Mum’s the Word

As Mother’s Day was rapidly approaching, my sister and I decided the best way to spoil our darling mother and grandmother was to invite them over for a no-nonsense afternoon tea. We threw about some ideas as to what delights are considered the epitome of the traditional British excuse for tea and cake. Narrowing down … Continue reading »

Going Organic

Once you’re struck with a passion for something, it’s hard to turn it off when going about your mundane tasks. A chore I refuse to regard as mundane is grocery shopping. Being an avid baker, most of my inspiration stems from casually perusing those sweetly categorised shelves (yes, I’m blessed with a touch of OCD). … Continue reading »

Flustered Custard

Oh how divine those sweet little yellow sandwiches are. The melt in your mouth biscuits filled with that creamy mortar. Such subtlety and for me one of the most underrated things to slam dunk into a cup of tea. Scanning the aisles in the supermarkets is always risky business. Will I find myself staring at … Continue reading »

For the Love of Nuts

Happy Valentine’s Day poppets! On this day of love I hope you all have some gorgeous individual lusting (appropriately and legally)¬†after you, wanting to spoil you rotten like you surely deserve.

Taste the Rainbow

I’ll be the first to admit that I am by no means (in any way!) a professional baker. Often, I’ll find a recipe that I am so eager to try, that I’ll glorify it to the point it becomes the best thing I will ever make. The kind of recipe that entails long hours in … Continue reading »

One Night in Paris

Over the weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to Paris with Marzi of MushandMarzi. We stepped off the Eurostar early Sunday afternoon and stepped right into a race to squeeze in our packed itinerary. I witnessed my first fashion show and was priveledged enough to go backstage and then onwards to two fashion … Continue reading »

Peace & Loaf

I’m not big on making excuses when I have done something wrong. I know what an absolute bugger I have been putting my crusade on hold and for that I sincerely apologise. I can only hope January has been a similarly hectic month for you all and my absence hasn’t caused too much of a … Continue reading »

Holding on to the Holidays

Christmas is over and now that the New Year has begun we must focus on what is ahead rather than what has been and gone. Saying that, I can’t help but try and inject some festivity into this otherwise gloomy January. It’s a shock to the system when you’re plunged into the first of the … Continue reading »

Brownie Bites

I find I take full advantage of my friends growing older. It’s the opportune time to bake some treats that aren’t up to me to consume in entirety. As a close friend of mine recently turned 21, I decided to reap the benefits. When baking for a party there are a few things that need … Continue reading »

Last of Two Thousand and Eleven

Whilst in Aberdeen one cold and rainy day, I had this incredible hankering for something soft, sweet and doughy. My resources were depleted and only a few ingredients lay in my kitchen. I scanned my cookery books and found the only recipe that I could make without having to journey from the safety of my … Continue reading »
