Blueberry Pie Overnight Oats 035

I’ve had a few recipes up around the web recently! In the pre-and-post-birthday mayhem I haven’t had time to write about these magical birthday breakfast buns yet (photos and recipe coming shortly, though). However while you wait for all that spicy, buttery goodness why not check out my other recipes after the jump!

Valentines Main: Sticky Glazed Meatballs with Cauliflower Quinoa Pilaf (GF with Vegetarian Variation)

We’re onto part two of the Valentine’s meal! Yesterday there were these Lettuce Boats with Sweet Potato, Grapefruit and Paprika Mayo now we’ve got some stellar sticky meatballs with a quinoa pilaf. This is ridonc good. Like so good that I froze the extra veggie ‘meatballs’ and ate them for a week for lunch.

(Also a quick note that I was invited to speak to the lovely Celine of Pure Green Mag on their podcast – if you want you can take a listen here!)

Lettuce Boats with Sweet Potato, Grapefruit and Paprika Mayo

Valentine’s day is rapidly approaching and given that I hardly ever create occasion-themed food I thought it would be a nice change to make a Valentine’s menu plan. I know that anyone living in London is completely screwed if they don’t get a reservation at least a month in advance for any of the popular restaurants! So for anyone stuck without a booking, or people just planning to stay home for the 14th, that’s what these dishes are for!

While it is primarily intended to be for Valentine’s day, I haven’t gone overboard with hearts and all that crap so it’s basically just a nice 3-course dinner for entertaining. [click to continue…]

Ricotta Hotcakes with Honeycomb Butter (Granger & Co. Style)

It’s painfully obvious that I effing love breakfast. Cooking it, eating it, photographing it – all brilliant. I find that I enjoy food so much more if I’ve made it myself and breakfast is just one of those meals that’s not so demanding to cook for. Once all that mixing, measuring, frying and flipping is done, I appreciate the effort and ingredients that I put into making the dish. It’s different at restaurants though as breakfast menus can be super standard (I mean, I’ve only seen a breakfast burrito on one menu in London!?). It really takes something special to make me love a brunch dish at a restaurant so much that I want to replicate it at home.

Brunch at Granger & Co Notting Hill {Review}

February 2, 2015

I hit up one of the most well known West-London brunch spots: Granger & Co. You might be able to tell from the name but this is one of Bill Granger’s restaurants so the food has an obvious Aussie vibe about it. Situated in the always-gorgeous Notting Hill area, it’s really not surprising that people […]

Mason Jar Quinoa Salad with Green Thai-Style Dressing (GF and Vegan)

January 29, 2015

I’m heading off to Leeds again! I’m hoping my poor, London-adapted hands won’t freeze and then fall off.. My extremities aren’t used to *The North* haha. While it’s only a 3 hour journey, my friends and I are catching an afternoon train which poses a dilemma: The dreaded travelling lunch.

My Fave Gluten Free Pancakes (and Sticky Toffee Pudding Pancakes!)

January 21, 2015

Long time, eh? So long in fact that I am yet to say happy new year to you all!! 2014 was probably one of the most draining (but awesome!!) years of my life. Exams blah university applications blah blah the cookbook blah blah. I was saying yesterday on instagram to someone that I think that […]

One tablespoon and Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan)

December 15, 2014

If you’ve ever been on Pinterest before, you’ll probably have seen a few photos pinned from the likes of the dreamy shops of Food52 Provisions, Herriott Grace, Ariel Alasko and Sweet Gum Co. – gorgeously styled images of beautiful hand carved spoons, rolling pins, cheeseboards and bowls. I have definitely spent a lot of time […]

Gingerbread Layer Cake with Salted Whiskey Caramel {+ a Giveaway}

December 11, 2014

When it comes to gingerbread cookies I’ve never been that enthusiastic. I don’t think I’ve ever made them at home and successfully made them taste gingery or spicy enough (anyone got tips!?) but gingerbread cake is a whooole different ball game. I love when it has a syrupy, dense texture with a richness almost comparable to […]
