I've been seeing a lot of pictures of tomatoes on burrata on Instagram and Pinterest lately, and I'm not sure if it's just having a revival at the moment or the interwebz is reading me again. But after days and days of seeing variations of these flavours every time I check my social media, I … Continue reading Tomatoes, mozzarella and toast!
I come from a multiethnic family - with a strong influence by my Indian paternal grandmother, as she is the matriarch of our large and boisterous family. This influence shows itself a LOT through our food preferences - dad to this day can't go 3 days without having dhal (the special dhal recipe Nini passed … Continue reading Jeera Rice (Cumin Rice)
I've been on this 1500 calorie a day thing for a few weeks now, and plan on keeping it up for a long time so I've been trying to find ways to manage my snacking - which really is the biggest problem area for me! Some of the stuff I've done is swapped out all … Continue reading Cranberry and Almond Granola

Also, since I've … Continue reading Brown Butter Sage Gnocchi with Beef Salami

So I set to the task of making cinnamon rolls, using the recipe I posted two years ago, with the addition of chopped balsamic strawberries snuck into the dough. As much as I love the … Continue reading Easy Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls
On a night out with my friends several years ago, the question "If you were an ice-cream, what flavour would you be?" came up, and mine was butterscotch by general consensus. Recently, this came up again with an entirely different group of people, and the answer was still butterscotch! I suppose I haven't changed much... sickly … Continue reading Butterscotch Sauce!
I seem to have a newfound obsession with passionfruit this year. Last year I couldn't get enough of raspberries, but it looks like 2014 will be a year of this gorgeous, tangy and tart fruit! My current favourite thing is this gorgeous passionfruit curd I whipped up in 15 minutes on a weeknight last week … Continue reading Passionfruit Curd
Sundays tend to tread the very thin line of sadness and happiness, leaving most of us wistful for the short break we just wasted. Not to say that every weekend is wasted, simply that by 5pm on a Sunday afternoon you try to think of what you did all weekend only to come up with … Continue reading Easy homemade lemon curd
I remember my uni days in Bristol, especially on those cold nights when I couldn't be bovvered to put sensible walking shoes on and step outside onto the icy pathways, where I would delve into my cheat pack of frozen oven chips... which I would proceed to cover in home made sesame oil (I had … Continue reading Warning: Highly Addictive Oven Chips
