used to be a huge carnivore so this was a bit of a novelty for me. The weather was […]
